Possible allergens: Coconut

Note from Manufacturer: Caustic Soda makes up 0.01% of the total mix, this forms part of the Lye solution that is required to make soap. In the formula the Caustic also allows us to maintain a constant Ph. Technically, because there is such a miniscule amount of Caustic, we are not required to include it on the label, yet we have chosen to include it when we could have simply stated ‘Lye Solution’ as an ingredient.

you only need a small amount per wash. does need a softener though
16/10/2017, By Venecia
Love this product, washing smells great, no sta-soft needed and it's good for the planet. I ordered 1kg and my next order was the up size of 5kg.
15/10/2017, By Nadene
I have used this for about two months now and I am so happy with the product! It cleans well, there is no residue and I like that you don't need to use a lot with each load. In addition, I used to itch intensely - and I had not associated it with the laundry products I was using. I realized recently that after starting with Triple Orange I haven't been itching at all - what a relief! I love that it is environmentally friendly, effective and good for my body too: Triple Win!

After reading some of the other comments, I am definitely going to be using Triple Orange for general house cleaning too...

I am still trying out a few laundry soaps. This works well and I especially love the smell.
13/10/2017, By Lilisa
Works very well. It says it lasts for 40 washes, but mine lasted 4 months and I wash at least 3 loads a week, which is closer to 50 loads. It smells amazing and you save money because you don't have to add detergent.
09/10/2017, By Cheeki
Great fragrance
07/10/2017, By Cremilde
Clean fragrance and good for the garden too. Just have to adjust amount used for size of loads
03/10/2017, By Presha
only have to use a small amount which is economical. it doesnt double as a softener however so you need to use a softener with it.
30/09/2017, By Fiona
Works well and smells great too!
27/09/2017, By Amber
I love this washing liquid. Smells great and my clothes are nice and clean. Stained clothes should be scrubbed separately, but otherwise a fantastic product
23/09/2017, By Rhett
its good, but 1 spoon not enough for a 5 kg wash load, and does not remove stains...but perfect for washing not very dirty clothes and bedding!
19/09/2017, By Hilary
This is a wonderful product with a lovely fragrance and it really cleans my post-gardening grubby clothes. I normally put a scoop straight onto my laundry in the drum rather than into the soap dispenser, as the thick, creamy consistency means it doesn't always dissolve properly in the dispenser. Use sparingly and it will last really well.
11/09/2017, By Claire
great!! very sensitive skin and don't react to this product
31/08/2017, By Curious Buyer
Way too expensive for such little balls
31/08/2017, By Cherona
Smells so good I almost want to eat it :-D I'm happy with this detergent! 5 stars for what's in the container, but 4 stars because I'd rather buy it 'on tap' instead of buying more plastic.
29/08/2017, By Karen
I like the Orangy smell and it cleans clothes efficiently, even kiddy dirt!
12/08/2017, By Monique
I'm happy with it. I use it with bio-londa or apothecary bleach powder and it washes my laundry reasonably clean. If i have stains that don't get washed out, i spray on some pure simple stain treater just before i chuck it in the wash and voila. I'm just not a fan of the strong citrus scent, but that's probably just me.
11/08/2017, By Bella
It works! Lovely smell is an added bonus.
01/08/2017, By Linda
Even using this for personal underwear only is a great reason to keep buying. The smell is divine and lingers throughout the house for a while.
25/07/2017, By Jeanne J
Cleans well and leaves a lovely fresh citrus scent.Very happy with this product.
25/07/2017, By Boskind
Have been using this product for couple of years now. Brilliant! Liquid rather than powder safer for skin. Does not give me sinus problems as many other detergent which is too fragrant. Also works wonders now with water shortage -- I can re-use washing machine water without fear of scary chemicals!
24/07/2017, By Susan12
Great product. Removes stains whether you are using cold or hot water. I use it to clean my mama cloth and it works excellent. Smells great too. Best of all no skins for me or my family!
19/07/2017, By Christine
Excellent product, works well as a stain remover straight on a stained garment before putting it in the washing machine. Very affordable in 5KG also saves on fabric softener and smells great
16/07/2017, By Kerry
Works really well! I also find if you buy the bulk one, it works out cheaper than normal detergents as you only need to use a tablespoon per wash so it lasts months.
06/07/2017, By Cristina
Have been using the gel and liquid detergent for years and love them. They both do a great gob of cleaning and smell wonderful. Using the gel as dishwashing liquid, Handy Andy and to make window cleaner. Liquid detergent does a fab job of cleaning light stains. Fantastic product but would love to see Faithful stock the much larger 20/25kg options which are much better value for money as dealing with manufacturer directly is a nightmare.
02/07/2017, By Lauren
Smells delicious and works well. A little messy to use, but its not a problem.
29/06/2017, By Candice
Great product - leaves a faint orange smell on laundry, which I love. I've been using it in combination with Bio Bleach in my front loader and laundry comes out clean. No side effects at all.
20/06/2017, By Lea
I LOVED the smell of this stuff and there's such a noticeable difference in softness when using this product compared to standard detergents. The only issue I have is that it does not clean whites all that well... I had to add some "aids" to make that clean better.
15/06/2017, By Jo
I have recommend this product to so many friends! love this smell so much I put some in the water I clean the floors with.
15/06/2017, By Mary
I have been using this laundry detergent for about three years now, and am not tempted to move to another brand. Great for grey water systems too!
15/06/2017, By Marina
Not at this stage - there appears to be a quality problem with the product. I have been using this amazing product for years now for my washing, over time the product has become diluted, so I ended up having to use more. I opened my latest container now, only to find that it is almost like water. Hope it gets replaced?
07/06/2017, By Ash
This product smells great, and cleans the clothes much better than I thought. It does get a little messy at times, but its worth it for a green clean. Very dirty clothes need a bit extra to really clean, but the tub still lasts quite a while!
05/06/2017, By Farryn
Best Organic machine washing gel I have used. Everything comes out smelling great without leaving that hard feeling.
05/06/2017, By Joanne
Have been using triple orange products fore some years now - it is the only cleaning agent used in the house. It's not only good for laundry (removes strange stains and oils with minimum effort). It's wonderful for dishwashing, cleaning floors and tiles, etc. Absolutely brilliant on burnt pans (just spray triple orange on the burnt parts, cover with some boiling water and leave to stand for 5 mins. Then wipe the burn off!)
02/06/2017, By Elsabe
It helps to put a spoon measure inside the tub - it lasts much longer than the recommended washes and the clothes comes out clean with a lovely smell. Can get a bit messy with times but still worth washing your clothes with a natural product.
01/06/2017, By Heidi
Cleans well and leaves my laundry smelling awesome.
31/05/2017, By Des
I love this laundry gel as it is safe for my eczema-prone skin and cleans my laundry really well, especially when combined with the Londa Bio Bleach. I find that this combo got rid of old stains on my dog towels, even though they'd been in the wash with other detergents very regularly.
30/05/2017, By Tamarin
I absolutely love the smell of this product! So clean and fresh! I love that it doesn't leave any residue on my clothes! Me and my toddler have sensitive skins and I love that we don't have to give our clothes an extra rinse as we did before, saving time, water and money.
27/05/2017, By Jessica
Works very well. Great for sensitive skin!
25/05/2017, By Eline
Have been using this for years, it's gentle on sensitive skin, smells divine, I do not need to add softener, and my clothes are clean.
Every now and then I try out another green laundry detergent, and while some are great, I also find myself excited to get back to Triple Orange.
26/04/2017, By Carol
Love this produce - I have extreme sensitivity to most cleaning products - and NO reaction to this. Sometimes availability is the only issue.
20/04/2017, By Max
I love this laundry liquid, but Im kind of getting fed up with the fact that its so often out of stock.
20/04/2017, By Max
I love this laundry liquid, but Im kind of getting fed up with the fact that its so often out of stock.
19/04/2017, By NV
Best laundry detergent ever! Love the fresh orange smell when taking out the clean laundry from the washing machine.
11/03/2017, By Taryn
This gel type laundry liquid works really well. It cleans effectively, leaves no residue and is gentle on my sensitive eczema prone skin. It also has a mild, pleasant natural orange smell. Only fault is that it can be a little messy when adding the liquid from your tablespoon into the dispenser of your washing machine.
26/02/2017, By Eline
I have tried many natural detergents, but for about 8 years now this is always the one I go back to.
Lovely but subtle smell, gentle, clean well, no skin reactions, no softener needed.
31/01/2017, By Nicole
I bought a massive tub and am happy but my whites aren white...I add a cup of white vinegar to the washes (hoping for whiter whites and softening)...and the last wash I soaked the items with stains overnight with vinegar...however the stains didn come out. Ive read through the reviews and will try putting some of the product on collars, tea towels before the wash...
06/01/2017, By Lyle
I have yet to actually use this product, however, the overwhelming positive reviews from other users speaks for itself. What REALLY impressed me was the fantastic service I received upon purchasing the product. I was consistently updated via email and received my product literally within 24 hours.

Faithful to Nature, you have definitely won me over with your service. I will be recommending you to anyone that will listen.
03/01/2017, By Victoria
I love this detergent. It cleans beautifully. The clothes are soft, so I don need a fabric softener too and best of all, it does NOT contain lavender. I strongly dislike the smell of lavender and I also believe it stimulates the production of Estrogen, making it unsuitable for children and men. The whole Triple Orange range is lovely.
06/12/2016, By nicolene
really washed well and is good value for money
06/12/2016, By Nici
We have a very sensitive dog. His skin was bright pink and irritated and the only thing that made a difference was Triple orange. I now wash everything with this product and his skin looks amazing. The constant itching is gone and he is much happier. On the downside I do really struggle getting rid of tough stains such as blood and certain food stains. How does everyone else handle this? The only thing I really don like about this product is how much I struggle to purchse it. This year I litterally was only able to purchase it once, then I tried do buy as much as my budget would allow. The reality is I do not have R500 available to spend on washing powder only and would once again have to opt for another washing powder until stock is available. Bey Bey itch free dog.
07/11/2016, By Max
I was very skeptical when purchasing this because of the mixed reviews, however, Im really happy with it. It cleans well for me in both hot and cold water, it smells great (this doesn linger but I cant say Im bothered about it) and I havent had to go over the recommended quantity to get my washing clean. I ordered mine three weeks ago and I still have loads left over and I wash about three to four times a week...I also dont have to use a softener along with it. Im not sure why others havent had the same happy experience, but Im satisfied and so is my Grandmother who also decided to give this a go.
12/10/2016, By Lorna
I am very happy with this, and love the smell. Definitely getting it again. I don pay enough attention to my washing to say whether it is better or worse than other detergents, but my clothes certainly get clean, despite the best efforts of my toddler and my baby!
28/08/2016, By Beryl
I had to launder the clothes three times with this stuff. Not a good idea at all. May be the manufacturer needs to put the right info regarding how much quantity to use. Theres no way it can be used forty times when it leaves clothes dirty after washing except you use the forty times in one wash- which is a route i am NOT taking.
22/08/2016, By Julia
The product smells great but I battle to get the stains out of our clothes, especially my babies clothes. I end up using more than the recommended dosage in an attempt to get clean clothing- I am going to order a pre wash spray to see if that will make a difference.
16/08/2016, By Sanet
Works as well as normal washing powders, without powder residue. Also softens the fabric. I suspect it will work out cheaper too.
30/05/2016, By Sarah C
Having used commercial washing powders all my life I felt that this didnt wash my clothes AS well as a normal washing powder... I tended to put a bit extra into the wash which made it a bit stronger. Smells wonderful though. I will try it a bit longer but I am not yet entirely convinced!
01/05/2016, By Elizabeth
I can recommend this highly enough, it does what its supposed to do as well as eliminating the need for fabric softener and it smells wonderfully fresh and appealing.
29/04/2016, By Elize
Used it, loved it.
Smells great.
Another satisfied customer!
21/04/2016, By Yaksha
Its used in the washing machine and its the best change I have made. I do have to use softener though
13/04/2016, By Titilayo
Smells divine but doesn foam well and I find myself using a lot more than what the other reviewers described.
01/02/2016, By Joanna
Cleans even hard stains. I wiped a dry blood stain with the gel and left for half an hour then washed as normal and washed perfectly clean. I do soak dirty loads first and also add Probio general cleaner to dirty loads.
15/12/2015, By Theresa
Only needs a small amount per wash, clothes feel soft and smell beautifully fresh after washing.
12/11/2015, By Shann
This is the first time Ive tried a natural washing powder (although its a liquid) and I was skeptical at first. After the first wash my clothes came out clean, stains were gone and they were smelling great. I didn need to add fabric softener either. Like everyone else says - the nice smell does disappear when the clothes are dry but thats not a big deal. Its pricier than normal washing powder but you only use a table spoon per wash and you are saving on the fabric softener so I will definitely be buying this from now on.
27/10/2015, By Adele
Did not buy from Faithful, but I just have to say, the BEST DETERGENT EVER! Love the smell, gets rid of stains for real and really does preserve the integrity of fabrics. Will never use anything else!
01/10/2015, By Roanne
Won be using any other detergant ever again!
09/09/2015, By Natalie
This is the first natural detergent I have tried. The smell makes me want to eat it and it cleaned my clothes well. My only complaint is that my clothes felt a bit hard/stiff once they dried (as if they needed fabric softener). I would recommend it along with a little natural fabric softener, even though it says that you don need softener with it.
28/08/2015, By Biffie
Great product. Gentle on clothes. Cleans properly. Low fragrance -- gentle on my sinuses
27/08/2015, By kandis
Great product. Clothes smell great. Save for the garden
20/08/2015, By Brenda
Ive tried most of the natural laundry detergents and for me this one cleans the best in cold washes, doesn leave streaks and has a clean fresh smell. The one downside is that it is sticky and messy to use! However it definitely works best for me, and at the end of the day I need clean clothes and no skin allergies, so Im sticking to this one!
12/08/2015, By Liesa
Leaves clothes with a refreshing citrusy scent, and you don need fabric softener. Im happy.
09/08/2015, By Earthmama
Cleans well smells lovely (unfortunately the smell disappears when the clothes are dry), but definitely requires a softener (contrary to the advertising) as it leaves clothes very hard scratchy - would definitely not work for a baby! Just to add - our water comes from a natural spring is very soft.
07/08/2015, By Selma
Really a case of a little goes a long way. Cleans well and my clothes come out soft and residue-free. Unfortunately the wonderful citrus smell disappears as soon as the clothes are dry. The only slight negative is that measuring the cream straight from the tub is a bit messy, but I decanted it into a squeeze-bottle, and this works perfectly!
24/07/2015, By Jennifer
I am very happy with this product. Our main concern was finding a detergent that was bio-degradable as our grey water runs off onto the land. The fresh orange smell of the clean laundry is cherries on the cake. It even cleans my boyfriends very dirty work clothes, so Im happy!
19/07/2015, By Pier
This is the only thing I use for dark washing: it removes stains, smells nice and doesn make the clothes go hard. Have been using it for a couple of years now and very satisfied.
22/06/2015, By nicki
I love this product. It leaves your laundry smelling citrus fresh and it cleans well. Good value as you only need a small amount per wash
13/05/2015, By Margot
This is a great product, I like that you don have to use fabric softener! And my clothes, sheets etc smell great, lovely orange scent. And you use so little, the 1kg tub lasts me longer than store bought detergents.
Definitely recommend this!! :-)
12/05/2015, By Jonathan
To put this simple, its the best detergent Ive used.
Cleans better than any other Ive used before and no fabric softener is needed.

Leave clothing smell great.

If you react to of the shelf detergents then try this, you won look back
27/04/2015, By Kate
I have been using this product for about 18 months now. It is the best of all the natural detergents for washing machines that Ive tried. The smell in refreshing but natural and not overpowering on the dried clothes. It leaves no residue behind. I use one and a half scoops per full load. I would probably add a natural bleach for sheets if you are concerned with whites staying very bright over time.
10/04/2015, By Chantell
excellent product! Fresh, clean cloths guaranteed! Really impressed! Love the fresh orange smell!
16/03/2015, By Caroline
I noticed the difference in how clean my floors were immediately, and with less effort. My new favourite product
23/02/2015, By Colleen
Leaves our laundry smelling beautifully fresh! I love that our clothes are clean and that there are no nasty chemicals lurking in the fabrics, which are against our skin all day.
23/01/2015, By Talitha
Excellant Product!
20/11/2014, By Susan
This works like a dream :) And I looove the smell!! Great, that it comes it a 5l option - last really long!
25/09/2014, By Jessica
Wow – my clothes are so much softer when using this stuff in my washing machine, especially my towels. I don’t use fabric conditioner (it’s too expensive), but I don’t need any with this detergent! I did find that if I use it neat in my washing machine drawer, not all of it gets pulled through, so now I just mix it with some water in an old jar first, and then pour it into the detergent drawer. Works perfectly #9786;
09/09/2014, By Kariena
This doesn always wash the clothes very clean and it doesn smell nice after its dry like it did when its wet
13/07/2014, By Sharon
Loving using this detergent. Clothes are soft and smell fabulous
04/07/2014, By Janet
I use this for all my hand washing. Its so gentle on the hands, cleans well and smells amazing.
01/07/2014, By NATASHA
I am in love with my triple Orange Bio Detergent. It leaves the clothes so soft and smelling fresh and clean. The only downfall is that you have to use more than the recommended amount per wash which is not economical if you are on a budget, as the detergent is pricey for a small quantity.
21/05/2014, By Joanne
We use triple orange for almost everything in our household - from washing dishes, laundry, spot and stain removal (just rub directly onto the stain and leave a few minutes), to washing floors, counters, etc. I also like the feeling one has on ones hands after washing dishes as it is nowhere near as harsh as ordinary diswashing soap.
23/04/2014, By Petri
By far my favorite green product for the kitchen. Love the smell, no issues getting stains out and works fine without added softener.
05/03/2014, By Romy
The Bio-det Orange laundry liquid works a dream,
especially with our gym/running clothes which can pose a smelly challenge!
05/11/2013, By Roane
I love the smell of this product! Although I haven used it for laundry yet, I did use it to clean my chinchilla cages, and its wonderful! I know thats not what you
e supposed to use it for, but...
04/11/2013, By Chantal
Great Product.
23/10/2013, By Bronwin
amazing smell, brilliant product, no residue on the clothes and you dont need any fabric softener. great stufff!
26/09/2013, By Misha
I found I had to mix it with water and put it directly in the machine in a small plastic cup. too much effort - Im going back to my earthsap washing powder
10/12/2011, By Nadine
I think Enchantrix Laundry Liquid washes cleaner, but I like to add this as it leaves the clothes with a wonderful smell.
20/11/2011, By Ona
I also love the Triple Orange Bio-Detergent. The smell is divine! I also leaves my washing nice and soft.
08/11/2011, By Linda
This is the best product that I have ever used and I start feeling anxious if it looks as if I may run out before the next order arrives. However, it does stick to the dispenser but it is not too much trouble to remove it by adding some water. I will never do without this product.
29/10/2011, By Lauren
I've tried both "Triple Orange Bio-Detergent" and "Bloublommetjies Soapwort Laundry Liquid" and I think that "Triple Orange Bio-Detergent" is better. Triple Orange also gives the laundry and super fragrance.
16/09/2011, By Ann
I loved the scent the fact that softener was not needed as well.
31/08/2011, By Karien
I love this gel. It smells fantastic and really cleans my laundry well.
29/08/2011, By Barbara
This stuff is the best. It seems to last forever and a day. It is powerful but gentle on my clothes and not having to use a softener is a bonus. Smells wonderful as well.
28/07/2011, By Candice
Leaves such a lovely scent on my laundry. In fact, I was watching a bee buzzing around my laundry earlier - he seemed to like it too.
02/06/2011, By Laura
Love this stuff!! Amazing smell and I don't have to add softener at all!
03/05/2011, By Maritza
Of all the detergents on offer at FTN, this one is my absolute favourite and by far the best. It cleanses the clothes brilliantly, leaves it soft and smelling lovely and citrusy. Only downfall, it sticks to the detergent drawer in my washing machine, so I thin it with a bit of water and no more sticking. A definite winner!
23/04/2011, By Lauren
I like the smell of this laundry detergent. However, it is not very economical. I have to use more than the stated dose in order to get my laundry really clean. I expected more, because the Triple Orange All purpose Gel is amazing and goes so far. This was a big let down in comparison. I far far prefer Seventh Generation laundry liquid and powder. I wish FTN would stock that brand.
06/04/2011, By Santie
The best of the best! Love the smell, and it really does clean our dirty gym clothes well.
27/03/2011, By Margo
I like this product but I prefer Enchantrix. This also left some marks on some of my clothes.
12/03/2011, By Anita
I use this product to handwash all my underclothes. It does not leave an irritating powder residue if not rinsed thoroughly - a plus for those with skin allergies, - and it has the most amazing scent which remains in your clean laundry. It also goes a long way.
25/01/2011, By Alison
Super lovely smell and extremely great value for money, I won be going back to store bought washing detergents after using this.
22/01/2011, By Val
I use a scoop or two of the diluted orange bio wash detergent with the Biowash Ball. The ball works very well on its own but I like the extra bit! I also then just take a small amount of it and put it in a bottle diluted with water and use that for general cleaning.
