Ahum.... what is so different here? Most brands are being manufatured by the same companies anyway, so not much difference there. Check the manufacturer mentioned on the bottle /can, most of the times it is Unilever.

Branding is just different from Europe or USA, but for the rest it is all the same.

It clearly states as well: for colors or just for white clothings.

Sorry guys but why is it so difficult to get some help from people these days? I mean, I just asked a simple question, if you are not interested in helping that's fine but why you have to practice your irony in here...what a waste of time!!!

Hope you never find yourselfs in the need of help in even the most simple things.

Hey man....

I was serious, it is all the same stuff. Read the labels and get a color one for colored clothings, use the one that says white for your white textiles.

I have used Amway liquid which is good for all clothing. They also have a All Fabric Bleach which I have used.
Again, Eric wasn't being funny, he was serious. Just read the labels on the different brands. I have never heard of anyone ruining their clothing by using the wrong detergent. Maybe they did have a problem when they used bleach when they shouldn't have.
Good Luck! :)

Hi comingfromMX

I think I know what you mean, there are some pretty harsh powders etc out there. Maybe the others haven't experienced it much. I know from bad experience in HK that not all washing powders/liquids are the same.

Even some of the ones made by the big manufacturers with the same names can be different in different countries. Some of the stuff in HK practically stripped all the colour from your clothes (and that was the stuff designated as colour wash!) but it did get them clean...obviously there was bleach in there somewhere. I thought I was playing it safe by using brands I knew, but in the end I learnt to read the labels.

I have tried quite a few of the liquids here and they seem pretty good, can't recommend one over the other really, but I know I haven't had any problems! What Eric said is right, Matney too, just read the labels. It really comes down to finding the one you like most. :)

i think dynamo is the best....if your using liquid..........yeah....and liquid detergents don't contain any bleaching agent which is good for your fabrics in the long run.....i mean they won't destroy the clothing fabrics that easily compared with the powder type........as to clothes that stain......for guys like me.....i only remember some coloured clothes that shouldn't be placed with whites.....just in case the dyes from the clothings come off and retain itself into the whites.......
