Random washing powder question.
If somebody purchased some washing powder/detergent, for cheap, from a store, and when it was used it left a residue on clothing and did not perform well.

If that person then rang the manufacturer of the washing powder/detergent and it was established that the powder/detergent was made over 8 years ago, do you think the manufacturer is liable to replace it??

Random I know lol.

I think the store is liable to replace it if there was an expiry date on the box.

No expiry date on powder.

Store didnt list powder as being over 8 years old.

Just wash them again using a different detergent. What'd you pay for it $1.50? They'll just send some more shitty detergent as a replacement.

#sigh

Yep... definitely a store replacement. The product proved to be unsatisfactory for the purpose for which it was sold and/or represented by the retailer.

You used too much. Use less. Problem solved. Powdered detergent destroys your machine unless it's high efficiency, btw.

Yes and no, you have to use the proper amount.

Powder detergents tend to be better at removing stains but are harder on clothing. Liquid detergents require more to be equally effective and the larger amounts can be just as hard on clothes.

Replace it and write off the replacement. Customer good-will is more important than a couple of dollars.

Yeah. Just most people don't because they're stupid. If the powder turned to sludge rather than breaking down and washing away completely, it's not the detergents fault; it's your fault. Use less next time. If it happens again, use less again and again ect. until it doesn't happen. Or switch to liquid ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
