Fabric conditioner and detergent each play an important role in making your clothes clean and fresh. But what does each one actually do? Can fabric conditioner clean clothes as well as freshen them? Here Lenor explains everything you need to know about fabric conditioner vs laundry detergent, and how they work together during a laundry cycle.

What Does Laundry Detergent Do?

Your clothes do a lot of dirty work. During an average day, they can pick up sweat, skin cells, food particles, dirt, hair, and more. Laundry detergent helps remove all this during a wash — so, just as shampoo cleans your hair, laundry detergent does the heavy lifting when it comes to cleaning your clothes in your washing machine. As well as removing everyday dirt and grime, detergent can also remove more stubborn stains such as mud, blood and make-up.

Is fabric conditioner the same as fabric softener?

You might be wondering what the difference is between fabric softener and fabric conditioner. The answer is nothing! They’re just two different names used for the same product.

What Does Fabric Conditioner Do?

Just as conditioner protects your hair, Lenor Fabric Conditioner helps protect your clothes.

While detergent gets your laundry nice and clean, Lenor strengthens the fabrics and helps reduce friction during the laundry process, which helps clothes keep their original shape, reduce colour fading, and reduce bobbling. As well as protecting your clothes it also helps them to feel wonderfully soft and, of course, smell beautiful. Used together, detergent and fabric conditioner will make your clothes clean, soft and fresh — and help them last for longer.

Do you know the ins and outs of fabric conditioner?

Whether it’s the joy of slipping between clean sheets or the comfort of pulling on your newly-washed favourite jumper, fresh laundry is one of life’s simplest pleasures. Fabric conditioner plays an important part in that just-washed feeling by helping to soften your clothes and make them smell wonderfully fresh. But it does a whole lot more than that, too.
