Why do you need liquid powder and where to pour it
Many housewives do not even pay attention to the shelves with liquid detergents and buy dry powder out of habit. The reason is not only in their cost, but also in the lack of an idea of where to pour the liquid powder in the washing machine. This issue requires consideration, since the method of washing depends on the type of clothing, the machine and the powder itself. How to choose a good product and how to handle it, you will learn from this article.
Which liquid detergent is better
Manufacturers offer products with a different spectrum of action. They produce gels for washing colored fabrics, for delicate fabrics, for removing scale in the machine and others. It is logical that for a specific purpose it is better to choose a liquid powder with a special purpose. For example, to wash black items, choose a product labeled “Black”. There are universal liquid powders that deal with many types of dirt, and take care of fabrics and washing machines. The powders of the Persil, Prox brands have proven themselves well.
Erase with liquid powder
So you’ve decided to wash with a liquid detergent. To wash successfully the first time, do not be lazy and study the instructions, and both: to the powder and to the washing machine.
You can pour liquid powder in several ways: into a special compartment or directly into the drum. Pay special attention to the recommendations for the machine, since in some devices, loading powder into the drum itself is prohibited.
Not all liquid detergents can be added with the laundry. There may be a limitation on the label: avoid direct contact with things. Such a concentrate can only be poured into a special compartment.
Standard machines have three compartments for detergents. In which one should the gel composition be poured? The first compartment is designated by the letter A or the number 1 (I). It is intended for the soaking step. It is extremely rare to pour gel concentrate there, and it is not always allowed by the design of the compartment. If the contamination is strong and old, use the first section, but do not forget to select the appropriate mode, otherwise the product will not be used.
The second compartment. B, or 2 (II). is intended for the main wash cycle. Liquid powder is poured there. Special products with a whitening function are also placed there. In some machines, the departments are equipped with a special lid or a removable partition for liquid powder.
If you did not find instructions in the instructions, then rely on the volume of the compartment. The largest compartment is intended for the main wash.
The third compartment is usually smaller than the others. Designated as C or 3 (III). Its purpose is the rinsing phase. Usually a fabric softener, antistatic agent, or emollient is added there. You can calculate the rinsing department by the markings. The maximum fluid level is marked with the word “Max” or an asterisk. You can add a small amount of concentrate to this compartment. It rinses out well from clothes, so it will not leave streaks, but will only improve the washing result.
The second method of loading is directly into the drum. Its advantage is that the container and hose remain clean after washing. Manufacturers often add a measuring container or dispensing cap to the product. A product is poured directly into it, the amount of which is easy to track. Next, the container is immersed in the drum along with the clothes, and the wash starts.
Miss Clean magazine advises choosing the second method for older devices that are so worn out that water has become difficult to flow into the powder compartments. Adding gel directly to the drum saves powder and extends the life of the machine. Another method is recommended for washing baby clothes. Products for this purpose are sold complete with a measuring cup.
- When washing with a liquid detergent, give priority to the recommendations in the instructions for the machine, and not to the powder.
- It is not necessary to follow the dosage indicated on the label. A large amount of liquid product is not necessary: for a standard machine with a load of 5-6 kg, 1-2 tablespoons are enough. Try washing with less product first. If the contamination does not disappear, then increase the portion of the powder.
- The liquid agent is effective at temperatures no higher than 60 degrees. Choose the appropriate mode.
- Gel capsules can only be placed in the drum.
- It is strictly forbidden to put bleach, stain remover and other aggressive agents into the drum. This will definitely ruin things.
- To skip the soak cycle, apply liquid powder directly to the stain and hold for a few minutes to an hour. Then just wash the thing without adding anything.
Please note: it is strictly forbidden to load the gel agent into the powder compartment and the drum at the same time! Both things and the car can be damaged from an overdose. Unexpected chemical reactions are not excluded.
It should be understood that liquid powder cannot work a miracle, despite its versatility. Any thing sooner or later wears out and gets washed. The liquid concentrate can prolong the life of the garment, but it may not return it to its original color and shape. Always choose a trusted manufacturer. It is better to give more money for a reliable product than to buy new clothes to replace the damaged ones. Otherwise, the gel formulation is clearly worth a try. Successful washings!
Washing machines with containers for liquid powders
If there is a special container for liquid powder in the washing machine, then this is great. a large amount of gel is poured here, which is taken and consumed automatically, depending on the volume of the loaded laundry. There is usually another container next to the liquid powder container for the conditioner. Such washing machines are very convenient, as they independently determine the dosage of “consumables”.
Manufacturers often overestimate the recommended dosage of liquid powder in order to increase its consumption and thereby increase sales. We advise you to experiment with the dosage yourself, and if you manage to achieve an acceptable washing quality with a smaller amount of powder, reduce its dosage.
Pour liquid powder into such washing machines in large quantities. up to the maximum mark. Some models of washing machines are equipped with boxes with a capacity of up to 1.5 liters and even more, which can be enough for a month of operation. As soon as the liquid level approaches the minimum mark, the user will be shown a corresponding notification. it will be necessary to restore the level to the specified mark.
How and where liquid powders are poured in automatic washing machines
Many housewives have switched to liquid laundry detergents. These products have good characteristics and are suitable for almost all types of fabrics, including delicate ones. Given their widespread prevalence, let’s try to figure out where to pour liquid powder in the washing machine to start the next cycle. And first, let’s consider the main advantages and disadvantages of liquid products.
Machines with special trays
We turn to the next option. to a washing machine equipped with special trays for liquid powders. They solve all user problems. Firstly, you do not need to think about where to pour the gel for washing. open the tray, find the compartments with Roman numerals I and II, pour the required amount of gel into them. Now you can start the program and enjoy a quality wash using liquid powder. And secondly, the problem with preliminary soaking will be solved.
I denotes the presoak tray. They have a small capacity. check how much liquid powder you need to soak the laundry before the main wash. The number II denotes a tray for pouring detergent used for the same main wash. it has an increased volume. By the way, both trays have different measuring pointers for dry and gel SMS.
Pour liquid powder into a regular machine
Let’s see how to use liquid powder in an automatic machine designed for traditional dry SMS. there are most of such devices. Here you can pour the gel directly into the dish for regular detergent, or directly into the laundry drum. Before that, you need to read the operating instructions for the washing machine and find out if the washing machine is designed for this.
Liquid powder for washing in conventional washing machines can be poured directly into the laundry drum. Take any suitable product, for example, Laska, measure out the required amount with a measuring cup, pour it onto the laundry, close the loading door and start the program. Please note that if you need to pre-soak, then this scheme will not work for you. here you need a washing machine with support for liquid powders.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Liquid Products
Liquid detergent for washing machines is a gel-like liquid with lathering properties. According to its characteristics, it is not only not inferior to traditional free-flowing powders, but also surpasses them. Let’s take a look at the main benefits of these innovative laundry assistants:
- The ability to use liquid powder with any kind of fabric, from simple synthetics to delicate silk;
- It is optimal to wash with gel for the reasons that it is completely washed out of fabrics. much better than any dry products. This is important when washing children’s clothes, as well as for those who are allergic to household chemicals;
- Liquid powders are excellent bleaches for colored and white fabrics. Also on sale there are modifications for black clothes;
- The bathroom does not carry fragrances. bottles with gels are tightly closed with caps that do not let smells through;
- Gels can be poured directly onto stains, which will only improve their effectiveness;
- Efficiency is already a controversial issue. It is necessary to pour gel into the washing machine in smaller quantities, but here its higher cost comes into play, compared to traditional dry SMS (synthetic detergents).
Thus, liquid washing machine powder is a great alternative. But in any barrel of honey you can easily find a fly in the ointment. here are the main disadvantages of the gel:
- The increased cost of gel products. liquid powder will not please those who are used to saving;
- Not every washing machine is designed for these funds (but we will tell you how and in which compartment to pour the gel in order to get around this limitation);
- Gel is easy to spill and slightly harder to collect than traditional dry SMS.
At the same time, the advantages of liquid powders easily outweigh their disadvantages.
Many people mistakenly believe that if liquid powders are better for washing clothes, then much more things can now be put in the washer. This erroneous assumption can lead not only to a deterioration in the quality of washing, but also to breakage of the wash itself.
Liquid Powder Capsules
If there is no container for liquid powder, and the manufacturer does not allow it to be poured into the tray, we can use special balls in the form of capsules. Gel is poured into them, after which they are sent to the drum. then we turn on the selected program and wait for the end of the cycle. The balls gradually release the detergent absorbed into the fabric, providing a gentle wash. Together with the detergent, special bleaches for colored and black fabrics can be poured into them.
By the way, the same balls are actively used by some people to bookmark classic dry SMS. Many of us are aware of the problem with powders that do not wash out well from trays. And when this problem will be solved is not very clear, because the fact remains. washing machines cannot learn to completely remove SMS from trays. The solution to the problem is the aforementioned balls. ordinary dry SMS are poured into them, after which the balls themselves are sent to the drum. Water entering them will gradually wash out the detergent, without staining the trays. The main thing is to get cheap balls without falling for the tricks of some sellers selling them at exorbitant prices.
We deal with the compartments
Ultramodern models of washing machines are already equipped with a special compartment for liquid powder. For this product, old-style models are also suitable, in which the detergent drawer has 3 compartments. The number two or the letter “B” denote the compartment for the main wash. It is usually the largest and most voluminous. This is where it is recommended to pour liquid powder. The compartment with the number “one” or the letter “A” is intended for soaking. It can also be filled with liquid powder if you need a pre-wash.
A compartment with a flower or an asterisk is used for conditioner and rinse aid. If you don’t have fabric softener available, you can replace it with liquid powder. But this will be an unreasonable waste of concentrated gel, because it costs more in comparison with its free-flowing counterparts. Therefore, the liquid powder should be poured into the main compartment. After washing, the laundry will be soft anyway. Let’s talk a little more about the washing machine and liquid powder. After all, there are a few more nuances that Honor has.
What capacity to give preference?
As mentioned, liquid powder comes in several forms:
- In capsules. They are good in that you do not need to open the container and measure out the required amount of the product with a glass. Just put them in the washing machine and select the desired mode. Capsules are similar to sachets, but you do not need to open them. The shell will dissolve by itself in water.
- In bottles. This is the classic version. Suitable for those who like something familiar and familiar. There is usually a handy handle and a cap that can be used as a measuring cup. Most manufacturers have started to make double lids with internal drain. This allows gel residues to drain back into the bottle and not onto the floor when you screw the cap back on.
The question of where to pour and how to wash with liquid powder of one type or another, we will consider separately.
What is Liquid Powder?
It is a gel-like stain remover. Sold in the form of water-soluble capsules or liquid in plastic bottles. This powder is very concentrated, so very little is required to wash it.
Dosage of liquid powder
Since the gel is highly concentrated, one or two tablespoons of the product is enough to wash 5 kilograms of laundry in 50 liters of water. precise recommendations for the dosage of liquid powder, each manufacturer indicates on the label.
What is special about the composition of liquid powder?
Liquid powder has many benefits:
- Copes with different types of pollution.
- Perfectly rinses out of fabric.
- It dissolves well in both hot and cold water.
- Does not leave streaks.
- Does not shed fabric.
- Softens material.
- Convenient to store. You cannot wake him up. It will not get wet or turn into a lump.
- Has several options for application. Therefore, the hostesses give different advice on where to pour liquid powder in the washing machine.
Whether to add conditioner for aroma?
If you wash with liquid powder, then, as we found out, the rinse aid drawer can and should be left empty. If it is important for you that after washing the laundry smells good, then just get a gel with some kind of aroma. Odorless liquid powders are also commercially available.
When to use liquid powder?
This gel is perfect for daily gentle washing. It is also used if you just need to give freshness to the laundry. But liquid powder will not be able to completely cope with old and oily stains.
Where to pour liquid powder in a Samsung washing machine?
Most housewives who have been using a Samsung washing machine for a long time can say with accuracy which compartment to fill in the powder, and where to pour the conditioner and bleach. But the development of the industry does not stand still, and today many manufacturers produce liquid powder. If you pour it into the powder compartment, it will quickly drain into the tub, even before you start washing. Therefore, we will dwell on this issue in detail and find out where to pour liquid powder in a Samsung washing machine.
Each powder compartment in a Samsung washing machine is signed. As a rule, the compartment with the Roman numeral I is intended for a prewash. Therefore, not all housewives use it constantly, but only if washing with soaking is necessary. Therefore, it is necessary to fill the compartment with powder if you have selected a program with prewash.
Liquid powder can be poured into this compartment of the tray, but only if it has a plastic partition, which will retain the product in the compartment. If there is no partition or grooves for its installation, then you need to pour the gel directly into the drum of the washing machine, but only before loading the laundry, so that it has time to drain. But remember that during the main phase, in the middle of the wash cycle, you need to open the powder receptacle and fill compartment II with liquid powder.
Important! If the machine was equipped with a special dispenser for liquid products (a small plastic container resembling a ball or a glass with holes), then the liquid powder should be poured exclusively into it. We put the prepared container into the drum along with the laundry.
This compartment is used for the main wash. It is in this compartment that you add the powdery agent and the liquid powder should also be poured here. However, so that the agent does not immediately drain into the drum, a special dispensing container or partition is required. If they were not included with the machine, then they can be purchased separately. Or you can simply pour liquid powder into an empty drum and then fill it with laundry.
Do not pour liquid cleaner directly onto dirty laundry. The concentrated gel can severely damage the fibers of the fabric or lighten the areas where paint and gel come into contact with the fabric. If the package included a special dispenser container for a liquid product, then it is better to use it and put it directly into the drum.
A small compartment with a flower on it is for the air conditioner. It is strictly forbidden to add liquid powder to it, since the washing machine uses the agent from this compartment only in the rinse mode. Just imagine what will happen when powder gets into the drum during rinsing. Liquid particles will remain on the fibers of the fabric, which can lead to the development of an allergic reaction.
Do not add a high dosage of conditioner. There is a special mark on the walls of the compartment, up to which the agent should be poured. In high doses, the conditioner may not completely wash off the fibers, which can cause allergies. There is one important rule to remember. If the manufacturer of the conditioner or liquid powder recommended a certain dosage of the detergent for one wash, then you can safely reduce it by a third, because the quality of the wash will not be affected by this. And the dosage is overestimated in order for the buyer to buy more and more products.
Summing up, we can say that we have answered the question posed in detail. Now you know exactly which compartment you should pour liquid powder into your Samsung washing machine. If we have not raised any important questions for you, then you can safely ask them in the comments to this publication. We will be happy to answer them.

Tray device in different models of washing machines
Consider the various designs of powder receptacles in different washing machines.
ELECTROLUX EWW51486HW is a washing machine in which the tray has the most common shape, consists of 3 compartments.

These are special capsules that the manufacturer makes for such a machine. The capsule contains as much detergent as needed for one wash cycle. At the end of the program, the capsule must be removed.
Instructions for use
Liquid detergent is a gel-like, concentrated detergent that contains not only substances that wash away dirt, but also substances for softening water and softening fabrics.
On the bottles of such products, the manufacturer indicates how much should be poured per wash cycle, depending on the pollution and the degree of water hardness. As a rule, this is 75-150 ml of powder. However, at such a consumption, it is possible to work with one powder, which is beneficial to the manufacturer. Therefore, do not trust the information on the label.
Skillful housewives found out that for effective washing of things with a gel-like powder, 1-2 tablespoons of concentrated detergent are enough. over, if there are especially dirty items of clothing, then they can be smeared with a product in advance and let them lie down. This consumption of the product refers to washing machines with an average load of laundry of 5-6 kg and a water consumption of 35-50 liters. In machines with a larger drum capacity and water consumption, when fully loaded, 3-4 tablespoons of the product may be required.
As for where to pour the powder, it is difficult to answer unequivocally. Everything will depend on the model and manufacturer of the automatic machine. In most “washing machines” the powder cuvette is divided into three compartments, one of them is intended for dry powder of the main wash, it is designated II or B.

That is why, before pouring, you need to study the operating instructions for the machine. In such cases, the washing gel is poured into a special container, which is placed with the clothes in the drum.
In modern machines, the powder cuvette has a special device, thanks to which liquid powder can be poured into the cuvette compartment. Top-loading machines may have a special flap in the liquid compartment.
Liquid powders: pros and cons
Liquid detergents are gaining more and more popularity, since housewives note enough advantages in their use. Let’s list them:
- such a powder is better rinsed out of clothes than dry, and does not leave marks on clothes, therefore it is recommended for washing bulky clothes, outerwear and wool products;
- liquid detergent dissolves faster in water and penetrates better into the fibers of the fabric, providing an effective wash;
- liquid powder is suitable for washing delicate fabrics;
- it is convenient to store a bottle of washing gel, while it is hermetically sealed, and chemical odors do not disappear;
- components of high-quality liquid powders are more environmentally friendly and safe, such powders are less likely to cause allergies;
- liquid powder is better washed out of the powder receptacle.
Among the disadvantages of powder in liquid form is its high cost. However, this is subjective. And one more disadvantage is that you can wash things with liquid powder at a temperature of no more than 60 0 С.
So, you need to use gels for washing in an automatic machine not according to the instructions indicated on the detergent, but according to the instructions of the washing machine. It can indicate not only where to pour the detergent correctly, but also how much is needed.
Where to pour liquid powder
Liquid detergents are gradually replacing conventional detergents. They have good characteristics and are suitable for a variety of fabrics. Further there will be detailed information and instructions for using concentrates in washing machines.
Varieties of liquid products
Similar products are available in special capsules and bottles. The first option is very convenient in terms of dosage. the liquid is already packaged in portions in sachets, which dissolve during washing.
They look like small pads of different shapes and colors. They are simply placed in the drum before the procedure itself.
This does not affect the efficiency of washing, but it does affect the emotional perception of the product. Such a step is just a marketing ploy.
There are the following types of products:
- universal. used for any type of fabrics and colors;
- highly specialized. suitable for specific materials, such as silk or wool;
- products divided by color. separately for color, white or black;
- additional. stain removers, oxygen bleaches.
You need to use according to the instructions of the washing machine. It often contains information on how much and where to fill.
Where to pour the concentrate
The loading location, as indicated above, depends on its consistency. The capsules are placed in a drum, after which the laundry is put. A very concentrated gel is poured in reverse order.
First, the dosage of the detergent is measured using the dosing cap. Then things are loaded and the gel is poured. It is more expedient to load less concentrated products in a special tray.
Each washing machine has a powder receptacle with three divisions:
- The first compartment on the left is designated “A” or number 1. It is intended for soaking. The tool is added there in rare cases, in some machines it is not allowed at all by the design of the compartment. Concentrates are loaded here in case of prewash.
- The second compartment is designated “B” or number 2. It is intended for the main wash. This is the largest compartment of the three. it is in it that liquid powders are loaded.
- The third compartment is used for rinses, conditioners, antistatic agents. This is the smallest department of all. Indicated by “C”, number 3, an asterisk or other symbol.
As noted above, when using the gels in the washing machine, the softener compartment remains empty. The designation of the compartments may differ depending on the make of the automatic machine. Modern models already have a dedicated compartment for such gels.
Here the machine itself determines the dosage of consumables. As a result, the number of compartments in modern models is already four. The collection and consumption takes place automatically, taking into account the loaded laundry.
If the manufacturer does not allow loading the gel into the tray, while there is no special container, you should use dissolving capsules or balls.
In the latter, a substance is poured, which, during the washing process, is gradually released and absorbed into the fabric. Often such balls are used for washing outerwear, in particular, down jackets. They prevent the filler from clumping and provide gentle care.
Advantages and disadvantages
Manufacturers identify a number of advantages of gels over conventional powders.
Among the positive aspects of using:
- dissolve faster and, accordingly, quickly penetrate into the fibers of the tissue;
- do not leave white streaks;
- they act softer and more carefully, without destroying the fibers and without tearing off the color;
- better rinsed out of linen and things;
