Our Entire Laundry Collection is 100% Plastic Free
“Meliora means better” isn’t just a line we use. It’s also a goal - to strive to be better today than we were yesterday. We’ve always had a single-use plastic-free laundry collection, but the goal to become 100% plastic-free has been on the board for a long time. Once we identified a supplier who met our criteria for also being people- and planet-friendly, we were thrilled to be able to make this change.
I have really sensitive skin and struggle with detergents resulting in rashes (especially with athletic clothes). As long as I don’t accidentally use too much, this stuff never bothers my skin. Also, this never leaves my running clothes smelling gross, or like the scent is “covered up”. This product is a workhorse and lasts forever. I’ve used it now for about 3 years.
I’ve been using the brightened for years and loved it so am trying the detergent too
It says to put in the washer but it doesn’t seem to dissolve. Am I doing something wrong?
Do you put the powder directly on the clothes inside the drum of the machine? Is it advised to not put the powder in the dispenser? And can you use the laundry soap and brightener together?
You can put the Laundry Powder directly in the drum with your clothes without any issues. You may also use the dispensing drawer, if the drawer is ok to use with powdered products. We suggest checking with your manufacturer on this step.
Yes, it is perfectly okay to mix Laundry Powder and Oxygen Brightener together. In fact, some laundry powders are formulated with the same ingredients premixed. We like to give customers the option to use or skip the Oxygen Brightener as it is not always necessary. The Oxygen Brightener alone will not not clean your clothes, but is meant as a booster to add with the laundry powder.
I have recently moved all of my household products to create as much of a toxin-free home as possible and I am thrilled to have found this company. This detergent gets the job done, my clothes are soft, they come out just as clean as they did when I used big brand detergents, and I have peace now knowing that my family, pets and I are not being slowly poisoned with fragrances and hidden toxic chemicals. This is the cleanest brand I have found and I am thoroughly impressed with the quality, packaging and the fact that they are plastic free. I will be purchasing the oxygen booster with my next order as well to give it a shot!
We came across this brand when looking for a laundry detergent that avoided plastic and harsh chemicals and was good for cloth diapers. I wasn't familiar with laundry powder at the time, but I did my research, bought a few different brands that ticked those boxes and tried them out at home.
Meliora was the winner for us and we've been using them exclusively for about 2 years. We like the simplicity of Meliora's ingredients and especially enjoyed getting a metal spoon in the tin instead of a plastic scoop. A nice touch. I'm still using the original tin and buying the refill bags
Environmental Working Group gives them A's across the board which is great.
We use unscented for baby. This works great on our cloth diapers. Every so often we add a scoop of Meliora's oxygen brightener too which also works great!
Thanks so much for your glowing review, David. Clean cloth diapers for the win!
