Laundry detergent manufacturers will continue to develop products that are sustainable and save consumers time, according to Brian Sansoni, vice president of communication and membership at the American Cleaning Institute. Recent innovations along these lines include laundry packets, in-wash boosters and detergents that can work in cold water, he said. "Energy costs aren't going down, so anywhere you can take advantage of product and equipment technology to help save cost, that's always a positive."
