Detergent powder is a cleaning product used for various purposes, primarily for washing laundry. Its main functions are:

  1. Cleaning Clothes: Detergent powder is most commonly used to clean and remove dirt, stains, oils, and odors from clothing and fabrics when used in a washing machine or during hand washing.

  2. Stain Removal: It helps break down and remove different types of stains, including food, grease, grass, blood, and more, from fabric surfaces.

  3. Whitening: Some detergent powders include bleach or brightening agents to help whiten white clothing and maintain their brightness.

  4. Odor Control: Detergent powders often contain ingredients that help eliminate unpleasant odors from clothing, leaving them smelling fresh.

  5. Fabric Care: Many detergents are formulated to be gentle on fabrics to prevent damage and maintain the quality and color of clothes over time.

  6. Versatile Cleaning: Detergent powder can also be used for cleaning other surfaces, such as bathroom tiles, kitchen countertops, and even some dishes, depending on the product's formulation.

  7. Industrial and Commercial Cleaning: In addition to household use, detergent powders are used in various industries for cleaning purposes, such as in commercial laundry facilities, hotels, and restaurants.

It's important to follow the instructions on the detergent packaging to ensure you use the right amount for your laundry and washing machine type. Using too much detergent can lead to excess soap residue on your clothes, while using too little may not effectively clean them. Additionally, detergent powders come in various formulations, including those designed for high-efficiency (HE) washing machines, so choosing the right type for your needs is essential.
