This washing powder from The Apothecary is truly “clean” in every sense of the word. It’s a simple, effective and toxin-free recipe, with no harsh chemicals or skin irritants. Soda ash, salt and sodium bicarbonate are all part of the green-minded homemaker’s arsenal. They get to work removing dirt, breaking down stains and deodorising dirty laundry. A dash of grapefruit and lavender oils ensure that your washing comes out smelling fantastic too. The Apothecary’s Spotless cleaning range is designed to do no harm, to your family’s health or to the planet. This skin-safe, ocean-friendly washing powder is no exception.

  • Gentle but effective laundry powder
  • Breaks down stains & dirt
  • No skin irritants
  • Suitable for families with sensitive, allergy-prone skins
  • Safe on coloured fabrics
  • No build-up in pipes or drains
  • Safe for the water system and the oceans

Here’s the nitty-gritty on how this grime-busting laundry powder gets to work:

  • Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) releases carbon dioxide bubbles, which help to lift out dirt and grime.
  • Soda ash (oxygen bleach) releases pure oxygen bubbles when it mixes with water. These bubbles break down dirt and get rid of germs. It also brightens white fabrics.
  • Sodium chloride (salt) is a natural cleansing and deodorising agent.
  • Bentonite clay helps to banish harmful bacteria.
  • Grapefruit oil cuts through grease and grime, and adds a fresh citrus scent to your laundry.
  • Lavender oil is a natural disinfectant, and will also leave your fabrics smelling wonderfully fresh.


  • Use ¼ to ½ cup per load. Also suitable for hand washing.


  • 1kg or 2kg


  • Sodium bicarbonate, soda ash fortified with oxygen, non-iodated sodium chloride, washing soda, bentonite clay, lavender & grapefruit essential oils

My clothes feel and smell refreshed

The laundry salts are really nice. Cleans the clothes well. I only use three 15ml scoops instead of the 1/4cup because of it's cleaning power. When first opened the package the smell was really strong and I wasn't a fan, but it has dissipated and it is all good now! I would purchase it again.

Top stuff

A really great product, have been trying out a few to see which works best for us as a family. Found you do need to use a bit of fabric softener or my clothing tends to be a bit static.
08/11/2019, By Lara
I’m adding this to all my washing cycles. I love the smell and actually helps with stain removing
09/10/2019, By Taryn
Although pretty expensive, I love that these ingredients are all natural and good for the earth. My laundry is clean, smells wonderful and the packaging contains no plastic. Winner!
19/09/2019, By Bev
Laundry is left smelling fresh, clean and soft. Have cut down on the amount of fabric softener used. Amazing natural product and not more skin irritations. Should have made the switch much sooner.

Fresh and clean!
05/09/2019, By Ju
fantastic product, no nasty chemicals, environmentally friendly and great for my hypo allergic skin. Leaves my washing fresh with no need to nasty stay soft, no oily residue in my machine or on my clothes like other natural washing products

This powder works very well, the fragrance is not overpowering and the packaging is much more on brand than the plastic buckets which most of the others come in.

Best eco version I have found. Great on dirtier stuff and my skin is loving it.
16/07/2019, By Ally
The smell is great and it really does what it says it does. I am so happy to have found this healthier option.

Would really reccomend this detergent. I worked out how much it costs per gram, compared to all the others available on FTN, and believe it or not, the 3kg is the cheapest! I mixed it with some dishwasher salt to prolong use. Works super well. I use about half a cup.
29/04/2019, By Julia
I love this product, my cloths are cleaner and brighter ! It is fantastic with my allergies and hasnt bothered me at all
18/02/2019, By Melissa
This product smells great however it doesn't clean as effectively as normal washing powder.
09/02/2019, By Courtney
I used to use soap nuts and this is a lot more convenient. Kind on my extremely sensitive skin, and eco packaging too
06/01/2019, By Anel
I will have to try a different product, it doesn't work very well to clean the clothes unless I use a huge amount and then it works out to be too expensive
13/12/2018, By Natasha
Great product...washes well, clothes are soft, clean, and nice-smelling
12/12/2018, By Didi
Great product.
22/11/2018, By Anel
Difficult packaging to handle, but seems to clean the clothes well. Did use a lot though. Nice to know it is not harmfull
18/11/2018, By Lisa
I love this brand.
18/11/2018, By Michelle
I love this shower gel! The fragrance is not overwhelming and it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean
16/10/2018, By Su
The most effective of the laundry detergents I have tried that doesn't irritate my toddlers' or my sensitive skin. Also love the thoughtful packaging - compostable plastic and paper.
08/10/2018, By Nikki
I absolutely love the smell of this product - the grapefruit has such a clean, citrus scent. I have been using laundry liquid for a while so I was worried that the granules would get stuck in the tray or not properly dissolve on the clothing, but they dissolve perfectly leaving clean, fresh-smelling laundry.
27/09/2018, By Jenni
Laundry is so clean and fresh
18/09/2018, By Wilma
These laundry salts work surprisingly well, leaving washing clean and even removing stains. Dissolves well and a packet lasts very long. I needn't use any vinegar or other softener to it.
23/07/2018, By Garni
Clothes are clean and SO soft, plus colours bright. Quarter cup was plenty for a load. The powder smells lovely but the scent doesn't hang onto the laundry after they're washed, they just smell clean. Definitely no softener required! I pair this with the apothecary oxygen bleach for whites and stains - great.
22/06/2018, By Olga
Have used it a couple of times and it does a good job
17/05/2018, By Maria
I'm on my second 3kg bag of these salts, and I love them! I use them together with a natural bleach and fabric softener, and am very happy with how clean the clothes come out. A downside is the smell, which is unlike lavender or grapefruit, and not very pleasant, but if using a scented fabric softener this really doesn't matter!
28/04/2018, By Kate
I have only used this product a few times as I only recently purchased it, but the few times that I have used it my clothes have come out clean and fresh. Paired with Londo Bio Bleach (used as a stain remover for dirty food-stained toddler clothes), I am very happy with how our clothes come out. What a bonus that is environmentally-friendly and that no ugly, nasty chemical residues are left on my skin!
05/04/2018, By Tandy
Unfortunately natural washing products will never clean as well as the chemical products but this product smells great and works well for a natural product
04/04/2018, By Bron
Washes well and smell good. Would be great if it came in a tub.
15/03/2018, By Barbara
This is an amazing washing powder. Even my washing machine is cleaner after using. I also found that you don't even need to use as much as the instructions say - I use about half the recommended dosage and it works fine.
24/01/2018, By Elisabeth B
Softly scented cleaning wiz! From the dirties dirt to the gentles fabric this washing powder is amazing. Very economical and great for the grey water :)
08/12/2017, By Sindisiwe
It cleans laundry! I use 4-5 tablespoons per load which works just fine. A 3kg bag has lasted two of m us months so far and we’re only halfway through. The clothes don’t hold the nice smell, which would be nice but isn’t a problem.
21/10/2017, By Leeanne
This is a good product, my laundry comes out looking much cleaner than it ever did using the normal, chemical laden brands. The only downside is that you don't really smell the lavender or grapefruit at all, but nonetheless, I like this and will probably buy it again.
18/10/2017, By Devash
Not great value for money. Wish I saw the directions of use before buying - 1/2 cup for one wash and I got a 1kg bag...
25/07/2017, By Jianine
Nice that it's an environmentally friendly product, as we use the washing machine water for the plants in our garden. Lovely fragrance, although we could not smell anything after our clothes had been washed.
23/06/2017, By Wilma
This really works well for me. Washing comes out clean, and the salts dissolves well in the water. Will really buy this again. It has a fresh smell.
15/06/2017, By Kirsten
Works well and I don't need to use a softener afterwards.

This is really an awesome product.

I am very impressed with this laundry powder. I have two small children who are VERY hard on their clothes and I have been very happy with how clean they get with this. The scent is pleasant and not overpowering. And so nice and natural.

I love this washing powder and its beautiful scent.
