I don't like this washing powder and have now binned it. It doesn't seem to dissolve properly and seemed to crystallize in the washing drawer. Tried sprinkling the power straigt into the drum, still didn't dissovle properly. All dark coloured clothes dried with white marks all over them. After each wash the drum was coated with a white residue. Tried dissolving powder in some water before putting in the drawer/drum, and still had the same problem with white marks. Took three attempts to wash white marks out of clothes with some vinegar and liquid detergent. Perhaps this powder does not work well in hard water areas. For the time, effort and water wasted, I would not recommend this product.
Nice idea, but packing is not recyclable. rnrnIf you want laundry to smell of nothing it's good.rnrnI will be swapping back to my usual laundry solution

Firstly its shameful that the packaging is not recyclable. Can you believe it!rnSecondly this powder is so user unfriendly that I find it hard to believe the good reviews have been left by real customers.rnThe powder Does Not dissolve in the washing machine drawer then turns into rock hard lumps. I tried breaking it up and wash for a second time but I shouldn't have bothered as my laundry came out soiled still. Come on Bio D. Admit this and its packaging is an embarrassment.

Q: Just wondering how many washes a pack of this will produce. I currently use Soap Nuts and wonder is this is more economical?
A: The performance will vary depending on the type of water, type of washing process and the degree of soiling. According to the information on the pack, if a front loading automatic washing machine is used to clean average soiling - 60ml will be required in soft water environments; 80ml will be required in hard water environments; 100ml will be required in very hard water environments.

Q: How well does this powder work in cold water? I prefer to wash in cold water wherever possible (like I always have in Australia) but I'm not sure if you can do the same here?
A: Thr Manufacturer advises that this product works best at 30 degrees, their laundry liquid will work at 15 degrees. They advise that it should cause no harm to your laundry in cold water, but it hasn't been tested in cold water.
