Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Sustainability Features

Origin

  • Produced and packaged in Chicago, Illinois, USA

Ingredients

  • Unscented Laundry Powder: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Carbonate, Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water]
  • Lavender Laundry Powder: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Carbonate, Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water], Organic Lavandula Hybrida Grosso (Lavender) Oil
  • Lemon Laundry Powder: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Carbonate, Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water], Organic Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil
  • Lemon, Lavender, Clove Laundry Powder: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Carbonate, Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water], Organic Euginia caryophyllata (Clovebud) Oil, Organic Lavandula Hybrida Grosso (Lavender) Oil, Organic Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil
  • Additional information: sodium bicarbonate, aka baking soda, is a natural odor neutralizer. Sodium carbonate, aka 'washing soda' or soda ash, is a pH adjuster–raising the pH of washing water for a more effective clean. Sodium cocoate is the chemical name of coconut oil that has been saponified (aka 'made into soap'). Sodium sunflowerate is the chemical name of sunflower seed oil that has been saponified. There will be some coconut and sunflower seed oils left in the soap after they are saponified, due to the fact that Meliora uses sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process. Leaving these excess oils in the soap ensures there is NO remaining lye in the finished product, and gives the soap its lather and moisture. This process is also called 'superfatting'. Glycerin is naturally created when the oils are converted into soap–and helps to keep skin soft, and is an effective solvent, making it great for dissolving stains and dirt. Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve the lye, and then is dried out over several weeks, resulting in a hard soap bar with very little water leftover. There is ~5% water leftover in these soap bars, compared to liquid soap that contains ~60% water.

They’re conscious about choosing ingredients that are effective, safe for the home and body, and cause no trouble for Mother Earth after the chores are said and done.

    Doesn't dissolve in the washing machine

    sarahmckenzie3245 (verified owner)

    I had high hopes for this product based on the positive reviews, but this didn’t work for me. After the cycle is completed and I am taking my clothes out, I still see the powder all over some of the clothes. This happens regardless of the temperature of the water or the amount of clothing I put in. Since the detergent isn’t even dissolving, it makes me think my clothes aren’t even being properly cleaned. Also, I might as well have bought the unscented version (I got lavender) because there is absolutely no scent after the cycle is done. I only gave it two stars because I think the packaging is nice.

      Hey Sarah! We’re sorry to hear that this detergent isn’t working out as well as you had hoped! Ensuring that you are using the correct amount of detergent for your washing machine can help with this issue – 1/2 a scoop for HE machines and 1 scoop for regular machines! Because every washer can be different, we also recommend troubleshooting and trying different (smaller) amounts with your machine to see if that does the trick. Our team will be in touch to assist!

    Great in cold water

    Erica (verified owner)

    We have an HE washer and use cold water wash. I used the 1/2 TB (they provide a TB scoop) and clothes come out clean and smell lightly lemony. My only suggestion would be for them to include a 1/2 TB scoop so I don’t eyeball half. (HE are 1/2; large loads 1; non HE washers 1).

    Leaves my laundry smelling great as well as clean. I don’t even need a laundry booster with this detergent. Small drawback is that I wash in cold so sometimes some of the detergent doesn’t devolve well. Small amount but still, something that happens with cold washes

    Almost perfect

    Stefanie (verified owner)

    Lavender scent is light and not overwhelming. Doesn’t linger on clothes. Four stars because I need to use warm wash or the soap doesn’t dissolve well and clean clothes thoroughly. I use this for regular laundry and towels on warm wash – works fine. I wish I could use this with cold water with the same success.

    We are on our second cannister’s worth of this detergent and love it. I like pairing each scoop of this detergent with a scoop of their oxygen booster powder for extra oomph, since our clothes are often physically soiled from working outside/working in a kitchen.

    I purchased the unscented laundry powder, and have used it for a few loads so far. It has made my clothes and towels look, smell, and feel really clean and fresh. I plan to buy more unscented, and will also buy a bag of the other scents to try them, as well. I have an LG front-loader washing machine, and have just placed a half scoop (half tablespoon) on top of the clothes before closing the door and beginning the cycle per other user suggestions. I haven’t tried placing the powder in the dispenser yet.

    The lavender smell of this detergent is like crack (I assume). Not sure why other reviewers haven’t found it to work but my clothes come out smelling divine – including the smelly baby diapers I regularly wash with it! Obviously, it doesn’t just smell great, my gear is clean and it doesn’t clump. I add it to my front loading machine after I’ve placed all the dirties in before closing the door. Also very happy that there is no plastic waste!

I have a front loading machine and you just needed amount on before closing the door – didn’t find it clumping up at all. I wish it left a little bit more of a scent, hence why the four stars. Definitely ordering again.

    Eco-Friendly, But Didn't Get Clothes Clean

    kylierwill (verified owner)

    This product didn’t dissolve all the way in my top-loader. I went to pull the clothes out and noticed I still had white pellets of soap all over. They seem to dissolve better the more hot you get the water, but my clothes weren’t getting really clean, either. I gave up on this laundry powder after a few weeks of pulling out dirty clothes and soap pellets. I love the ingredient list, what the company stands for, etc. but it just didn’t work out for me.

    Clothes come out smelling dirty

    lidiakartashova (verified owner)

    I don’t have an HE washer, so I used the recommended amount of powder with my clothes. Unfortunately, the clothes came out smelling like a combination of laundry detergent and dirty laundry. I ended up having to use 3 scoops of detergent per load to get rid of the smell, giving me little incentive to repurchase once I run out. I was really rooting hoping I would like this detergent, to support a small local business.

    Cute Product, Simple Ingredients

    Lucy_B (verified owner)

    The lavender smell in the box is very strong (almost overpowering), but it does not leave any scent on clothes. I would have liked a light lavender scent left on the clothes. It cleaned my clothes well, but I will see how it handles the smell of my workout gear. It is smaller than I expected, but very cute! I can’t hold it by the top otherwise the bottom half will drop on the floor, so I may get the bigger size in the future, so I’m not as worried about dropping it. It is cheaper than most other eco-friendly laundry solutions. My only concern is inhaling the laundry detergent, but it didn’t look like people had concerns about that from the quick research I did.

      Hi Samantha, thank you for sharing your feedback! For HE Washers, Meliora recommends 1/2 scoop (1/2 tbsp) but for Standard Washers, they recommend doubling and using use 1 scoop (1 tbsp). Borax can be added as an extra booster if you choose! A team favorite is adding a bit of essential oil to your dryer balls before drying to infuse some scent into your clothes sans-dryer sheet, too.

    I’ve been using soap nuts for a while now and while they work well for cleaning and getting everyday dirt out of clothing they don’t do a whole lot for odor elimination so overtime I found my clothes just weren’t smelling as clean as they could. I went with the unscented version of this detergent because I have sensitive skin and after just 1-2 washes my clothes are smelling fresher than ever! Plus I love that I can get refills and keep using the same container and scoop as long as possible.

    I’ve been using the lavender laundry powder for a couple of months now. My clothes come out clean, but they don’t really smell like anything. My apartment complex laundry room doesn’t have HE washers, so I have to use more. I think if you have an HE washer this is a great solution for you. But I might look into the Eco Egg for my situation. Overall, though, it’s a better solution to grocery store laundry detergent in plastic bottles and gets the job done.

      Hi GJ, we are so sorry you aren’t loving this laundry powder as you’d expected. This Meliora laundry powder is low-sudsing, making it great for HE and regular washers! Increasing the amount will not create more suds. If you are looking for something a bit more scented, we love adding a Dropps Laundry Scent Booster pod to the load!

    I think it does great on casual clothes, whites and towels/linens. I do use their stain bar soap to compliment this laundry detergent when I have a stain.

      Hi! We get this question quite often so please know that you are not alone on this one :D. We recommend giving the canister a good shake. If you still cannot find it, then we recommend pouring out some of the powder into another container that will be easy to pour it back into the canister. Everyone has been able to find their scoop! If for some odd reason the scoop isn’t in there please give us an email at support@earthhero.com.

    Not good for heavily soiled clothes

    kschmidt27 (verified owner)

    It gets 3 stars for having a plastic free option, nice refillable container, usa made, & fragrance free. I really wanted to love it but as for cleaning power, it just didn’t cut it. I think if you have lightly soiled clothes it would probably work fine, but it does not clean cloth diapers (had to wash twice to remove odor) or remove food stains from clothes, bibs, ect. So not a good fit for parents with young kids.

    Soooo good!!!

    This stuff seriously performs better than tide. The scent isn’t overpowering at all, the powder form and paper packaging are eco friendly, and all of my clothes come out very clean (even on cold wash). There are literally no cons!

    Not very sudsy

    alekbartrosouf (verified owner)

    Maybe my observation isn’t indicative of the product’s effectiveness, but the powder doesn’t sud very much when mixed with water. Its hard to tell if its doing the trick. I assume and hope yes though, just not what I am used to.

    I love this. I use both the soap nuts and this, depending on what I wash. I did buy the canister, so that I can refill later, and it was supposed to come with a scoop, but it doesn’t look like it did. I have a scoop that came with my french press that I’m not using, so I’m using that instead. However, I feel that I’m more likely to blow through this detergent with my scoop because I think it may be a bit too big. Either way, this is the soap I use when not using the soap nuts. I’ve seen a residue on one pair of shorts, but I think it might’ve been because I used too much for that wash, so I’ve adjusted. Will definitely be purchasing the refills in the future.

      Hi Jacquelyn! The canister should have come with a scoop – maybe it’s buried at the bottom :D?? Meliora recommends for HE Washers, to use 1/2 scoop (aka 1/2 tbsp). For Standard Washers, use 1 scoop (aka 1 tbsp). We hope this helps!

    y.sal25g (verified owner)

    I have been using this detergent for a couple of weeks now and I do really love it. I didn’t think it would clean well specially my cloth diapers, but to my surprise it does clean it very well and there is no smell after. My baby gets rashes depending on the detergent I use, but this has been gentle on her skin. No bad rashes or anything of that sort. I would definitely recommend this.

    dmossgirl

    This smells great and seems to work very well. I love that the scoop helps my husband know the correct amount (he normally uses more than recommended of laundry detergent). One negative for those trying to go completely plastic free: the scoop is made of plastic. I was hoping it was of a more durable/natural material and was a bit diaappointed.

    I really love Meliora’s products and this laundry powder is no exception. I love that is comes plastic free and refills are so easy. It really is affordable, especially for HE washers. I wish the scent lingered longer on dry clothes, but that is a minor preference in comparison to how great the product is overall.

    Fresh Smell

    allisonguggenheimer (verified owner)

    Loved the lemon scented powder. Doesn’t leave a strong scent, but pleasant to use. Dissolves easily in the wash and leaves our clothes as clean as “conventional” detergent. No skin reactions which is awesome. Also we’re very outdoorsy, sporty (sweaty) people and this seemed to always get any odors out.

    Good powder detergent option

    Olivia (verified owner)

    My husband and I used up an entire Lemon scented container and are now using the Unscented variety. I usually end up using two full scoops per load in our old, front loading communal washer in our apartment complex and have been generally pleased with how clean my clothes are after. I am a farmer so my clothing tends to be very dirty as well, hence the two scoops per load as a rule. I will say my husband tried washing a fairly thick comforter recently and the powder didn’t dissolve completely and he had to wash it again with some liquid detergent we had stashed away. That’s the only time that the powder detergent hasn’t performed as it should since purchasing. Overall I’m very pleased with the product and will continue repurchasing.

    Packed improperly for shipping

    ljmjrk (verified owner)

    The brown bag was packed next to another product i had ordered that had blunt corners. The box corner put a hole in the brown bag and laundry detergent spilled into the outer shipping box and from there out onto my porch when delivered. More care needs to be taken when packing this brown bag product.

    Heather B. (verified owner)

    If you are trying to go zero waste or reduce your waste this is a great option. We don’t have refillable laundry detergent available where I live- so this is the next best thing. I have sensitive skin and am allergic to most conventional detergents and this stuff is great! Meliora is also a solid company that really practices what they preach. Can’t say enough positive things about this laundry detergent.

    Great company

    HappyCustomer (verified owner)

    I really like that the company uses minimal ingredients and strives to be as minimal waste as possible. I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel like we need to use a full scoop for our clothes to end up smelling clean, even though the directions state that with HE machines only a half scoop is needed. I have sensitive skin, so I definitely wash my intimates with the unscented detergent.
