If you frequently change your brand of laundry detergent does this clean your clothes any better?

Not really. Laundry detergents are almost identical between different brands, even though they wouldn't let you believe this! Detergents have molecules with one side that prefers water (hydrophilic), and another side that prefers oils and fats (hydrophobic). The hydrophilic side attaches to water molecules, and the hydrophobic side attaches to oil molecules. This action allows the oil droplets to break up into smaller droplets, surrounded by water. These smaller droplets are no longer stuck to the material to be cleaned, and are washed away. So in answer, only the density of the molecules in the detergent would 'clean' better, a comparison would be a stain remover to a conventional cleaner. hope this helps!
