Pros: chemical-free, cold-water compatible
Cons: could be more effective, not a great value
I used this detergent for many months. It works very well in soft water, but not as well in hard water. The value is not great, in that the 52 oz bottle only gets you about 16 loads, and that costs almost $10 - or certainly more if you have to go out of town or have it shipped in to get it (I paid $15 for my first bottle since they didn't carry it at my local health food store and it had to be shipped). I certainly prefer it to nasty-smelling, chemical- and petroleum-laden commercial laundry detergents, even for the price, but I have found a far better product and will not willingly buy this one again.
