Hi all!

I wanted to know if you have found a good powder or liquid detergent for laundry. I have problems especially with my toddler clothing, food stains (chocolate, ghematoghen) and socks.

I have a washing machine Candy, a little old. And I feel that Russian soaps not rinsed well.

On the other hand, I wanted to know if you have tried the soap Heitzman for colored clothing. The soap costs about 700 rubles big box (or about 140 per kilogram) and in Moscow I have seen in large boxes only.

Is it worth the expense? There are better alternatives?

Thanks in advance.

I used Ushastaya Nyanya for all my colored clothes. I wash them at 40 degrees and it gets them clean. It's not expensive; it dissolves well; and it rinses out well, without leaving any scent behind. It's non-allergenic for babies clothing.

We've used both Ushastaya Nyan' and Aistyonok. - the latter extensively, but my wife has complained that it doesn't really wash stains out.

There's a more expensive Frau Schmidt which my wife has been happy with so far...

We use Persil only, my grandmother did so already and no reason to change. why invent the wheel new?
and no stuff for rinsing.9% cheapest Russian apple vinegar. A soup spoon full for one load of laundry. not more and indeed your laundry will smell of salad.
with Persil though be careful. There are two kinds. One in a glossy smooth packet and the other one i na more or less plain carton. the plain carton is cheaper and is a -fake-. cheap imitation and does not wash as one would expect from Persil. seldom found in supermarkets but at kiosks or small shops. be aware.
