Can you wash clothes with shampoo in washing machine?
Note that shampoo shouldn’t be put into a washing machine because there’s a chance it will create lots of suds and cause bubbles to pour out of the washer. Wash your garments by hand in the sink or spot-treat stains with shampoo and water.
Can you wash your clothes with just water?
It is perfectly fine to wash clothes with just water, but the results won’t be as quick or as effective as washing with laundry detergents. Laundry detergents have been developed to be very good at working with the water to lift away stains and leave your clothes spotless.
What can I use if I don’t have laundry detergent?
Use Laundry Borax or Baking Soda
If you have no detergent at all, use one cup of borax or baking soda for a normal load. The clothing will be cleaner than you imagine thanks to the action of the cleaning agents, water, and the agitation from the washer.
