I just love the Tropical Traditions! You may remember that I recently reviewed their coconut oil! Since that review, the folks at Tropical Traditions has sent me a 80 oz (5 lb.) tub of their powdered laundry detergent for review. This is what I received:
I have to admit, it was sitting on the back burner for a few weeks, as our washing machine broke, but once I had the chance to use it, I was in love! I use this detergent on all my clothes (not cloth diapers though, as I am not sure it is cloth diaper safe, and I am not willing to risk damaging my lovely fluff)!
*the following info taken from the Tropical Traditions website:
Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent cleans and removes stains from your laundry with the power of Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer. Powdered Laundry Detergent is safe and effective at ALL temperatures on whites, permanent press, bright colors, pastels, prints, and delicates in hard or soft water. (Not suitable for Silk or Wool) Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent is non-toxic, environmentally safe and contains no phosphates. Powdered Laundry Detergent cleans and safely bleaches your clothes with the added power of Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer.
With our Laundry Detergent there are no harmful by-products upon decomposition. Powdered Laundry Detergent dissolves as completely as liquid detergents and rinses away completely leaving no residue in your clothes.
Powdered Laundry Detergent costs less to use than commercial liquid detergents and costs no more to use than commercial powdered household laundry detergents. Powdered Laundry Detergent contains no dyes, perfumes, fillers or phosphates. Compare our Laundry Detergent to your normal laundry detergent and you’ll see the difference!
Powdered Laundry Detergent can be used with Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer to provide optimum cleaning and stain removal!
General Use Directions:
Begin filling washer with water, add Powdered Laundry Detergent, then add laundry.
For regular size washers and normally soiled loads use 1/4 cup (2 oz) of detergent.
For large size washers add 1/2 cup (4 oz) of detergent.
For heavily soiled loads add 1/2 cup (4 oz) of detergent and 1/4 to 1/2 cup (2-4 oz) of Oxygen Bleach
For extra cleaning and stain removal power use Oxygen Bleach as a pre-soak or add 2-4 ounces of Oxygen Bleach to 1/4 cup of our Laundry Detergent per load!!
