Washing powder is firmly rooted in everyday life, almost completely displacing soap. In fact, a dry product is a concentrated complex of surfactants that dissolve pieces of fat, help fine dust and dirt move away from fabric fibers, and remove odors.

The team analyzed popular powders for light garments, researched a range of gels for the care of light garments, and compiled a rating that included safe and effective products.
