Just when you thought washing your family’s underwear couldn’t get more exciting, Nellie’s made a Laundry Soda that’s truly perfect for every household. Doing loads of laundry never sounded so good!

Made with only four ingredients, Laundry Soda is a highly concentrated formula that dissolves quickly in cold or hot water. Most importantly, it rinses completely clear, leaving your skin and the environment as spotless as your clothes. So don’t worry – even your mother-in-law will approve!

Free from: SLS, SLES, gluten, phosphates, chlorine, fragrance, optical brighteners, and solid synthetics.

WHY POWDER? Liquid detergents are made up largely of water. At Nellie’s, we don’t think selling and moving water around the planet is a very good idea. The fact is, more cleaning power can be packed into a smaller space using powder. Learn more!

    Just started using this product and we love it!

  2. Sasha (verified owner)

    Great for sensitive skin. Lasts a long time making it a good value. One question, is it safe for handwashing?

  3. Cheryl Halden (verified owner)

    I love your products and have been buying them for years. When placing and order today I could not find the packages of the Laundry Soda (50 loads)? I usually order five or six packages an place the open package in the tin I received with my first order. I do not need any more tins

  4. Mary Gallegos (verified owner)

    I have been using Nellie’s for years and it by far the best soap I have ever used!

  5. Kathryn (verified owner)

    The clean that I get with this is by far superior to any commercial powder *and* liquid I’ve used before. The results when combined with the Oxygen Brightener are outstanding! I use two scoops of each per regular load, but I don’t have an HE washer.

  6. Mrs. Lou Obaytek (verified owner)

    I have been using Nellie’s Laundry Soda for a few months and I am very pleased with the results. I no longer need to buy detergent and fabric softener.

    I love Nellie’s – I discovered it during my cloth diapering days (7-8 years ago) and continue to use it

  8. Barbara KW (verified owner)

    An excellent stuff! I am using for more than 5 years already. Besides the healthy benefits it is the huge saving in long run.

    Hands down, the best detergent I’ve used. I live in Scotland, so Nellie’s is quite hard to come by, luckily I managed to find a couple of 100 load tins on eBay where shipping and taxes weren’t too pricey. I’ve been trailing Eco detergents for two years , both liquid and powder. Nellie’s out cleans everything, both Eco and mainstream , plus leaves clothing really soft. Coloured clothing is brighter , stripes pop and no noticeable fading of darks. I have a front loader so use one scoop for a large load and a half scoop for a small load . I tried using 1 teaspoon per full load , I thought this would be ok as European washers are smaller, while this worked ok for lightly soiled stuff , dirtier stuff wasn’t getting really clean. Once I started using a full scoop for a full load the results were astonishing, not only on everyday stuff but also on smelly gym kits and swimming gear. I love that all my laundry comes out stain free and smellin “clean” . I must say, if you’ve been using a mainstream detergent it may take a couple of washes to strip out your old detergent and for you to see the real benefit of a Nellie’s clean but stick with it! I do add an oxy bleach to my white washes but this is maybe not entirely necessary. I also use Nellie’s as a multi purpose cleaner. One scoop in a bucket of water for floors, paintwork, sinks, baths, tiles and counter tops., it even gets rid of the brown gunk on glass oven doors. I really can’t recommend this detergent highly enough. I know there have been some negative reviews on other sites , my conclusion is that it’s down to poor laundry habits and not the fault of Nellie’s. I just hope I can continue to get Nellie’s in the UK!!

  11. Elizabeth Thomas (verified owner)

    I’m in shock & AMAZEMENT with the quality of the Laundry Soda & Oxygen Brightener! I honestly can’t say enough on how WONDERFUL my clothes feel & look. I’ve never used such an amazing product & so grateful to have been told about Nellie’s products! Thank you ?

  12. Sheron Liss (verified owner)

    I have been using his product for several years and I over the results on whites, colored, towels etc.!!!! If I feel that it is needed I will add a small amount of Borax or oxiclean to my gardening clothes and everything comes out fresh and clean. I am not changing brands ever!!!!!

  13. Maryanne Zawlocki (verified owner)

    We stumbled upon Nellie’s Laundry Soda at the Wisconsin State Fair Last year. We took a chance and bought some. This is by far the BEST laundry “detergent” we have ever used! Clothes come out clean and FRESH! Even the underwear load! And I love knowing that this is environmentally safe. Alas, they weren’t at the State Fair this year, but we’re going to order it online.

  14. Alicia Kiehne Johnson (verified owner)

    I love this stuff, found at the Minnesota State Fair in 2016 and have been a loyal buyer since. Love the clean clothes and knowing they are being washed using natural ingredients and not full of chemicals of the larger brands. This is a great buy and their brightener is a wonder as well.

    Hi. I am from Dumaguete, Philippines. A friend from the US brought us a can of Nellies laundry soda. I just finished hand washing my clothes and I was amazed with the product. Unlike our usual detergent powders, the product is very gentle. This is the first time that my hands are free from irritation. I also have less water consumption and the washing time was cut by almost half. Product performance is really amazing. I shape this will be available in the Philippines anytime soon.

  16. Tara Brown

    I loved this laundry soap! It made my clothing clean and fresh. It was easy to use and I highly recommend! Thank you! 🙂

  17. Dawn McKee (verified owner)

    I purchased this at the MN state fair this year, and wow! I’ve been using it on my massage sheets and pretty sure it’s been removing left over oil residue that the other laundry detergents I’ve been using couldn’t get out! So glad I took a chance, I will definitely be purchasing more.

  18. Wendy Minar (verified owner)

    I like that you only use a small scoopful for a large load of laundry.It is Eco friendly and I only have to purchase maybe every one and a half years! Bravo ?

    Clean. perfume free, clothes

  20. Lynda N (verified owner)

    I love Nellie’s laundry soda. The clothes smell fresh. It doesn’t leave residue in our front load washer. And we didn’t have to buy a different laundry detergent for washing our grandson’s clothes. I love being able to buy the big container. I’m so glad I discovered Nellie’s some years ago ?

  21. John Crowley (verified owner)

    Been using Nellies for a couple of years now. A tremendously effective product. Nice that it has really no smell to it; just fresh and clean. Highly recommended. Will not switch to other products ever.

  22. kristy kaye

    I was in search of an inexpensive laundry detergent for dark colored clothing. Not only does this soda clean my darks without fading them, but it does a fabulous job with light colors and whites too. Love it! Its the only product I use now. Thanks for a great product!

  23. Dee Finley (verified owner)

    Finally!!! A laundry soap for my front loader washing machine that does not leave an odor in my clothes! I have numerous laundry soaps to no avail, the horrible ordor a big issue. No more with Nellies Natural.!!! Thank you so much! And….my clothes come out cleaner and brighter than ever. I do not even have to use fabric softener! Love, love, love Nellies Laundry soap in my front loading machine AND now my daughter is using in her top loader and will not go back to anything else!!! Bravo!!!!

    Also, I have never had this laundry soda ever fade my clothes in color. It is also color safe. Non-fading on fabrics. It’s just that gentle!

    We have been using Nellies laundry products about 15 years. We switched to Nellies when looking for a product which didn’t have ingredients which we were sensitive to. The product works very well, is good on the clothes and doesn’t irritate my husband’s psoriasis. Thank you for a great product!!

  28. Lyndsey (verified owner)

    My grandma gave me a baggie full of this to try. I have been using it and love it. I have a friend telling me it is not a detergent it is a water softener and it doesn’t clean clothes. Is this a detergent?

  29. Tishara (verified owner)

    As a Certified Massage Therapist with a family of 6, I wash a TON of laundry and I LOVE Nellie’s! I get 95% of stains out without pretreating which is pretty amazing with massage oils.
    I loved that I was not constantly buying detergent when I would purchase the 100 load canisters, so I am really excited to have the 1100 load bucket!!
    My front load washer has never gotten that funky smell and I truly believe it is because of Nellie’s.
    I have recommended it to all my family and friends!!

    Growing up my mother always used powdered Tide until the liquid became popular. So all my life I’ve always used Tide, but I’ve always had sensitive skin and eventually switched to All Free & Clear. I discovered Nellie’s on HSN and was really impressed. I decided to order a small kit (which included the laundry soda and 1 WOW stick) and I have been hooked ever since. I also use the Lamby dryer balls, and as a result, my clothes have never felt better! It was a little weird to me getting used to not using liquid unscented Downy fabric softener, but after I’ve gotten used to Nellie’s, I’ll never use anything else! My clothes no longer have that sticky feel (caused my residue from other detergents and softeners I assume) and feel soft. I have sinus problems and cannot tolerate fragrances and since Nellie’s is basically unscented, I love that too! I have also used Nellie’s in my carpet shampooer instead of traditional carpet shampooer solutions and have been impressed with that as well! My carpets are soft, and I don’t have to worry about my dog being on the carpet and coming in contact with God only knows what chemicals. Thank you Nellie!

    PS: My ONLY complaint with Nellie’s is I wish the WOW stick was in a different form of packaging. Something where it could be pushed up to use and with a cap or something.

    I live in America. I first found this like 4 years ago from an ace hardware store in town that recently has closed it’s doors. Desperate to find more of this product I made an online search. I didn’t wanted to run out of my laundry soda without knowing where next to buy it from. I can honestly say that my dirtiest clothes comes out incredible clean with a nice fresh cleaned clothes scent. My husband has a rare skin disorder called: Darier’s disease aka (DAR). My daughter also suffers from eczema. This detergent works for her too. My husband just can’t use all the other detergents on the market sold to us in local stores. He breaks out. This is one of the rare and few detergents he can use. One can of this laundry soda lasts anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Depends on if I’m washing for 2 or 3 people a year as my husband travels a lot around the globe for his job. When he is home more, then I use more of it. It’s safe for people with severe allergies, asthma and skin disorders. The powder is so fine but doesn’t kick up dust and irritate your nasal passages. Something I am very grateful for. I highly recommend this detergent. I have a new H.E. washer and dryer, this works great in it. It worked great on my 20 year old washer and dryer that I had before my husband surprised me with the new ones. This works on old machines and new machines which I think is just great. Making it a must have for any way. It’s gentle enough to be used on children and even babies. Truly happy with this detergent. I hope they never stop selling it for my husband & daughters sake. I can’t believe how inexpensive it is for the amount they give you. I save money in detergents over all over the course of a year. I just wish they would set up an store and sell their products through there as well. I can’t say enough good things about this detergent. Give it a try if you haven’t yet. Sensitive skin friendly!

    I’ve been using the laundry soda for a couple of years now. In fact, I finally broke down and purchased the 17.5 lb. tub. Since my sinus have become more and more sensitive over the years, I can’t tolerate the overwhelming heavy perfumed detergents the manfacturers are selling. I can’t remember how I stumbled onto Nellie’s products but I’m glad I did. I’ve been into holistic and natural/organic cleaning for decades and I really appreciated when I find people, companies who have basically the same mind set.

    Both Nellie’s Laundry Soda and Oxygen Brightener (2 scoops each) each of my laundry load(s) and I know my laundry is clean! There’s no leftover perfume smell or residue from the detergent.

    The only complaint I have and I have mentioned it when I wrote my review about Nellie’s WOW stick is the carrier the stick is held in. The paper is too flimsy and it rips. Until Nellie’s comes up with a sturdier holder for the WOW stick, I unfortunately will not be purchasing it in the future.

    Got this as part of the WOW mop bundle and I absolutely will be purchasing the bigger sized tub once it’s ran out. This cleans our clothes and everything else fantastically! I love that the ingredients are so simple and that it is fragrance free. It just cleans… as basic as that sounds, that’s really all I want. A thorough clean.
    I’ve always been hesitant to use powders too just because my experience was theyre chalky and can stick to the fabrics, but this one dilutes completely in the water and just leaves your items fresh. And you definitely save when you get the bigger sizes of this. Worth every penny!
