I would think they would prefer cash tips but if you wanted to bring them some detergent as an extra bonus, give them the tablet form of laundry detergent much easier to pack. And bring them dryer sheets, not liquid for the same reason. I've also heard of people giving the staff international phone cards as a gift to call their loved one's back home.
