    Hi i use a Costco own brand non boi washing powder. (Kirkland)It is safe for septic tanks.....! Very few of the other main brands state that this is the case. I use VERY little in the wash and dont put softeners in for the last rinse - too highly perfumed.  Extra rinse is good too

    I have black cotton pants from J Lewis- no dye comes out - because of lack of bleach in the washing powder i dont like the grey look of off white pants which happens after a few washes with a gentle washing powder and i am NOT going  down the road of my great aunt a boil all whites!

    Good Luck

    Sue

    Hi mary

    Are you in the UK? If so I use Surcare. After washing I always give my clothse an extra cycle rinse through in the washing machine. Hope this helps you x

    I use Sunrider product called Sunbright. It's free of phosphates and is made of natural enzymes such as tea tree and lemon grass oil. I use a very small amount and I try not to get fabric softener on the load with my underwear in. (Occasionally happens and I rewash).

      hi sandra

      is this sunbright available in the uk ...do you know?

      i am aware of dr bronner's many different types of very pure soaps, for body for washing up and for washing clothes etc.     i think it comes from the US but it is pricey, tho very good and very comforting, absolutely no baddies in it (at last count!!). are you uk/usa  elsewhere?

    absolutely disolves  all  the soap.
