SDA Answers Questions About High Efficiency Detergents

December 9, 2005

The Soap and Detergent Association (SDA), which represents the nation’s cleaning products industry, has published a free, online guide for consumers, “High Efficiency Washers and Detergents: Working in Harmony to Save Energy and Water.” Detergents formulated for high efficiency washers work with energy saving technology to provide the best possible cleaning by using only 20 to 66% of the amount of water used in traditional washers.
SDA’s publication, available at www.cleaning101.com/laundry, describes how high efficiency detergents and washers work, advises how to use various laundry products in high efficiency machines, and contains tips on how to properly maintain an high efficiency washer. With rising energy costs and many communities facing water shortages, the technologies behind high efficiency detergents and washers can help families realize long- term cost savings.
