    A washing cleanser!

    The powder you use for washing clothes, what do you call it?

    Is it a washing cleanser?

    Re: A washing cleanser!

    I refer to it as 'washing powder' or 'detergent'.

    Re: A washing cleanser!

    Americans would say "laundry detergent."

    Whether it was liquid or powder,it's just detergent.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
