Description: We can't recommend our laundry powder enough! It's simple, natural formula gets clothes noticeably clean without dulling colors or stressing fabric fibers. It works best with high efficiency machines that use less water. Oh, and it's made in Oregon City by a woman owned business.
Conventional laundry detergents usually contain filler ingredients (typically derived from petrochemicals) to maintain the consistency and appearance we're used to-think blue liquid. These synthetic ingredients are not always water soluble, causing build up/residue, especially in high-efficiency washing machines that use less water. This residue then gets on our clothes and can cause irritation to sensitive skin, wear down fabric fibers faster, pollute our waterways and cause harm to human health, marine life and the environment.
