You cannot pour laundry detergent into the washing machine drum: here's why
Your washing machine needs regular cleaning. An unpleasant odor from the drum, mold under the rubber seals, and contamination of the powder compartment are just a few of the troubles that can lead to serious malfunctions over time.
The detergent container is the most commonly soiled area. Powder residues can become so hard that it is very difficult to clean them. Perhaps that's why some people are used to pouring detergent directly into the drum of the washing machine. Why you shouldn't do this, read the OBOZREVATEL article.
At first glance, it may seem that washing with powder in the drum has a lot of advantages. Energy consumption is reduced, detergent compartments do not get dirty, and no clogging of the nozzles occurs. But in reality, everything is not so positive.
It's not for nothing that manufacturers have provided a special container where the powder should be poured. Water enters these containers under high pressure. For the powder to work well, a large amount of foam is needed. It is under pressure that the powder dissolves and foams to better clean things.
Pouring the detergent directly into the machine, i.e. into the drum, actually reduces the efficiency of the wash. It will take longer for the foam to form, the cycle time will increase, and as a result, so will the energy consumption.
Add to this aesthetic defects - powder granules can leave stains on light-colored clothes.
Only special detergents that are designed for this purpose can be put into the drum: capsules, cubes, and laundry detergent tablets.
By the way, the laundry detergent compartment should be cleaned at least once every two months to prevent the remaining granules from drying out to a very hard state. You can wash the container with a toothbrush and simple and effective ingredients. Read the article to find out which ones.
