Q: What is the difference between HE and regular (non-HE) detergent?
A: HE (high efficiency) detergent is designed specifically for HE washers, which use less water than regular washers. Since HE washers use less water to clean, the water is dirtier. HE detergents have special dirt capturing ingredients to help suspend dirt and dyes in the water, which helps keep them from re-depositing on your clean laundry. Our HE detergents are suitable for use in both standard top load washers and High Efficiency (front and top loading) washers. Tide HE versions have an HE label on the neck of the bottle.
