Comments about J.R. Watkins Powder Laundry Detergent 80 Loads, Fragrance Free, 5 lb:

I had used my friends detergent as mine arrived package broken with detergent all over my order. Customer service handled my issue quite well and I was pleased.
Anyway, before deciding on a second order, I tried some of my friend's detergent (she too was sensitive and had problems with this product so she gave me her detergent). I used it on several loads and even washing in hot water and after TRIPLE RINSING , white powder crystals were left behind on clothes--even this cotton linens--that were again triple rinsed. I had overcome the issue of powder residue left behind on the clothes. I had taken the amount of detergent needed for the load and had placed the amount in a large glass with hot water. I stirred the solution and then allowed to mixture to sit at least one hour (mostly 3 hours). I washed this way--no more powder residue--great! But what remained was still of issue: I itched like CRAZY after using this detergent and noticed holes on my brand new cotton clothes. NO THANK YOU!

      I like Watkins detergent because it works great on laundry, it is concentrated, and environmentally friendly. I have no complaints.

          Felt I needed to counter the bad review. I was looking for an environmentally-friendly laundry detergent so I tried this. I do need to stain treat garments & sometimes use a laundry booster or bleach, but I need those same products for brands like Tide when something is heavily soiled. I like Watkins for everyday items--towels, bed linens, cotton clothing, etc. I also noticed that with some unscented laundry products, I missed the "clean" scent. I don't with Watkins.

          Don't waste your money

          By Joanna

          from Los Angeles, CA

          Comments about J.R. Watkins Powder Laundry Detergent 80 Loads, Fragrance Free, 5 lb:

          I wanted so badly for this laundry detergent to be good because I loved the idea of concentrated, unscented and environmentally friendly cleaning but it simply doesn't work. I had to rewash a load of lightly soiled laundry three times and the clothes were still dingy. Ultimately, I threw the box away because I didn't want to waste anymore water and went back to Tide or All unscented.
