Powder is Better – for You and the Planet!

powder

All month long, we’ve talked about why powder is better than liquid. From being more eco-friendly to being hypoallergenic, it’s clear that powder is best! We’ve rounded up all the reasons we love powder detergent below!

Eco-Friendly

For us, using powder is a no-brainer. The plant-based formula of our Laundry Soda is biodegradable, so it’s gentle on the earth while tackling tough stains. The Laundry Soda is created with renewable energy, thanks to its plant-based surfactant, because plants grow back! Traditional liquid detergents consist of mostly water – at Nellie’s, we don’t think moving water around the planet does anyone any good. Our Laundry Soda can be packaged more efficiently, minimizing impact on the environment.

Effective

Simply put, there is more cleaning power packed into powder! Nellie’s Laundry Soda is more concentrated than traditional detergents, so one tablespoon is all you need for every regular-sized load. It saves the planet and saves your dollars! Many conventional powder detergents use suds-producing fillers, like SLS and SLES, which give the impression of a ‘better clean’ because of their bubbles. However, they can hurt your HE machine! Nellie’s Laundry Soda is a low-sudsing detergent, making it better for you, the planet, and your HE washing machine.

Hypoallergenic

Our Laundry Soda has no fillers and contains only four ingredients. The formula rinses clear every time, leaving no traces behind to irritate your skin – no perfumes, no phosphates, no optical brighteners, and no solid synthetics. You get a cleaner clean every time, with no unnecessary extras.
