The Laundry Pod Mistake That's Leaving Streaks On Your Clothes
Laundry pods can sometimes leave streaks or residue of detergent on your clothing. To avoid this, add them to the machine before placing the clothes inside.
Single-dose laundry pods are water-soluble and must dissolve entirely to avoid leaving any unwanted spots or stains on your clothes.
Tossing a laundry pod in the drum first is essential to ensure the proper dissolution of the pod so it can receive sufficient water to break down completely.
If you place the pod in after the clothes, it tends to be closer to the door where no water is dispensed. This means you are relying on the machine to reposition the pod correctly.
