    What cleaning agents were used for washing clothes before invention of soap?

    We use soaps and detergent powders for washing clothes nowadays. As a matter of fact there is fierce competition between various brands of soap and detergents.

    It is said that soap was discovered long back but I am curious to know as to how clothes were cleaned before invention of soap as the history of mankind is bound to be older than the history of the soap.

    Also, while discussing about the washing soaps, we have touch the subject of bathing soaps also.

    As far as I know, soap is a very old invention. Soap (not in packaged form) was used even two thousand years ago. But detergent is a recent invention.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
