There are many options for laundry detergent – powder, liquid, eco friendly, sensitive, etc. Most of us just opt for the cheapest, but clearly there is more to the decision. We want to use a detergent that treats our clothing well leaving them soft, clean, and smelling fresh. We narrowed down our favourite powder detergent brands to help you make the best decision for your next cycle.
- Ecostore – Recently picking up the number one spot on the Canstar Blue ‘Most Satisfied Customers’ list for laundry powder, Ecostore prides itself on chemical free products. Their detergent is made from plants and minerals with natural light scents. After washing, your clothing will feel gentle on your body – it’s a great option if you have sensitive skin. And as you may have guessed, they are cruelty free, GE free, & greywater and septic safe.
- Earthwise – Competing with Ecostore, Earthwise is another chemical free product without any nasties. We like them both equally, but end up using Earthwise more because it tends to be less expensive. The range of scents are slightly better than Ecostore too. Both formulas are great because they are concentrated making the box last longer – only a small amount is required to do the trick!
- Persil – Sometimes the natural soft stuff just doesn’t cut it and you need to get out some dirt on your whites – this is when we find Persil detergents the most useful. Persil actually gets out the tough stains, and makes clothing look brand new. It’s a good one to have if you have kids!
