*** Please note: due to supply shortages we have temporarily replaced our original tin containers with similar white tin canisters with latching lids. The packaging is slightly different than what is pictured in the product photos. ***

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 100 loads in a high-efficiency washer or 50 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

Net weight: 25 oz. 

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.

Loving this detergent!

This laundry detergent works very well and it has natural ingredients to boot! You don’t use very much for each load so it goes a long way. So thankful for this product.

Safe and effective

I love Whoa Nellies laundry detergent! It gets laundry of all types clean and smells great. The greatest part is that it receives the best score from the Environmental Working Group. I would definitely recommend this product!

Lavender laundry soap

I really wanted a pouch but must have hit a wrong button. The new container is a lot smaller. I like the product and I always wonder why it comes from out west. I was hoping it was still from Iowa city area.

Whoa Nelli

Thank you for being a great customer Cathy. The tin containers we previously used have been out of stock for some time so we had to find a comparable alternative. As you noted the new tin containers are a bit smaller and hold six fewer ounces. On the plus side this has helped us maintain the same pricing for the laundry soap even as we experience higher raw material costs due to inflation.

Love this laundry soap!

I was surprised by how small this container was and worried it wouldn't last long but we are just finishing the container after purchasing a year ago! I don't remember ever going a year and only buying laundry soap once. It smells great, our clothes are clean, and the small container hardly takes up any room in the laundry room. Highly recommend.

Fresh Scent

I like this product for the fresh scent, but I use a stain remover if I have any major stains. I bought for gifts plus use this myself. I am saddened this will not be in the Muscatine store that I found it in anymore.

GAME CHANGER!!

This laundry soap is hands down the best I have ever used! High quality clean ingredients, great for the planet, improves the longevity of your clothes, gentle on sensitive skin, and smells great! Not to mention it lasts 5 times as long as a traditional bottle of detergent or pods. I will never buy anything else again!

Average cleaning efficacy

I like the clean ingredients, but it did not clean as well as my prior "petrochemical based" detergent. I used 2 scoops as recommended. This did not remove all the dirt stains from my socks nor a few stains on my shirts. Clean ingredients are good, but I'm buying a detergent for its cleaning power - not very satisfied !

Eureka

I am a huge fan of young livings laundry detergent but I got tired of liquid laundry soap so my hunt began for laundry powder and this was my first find on the EWG app! I love the short ingredient list because it reassures the quality of the product. I knew going into it based off the other reviews that once laundry was complete my clothes will probably not smell like the detergent, but they don’t stink and that’s priority! I will be recommending this product and will be continuing on using this product!
