High Foaming: The Necessary Feature of Laundry Foam Detergents?
We have all seen it. Foam appears whenever some form of soap is used, when we wash hands, put shampoo on hair, wash dishes, or do the laundry. It’s that bubbly thing, right? But what makes the laundry foam detergent bubbly, and does that have any meaning at all, besides looking like fun? As it happens – it does.
Detergent Pods and How to Use Them
Although the plastic many-in-one detergent pods, as we know them, seem like a supermodern product—the concept actually originates a half-century back. The first laundry pods, or better said tabs, were first founded in the 1960s. It was a compact tab comprising detergent powder in the granular form, invented by the Procter & Gamble science team. A decade later, the tablets vanished from the market, making space for the new products.
It wasn’t until the middle 1990s, that not one but two detergent manufacturers decided to relaunch a convenient single-dose packaging. Unilever and Henkel both introduced a similar product – detergent pods, followed by a variety of colorful, soluble sachets. At the beginning of the millennium, also arrived powder dishwasher tabs, firstly sold in Europe.
And now they are here to stay.
Powder VS Liquid Laundry Detergent – And the Winner Is…
What is the reason to create different products if they contain the same ingredients and do the same job? The issue of powder VS liquid laundry detergent seems redundant at first glance. However, while they might appear the same – variations in functionality, efficiency, and quality can make a world of difference in the end.
First, there was water, and later came ash, followed by a variety of soap innovations. Then someone invented powder detergent and shook the laundry washing scene. Liquid detergents appeared decades later. It is kind of natural to presume that newer is absolutely better.
But is it?
Let’s see what’s in the backstage of the powder vs. liquid laundry detergent battle. We’ll examine the target focus, similarities and differences, along with the pros and cons of each.
Powder Detergent: Ingredients and Manufacturing Process Explained
From ancient times, people were manufacturing some kind of soaps. Even today, the difference between soap and detergent powder is strict – but not huge.
Traditional methods commonly included boiling fats and ashes. Modern production, although greatly improved, relies on the same essential properties.
While the powder detergent is dry and enhanced with a range of technologically advanced additives – it’s still technically based on fatty acids and lye.

What is Liquid Detergent Made Of? (and 15 Reasons Why it Matters)

With the addition of enzymes, the idea of “stubborn stains” started to gradually disappear, but smudges of grease and hard water still caused a lot of headaches. And then came the liquid washing detergent.
