I like that it is a toxic chemical free product.Does the job
06/04/2022, By Tan
Foams, cleans clothes and smells great
24/03/2022, By Adie
Smells great and works well. Defintely don’t need the recommended 250ml per load. I found that 50ml per load is enough to perfectly clean clothes.
17/11/2021, By Nadia
Love this laundry powder :) Been using it for a while now but less than what hey say and gets cloth clean and feeling so good on your because of no harsh chemicals. And the products smell combined with the sun???? dried smell is so good!
20/10/2021, By Chelle
I haven't tried this product as yet, but I've heard and read some great reviews about the product. This was my sole reason for giving it a try. I am sure that i will not be disappointed
23/09/2021, By Heellayah
So in love with this laundry powder:)

So in love with this laundry powder:)

It works well: helps prevent clothes and linen from setting off urticaria allergy.
09/08/2021, By Karle
I love this laundry powder. I use way less than the recommended amount. 150ml seems a bit much. I only use 30ml and my clothes are perfectly clean.
12/07/2021, By Daphne
I've bought this a few times. Works well.
20/06/2021, By Natasha
So happy I came across this product. I struggle with eczema & using this product has not affected my ezcema at all. No reaction or itch. Nothing
14/06/2021, By Milner
I have idiomatic urticaria resistant to most antihistamine products. Earthsap Machine & Handwash Laundry Powder has helped eliminate any incidence of itch from suspect bedclothes and apparel. The fact I keep repeating the purchase says it all.
11/06/2021, By Tricia
This washes everything so clean, even our cloth diapers
06/06/2021, By Theresa-Anne
Earthsap is one of the first natural products I started using. Nice to have a powder detergent in the natural cleaning ranges. I appreciate its pure natural ingredients. I love that they’ve extended the fragrance range! I use different ones for different items.
31/05/2021, By Jacqui
Long time user and happy with it. Can clot a bit in the input slot of the washing machine so need to keep an eye out.
26/05/2021, By Mikki
Kind and gentle on our clothes and on our allergic skin too.
25/05/2021, By Clauds
Works very well for our everyday laundry! Lovely, fresh smell. However I find the instructions necessitate a too large quantity of detergebt. I use a lot less than what is mentioned and it works just fine.
25/05/2021, By Liana
This is a great washing powder. It has a refreshing smell, but the smell doesn't linger on your clothes once dry (which is a good thing!). This really is an all-in-one powder; my clothes are soft enough, no softener needed.
23/05/2021, By Jeanine
I find using just a teaspoon is enough, if you over use it it seems to clog. I just use vinigar to to help unclog and that works well.
08/05/2021, By Christiana
A pricey product but that’s why I always come back to FTN to purchase larger quantities at a cheaper rate.
This washing powder is phenomenal and a no-brainer choice for me. Knowing that I and my family aren’t being exposed to even more toxins than what are already in our environment makes me sleep peacefully at night!
21/04/2021, By Heellayah
Haven't used it yet....but cheaper than the gel....
27/03/2021, By SuperEls
It left a white powdery residue on our clothes even if we mixed it with water beforehand. We used only a little bit of the tub and then stopped as it seemed useless.
18/03/2021, By birgit
In comparison to gel products such as Triple Orange - lasts as long, does the job and is much better priced.
15/03/2021, By Johannes
Does the job well. Cleans effectively, smells good and affordable enough compared to other well-known brands.
20/02/2021, By Vino
Have not tried the product. Waiting for my old powder to finish.
26/01/2021, By Reinette
This is a great washing powder. Just mix with water before you add it to your wash. I love it!
21/01/2021, By Irene
15/01/2021, By Natasha
I enjoy using this product and have used it for years. The plastic tubs are useful and I do up-cycle them but I would love to see a refill option - I have tested other products with a card box with compostable bag.
13/01/2021, By ALF
This is a great product: my washing smells wonderful with natural subtle fragrance & good to know no nasties going into the water systems.
16/12/2020, By Gail
I love the smell of this product, it cleans our laundry very well and it is earth-friendly. It dissolves better in cold water than the gel detergents.
16/12/2020, By Lisa
Easy to use
08/12/2020, By Louisa
We've been using this product for a while and continue to enjoy using it
07/12/2020, By Terry
This is my favourite laundry powder, it smells great and cleans well.
The bonus is that I can use the water for my plants.
27/11/2020, By Faatima
This product smells amazing! I find it isn't so great on really dirty washing , and you have to use a large volume of it per load.
25/11/2020, By Rox
Love this product and brand
14/11/2020, By Amy
31/10/2020, By Noeks
I have been using this lavender washing powder for over 2 years and love it! It cleans well, doesn't contain chemicals and smells wonderful.

I've switched to handwashing and this makes the ordeal so much easier, mixes well and no residue
05/09/2020, By Mabophelo
I love this product, I have used it once and it is absolutely amazing. I mixed it with water before putting it in the detergent dispenser like one mum said in the comments and it works like a bomb. I will be continuing with this detergent for a very long time.
02/09/2020, By Carolyn
Love this washing powder. Keeps my family healthy too....
29/07/2020, By Ocean
Clean laundry
29/07/2020, By Melvillemum
I’ve been using this for about three weeks. So far I have no complaints. Difficult to become poetic about laundry detergent. I mix it in with water before putting in the detergent dispenser, as others have recommended. Lovely smell. Will I buy again. Yes.
24/07/2020, By Coslyn
I started using this about a year back then tried triple orange. I’m back to this product and will be sure to remain a loyal customer, just wish it came in a 5kg container
24/07/2020, By Katey
I love my Earth Sap Laundry Powder! After I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I had to cut all chemicals out of my lifestyle and so I swopped from normal detergent to Earth Sap. It works just as well without all the toxic chemicals in it and even my partners skin allergy improved and disappeared after many years of suffering with an itchy rash on his arms. Will honestly never look back!
23/07/2020, By Natasha
I stopped using this product for a while. My allergies started acting up and I went back to Earthsap. The chemical free ingredients somehow made such a difference to my sleeping patterns and you get a solid clean.
08/06/2020, By Goodness
Washing is clean and fragrant
03/06/2020, By Melize
This is the best natural laundry powder I have tried. And for me this specific fragrance is the best of their range.
30/05/2020, By Johannes
Does the expected job really well: Good cleaning ability, even on moderately soiled items. And has a gentle and comfortable smell.
28/05/2020, By Carolyn
I love that we use non chemical based detergent on our clothes and this one is particularly good!
28/05/2020, By Rock
Super powder
26/05/2020, By Naledi
It works well, doesn't have a strong scent and lasts a while.
08/05/2020, By Real
Laundry with no thick chemical smell
04/04/2020, By Blue
Leaves the clothes feeling like they went through a thorough wash
01/04/2020, By Monique
Such a great product, I have sensitive skin and this has definitely helped me a lot.
31/03/2020, By Winner
Huge bucket makes it economical
27/03/2020, By Natascha
It smells delightful and is not harsh on my sensitive skin. Very happy with it!
09/03/2020, By LeAnn
Bought this before and I wasn't quite satisfied as the powder leaves a oily residue on clothing thought I might just have gotten a bad batch so I tried again and the same thing happened. It does clean the clothes but it comes out looking grey.....not buying again.
04/03/2020, By Suzie
This laundry powder works well and only a small quantity is needed. It seems expensive though I have not done the calculations to see how it compares with supermarket products but I just feel better knowing it is "green"
23/02/2020, By Anne
This works great and smells so pleasant. Would never buy regular washing powder again!
21/02/2020, By Eco
20/02/2020, By Andrew
Can be used for both day to day washing as well as baby's clothes instead of buying 2 different powders
14/02/2020, By Concerned

Price calibration
13/01/2020, By Chris
Powder does not dissolve properly was like sand residue left in the dispenser of my washing machine, fresh smell was non existent, in fact washing smelled awful, used old detergent to wash again and had much better result for a fraction of the cost. Faithful to Nature not interested in taking the product back..I offered to pay for the one measure I had used. ...would not recommend at all.
24/12/2019, By Mianca
This product smells really nice and definitely removes the stains or smells from the clothes. My family also really love it. Great powder!
18/12/2019, By Linden
Great stuff! And it lasts for months!
18/12/2019, By Zena
This is the second time I have bought this product because it worked brilliantly the first time!!
02/12/2019, By Natasha
i have used this product for a while now and I enjoy using it. I do re-purpose my plastic buckets but support the review which suggests a paper packaged refill if possible.
27/11/2019, By Nadia
Great product, cleans and smells wonderful, best is washing machine runoff can water the garden without killing the grass and plants. Only washing powder I buy and the plastic buckets I re-purpose for storing baked goods, toys, craft items or stationary.
25/11/2019, By Linnie
Great stuff! I've been using this stuff for years and I really like it. This will last me about 4 months doing about 5-6 loads of laundry a week. That was when I had a smaller washing machine (9 litre). But if you have a bigger machine then it will definitely last a longer time than that.
21/11/2019, By Lizette
It cleans well and leaves a very subtle clean smell. I do, however find that it sometimes leaves a white residue on dark fabrics. Overall, will continue to use it.
18/11/2019, By Keren
This was the first natural laundry powder I switched to and have experimented with other ones too. It has a lovely smell and is effective. I would definitely recommend moving to something like this if you have sensitive skin or eczema.
08/11/2019, By Lara
Like it more than I initially thought. Works better that normal powders
08/11/2019, By Karen
Fabulous product, wonderful service!
06/11/2019, By IK
Good product. Been using it for over a year. Very happy with Earthsap products overall
22/10/2019, By Kay
I reviewed this product over a year ago & have been using it since. It's great BUT i'm taking off a star because I believe there has to be a plastic-free alternative to the tubs they come in? It's a powder so should be easy to package in paper.
Paper refills would also surely reduce the costs - as it is pricey for the end consumer.
10/10/2019, By Tracy
A good product. I use a lot less quantity than indicated because otherwise this would be an extremely expensive product, and it still seems to do a good job. The lavender smell (which I don’t like) disappears once clothes are dry. I like the powder form of this product vs gels and liquids as there’s no mess.
09/10/2019, By Sam
Love it
02/10/2019, By Caitlin
Earthsap products are my favourite to use around the home. This laundry powder smells beautiful and gentle, and goes a long way. Love that it comes in a huge tub. I've bought several tubs now and tested against a few other brands, and this comes out tops for smell, effectiveness and value-for-money.
01/10/2019, By Michelle
This product cleans really well, and smells absolutely amazing! I do find that it sometimes gets clumpy in the detergent drawer (I have a front loader) so I end up having to pour more water into the drawer to get all the powder into the machine. Other than that it works really well, and it great for my grey water for my plants!
30/09/2019, By Rob
Great product, does the job well! Easy to use and gentle.
27/09/2019, By Lindsey
Totally LOVE this product! We've used it several years now. One tub lasts FOREVER! I bought in bulk and have been using a few tubs for over a year?? or more! Lasts so long and doesn't have too strong of a scent. I also use it for my baby's clothes and it has been good for him as well!
17/09/2019, By Joy
Cleans clothes well and not harsh on my hands
14/09/2019, By Robyn
Very happy with this purchase, gentle.
03/09/2019, By John
Like the powder as we have septic tank
19/08/2019, By Ann
The overpowering smell of ordinary washing powders has become unbearable. This is beautiful and gentle, cleans just fine and no toxic chemicals to breathe in all day. I find I do have to dissolve first in warm water.
06/08/2019, By Jackie
Smells nice and works well
27/07/2019, By Mianca
20/07/2019, By Liss
Good product. Only downside is it tends to leave powder marks on your dark clothes - but must powders do that.
01/07/2019, By Lynne G
Environment friendly and good cleaning powers. Have been using for a year or two and really keeps our clothes, linen etc clean and soft.
16/06/2019, By john
It is ideal for our septic tank, good for the environment and cheaper than Spar
12/06/2019, By Neo
tough on dirt and gentle on clothes and hands. takes some time to dissolve though but its the best. would buy it again.
03/06/2019, By Lynette
I love the smell of my laundry when using this product. The tub lasts for many washes because it is very concentrated.
03/06/2019, By Lyn
I've Been Using This Product For A While Now And Absolutely Love It. I Use Less Than The Recommended Amount And Still Get Great Results. There Is Also No Need To Use A Fabric Softener, Everything Comes Out Lovely And Soft. (I Do Use A Top Loading Machine - Not Sure If That Makes A Difference). Highly Recommended
16/05/2019, By Annerie
Great smell and it does remove stains. Really tough stains (i.e. toddler socks...) need some pre-treatment though
08/05/2019, By KJ
My family have been using this product for years, we all recycle our washing water into the garden and know that there are no environmentally harmful ingredients. I also have super sensitive skin and it would often get irritated by residue from other washing powders. No issues with this product. Highly recommend, works well and isn't harsh on clothing either.
27/04/2019, By Ilse
Great smell (fresh and not the typical chemical "laundry detergent" smell). I do feel like it leaves a bit of a white residue on darker clothes if you add a bit too much. Stick to the prescribed amount.
25/04/2019, By Cat
Gentle, fragrant and washes perfectly
08/04/2019, By Nadya
What can I say? It does the job it is meant to do whilst also aligning with our values.
08/04/2019, By Marsel
Amazing smell and cleans very well.
06/04/2019, By Zena
Recommended by a friend, who was right. It's an eco-friendly, user-friendly, pocket-friendly product.!!!
28/03/2019, By Pamela
Absolutely love the lavender smell. Clothes are looking and feeling good.
24/03/2019, By Cleo
Works well. The scent is subtle and there is no need for softener. I get around 18 loads from a tub.
24/03/2019, By Yvonne
Used this many times,seems to work well, will continue using in the future! Certainly smells better than some of the other earth friendly options.
11/03/2019, By Maureen
Great product
10/03/2019, By Hayleyl
Thought this was not gonna remove stains...but it did. Washing clean. Has no smell. As I don't use fabric softner. Clothes don't feel itchy, love this.
23/02/2019, By Bronwyn
Since I started using this powder I cannot use any other powder. the awesome smell, the cleanliness of the fabric to the feel on my skin.... I don't use the recommended amount - I use a lot less. Love it. 100% recommend!
18/02/2019, By Nicola
I've experimented with a bunch of different vegan washing powders and found that many on the market don't clean that well and they don't have a strong enough scent. I'm so happy I found this as it smells really great and cleans clothes well. I use about half of the recommended amount per load, so 1 tub lasts a long time.
06/02/2019, By Julie
Seems to clean extremely well. I use half the recommended dosage for my clothes and the product has still cleaned my clothes effectively. It also has a lovely scent.
04/02/2019, By Jo
I am trying to make the shift to all eco-friendly household products and decided to give this a try based on the reviews. I have only used it once so far, on a load of towels but was pleased with the results: they smelled good and were soft. I am not sure how it will work on heavily soiled laundry but will update my review if I am not happy. Definitely hoping I can continue buying it! I love the lavender scent!
01/02/2019, By Sadie
My sister got me started on eco-friendly cleaning products by recommending this washing powder. Been using it for machine & handwashing for about a year.

It cleans well and has a lovely lavender smell, but I also noted that it leaves white residue on dark clothes and then I require a second rinse, or I guess just go easy on the powder.

I have sensitive skin, and so far it hasn't caused any irritation from washed clothes (I don't use any softener).
Also happy that handwashing with the detergent doesn't cause burning and rash on my hands, as I used to get using Sunlight washing powder.
28/01/2019, By Nads
Absolutely love this product.
Gentle on skin and nature. Love that I can repurpose the containers for small items. Like baking/icing equipment, needlework items and so much more.
23/01/2019, By Pip
I love this product. No more allergic reaction to laundry soap. Smells great, cleans perfectly, economical to use. One problem is that it is hard to find. Pick and Pay no longer stocks it, fortunately the Hout Bay Spar does. But hard to come by in Tshwane, where my daughter lives and also uses the product. She had to pay R249 for it at a "health store". This is extortion. Wellness Warehouse, where it is also over-priced, was out of stock. We have resorted to ordering it online.
22/01/2019, By Khoska
I have been using this product for 2 years & am well pleased with it. I use far less than the recommended dose per wash (I have two kids under 10 so for really dirty clothes I add Londa Bio bleach to the wash or pre-soak with Mother Nature netted stick) so it lasts well. Our clothes are clean & last longer (white sports kit in particular!) than if I used more mainstream detergents. A few bonuses are no more skin irritation, I can use the grey water on my garden & no need for fabric softener (I live in Jhb so hard water is a fact of life).
11/01/2019, By FTN
Would like option to have glass container that can be refilled
11/01/2019, By Jackie
A pity about the plastic packaging but a great product. I prefer powder granules to the liquid laundry products.
05/01/2019, By Leatitia
I really love this product, but I don't understand why it comes in plastic packaging. It's why I don't buy it any more. If they change it to paper packaging (for instance, a box), I would certainly buy it again.
22/12/2018, By Unknown
Have been using this product for many years it.. don't need fabric softener:))
06/12/2018, By Squeeky Clean
Love the fragrance and works as well as any other washing powder.
04/12/2018, By Landé
Been using this product for quite a while - keep coming back to this as a washing powder after trying new products!
29/11/2018, By Diana
I have been using this laundry powder for over 2 years. It works really well and has a lovely, fresh fragrance. I would not use anything else.
18/11/2018, By Michelle
I loved this packaging and fragrance. Will purchase it again
16/11/2018, By Barbara
not sure if this cleans well enough for me
12/11/2018, By Jacqueline
Need to look at more earth-friendly packaging or be able to re-use the tubs.
11/11/2018, By Marsel
Smells amazing and clothes feels soft and fresh
01/11/2018, By MsJay
Doing laundry: Not the most pleasant of tasks, let's be honest. Luckily, Earthsap turns that laundry frown upside down each time with this powerful yet gentle product that takes care of business while taking good care of fabrics and skin. A win-win, if you ask me!
25/10/2018, By Gill
Great fragrance
23/10/2018, By Nerisee
We have been using this for years and it works really well. The powder cleans well and is gentle with fabrics. My skin is really happy and overall this is a fantastic product.
09/10/2018, By KJ
We've been using this washing powder for over a year and love that it's both good for the environment (we recycle our washing water into the garden) and it is gentle on my skin. Our laundry smells lovely too.
08/10/2018, By Elizna
Works perfectly, just expensive.
08/10/2018, By Dee
Fabulous washing powder with amazing smell, I use much less than indicated and still get great smelling super clean clothes
04/10/2018, By Bonnie
The best washing powder by far! The only one I ever use. No skin irratation and washed clothes really well with a lovely fresh fragrance. Will never use commercial washing powders again. This also lasts my family a while.(a hubby who wears new work clothes every day and two teenagers) I only buy this every three months
25/09/2018, By Caroline Hickson
I have a really sensitive skin. Using this product has drastically improved my skin and it smells great. It also makes me feel better knowing that I am not damaging the earth.
19/09/2018, By Bernise
I have tried a few but will stick with this one :)
14/09/2018, By Liezel
I have been re-ordering and using Earthsap's Laundry Powder for more than 6 months now - need I say more. Two of my family members with sensitive skins are also using it
16/08/2018, By Verena
Lovely product! Have used it a number of times before and it stays on top of my list. Washes clean and dissolves well
09/08/2018, By DeeH
I found this product gave the clothes a starchy feel. It cleaned them alright but unless used with a fabric softner I wouldn't use it again.
07/08/2018, By Tasha
A friend recommended this product to me years ago when I was breaking out in rashes, so I switched from the normal detergents full of chemicals to EarthSap ( as well as going more organic and natural) for my clothes and bedding. It made a quite a difference for my skin.
05/08/2018, By Emma
Smells great, cleans well and you don't need as much as they recommend so it lasts long.
03/08/2018, By Janine
This is the only washing powder I use! Have been using it for about 6 years and it has never let me down. You don't actually have to use as much as recommended I've found, but for really dirty clothes I tend to add the recommended dose. Your washing doesn't smell like chemicals like regular washing powder and it lasts longer.
27/07/2018, By Bonnie
Love this laundry powder! It leaves my clothes clean, fresh and smells so lovely!
22/07/2018, By Kay
Very good powder & good for sensitive skin.
17/07/2018, By KAREN
This is an excellent washing powder! I am on my second tub! Excellent for eczema prone skin! Smells wonderful, cleans very well...I use about 50ml for a normal load and it works great! A teaspoon of this is all you need to soak your don't need to add bleach, they come out SO white! I have used the Triple Orange which is also great, but I personally find the powder easier to use than the cream! The Earthsap fabric softener is also excellent!
13/07/2018, By Julia
Works well when using cloth diapers
09/07/2018, By Lorraine
This is the best cleaning product for laundry I have come across. Without the harsh chemicals of standard laundry powders, and gentle too. Love it!
05/07/2018, By Faye
I've been looking for a detergent for my 5 year old son who has eczema. It was so frustrating for my husband and I because we tried several washing powders, liquid detergents and using special creams on him but non ever worked. I'm deeply indebted to Faithful to nature, I found you on the internet whilst searching for new options. I'm very happy with my purchase. Earthsap really works wonders, it hasn't been a month yet, as soon as I received I started washing everything of his with it. I wish I could post pictures of his wrist areas were we've had scarring for more than a year now, the skin is softening up, getting back to normal. I was so touched when he said to me "mommy my hand is getting better"
Thank you Faithful to Nature & earthsap
28/06/2018, By Bavisha
At first, I was impressed with the washing powder and I love the smell. Still love the smell. But, it clogged up my machine even with cleaning out the soap compartment after each cycle. I guess it is fine when you use it to handwash clothes but certainly not great for machine wash.
26/06/2018, By Cat
Washes really well, smells great and is kind to your clothes
25/06/2018, By Meegan
We use this laundry powder on a daily basis. It goes a long way and works great. It's maybe not the best for heavily soiled/stained clothes, but ideal for regular daily use.
22/06/2018, By Ria
Amazing laundry powder
20/06/2018, By Joyce
Tried this for 3 months before reviewing. It cleans really well, even stained clothes (I've a toddler) and I like to be greeted with a pleasant scent every time I open a wash. The scent doesn't last and it doesn't irritate our skins.
10/06/2018, By Chris
We run a two room guest house in Montagu so in season use the washing machine almost every day. I use all the grey water in the garden and toilets. We all benefit as the laundry always come out clean and fresh, the garden (grass and flowers) all do well with the grey water and no problem with the toilets! I have recommended to friends.

We use this for our kids clothing and nappies. Works really well and you can use a bit less than what they say. If using for nappies and your machine doesn't have cold water, disolve powder in warm water first.
07/06/2018, By Tammi
We have used this product for many years. It is friendly to the skin. Gets clothes really nice and clean and is pleasant smelling. Another pro is that we harvest our wash machine water for flushing and this water remains good (without getting smelly) for many days!
25/05/2018, By Nads
I absolutely love this washing powder, being biodegradable which means I can water my garden with the washing water instead of wasting it down the drain and with sensitive skin, all the itching of commercial washing powders is not an issue headache anymore.
15/05/2018, By Jess
I've been using this laundry powder for almost 4 years now, and I am just as impressed now as I was in the beginning. It took a little trial and error to work out the best quantity to use (too much and you end up with powder streaked clothing), but I can't imagine want to try anything else after this. It is also very mild on the skin. I have eczema and this powder does not aggravate me at all.
I did use a different brand to begin with (Triple Orange), and while it smelled absolutely divine, I had to mix the gel with water before putting it in the washing machine drawer, otherwise it didn't pull through to the washing properly. The powder is just so much easier.

Such a great all round detergent. Use it for all the washing at home, even cloth diapers. Suitable for handwashing and machine. I do wish that it came in a larger quantity OR that we could get the tubs refilled.

Being allergic to Sulphur, commercially available washing powder makes me sneeze and causes my nose to stream (presumably because of the sulphates). It made me wonder what effect it was having through skin contact via clothes and linen.

This washing powder does not make me sneeze and gets my whites whiter than any other product I've used. It also makes my whole house smell delightful, but the clothes don't end up with a strong smell once dry. Half of the recommended dosage works brilliantly, which was a relief to discover because of the relatively high price!

excellent product. I have been using it for a while. I love the fragrance .

If you are having problems with it dissolving/ leaving white marks and are washing in cold water; first dissolve the powder in some warm water before adding. And yes you can use less than recommended. It lasts us a long time, washes well and I love that there's no chemicals or skin reactions.
24/03/2018, By Tammi
Earthsap laundryTammm powder is an excellent pr, works well and you need very little to get clothing clean. I would love if there was an alternate scent instead of lavender eg citrus. I also would like it if one could buy in bigger quantities eg a 5kg tub.
14/03/2018, By Claire
I love the smell and it definately does the job... I just add equal measures of Londo biowash to particularly soiled loads. It does, however, sometimes tend to not dissolve properly, and then leaves white marks on my clothes..but, I have found to combat that I use half the suggested amount (still cleans nicely) and slightly under fill the load so that there is more space for it to dissolve before coming in to contact with the washing. Seems to have combated the problem. All in all I like it... might try another powder at a later stage but for now I am happy and it really does have a lovely frangrance.
05/03/2018, By Liz
I received this as a sample in my last order. I was not particularly wowed by it. But its worth a try
02/03/2018, By Maj
Loved the smell, and cleaned the clothes well.
I only found it got finished really quickly.
24/02/2018, By Mo
I have no clue why I procrastinated over using this product. Unlike other laundry cleaners this one doesn't overfoam, it leaves clothes smelling amazing, and works well to clean clothes.
19/02/2018, By Nats
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
16/02/2018, By Monique
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.
07/02/2018, By chikhu
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...

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...
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.
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.
