What is the best detergent to use in my laundry?

Avoid clogged drain pipes

One good way to avoid clogging the drain pipes is to stop using powdered soaps. These soaps can turn into 'grease' in your pipes, and eventually cause clogging. Change your washing detergent to liquid, only!! Both in the dishwasher and the clothes washing machine. A few years back, my plumber found lots of grease in my pipes. "But I don't put any grease down my drains...not at all!!" I told him. This experienced plumber advised me of the problems of using powdered soaps...I changed, and have not had troubles since.
