What brand of Washing Powder/Liquid do you use?

I love Cold Power, it gets the clothes clean and it smells fresh and clean, but I can only afford to buy it if its on special and I have to get the cheaper ones in between.
Do you have a cheaper washing powder that actually works?


Got an Answer?

I use the earth liquid. Only because my husband is sensitive 😒 Lol. Anyway it's not bad, not a huge smell though.

 I use this on all bub's clothes but OMO for the rest. Its the only stuff I've found that works on hubby's work clothes 😝

Trimat advance (Aldi version of omo) well that's what I think.
It's great.
I only buy Omo when it's 1/2 price.

 I buy OMO when it's on special too! I stock up so I never pay full price 😝

 The Aldi one is supposed to be good too (from choice study). havent tried it yet, will try it next time.

Omo liquid and dynamo liquid. I only buy it at half price which is about every second week

 This is what I do and use half as much. But other than that Radiant is supposed to be fairly good at geting stains out.

 ^no not at all. Choice and other studies show it to be the most effective. I buy it when its $9 for 2KG on special, and use half the recommended amount. Works great.

I love soap nuts. You can use them so many times and they do a great job especially if you add a bit of soap but liquid. I just started using them this year and will never go back my clothes no longer have that waxy feel to them. And I use a homemade fabric softener. This combined is awesome and will save my machine also

I prefer to use eco store or earth but my husband prefers cold power or omo. He works away so I use mine while he's away but I have a few jugs/bottles/whatever you call them of his preferences for when he's home (I stockpile groceries anyway)

Usually we buy a big box from Big W, but I haven't been there lately so Aldi it is ATM. Don't like it as it has little scent.

homebrand ....need money for smokes

Coles and ww have it on special heaps. Maybe buy an extra one or two when they are on 1/2 price or if it's on special on your non shopping week grab one if you go there. Check out $ per litre/kg. I always stock up when on special as everything always runs out and you need it when not on special. So annoying.

omo sensitive it's the only one I have sound not to fire up my kids excema
