Up & Up Fresh Breeze detergent is carried exclusively at Target stores. It comes in liquid form and is popular for its scent. Up & Up costs about $0.13 per load.

HE Fact:

Here's another reason to use only HE detergent in your HE washer: Since the washer doesn't use as much water, regular soap may not properly rinse from your clothing, which may not seem like a big deal until you get caught in the rain and you have soap bubbles on your clothes.
