Love,love,love this product, I do a lot of hand washing because we are off the grid and the grey water runs into the garden so I feel great about this as the water is eco friendly and my geese love to swim in it and I know it is not harming them at all

Smells lovely, makes my laundry smell lovely, cleans well enough, clothes feel soft enough without having to use a fabric softener, and i use about 2 - 2 1/2 tbs per load. I put it in the machines soap dispenser, do my washes on 30 degree C and no powder remains in the dispenser.

Perfect for eczema skins,it’s doing wonders for my son,no more itching from his clothes or bedding.
04/02/2018, By Robyn
We have tried so many washing powders and all seemed to negatively affect my daughter and husband’s eczema. Earthsap was the first one we found that didn’t and that also washed the clothes properly.
26/01/2018, By Catriona
Gentle, fragrant and most importantly it washes perfectly
25/01/2018, By Nadza00
Great scent, great value & most importantly - it cleans clothes beautifully !
10/01/2018, By Bronwen
One of the best laundry powders I have ever used. The smell is divine and it cleans really well. Will never use anything else.
03/01/2018, By Lindsey
My husband and I have been using this laundry detergent for several months-- one tub lasts SO long! We love the clean smell and that it doesn't irritate our skin! Definitely would recommend it to others!
20/12/2017, By Nikita
Cleans all our clothes well and I use less than the recommended amount on lightly soiled items. I will never go back to commercial products.
19/12/2017, By Chantelle
Great product . Effective cleaning and leaves clothes fresh and clean. A little goes a long way a tub lasts a month .

Great product, I think that this laundry powder is pretty good for sensitive skin.
27/11/2017, By Diane
Excellent product that smells great. It worked really well - especially on cloth nappies. Great for the garden and I like the packaging - a reusable tub rather than a plastic packet.
26/10/2017, By Anish
Clothes come out fresh and stain free, albeit, I have not tried it with clothes that were excessively soiled.
22/10/2017, By Leeanne
I love this laundry powder. It smells great and works so well. I use cloth nappies and wash them with Earthsap laundry powder and it works a treat!!
17/10/2017, By Tan
Very happy thus far, the fragrance is lovely but not too strong and it seems to clean as well as anything from the supermarket. I am keeping track of the number of washes that I get out of it to see how economical it is, but so far, the recommended amount of 150ml/load seems fine to clean a large load.
17/10/2017, By George
I am very happy with this product especially for my running gear and it is biodegradable. the garden is also happy...
17/10/2017, By Sarah
We love this product. Both my son and husband have bad eczema and it doesn't aggravate it at all.
16/10/2017, By Evanovitch
I just love this product. I use less than recommended and still have a great result. Because it's biodegradable, we can use the Water on the garden. I rated it 4out of 5 because it is a little on the pricey side. The client service is really great. Keep it up!
10/10/2017, By Yaz
My husband suffers quite badly from eczema so I've been replacing most products with organic. This is by far the best organic powder I've found.
07/10/2017, By Mari
I used this for when my toddler was a baby and will be using it for my twin babies as well as it is very good for sensitive skin and does not cause any irritation.
02/10/2017, By Carla
I loved the earthsap range, but the prices went up quite a lot since I first started using them
01/10/2017, By Lisa
I suffer from quite bad eczema so I need to be aware of what products are used around the home. Since using this Laundry Powder I have had very little problems with any breakouts. I am unbelievably grateful!
19/09/2017, By Hilary
I alternate the use of this product with my favourite Triple Orange laundry detergent and find it is a very good alternative. I normally put it straight onto the clothes in the front loader drum so that it dissolves better. The fragrance is lovely but subtle and it doesn't cause any itchiness or skin irritation as do some of the commercial brands. It is not the most economical product but I am willing to pay for the environmental friendliness thereof.
18/09/2017, By Candice
This powder works really well in my machine. I use a little less than the recommended amount and clothes still come out clean. The best part is when I hang up my laundry, my whole flat smells fresh and amazing. It also seems to have helped a little with my eczema. I'll never buy grocery-store powders again.
11/09/2017, By Meagan
I have been using Earthsap Washing Powder and Laundry liquid for years! I have sensitive skin and would itch and develop a rash all over my body from wearing my clothes that were washed with other brands of washing powder containing harsh chemicals. Earthsap is the only washing powder I can use without itching or getting breakouts. There is no other washing powder and laundry liquid I would use.
31/08/2017, By Sanet
I use 2 scoops (1 scoop = +- 15 ml) for normal loads, 2 and a half for heavily soiled, and 1 and a half for smaller loads. I have a front loader, and no, it doesn't dissolve in the tray. I just plonk it on the clothes directly in the drum. I haven't seen any streaks, and my clothes come out so fresh and clean, definitely cleaner than conventional washing powder (I used to use Sunlight + BioClassic). I will continue using this.
28/08/2017, By Esme
This product smells absolutely wonderful and seems to clean well enough. However, I have found that the powder sometimes does not dissolve properly, leaving white marks on newly laundered clothes. One major drawback is that this product is definitely not economical. Even though I use less than the recommend amount (125 ml per wash for a top loader), the 2 kg bucket has lasted me and my husband about five weeks (I wash two loads per week). This means that I'd have to buy new powder almost monthly...
18/08/2017, By Alison
I love this product. We run a guest house and do lots of laundry, personal laundry for guests and bedding and towels. It is fantastic as you use so little and it smells divine but best of all is it is so safe and effective.
16/08/2017, By Roxanne
Very happy with this product. Also great with the water restrictions, as I can add the water to the lawns without worry. It is pricey, and I'm in a house share so just trying to educate everything to wash responsibly and don't use too much!
27/07/2017, By Alweri
This is a lovely laundry powder, smells great and causes no skin irritations. Highly recommended.
14/07/2017, By Abigail
Very happy with this. Washes well, no skin allergies and lasts a long time.
14/07/2017, By Vicki
Very happy with the product. Been using it for over a year. With a toddler in the house you can imagine the type of washing that has to be done. Also knowing that it is good for us and the environment to is awesome!
11/07/2017, By Sanet
I've been using the Earthsap liquid soap for a while, but decided to try this out as a cheaper option. I used two scoops (about 50 ml) in my front loader, and my clothes seemed clean and fresh. It didn't clump in the tray, even with a cold wash.
08/07/2017, By Tammie
I really like this product. I make sure that the powder is dissolved then it works perfectly. I use far less than the recommended amount and it works well.
30/06/2017, By Caroline
simply put......I am very happy with this product.
19/06/2017, By Platjie
Have been using this for more than a year now and am extremely happy with the clean smell and no clogging of the machine. Will not use anything else again as it cleans well as well
05/06/2017, By Katja
Leaves my clothes smelling great!
02/06/2017, By Karen
It works well but be aware of powder clumping especially in winter with cold water. A 30 degree or warmer wash solves the problem.
You will notice a large amount of fabric dye washing out of your clothes the first few times you use it but it does not seem to affect the clothes. Just wash darks and lights separately.
Does have a fresh subtle scent and leaves clothes softer.
01/06/2017, By Christine
I am very happy with the results of this washing powder even when using cold water to do my washing. 90% of stains are removed, but the other 10% (hard to clean stains) needs to be washed a second time. It has a lovely fresh scent. After using this, I doubt I will ever go back to using unnatural products again.
30/05/2017, By Khoska
I have been well-satisfied with the Earth Sap laundry powder. I have tried some other brands of eco-friendly detergents but wasn't happy with the results till this one.
28/05/2017, By Liezen
Agv die vreeslike droogte wat ons tans in is het ek my wasmasjien laat uit spoel op die gras en earthsap se waspoeier spoel daar uit en dit maak dat die gras super groen groei. Was bekommerd dat dit sou dood gaan maar die besluit om organies te gaan bewys weereens hoe goed dit vir die aarde is. Dankie vir n fantastiese produk...

Really impressed with this laundry powder, works great on clothes and cloth nappies.

Love this Earth Sap product. Leaves your washing smelling lovely!
19/08/2016, By Christa
Excellento! Use less than the recommendation, clothes are super clean and smells good. And I like that its without all the bad stuff. I can also relay the water to my lawn.
11/07/2016, By Natasha
This washing powder smells really nice, but I wasn impressed that I had to use so much per wash. Doesn make it very economical.
29/04/2016, By Kelly
Fantastic smell. I use less than the recommended amount, and I find I need to do an extra rinse cycle as the clothes still feels a little soapy. Clothes really are cleaned, including hubbys oily work shirts and grass stained cricket kit. Very happy with this powder.
14/04/2016, By Catherine
This is a great product. I actually use less than the recommended amount and it still cleans our clothes and leaves them smelling great
06/04/2016, By Morgan
I love this product - cleans well and leaves items smelling fresh. One problem - if you use cold water wash only, the powder does not always dissolve properly and leaves white marks on black clothing items.
22/01/2016, By Karen
Not easy to find a washing powder that is eco AND works. Love this product. Does the job and my conscience is clear.
01/01/2016, By Nicolene
24/12/2015, By Barbara
This wash is definitely one of the best greenie powders Ive tried. What I like is that it can be used for machine and hand-washing - no need to have two different powders in the cupboard.
19/11/2015, By Salome
The best out of all the natural laundry products we have tried, and probably a little gentler than the (also great) Triple Orange Laundry gel.
11/11/2015, By Dawn
Love this product. Really makes my clothes smell nice. I use less than what the bottle actually recommends and my clothes smell just as awesome. Am sticking to this product.
12/09/2015, By Trevor
Works well and leaves laundry smelling really fresh. I find I have to do an extra rinse cycle as water is still foamy after the normal rinse, but I guess its not really an issue as the product is natural and does not irritate.
Your instructions on this website are wrong - its only 125 ml for lightly soiled both front and top loader.
04/09/2015, By Connie
Best washing powder ever, cleans better, no need for fabric softner and does not affect colors at all ... and off course the smell is heavenly!
26/08/2015, By Tracy
This laundry powder cleans the clothes really well and has a fresh scent. But after every wash (even though I dissolve the powder in hot water beforehand) my dark clothes still has white residue on which I have to soak off afterwards. Using less powder makes no difference.
20/08/2015, By Brenda
I had high hopes for this laundry detergent - it cleans well and is economical, but even after dissolving the powder carefully before putting in the clothing, each time some of my dark clothes had white streaks on them. Maybe its because I can only do cold washes with my machine, but I can keep doing extra rinses to get rid of the white residue on the clothes. Going to have to go back to Triple Orange laundry detergent - its messy but cleans well!
05/08/2015, By Ezilda
I switched to organic cleaning products about 2 months ago and haven looked back. Since using this laundry powder our laundry is cleaner and smells fantastic! And the best part, our skins aren sensitive or irritated anymore like it was from other laundry powders. I would recommend this product to everyone :)
17/07/2015, By Varsha
i feel that my clothes are cleaner and the scent stays fresh on the fabric. i dont have heavily stained clothes so can speak about stain removal. will def repurchase knowing that it is safe for the environment.
08/05/2015, By Nicola
I felt my clothes were clean but on darker items there were some marks/residue. Overall it smells nice and does does the job.
25/04/2015, By Alma
I am not impressed with the washing powder as it leaves a white residue, as not all of the powder dissolves even if I try to dissolve it in the water first. 250ml is also to much to per load. I would much rather prefer the liquid soap by Earthsap
18/04/2015, By Nici
I can stop raving about this stuff. Earthsap does it again. This product is great - it smells great, it cleans great, the price is great - its just great!
27/03/2015, By Anton
Excellent product! Washed clothes cleaner than a leading toxic detergent suppliers in ONE wash! Leaves clothes smelling fresh and clean and works so well together with the Earthsap fabric conditioner. Wasing machine is left fresh too.
10/02/2015, By Jessica
I was using the Triple Orange bio-detergent before, and this Earthsap powder is definitely easier to use since I had to mix the other one with water first (otherwise half of it remained in the drawer). I must say I prefer the orange smell of the other one, but this lavender smell is okay. The first load of washing I did came out still covered in powder residue, as I must have used too much. I had to put them all back in the machine for another rinse cycle. Im not the most mathematical person, and I had trouble figuring out how many spoonfuls of powder to use. A scoop would have been helpful, with instructions on how many scoops to use for a wash. Ive now figured out I need around 2 spoonfuls for a wash? It seems to get the clothes clean enough, without all that residue I had on the first wash. But I could be wrong and I only need one spoonful. Maybe Ill try that next...
10/12/2014, By Joanna
Very happy with this product! I use it for machine and hand washing and it works brilliantly for both. The smell is also lovely!
09/12/2014, By Livia
I absolutely love this washing powder. It has a great smell, washes well and I use half of the amount recommended on the bucket. Won use any other washing powder.
29/08/2014, By Sarah
Earthsap is the one laundry detergent that relieves my husbands sensitive itchy, skin. It also leaves the laundry smelling great. I just wish that it came in a bag to refill the bucket. That would be even more environmentally friendly amd then I would give it 5 stars..
14/08/2014, By Antony
The Earthsap laundry powder does not dissolve properly in the detergent tray of the washing machine and ends up clogging the water ways and the water now just runs onto the floor , not good .
21/03/2014, By Patti
I have tried MANY natural laundry detergents, and this is by far the best Ive used and I will not use anything else now. Its great value for money as it lasts a long time. I use half the recommended amount and clothes still come out clean with a wonderful light, natural scent. I have two very active little boys who play outside every day and get their clothes really dirty, and it works like a charm. The container is great to repurpose, especially for storing kids toys or making sand castles, etc. I love, love, love this product!
14/03/2014, By Anli
Wonderful washing powder, cleans well and smells very subtle. I also use the Earthsap fabric softener and am very happy with the combination.
21/01/2014, By Kate
This product not only cleans as well as the mainstream brands but I only use 3/4 the recommended dose! One tub lasts a month and we have a family of 4 plus dogs! It does not have a fragrance - that is my only complaint!
26/09/2013, By Misha
I LOVE THIS STUFF. I use a bit more than Im supposed to but I work in a hospital and want to make sure my scrubs are clean. I love the lavender smell. its worth the price. I like the bucket container as well because I repurpose them and use them for storage. now my sewing stuff smells of lavender as well!
23/08/2013, By Astrid
Ek lief die wasgoedseep, werk vir my baie goed. Glo nie ek sal eers ander probeer nie.
Stem saam met Ann, oor die refill bag.
12/12/2011, By Carla
Absolutely awesome product. I love the smell its value for money comparative to the price of normal washing powders if you consider its good for you!
26/11/2011, By Fiona
This is a fantatic laundry power! I love all the Earthsap laundry products!
10/11/2011, By Amanda
I love the smell of this product and it cleans well, but you have to use so much?
19/10/2011, By Nat
I second the review above - it really can compete with "normal" powders.
26/09/2011, By leisl
I agree with Lynda - a re-fill pack would be great! Also, the option to buy in a larger pack would also be appreciated.
28/08/2011, By Maritza
Though the powder smells wonderful, I found that it leaves a white film on my clothes.
24/08/2011, By Anonymous
The one I always order is the Earthsap laundry powder. It works really well, is economical and best of all we no longer suffer from rashes or eczema caused by chemical soap powders. It smells really nice too.
26/07/2011, By Jessica S
Love this product. A very good competitor to normal laudry detergents. Cleans beautifully, yet soft on your clothes.
13/07/2011, By Kelly
I truly love this product. The fragrance is wonderful and light. It's a very "clean" smell but it doesn't permeate your clothes like some convention powders do. I've been using this powder for 19 months and I still love it.
04/07/2011, By Lynda
An excellent product. As the container is quite substantial, a re-fill pack would be good
25/03/2011, By Nicole
I love this washing powder. It cleans beautifully and has a very pleasant lavender smell. N.B.: I only use a third of the recommended amount of powder per wash!
16/02/2011, By debi
lovely laundry powder. fabulous fragrance when you take your washing out of the machine.
03/02/2011, By Anna
This powder is fine for mine and my husbands clothes but not for my toddler and babies clothes (which get very dirty).
30/01/2011, By Ann
This is an excellent product my daughter nags me to get one for her too. It would be great if we could buy in a 2kg or more in a plastic bag as a refill for the bucket.
