Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soap Product Review
I had the pleasure of reviewing Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda. This is a truly wonderful product. This 1.6lb bag of laundry soda washes 50 loads of laundry! Yes, I said 50 loads all in a compact package. No more bulky boxes or bottles to lug around. It’s all natural, biodegradable, non-toxic, hypoallergenic and HE certified. What more can you ask for in a laundry detergent?!?
I usually stay away from powdered laundry detergent because I find they don’t normally fully dissolve and it irritates my skin. This wasn’t the case with Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda. I tried a dissolving test to see if it would actually fully dissolve. I got two glasses and put hot water in the one to the left and cold water in the one to the right. I put one scoop of powder in each glass and stirred. I was amazed that both glasses completely dissolved. ￼￼
Once the dissolving test was complete, it was time to round up all of our dirty clothes and hit the laundry room. I even grabbed some of our kitchen hand towels from the linen closet. No matter how many times I had washed them in the past they had a nasty musty-greasy smell to them. I know gross right! So I added my scoop of laundry soda to each load and we waited until they were done. When we were folding the clothes, we noticed the laundry smelled clean even the kitchen hand towels, the musty-greasy smell was gone! The next time you need to get more laundry detergent why not give Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda a try?

From Nellie’s All Natural FAQ section:
What’s in the Laundry Soda?
SODA ASH – (SODIUM CARBONATE) also known as washing soda. In domestic use, it’s used as a water softener during laundry.
SODIUM METASILICATE – A major use is as a builder (a material that enhances or maintains the cleaning efficiency of a surfactant, principally by inactivating water hardness) in soaps and detergents
SODIUM CHLORIDE – Sodium chloride, also known as common salt, table salt, or halite. As well as the familiar uses of salt in cooking, salt is used in many applications, from manufacturing pulp and paper to setting dyes in textiles and fabric, to producing soaps and detergents.
CITRIC ACID – This is a weak organic acid. It serves as an environmentally benign cleaning agent and acts as an antioxidant.
The Detergent is a coconut based (LAURYL) Ethoxylated fatty alcohol. Coconut oil on its own will wash nothing. It is therefore chemically modified so that it becomes surface active and thus performs like a detergent. This commodity is widely used by many detergent manufacturers because it is readily biodegradable, non toxic and mild and efficient. It is also NOT Petroleum based.
How do I use the Laundry Soda?
For best results use one tablespoon of Laundry Soda per LARGE wash load. Wash according to the specific instructions on your garments. Make sure to always test first on garments that may bleed or fade. Nellie’s™ Laundry Soda dissolves quickly in cold or hot water.
Is the Laundry Soda scented?
Traditional laundry detergents use scent to mask odors rather than remove them. Many people associate the fresh smell of scented products with cleanliness. Traditional soaps will clean and scent the surface but may not actually penetrate the material. Once the fragrance from the detergent dissipates, the musty smell may return.
Nellie’s laundry soda is unscented and designed to penetrate the fabric as well as remove the odors, not mask them. Nellie’s rinses clear and leaves no residue.
If you would like your laundry to have a scent, consider a natural linen spray or a lavender pouch that can be placed in the dryer.
