Natural Laundry Detergent

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.

No Hassle Refund
Our customers are frequently surprised that such a small amount of product gets the job done. If that doesn’t turn out to be the case for you we offer a no-hassle refund.

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. This is also recommended for clothes that have mildewed from remaining in the washer too long after the cycle completed. Do not combine vinegar with bleach or oxygen bleach.

I recommend this product

Love it

I first bought this product at a makers market in Minneapolis. Me and my boyfriend are stuck on this detergent. We love that our clothing doesn’t have a fake perfumed scent and we don’t have to lug around giant detergent containers. Wonderful product, quick delivery & also lasts a very long time!

I own a mobile pet grooming business and launder a load of towels every day- not only does this laundry soap effectively clean my towels, it has the added benefit of lavender, the calming essential oil, which may help the pets I groom to feel a bit more calm (and hopefully pampered), during the grooming process. Thanks!

Light and so fresh!

I love this detergent. It cleans so well and leaves our laundry smelling just slightly lavender which is so nice that it's not overpowering. Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE that the refill option comes in a compostable bag! Such awesome commitment to our planet!

Just started using this and really like it. Love how it takes so little to wash clothes and make them smell amazing.

Great Product, Long Lasting

I haven't bought this product since Whoa Nellie got its own web page, but I bought the laundry detergent off of Etsy a long time ago, nearly a year ago now! I highly recommend the product because it smells great, is gentle on fabrics (even for handwashing), and it lasts a really long time! You can feel good about your impact on the planet while taking good care of your clothes! Not to mention, the packaging can be reused for other things in the future!
