4) Dishwasher and Laundry Detergent
Unless you fully research it, you might think that most soap products have the same level of effectiveness because they contain many of the same chemicals. However, when it comes to detergents, top brands consistently work better than generics. Since you need to wash clothing and dishes regularly in order to reuse them, it is helpful to have detergent products that you know you can count on to do the job. Whereas generics may be watered down and not have ideal cleaning power, many major brands have proven to be of high quality. There may be some generic brands that work well enough, but because quality is not consistent among all generics, you may end up wasting money if you try to find the best among them. As such, it is often better to go with what you know works to keep your clothes clean and your dishes sparkling.
