    Washing Powder

    Hi!

    Could you tell me which words in the following native speakers use most? I find them via search engine.

    - Washing powder
    - Washing detergent
    - Washing soap powder


    I mean a powder which is used to wash clothes.

    Thank you!

    Re: Washing Powder

    I use "washing powder" (the term, not the product).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
