I just got a new LG HE front-loading washer (love it)! I am using regular Clorox (love it also)! Should I switch to Clorox® High Efficiency Bleach? I have heard stories (and seen videos online) of terrible over-sudsing when using non-HE detergent (because of the surfactants, I think). Any advice?
Congrats on the new HE washer, and thanks for being a loyal Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® user.
Your fears about over-sudsing from using regular laundry products in the HE machine are very valid. As for converting to Clorox® High Efficiency Bleach, I definitely recommend it. We developed it specifically for the new HE washers. Its benefits include:
There are no sudsy surfactants as well, so that eliminates that concern.
Also if you plan to use our Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster for your colored loads, make sure you add it into the DETERGENT dispenser rather than the bleach dispenser.
