Why Powder?

Posted on

When chatting about our best-selling Laundry and Dishwasher products, we get one question more than any other, Why Powder?


There are many reasons why Nellie's Laundry and Dishwasher products are produced as powders and not liquids.  


Laundry Soda
1 - Traditional liquid detergents are made up largely of water and we don’t think shipping unnecessary water around the world is a good idea!


2 - The fact is, that more cleaning power can be packed into powder


3 - Nellie’s is more concentrated than other detergents, so a little goes a long way! 


Most conventional powder detergents contain suds-producing fillers like SLS and SLES, that are harmful to your HE machine. Nellie’s powders on the other hand are low sudsing - so they are even safe to use in your high-efficiency appliances! 


We take the bad stuff out, not put it in!

 Nellie’s rinses clear, leaving nothing behind. We don’t use perfumes, optical brighteners, or solid synthetics. Watch our TikTok demonstration video here!



Tips to maximize your Nellie’s powders and tins:

Store in a cool, dry space and keep sealed tight

Use as directed. Just one small scoop (one tablespoon) is all you need for a regular-sized laundry or dishwasher load

When your tin is empty, consider reusing it by filling it with Nellie’s Bulk powder or repurposing it as a storage container or planter 


We are always looking at ways to reduce waste and create plastic-free packaging.  There have been bumps along the way, but we are proud of how far we have come.  Most recently, we removed the plastic bag from inside our tins! This was an accomplishment we feel great about.
