About this item:
This bulk box contains enough laundry soap for 546 HE loads (or 273 loads in older style machines). This ultra-concentrated, color safe soap is made by powdering tallow soap with earth friendly cleaning aids.
This is a great alternative to "baby" brand washing detergents. Absolutely safe for your diapers and everything baby related.
How to Use:
200 oz. bulk box. Add 1 tablespoon or 1 wooden scoop (included with each glass jar) to running water. Please note that there will be variances in the soap "crumbles" as this product is made with human hands. Before first use, give it a good shake and mix it up. Do not use on silk. Do not mix with chlorine bleach.
This concentrated laundry soap is gluten free, earth friendly, sulfate free, phosphate free, and paraben free.
All of our products are processed entirely by hand from start to finish. From measuring ingredients to putting the labels on the jars and bars, it’s all done by hand. All of our products are made from food-grade oils and all-natural ingredients.
Laundry soap (Lancaster County tallow, water, and lye), oxygen bleach, sodium bicarbonate, washing soda, pure essential oils (unless unscented)
This is the first “natural” brand of laundry detergent that actually gets my clothes clean. With others like 7th generation or Mrs. Myers, the clothes would start to smell no matter how many times they were washed. With Tandi’s, they just smell clean with no heavy fragrance scent.
Also, I love the option to buy bulk because it makes the laundry soap more affordable. I bought the jar and scoop first and now refill it.
I LOVE Tandi's unscented laundry powder!
Pros: Supporting local business. Great natural product that works well for everyone (baby-safe) - it has been very gentle for my sensitive skin/allergy-prone household as well as effectively cleaning all colors and white clothing. Better on the environment than most - you can order their glass jar initially and simply re-order bulk packs of the powdered soap to refill your jar. It also comes with a wooden scoop that makes measuring easy. We have an older agitator washer that I pour the powder directly into the wash basin area, so I can't speak to HE washers, but I don't see it having an issue. We do several loads of laundry each week, and the jar's volume has lasted us 4-6months at about 1 scoop per load.
Cons: These things are not an issue for me, but I'm sure someone out there might disagree. It is a powder, and I find it dissolves well if the water is at least lukewarm temperature. If you're doing cold wash only, it might not dissolve as well by nature of the product (no bad stuff fillers). The soap (unscented) has a very light, slightly peppery smell that I notice when scooping from the jar, but no funny smells once the clothes have been washed. I am told I have an over-sensitive nose, so you might not even notice. If you have extra tough dirt and stains, it's not quite as rough as the commercial (chemical-based) brands, but I've used Sonnett's gall soap on stains and then washed in this and it's gotten out some serious stains quite nicely. While it's great for most general clothing fabric materials, if you have silk or wool, you'll need something different. Last, but not least, it's not the cheapest thing out there... it's definitely higher quality, and worth the price in my opinion.
