Looking for a Laundry Detergent for Bacteria Removal?

Using a laundry detergent with strong antibacterial properties such as Biozet Attack PLUS Eliminator can remove harmful germs and bacteria from your dirty laundry. However, a detergent alone isn’t enough to completely eliminate germs and bacteria. To achieve an effective result, you need to either combine your detergent with a strong and safe disinfectant solution or sanitise your clothes separately. While cleaning reduces the number of germs and bacteria on your clothes, sanitising removes those germs, so both processes are equally essential to provide hygienic clean results.

How to optimise your laundry detergent to eliminate germs and bacteria

  • Choose the right temperature for your clothes

    Unfortunately, bacteria survive well in cold water, so if you’re trying to disinfect your clothes from harmful germs, hot water is your best aid. Heat is one of the most effective ways to eliminate germs. The ideal temperatures to eliminate germs and bacteria should fall around 60 degrees, and you can even go up to 90 degrees for more effective results.
  • Use hot water for extremely dirty items 

    Even though hot washes provide better results than lower temperatures, they aren’t suitable for all types of fabrics. You should only use high temperatures to wash heavily soiled items such as bed sheets, dirty work clothes, towels, or anything that’s likely to contain a large number of germs and bacteria. Hot water and powder detergents are a great pairing – you can boost the effectiveness of a hot wash by using a high performing powder detergent from Biozet Attack’s range of washing powders.
  • Rely on a  detergent best suited for an efficient cold wash 

    Some people may prefer cold water to wash their laundry as it can prove to be more energy-efficient. If that’s the case, you can still make the most out of your laundry routine by using a stronger detergent or adding an antibacterial solution to your wash. You can also practise the following steps for items that can’t handle bleach or high temperatures:

    1. Soak your clothes in cold water with a non-bleach detergent before putting them in the washing machine.
    2. Add a sanitising solution to the wash and wash them at 30-40 degrees celsius.

    If you’re looking for an effective detergent solution that works well with cold water, you can browse Biozet Attack’s range of liquid solutions and choose a liquid detergent that suits your needs.

Can you use regular laundry detergent to clean your washing machine?

Your washing machine could harbour leftover detergent, hard water deposits, or mould around the lid, making it the perfect breeding ground for germs and bacteria. These possibilities highlight the importance of sanitising your washing machine regularly. You can run a maintenance clean with your regular laundry detergent, but it may be more ideal to use stronger solutions such as bleach, white vinegar and baking soda, or a specially designed washing machine cleaner.

The ultimate solution to removing bacteria on your clothes

Ultimately, you can’t rely on one method to eliminate bacteria from your clothes. It takes a strong cleaning cycle, a thorough sanitising process, and consistent washing machine maintenance to keep the bacteria at bay. Additionally, it’s also helpful to have the right laundry supplies to take care of different fabric materials appropriately. Browse Biozet Attack’s range of detergents and find a washing solution that suits your needs. Make your clothes feel brand new after every wash!
