I’ve always used powdered laundry detergent, but when I go to the store, the shelves seem to suggest I’m in the minority: there is a vastly larger selection of liquid detergent.
So what are the plusses of using liquid, and what am I missing by using powder?
Are there any concrete advantages of one or the other, like saving money, or being better for the environment, or is the choice mostly just personal taste?
Any advocates want to speak up in favor of powder?
(My washer is a top loader, BTW.)
