How do I know if I’m using too much detergent?

1.There are suds leftover when the load is done.
2. Your laundry feels sticky when wet.
3. You find detergent residue on your laundry.
4. Your whites look dingy and your colors look less vibrant.
5. You’re not measuring for each and every load

As a general rule of thumb, you should only use about a tablespoon of laundry detergent per regular load size.
