If you’ve purchased a new washing machine, listen up: Don’t use DIY laundry detergent for your machine. While handmade detergents are a good all-natural alternative, they have a tendency to clog modern-day washing machines. With household appliances becoming more high-tech, that means untested detergents can cause internal havoc. Using a DIY detergent can also void the warranty of your washing machine. Instead, look for commercial brands that are highly concentrated and made with plant-based ingredients. And use your DIY detergents for handwashing purposes only.
