Compacted detergents that come in single-dose capsules, contain higher level of concentration fail to impress when it comes to getting clothes clean, according to Consumer Reports

LOS ANGELES , November 7, 2011 () – Consumer Reports’ latest tests of laundry detergents found that compacted detergents that contain higher level of concentration and that come in single-dose capsules don’t work as well as regular detergents, Consumer Reports reported Nov. 4.

For example, Dropps 6X Concentrated detergent’s single-dose dissolvable capsules got clothes only fairly clean, according to Consumer Reports. The detergent fared well when it came to removing grass stains, but it failed to remove blood.

Procter & Gamble Co.’s Tide HE Plus Bleach Alternative is a better bang for your buck, according to Consumer Reports. It was the agency’s top-rated high-efficiency detergent, and there wasn’t much of a difference in price when compared with Dropps.

Tide has plans to release Tide Pods next spring, its own single-dose detergent formula, according to the publication.
