Water (aqua), Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, sodium borate, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Citrus sinensis (Orange) peel oil, Citral, Limonene, Potassium sorbate, Sodium Benzoate*, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil

*Ingredient Notice: Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food, so why do we allow it in some of our cosmetics and cleaning products? Firstly, the amount of Sodium Benzoate used in cosmetics or cleaning products is much smaller than that used in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the Sodium Benzoate molecules are too large to be absorbed by your skin. This preservative has been allowed by ECOCERT, the Soil Association and BDIH; it has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. However, there are reports circulating online that warn against usage of Sodium Benzoate even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to fully informed and empowered. The choice is yours to make.

I love this so much
28/09/2020, By Leen
Good smell, clothes smelled nice; only "negative" was that it has no measuring utensil, so had to eyeball it
30/07/2020, By Ocean
Top stuff
08/06/2020, By M
Smells great and is very gentle but is better for hand washing smaller items that aren't very soiled.
28/05/2020, By Rock
Prefer this gel
28/05/2020, By Karen
This laundry gel does not clean quite as well as others I have tried, especially with cold water washes. A person also needs to use quite a lot, so it is not very economical.

Cleans well and leaves my clothes with a lovely scent. The required volume per wash is a little higher than I expected, meaning the bottle won’t last as long as planned.
28/04/2020, By Vicki
Smells nice but not convinced about its effectiveness
13/04/2020, By Claire
not bad, smells a bit strong immediately after the washing machine opens but it's very light when it dries. Happy to use a more eco friendly product. I would say it washes as good as any top of the range product (I used Ariel or Omo).

Washes lot

This is one of my favourite products. Smells amazing. Works wonderfully.
15/06/2019, By Hayley
Clothes come out smelling fresh and love that it uses natural ingredient
11/05/2019, By Jordana
I absolutely love this washing gel. I just wish it was a bit cheaper. It washes clothes well and smells so nice. It’s a great alternative to chemical ridden detergents.
06/05/2019, By Tania
This smells great and cleans well, but you sadly need to use quite a lot and it therefore, does not last that long
13/04/2019, By Janine
This is a really good laundry gel. It's affordable, cleans well and lasts quite a long time. And smells great too. Would definitely recommend this.
12/04/2019, By Anne
I liked it a lot, it works perfectly fine and makes my clothes clean. All I need in a washing gel.
24/03/2019, By Yvonne
Works well, just doesn't last long enough. Would recommend to others though.
25/01/2019, By Tamsin
I had to make the switch to pet-friendly products after accidently putting one of my cats in hospital after he fell into my normal liquid laundry detergent.
Commercial products obviously have a much more powerful smell and I usually only use them when washing a specific fluffy blanket that tends to stink like a wet dog when I use laundry powder.
The Nu-Eco gel leaves quite a pleasant scent on the blanket. Its very faint but infinitely better than wet dog!
It is also fairly economical so I will buy it again.
13/01/2019, By Yvonne
Works well and smells good
08/01/2019, By Laura
Lovely laundry gel. Love the gentle scent and cleans well. I follow it with vinegar as a fabric softener.
30/12/2018, By Alfie
This laundry gel makes my laundry smell good & fresh
27/09/2018, By Colleen
I like this brand and like the smell of the product but it did not clean my washing, even with the help of a stain remover
20/09/2018, By Cheanné
This detergent works really well. I was worried about the scent, which wasn't bad (a very nice citrus scent which my husband preferred to flowery and powdery scents) interfering with my deodorant or perfume and such but it fades and clothes smell fresh after they dry. It rinses out nicely and our clothing feels soft. Just wish it was a little more cost effective.
20/07/2018, By Tracey
I love this product. It would be perfect if it came in a pump dispenser (its easy to pour in too much) with a refill option.
04/06/2018, By Hanlie
I don't use any other laundry gel!
30/05/2018, By Roxy
Works really well and smells wonderful, I will purchase it again.
20/05/2018, By Carey
This is a really good detergent, I use it on my cloth nappies and cleans very effectively and my baby has never had any rash so it’s also super gentle.
14/05/2018, By Julie-Anne
Great laundry detergent. Using this product has helped my eczema immensely. No more itchy spots from clothing. Plus it's green and cleans laundry well so a winner all round!
14/05/2018, By Hanlie
Soft on laundry! Hard on dirt!
14/05/2018, By Hanlie
My number one go to laundry gel!
30/04/2018, By Tandy
In love with the smell and dissolves well, does not leave my clothes with white marks
20/04/2018, By Melani
Smells amazing and cleans well it is just a pity it doesn't last very long. But all in all a great product
19/03/2018, By Libby
I'm only not giving this product 5 stars because it's not quite as cost effective as other natural options (probably because it doesn't yet come in a big tub). That being said, it's still not badly priced and it really cleans effectively!! Stains are no match for it!
12/03/2018, By ashleybrownsa
Such a great product. Good smell and works like a bomb, I would recommend this product and the rest of the range to anyone wanting to eco-clean!
12/03/2018, By Louren
This is such an amazing product - it smells fantastic and doesn't give me an itchy nose and eyes like commercial products. It also makes me feel amazing, knowing I'm not damaging the environment or hurting animals by washing my clothes. My only concern would be the price versus how long the product is going to last me, but we'll see
19/02/2018, By Hanlie
Love this laundry gel!
19/02/2018, By Hanlie
I highly recommend this laundry gel!
19/02/2018, By Hanlie
Love this laundry gel!
14/01/2018, By Charlotte
There is nothing about this product I do not like. The smell is fresh and subtle, it is easy to use, you can actually use slightly less than indicated, and the pricing is spot on.
12/01/2018, By Jena
I am pleased with this product, it works well, is reasonably priced and it does not irritate my skin, certain products give me eczema on my hands.
11/11/2017, By Ilse
6 months ago I tried my first Nu-Eco Laundry Gel for all my washing, be it hand or machine and I must say that my family has fallen in love with it. It washes well and smells well, on top of that we have peace of mind because it is non toxic. I have since purchased again and again. No softeners needed not even for wool or delicate clothing.
25/10/2017, By M
This is a great South African product, I use about 50ml per wash and it does the job, and no softener needed. I like that it is a gel and does not mess all over the place. Also I think not bad value for money, would definitely use this again.
20/10/2017, By Hanlie
Love this laundry gel!
08/10/2017, By Tracey
Makes clothes smell "fresh" - I have just moved over to green household products and this sample impressed me immensely.
03/10/2017, By Bernadette
It smells nice. I do recommend buying the big bottle as 750ml doesn't go far. That said. I will buy this product again.
02/10/2017, By Hanlie
Love this laundry gel!
01/10/2017, By Zest
I enjoy the Nu-Eco air freshener, so was keen to try their laundry gel. I just love the fresh citrus scent, and it cleans clothes beautifully! Haven't tried it on stains though. I'll probably use the Fancy Pants Soap Nuts for machine washing laundry, and use this gel for hand washing. Lovely stuff! Will be trying other products by this brand in future.
27/09/2017, By Melissa
It is affordable, and it smells great. But personally I do prefer triple orange
11/09/2017, By Hanlie
The only laundry gel in my house!
01/08/2017, By Ilse
This is the second time I am buying this product and from now on I will keep on buying only this Laundry Gel. I really gives our laundry a sparkling "cleanliness" and on top of that a good smell. With this product I never use Softeners, what a pleasure to go to bed in these fresh sheets at night.
20/07/2017, By Jade
Lasts a long time as you only need a little bit per wash and washes the clothes very well. Better than the conventional washing powders. Highly recommended
14/06/2017, By Varsha
Great priced product that works well- clothes came out clean with nice fresh smell. will be using more from this range
08/06/2017, By Nadel
I love this. I use it for our regular clothes but also for my cloth nappies. I do find some stains I need to treat, but that I had to do with regular detergent too. Of all the natural detergents I have tried, I find this one to be the most effective and even more importantly, more economic.
03/06/2017, By Marina
I was curious about this product and was wondering how it is going to wash and clean. I was pleasantly surprised for it cleaned the clothes well and left a pleasant smell afterwards. Quality organic and eco products are the way to go, especially those which perform and deliver without the nasty toxins in them. I highly recommend this one.
02/06/2017, By Erika
I've been using this for over a year with my baby's bamboo nappies (together with coarse salt and bicarb) - what a great combination. Best, it adds a lovely fresh smell!
15/06/2016, By Nici
Before purchasing this product I inquired whether it will work with cold water only since we do not have hot water connected to our washing machine and I was told it is bound to work. I purchased two bottles, but so far it is not cleaning my clothes at all. I am already using double the recommended amount and it looks like I will have to push it up to triple the amount. My yoga clothes still smell of sweat after I wash it. Our pets blankets smell of wet dog. All our clothes smell as if it has not yet been washed. I have no idea what to do. Was I advised incorrectly and this only works if there is hot water?
16/03/2016, By Victoria
This product is fantastic! The smell is lovely and subtle. I was concerned buying this as my husband is an elite cyclists and his cycling clothing can often smell very bad. My main concern was that the liquid wouldn work on that kind of fabric and maybe would not even get the smell out. His cycling clothing smell wonderful now, this laundry works much better than your store bought Skip or Omo. I am very impressed and will continue to purchase it.
02/03/2016, By Tamryn
I received this as a sample with my last order (thank you FTN) and will be purchasing it with my next order! It cleans my laundry so well! The clothes came out feeling soft, uncreased and smelling so fresh. I washed in cold water too and it still cleans beautifully! Im super impressed with this product.
16/02/2016, By Angie
Wonderful but doesn go very far at all ... am I missing something? Im using less than the recommended and still seems to do a good job!!
23/11/2015, By Christine
The first SA product Ive come across for a washing machine that really does clean your laundry. Lovely fragrance too. Recommend. One issue: Does not specifically give best temperature, just says to follow garment label. Unsure if works in cold water.
13/11/2015, By Anthea
My skin is sensitive to chemicals and my daughter is the same, we both break out in a rash with most detergents however finding Nu-Eco has been brilliant. It cleans beautifully, is kind to the earth and is gentle on our skin. I will not use anything else! It also smells wonderful.
28/07/2015, By Anton
This is a fantastic product. Makes your washing smell great and cleans superbly in just 1 wash. Removes stains too!
