With so many different brands of laundry detergents out there, you might be wondering: Which one should I buy? Just pick whatever that's on sale? Or perhaps, the one your mom always use? Besides, mom knows what's best, right?

Is liquid or powder laundry detergent better?

Honestly, they’re both the same. You should only differentiate them based on the type of washing machine you use at home: Liquid for top load, powder for front load, but that doesn’t really matter as well. However, liquid detergent works better on stubborn, greasy stains while powder ones are great for mud and soil. The truth is, no laundry detergents are created equal, but thankfully, we made it easier for you with a list of detergents that suit your respective needs.
