Scent

This laundry soap will lighten your load on laundry days because you don’t have to worry about harmful ingredients hiding inside. You also don’t need to toss or recycle anything because it’s packaged in a tin that can be reused with zero-waste laundry detergent refills.

For High-Efficiency and Standard Washers
Containers wash 120 loads in a high-efficiency washer or 60 loads in a standard washer. A small plastic measuring scoop is included.

Light and Fresh Scent
The soap is naturally scented with essential oils that leave sheets, towels and clothes smelling light and fresh. Choose from four scents or try the unscented laundry detergent for sensitive skin.

For a Full Laundry Detox 
We also recommend replacing dryer sheets and fabric softener with a set of wool dryer balls.

This product is:

  • safe for high-efficiency machines
  • biodegradable and safe for septic systems
  • non-toxic 
  • made with essential oils 
  • made in the USA 
  • free of phosphates and sulfates
  • free of artificial colors, fragrances and preservatives

Use one scoop of powder (1/2 tablespoon) for high efficiency (HE) machines and two scoops (one tablespoon) for standard washing machines.


Sprinkle powder directly into the washer rather than the detergent tray, then add items.

For gym clothes or items that require extra deodorizing we recommend adding 1/2 cup to one cup of distilled white vinegar to the rinse cycle. Do not combine vinegar with bleach or oxygen bleach. 

This is a non-toxic laundry soap but it's not for consumption--please keep it out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact with eyes occurs, flush with water thoroughly.

Avoid use with delicate fabrics.

Love it

The lemongrass scent is lovely, and my laundry comes out super clean. I will say the scent does not linger after drying which is a bit of a bummer, but clothes do smell fresh

Natural laundry detergent - LOVE!!

I LOVE this product!! I have been using it for about a month now and I can’t give enough compliments. The smell is amazing, the packaging is SO CUTE, and I feel like my clothes are cleaner than they were with regular detergents. I’m slowly moving towards using more natural products this year and will definitely be purchasing more from the shop!!

Whoa Nelli Lover

First of all, the containers are great. The laundry soap tin is a perfect size for me. It’s big enough to hold a lot of soap but small enough for my arthritic hands to maneuver. The scour product shaker tin is also a perfect size. Secondly, the products themselves are very effective. I am impressed and grateful for these products.

Love this laundry detergent

I have used the lavender laundry detergent for a few months now, it lasts forever and leaves laundry clean, soft and smelling fresh. I’ve just started using the lemongrass and the scent is amazing

Clean and easy

I ordered the citrus scent. My order arrived within 4days. My product was intact. I was skeptical about using such a small amount for my load of clothing but I went with the directions. Our laundry smelled fresh and clean. I will be re ordering when I run out. I also intend to buy other scents to use for different items.

Amazing product!

I have been trying to find more sustainable alternatives to incorporate into my everyday life and I have finally pulled the trigger on switching from tide pods...and I’m not going back. And what better way to switch than to buy from a small business! This laundry soap makes my clothes smell fresh and clean! I look forward to exploring more of what Whoa Nelli has to offer. Give this small business a shot, you won’t be disappointed!

Amazing laundry soap

I love this soap--I was looking for something that had a nice but not overpowering smell that was eco friendly and this powder is great. My clothes smell fresh and there is a slight fragrance but it's mild. Clothes feel clean.

Perfect and smalls amazing

We LOVE this detergent and have been using it for a couple of years now. I hate the smell of commercial detergents, but this lemongrass scent gives a clean, "chemical-free" scent upfront that doesn't linger on the clothes - perfect for me! It cleans well, even when it comes to my face wipes. Really love that a small amount goes a long way!

Game changer!

Not only does this product smell amazing, it cleans like you need it to and it is a game changer for my families sensitive skin. I’ve since thrown every other product in my laundry room away and use this (not kidding! I have lavender & rose mint-both amazing) with the wool dryer balls. I also add some vinegar for an extra kick of clean to the loads of my husbands scrubs (b/c Covid)-he’s even noticed a huge difference and he normally doesn’t notice anything. I am so happy I found this brand on EWG.com and tried it! (I also use the bar soap and love it!) can’t wait to try more products!
