Look for "HE" on the detergent or on the price tag.

Finding for front-load washing machines can be quite a challenge, as grocery stores and merchandise stores are slow to meet the demand for HE laundry detergents. When you can locate high efficiency detergent, the packaging can really be confusing.

Manufacturers started marketing liquid HE detergents in the larger plastic jugs similar to regular detergents. The problem was, many shoppers did not notice the HE symbol, and didn't know what it stood for. Hence, many shoppers bought this detergent for their regular top-loading washers and were miffed when it hardly produced any soap suds. The HE marked jugs were also difficult to detect amidst the array of various laundry detergents.

A new packaging has emerged for the HE detergent, a much smaller plastic bottle that is easier to spot and handle. It also contains less water, reducing the bulk while keeping the cleaning agent. However, these are concentrated formulas, and care must be taken to read and follow instructions since they may be two or three times (2x or 3x) the concentrated detergent formula.

HE detergent is a highly concentrated laundry detergent. Think of it as comparable to a specially formulated non-sudsing dishwasher detergent used in dishwasher machines instead of highly sudsy dishwasher liquid.
