Detergent - what to buy?

Postby solban » Sun, 27 Aug 2017 12:10 pm

Hi!
What detergent do you use? Do you use different detergent for different clothes?

I've just moved to Singapore from Northern Europe. Back home I would use one detergent for coloured clothes, one for light/white clothes and one for wool. I realize that I don't need the last one here, but I went to the grocery store today and it seemed to me that they only use one detergent for all clothes. Is that correct? What should I buy to keep my dark clothes dark and my white clothes white?

My washing machine doesn't have hot water supply and I will be drying my clothes outside.

I believe it goes like this: you have a basic, general detergents and you can combine them separately with "bleaches" (there is a variety) for the color and white stuff if needed.
