We are always on the lookout for products that serve multiple purposes. For those of us who have front load washing machines, we need a specialist detergent that not only washes our clothes in a gentle and effective manner, but also ensures that our machine stays in top notch condition. For effective washing results, front load washing machines need a specialist liquid detergent that can work well with its water level and motion. It should also leave behind no residue on clothes or in the machine.
To find an efficient and compatible detergent for a front load washing machine, we asked a panel of moms to try and test different detergent brands in the market. Based on their experience, Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent emerged as the popular choice for washing clothes in front load washing machines. Since these mothers use detergents to deal with tough stains on a daily basis, we could trust their choice of detergent to ease our laundry woes. The list of parameters used for the survey is as follows:
Suitability for front load washing machines
Performance on tough stains
Ability to dissolve
Care for clothes
Value for money
1. Suitability for Front-Load Washing Machines - Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent 4.5/5
In our experience, we’ve learnt that a front load washing machine requires a special detergent, one that dissolves quickly in desired water level environments of the machine, ensuring effortless removal of stains and no residue in the machine or clothes. In addition to this, a specialist liquid detergent for front load washing machines is designed to produce foam as per the machine type which ensures no choking or clogging of pipes. It also minimizes scaling issues.
Our panel of moms considered Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent to be fit for front load washing machines because it meets all the above-mentioned criteria. Says mom Sabiha Gulrays, “It is perfectly suitable for front load washing machines. It is easy to use in a washing machine and the clothes come out really clean”
2. Performance on Tough Stains - Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent 4/5
We’ve learnt that laundry liquids contain specially selected surfactants that help in the removal of tough stains in the machine itself. More often than not, kids’ clothes tend to get dirty with the most stubborn stains, including that of mud, curry, ketchup, sweat, chocolate, grease, ink and so on. Not all detergents are able to get rid of these stains in the machine itself. In most cases, an additional step of soaking or hand-washing is needed to make these clothes spotless again. Hence, it is important to find the right detergent for your front load that can help eliminate difficult stains in the machine itself.
Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent won the hearts of all moms when it came to stain removal in the machine. Says Dr. Faiza Shafeeq, “I’m a mom of two baby girls who tend to spill food on their clothes all the time. They roll on the floor and do all sorts of activities which ends up getting their clothes full of stains. The good thing is that Surf Excel removes tough stains and turmeric too. I’m really happy with its performance.“
According to our panel of moms, getting out easy stains like dirt and dust isn’t a big deal in the case of most detergents. The real test lies in their ability to take out the tough ones- coffee stains, turmeric and so on. Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent, is able to tackle these stubborn stains, that too in the machine itself.
3. Ability To Dissolve - Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent 4.5/5
Dissolution in water plays an important role in the removal of stains. We’ve found that regular/ordinary washing powder does not dissolve easily and leaves residue in the machine as well as on clothes. It may also not be as efficient in cleaning stains as a liquid detergent. A liquid detergent tackles all three aspects i.e. stain removal, no residue on machines and on clothes, better dissolution, in a much better way.
Our mothers report that Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent dissolves easily in water, even cold water, and leaves behind no residue after wash. After using Surf Excel Matic, mommy Yashi Nakra says, “I have never faced an issue with any residue on clothes with this one. The liquid dissolves easily in the washing machine and leaves zero residue on the clothes post wash.” It seems like both the issues related to dissolvability and residue are solved by Surf Excel Matic Liquid Front Load Detergent.
4. Care for Clothes - Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent 4.5/5
Washing machines are generally considered to be a little harsh on clothes, even on gentle wash. The impact of washing machine turbines can cause fibers in clothes to loosen over a period and hence the role of detergent becomes important to remove stains within the machine while still being gentle. A good detergent that dissolves fully also protects the fabric colour. Residual formation with powders leads to lifeless laundry.
By not leaving any streaks or powder deposits on clothes, liquid detergent doesn’t damage them.
Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent is considered by our mommy panelists as a gentle yet effective detergent that works efficiently on all kinds of clothes. They feel that it can treat the toughest stains on clothes without causing them to lose their colour or softness. According to user Dr Faiza Shafeeq, “It’s not really harsh on clothes. It treats the toughest stains still leaving the clothes soft and colour intact. There is no discoloration or white spots observed”
5. Value For Money - Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent 4/5
Most of us consider pricing to be one of the prime parameters for purchases. Therefore, we are usually inclined towards buying products that offer the best value for money.
Surf Excel Matic Front Load Liquid Detergent is a popular choice against the ‘value for money’ parameter. Though a little more expensive than powders, our mommy panelists felt that it lasts for a long period of time because the dosage used per wash is not much due to detergent efficacy. Also, since it takes care of their machine, clothes and removes tough stains in the machine itself, it ends up being worth the extra spend.
