Specifically, I'd like to ask a question about the difference between "HE", "HE Turbo", and "HE Turbo clean", which have appeared successively over the years, and are very confusing in actual meaning.
(The Images are too big, see bottom.)
I'm looking for (a) the practical (wash performance) difference, and (b) the chemical/technical differences.
It seems like it's just marketing B.S., and I wouldn't be surprised if it was the idea of a corporate executive who wanted to "fix" some issue.
Is there anywhere on Stack Exchange where can I ask the question?
- Travel Stack Exchange site ("Non-biological laundry detergent available in the US?")
- Skeptics Stack Exchange ("Are some laundry detergents better than others?", "Are laundry detergent and fabric softener fumes dangerous to human health?")
- Parenting Stack Exchange site ("What is a good baby laundry detergent that is not tested on animals?")
- Everyday Chemistry Stack Exchange site ("Do dishwashing detergent and stain remover powder/stick have the similar ability to remove collar rings?", "Do various soaps work better when dissolved/used in different water temperatures?")
- User Experience Stack Exchange site ("Is duping the consumer really a good business practice?")
Personally, I think Skeptics & Everyday Chemistry are the two most plausible candidates, because both go into technical detail. The deceptive design practices mentioned in the User Experience Stack Exchange happen to confirm my intuition that it's at least partly a marketing issue (yay confirmation bias!).
Yes, I'm "overthinking" laundry detergent. I don't actually think that's a bad thing.
This became this:
