Laundry Detergent plays a very important role in keeping our laundry smelling fresh and clean , and though sometimes , admittedly I can be a little messy, I love fresh smells and lovely fragrant clothes. I hate it when sometimes your clothes comes back from being sunned still stinky or dirty or worse malodour from overnight drying outside. TOP Laundry Detergent has always been one of my favorite brands. Admittedly I change around a bit for flavors and different scents but TOP is one of my top favorites. I love the Blue (Blue Oceania) and Red (Fresh Tropicana) bottles best...
Anyway, TOP Laundry Detergent, developed by LION Corporation Japan, is the No. 1 Total Laundry Detergent brand in Malaysia and it's no wonder why . It champions the concept of hygienically clean living to encourage cleaner laundry, more comfort and a better sense of well-being.

According to Mr Naoyuki Egawa, Head Researcher (International Product Development), Fabric Care Research Laboratories, Lion Corporation Japan, hygienically clean is a concept that is well accepted in Japan due to its overall benefits.
Mr Egawa explained that the focus of hygienically clean laundry is on removing not only visible soils but also the invisible soils. The purpose is to prevent or minimize microbiological effects such as malodour or infection risks that may spread via soiled clothing or household linens.
“TOP is changing what detergents can do. TOP’s technology has unique cleaning agents that penetrate faster and deeper into fabric, surrounding soiled particles, breaking and removing them from the fabric surface and suspending them in the wash water where they are removed during the rinse and spin cycles.”
