This natural laundry detergent so far seems to do the job. I have used it on moderately soiled clothes, a true test would be kids clothes. It takes very little to do a full load and I found it cleaned well and had a fresh scent. It is hypo-allergenic which is a good thing when using on linens etc. especially for guests when you don't know their sensitivities. It is pricey but the 50oz bottle is to do 32 average loads. I noticed Costco is carrying more green products so I will be on the look out to see if they carry it in a more economical size. They claim it is safe for septic systems and greywater systems as well.
