Non Bio Laundry Washing Powder, 1kg -Bio D
Easy - a swap to powder products can seem a little faffy again but it's worth it for the natural ingredients which are more environmentally friendly than other stain removers and does allow you to test what you need and adjust accordingly.
For me it washes well and leaves a light fresh scent to cleaned washing without being overpowering or non-existent.
Wash between 30° – 90°C, following garment label instructions.
