What is a "Mild Detergent"

I no longer have a Mum to ask so I thought I would try you lot as sort of super subs.

I use a machine to breathe at night and it is recommended that the tubing be cleaned using "mild detergent" but I've absolutely no idea what that might mean, what product would qualify and I hoped the mums here might be able to help.

Clearly I don't need a perfumed product and I don't need stain removal qualities. I imagine all I need is a plain, mild detergent, whatever that might be. If anyone can help with a readily available product name I'd be really grateful. Thank you for reading. flowers

Washing up liquid, watered down.

We use hot soapy water (washing up liquid or handwash, not with added moisturiser) to wash CPAP tubing here. Or else just soak it in Milton solution.

yes, washing up liquid or handsoap (not the creamy kind)

Grateful for the info re washing up liquid. Hadn't thought that qualified. Didn't know it was a detergent.

Soap based products are, however, deprecated because, apparently, they leave a fatty, greasy deposit/film?

Many thanks to all who have responded. flowers flowers

Washing up liquid gets rid of grease grime and fat like the do when you wash up a glass in soapy water. There is no residual if rinsed.
