I learned this tip the hard way, by the clogging of my sewer lines. A liquid detergent is best to use for your laundry: Cheer, Tide,and many others brands. I was advised by my plumber that powdered detergents can turn to 'grease' in your sewer lines, thus clogging them! YES! I have not had a clogged drain in that area since switching to liquid detergents 5+ years ago! Same usage works with liquid detergent in your automatic dishwasher. Switch and ease your mind of clogged drains.!
