** Good green choice. use 1/2 cap in prewash and a full cap and a half plus in main wash. Wash on hot and add a water softener if your water is at all hard. Some users report ammonia issues so choose an alternate product for nappies if possible.

Might be a reasonable option if multiplied as per plant based directions*. Try 2x and a hot main wash. Be sure to use full amount for heavily soiled load. Contains one surfactant and no enzymes. Eucalyptus fragrance also contains sodium percarbonate for stain removal.

A good detergent. The fabric softener in this product is bentonite based which is non-residual so won't build up. Variety of fragrances.

Happy with this product! Smelled like sunshine & lollipops when my bub wet the nappy -SU. Finding it is not the most effective product on breastmilk stains but works well on toddlers night nappies. -KM

We're not sure about this in the long term- very sudsy, highly fragranced, contains coconut soap. In the short term it worked well for us but we are not convinced that you wouldn't run into troubles after some time.

Worked well for us, but so heavily scented that you wouldn't know you had a smell problem until too late. -AW Too sudsy to get consistently good results with rainwater -JS. Too sudsy in soft water -KD Too sudsy and heavy fragrance hides smells -MG

A good choice.

Used 1/2 scoop in prewash and 2 scoops in main wash in my small front loader. Ran into problems when (unknown to me) the cycle I selected did a max temp of 40 degrees, once I corrected this to a 60 degree wash I had no further problems. Great scent free detergent. -SU

A basic non-enzyme detergent. Not recommended due to poor results.

Member feedback- large quantities were required to clean yet the results still weren't good. Very mild fragrance. Member changed to mainstream enzyme detergent with better results. -AW
