Cold Water Washing

Category Laundry

I was wondering if anyone knew why some laundry detergents are better at removing dirt in cold water than hot?

Thanks,

Tide has a new detergent made specifically for cold water, named "Tide Cold Water". I purchased it on sale and have tried it- but haven't really noticed a difference from regular tide.

Tide and Purex both have cold water formulas--but I haven't tried either yet.

I usually use cold water for my colored items. The best thing that I have learned is to always pretreat any stains.

I always use Tide and have never done a load of laundry on anything but cold. I think buying the cold-water version of Tide it totally unnecessary. If I have bad stains I spot treat with Dawn. I use oxy-clean for my whites. I dissolve it in hot water, fill the rest of the washer with cold and soak the whites overnight. They come out really white.

I haven't found Tide to be any more effective at getting my clothes cleaner than any other brands; and Tide is much more expensive. I find it to be overrated.
