Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent Review and Giveaway!--Ends September 2, 2011



Since I have worked with Tropical Traditions, I have discovered many wonderful products doing these reviews and giveaways for their company.  My most recent find from them is their Powdered Laundry Detergent that comes in a five-pound plastic jar.

This morning I tried this detergent for the first time.  To begin with, I loved how they packaged a measuring cup that you can actually see the markings on unlike some others!  The screw cap container itself was handy instead of digging into a box that always seems to spill out in the process.  

Knowing this ultra-concentrated detergent was environmentally friendly made me feel even better, not to mention that it rinses away completely.  I loved that this product did not contain any  phosphates, dyes, fragrances, or fillers and leaves no chemical by-products in its tracks.  The fact that this detergent works in all temperatures on everything from brights, whites to permanent press with the exception of silk or wool was an added plus .  

I followed the directions for a normal load and added one-fourth cup of this detergent, which got my clothes clean and bright nicely with that built-in Oxygen Bleach De-Stainer and Deodorizer.   Unless you have exceptionally large load full of heavily soiled things such as when the kids make mud pies or decorate themselves with their desserts from accidental mishaps or a food fight, then you can resort to the suggested one-half cup per load.  Otherwise, I think the one-fourth cup works perfectly.

I was delighted how far this jar will go because a little goes a long way!  I really do think Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent is a great all-around product for your washing machine, wallet, and the planet!  

*Disclaimer:  This is my own honest opinion.  No money was exchanged.  All I received was a free product to facilitate this review.*

Thanks to Tropical Traditions, one lucky Nuts 4 Stuff reader in the United States or Canada wins a five-pound jar of their own Powdered Laundry Detergent ($30 value)!
