A highly concentrated detergent that really goes to work on tough stains. Like our liquid laundry detergent, our powdered laundry detergent contains no perfumes, dyes, enzymes or optical brighteners. This low-sudsing formula is ideal for use in front loading washers.
This detergent did hardly anything to clean my daughter's diapers! We were using bumGenius detergent and just one box of that lasted us 6 months- even with running 2 cycles per wash! When we finally ran out, everywhere we looked was no longer selling bumGenius. For some reason, it wasn't even listed anymore on CottonBabies. So after reading reviews I decided to give this a try. I must say, this product is horrible! Instead of taking 2 small loads to clean diapers, it takes 3 or 4 supers! The scoop size is also bigger than bumGenius, so you end up using a lot more. The box says "20 loads" whereas bumGenius is 66. That's a big difference for roughly the same price! The box I bought a month ago was gone in 3 weeks. The hypoallergenic liquid soap we buy at Dollar General works better than this stuff does. Also, despite how much I rinsed the diapers after they were finally clean, there was an awful residue that just would not come out. Lastly, this isn't really a complaint about the detergent, but when I made this order, Cotton Babies didn't charge me until the next week when they finally shipped my order. We are very poor living paycheck to paycheck. When we bought this detergent we were very low on funds and the fact that they didn't take out the money right away screwed us over when it was time for us to get gas and we thought we had more money than we actually did. I will no longer be buying from this website. Their customer service is lacking and they randomly take good products off their page and sell other poor-quality products that don't compare. Don't waste your money!
Love the planet laundry soap though I like the liquid better, but cotton babies sometimes does not carry it. I am hoping the powder is just as good. with the liquid I have not experience a smell problem and I have been using it since we started cloth last summer. We have started to use it with all our clothes.
I recently switched to planet from tide free powder, not just for my CDs but for regular laundry. On first purchase I was skeptical because of some reviews. But I love the fresh smell! And it's cheaper than tide - you also can't beat the free cotton babies shipping! I really like this stuff. Maybe the ones who had a funky odor had a water contradiction. We have well water. No issues with smell but I do hang dry my CDs and most of our clothing. I do recommend this detergent, at a great price!
I love love LOVE this detergent for my diapers. I tired several other big name cloth detergents, and I'm back to Planet. This stuff WORKS. I'm so happy that CottonBabies carries it, and for such an awesome price! I was paying nearly $10 for a box at my local co-op (they since stopped carrying it) so this is so awesome to find it here.
I also think this detergent made my diapers smell. :( They have a weird, musty like smell when they come out of the dryer, even after multiple rinses. This detergent is great at getting out stains though. otherwise, I am not too impressed. I've gone back to arm&hammer sensitive.
