More detergent doesn’t mean cleaner clothes. In fact, to get your clothes cleaner (and keep your washing machine in top condition) you should actually cut back on the amount of detergent you use. Extra suds can help bacteria, soils, and odors reach new parts of your machine and leave a residue behind that transfers to the next load. Additional detergent can also build up in your clothes and make them dingy looking.
