My husband works hard and comes home with an assortment of smells, smears and grease. I found myself using up to four products before trying this laundry powder. I used only this to give a full test and the clothes came out so fresh and so clean. I am even happier to give up fabric softener in favour of other natural alternatives. Even better still, it was fabulous for me to use since I have so many allergies. No itching, no hayfever before, during or after washing. And it lasted for a long time compared to what I was using and paying for before with store bought powders. It also didn't clog, cake or damage my machine which is yet another great find!
