My husband and I debated about whether we should buy this or just attempt to make it ourselves. Knowing us, if we had decided to make it ourselves, it would have taken us too long, we'd need more of it because our apartment would just be horrible at that time, it wouldn't smell as good, and we would have made bad decisions in a panic. So we bought this and three days later, our bathroom was super clean and smelled nice. For once. But now it is time to do it again, which is okay, because I already have what I need!
I had been searching for a lower waste, plastic-free laundry detergent. I'm not sure if this is 100% plastic free given the picture of the bulk container, however, since it sounds like they re-use these that is good enough for me and far better than the plastic laundry jugs I had been buying. When researching other laundry powder options I saw a common complaint was white flecks left behind on clothes so I was a little worried about that. I am happy to report that this product did not have that problem for me - I washed black pants on cold delicate cycle in my HE washer and air dried with no residual powder spots in sight!
Overall, really happy with this detergent. I wish the fragrance stayed a little stronger post wash, but otherwise, it’s perfect.
I think we bought the lavender scent. It smells lovely going in the wash, but the scent isn't strong enough to be noticeable by the time the clothes come out of the dryer, which is my preference. We will definitely be using this again!
