Our plastic-free laundry detergent refills are packaged in sturdy kraft paper bags with natural water-based lining and tin tie closures. They are a low-waste way to refill your reusable paper and steel Laundry Powder canisters or any container you have at home. Tear off and recycle the tin tie closure, and recycle or compost the paper bag when empty.

We use only what you need to clean your clothes: a simple formula of baking soda, washing soda, and vegetable soap made with organic coconut oil. Our scented varieties are made with organic essential oils—no mysterious “fragrance” blends that contain undisclosed ingredients.

All of our ingredients are MADE SAFE® Certified, Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free, and vegan. We list every ingredient, including scents, on the front label so you can see what’s in your detergent.

Available in unscented, lavender, lemonlemon-lavender clove, and peppermint.

Net wt. 35 oz. (992 g). Contains 128 HE (64 Standard) loads.

For a full load of laundry, we recommend using up to half a tablespoon in a high-efficiency (HE) washer and up to one tablespoon of Laundry Powder in a standard washer. The stainless steel scoop included measures one tablespoon. For large or extra dirty loads of laundry, double the amount of Laundry Powder.

Our Laundry Powder does not contain enzymes, so it is safe to use for washing natural protein-based fibers like wool and silk. It is also safe to use with all water temperatures and gentle enough for baby clothes and people with sensitive skin.

Many washing machines are designed for liquid detergent rather than powder detergent. We suggest adding laundry powder directly to the drum before adding the dirty clothes to the machine. This ensures the powder dissolves adequately.

Less is more. For loads that are less than full, you can decrease the amount of detergent you use. Though it may seem counterintuitive, too much detergent can make clothes feel unclean. Excess detergent can get caught in clothes and washing machines, resulting in build-up and causing unwanted odors and dinginess.

Pre-treat stains before washing with our Soap Stick Stain Remover. Simply wet the fabric and rub the soap stick onto the stained area, then wash as usual. The friction caused by rubbing a solid soap on the fabric adds to its effectiveness in removing stains. The sooner you are able to treat and wash the stain, the better the results. Please do not put your clothing in the dryer until the stain is gone, or else it might become more stubborn to treat.

This stain remover works great on difficult stains like wine, grease, grass, pasta sauce, and more. For grease stains, using hot water may be helpful in lifting the oil from the fabric. 

For loads that need a boost to remove stains and sweat odors, you can add our Oxygen Brightener Bleach Alternative to a wash alongside our Laundry Powder. This color-safe product brightens, whitens, and deodorizes your clothes by removing the dinginess and build-up that accumulates over time and reviving fabrics to their original vibrancy. We recommend adding up to a full tablespoon in a standard washer, and a half tablespoon in an HE washer.

Oxygen Brightener is not compatible with natural protein-based fibers, such as wool and silk, or with septic systems.

Ingredient disclosure and transparency is the cornerstone of our business. We list every ingredient on the front label of each product and here on our website. Our Ingredients page lists the technical name, chemical identification (CAS number), country of origin, and additional details for every ingredient we use.

You'll never see the word "fragrance" on our ingredient labels. This catch-all term allows companies to hide ingredients that are potentially harmful to the health of people and the planet. In the US, hundreds of ingredients in the "fragrance" family have never been tested for their impact. Every product is available in an unscented base formula. We also offer products scented with organic essential oils. 

Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is an odor neutralizer.

Sodium Carbonate, also known as washing soda or soda ash, is a pH adjuster. It raises the pH of the washing water, which results in more effective cleaning. For this reason, it's often referred to as a laundry 'booster'.

Our vegan, plant-based Vegetable Soap is made from organic coconut oil that is processed into soap, resulting in the following ingredients:

Sodium Cocoate is the chemical name of organic coconut oil that is saponified, or 'made into soap’. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.

Glycerin is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. We do not add any additional glycerin to our soap. 100% of the glycerin present is a byproduct of the soapmaking process and is vegan and cruelty-free.

Organic Cocos Nucifera, or organic coconut oil, is left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process, and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Our coconut soap has only a very small amount of excess oil, so it is designed to get tough jobs done without leaving oil behind on your clothes or in your washer.

Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve the lye and help evenly mix the oils and lye together for a complete saponification reaction. After saponification is complete, the water evaporates. There is only about 5% water in the finished soap, making it more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high percentage (about 60%) of water.

Organic Lavandula Hybrida Grosso, or organic lavender essential oil, is a scented oil derived from lavender flowers. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a fresh, floral scent to our laundry powder.

Organic Citrus Medica Limonum Peel Oil, or organic lemon essential oil, is a scented oil derived from lemon fruit. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a zesty, citrus scent to our laundry powder.

Organic Eugenia Caryophyllus Bud Oil, or organic clove essential oil, is a scented oil derived from clove buds. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a warm, spicy scent to our laundry powder.

Organic Mentha Piperita Leaf Oil, or organic peppermint essential oil, is a scented oil derived from peppermint leaves. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a festive, invigorating scent to our laundry powder.

Safer Ingredients, Listed on the Label

Our laundry detergent is MADE SAFE® Certified, meaning it meets the strictest ingredient screening requirement in the industry. MADE SAFE® certification means that a product has been Made With Safe Ingredients™ that are not known or suspected to harm human health, animals, aquatic life, or ecosystems.

This powder detergent is made from baking soda, washing soda, and vegetable soap. Scented varieties are made with organic essential oils, not synthetic fragrances.

Laundry Powder is non-toxic when used as directed. For additional safety information, see the Safety Data Sheets on our Ingredients page.

Plastic-Free, Eco-Friendly Packaging

Our eco-friendly laundry detergent is concentrated and packaged to minimize waste and environmental impact. By making a concentrated dry powder, we eliminate the need for added preservatives or unnecessary plastic, like hidden liners or PVA pods and sheets.

Our paper bag refills are designed to help you reuse our paper and steel Laundry Powder canisters. That means you only need to buy the canister once, reducing the amount of packaging produced.

Powdered detergent is lighter and more concentrated than liquid detergent, making it more energy- and cost-effective to ship to you. It also takes up less space in your home—our can is only 6 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide.

So loving the plastic jug free laundry room, and my clothes smell clean and fresh without over powering fragrance. Plus weeks later they don't smell stale because the soap actually removed much more than my laundry detergent sheets I had tried, so no leftovers to smell later. Excellent product

Laundry detergent

I love the meloria laundry detergent. I first purchased just the plain unscented and then I bought the lemon scented and mixed it with the unscented. What a money saver! I love it and will continue to purchase it instead of Purcel in the big plastic containers that cost a whole lot more. Good job Meloria!! I also have the Meloria stain stick. It works great! It removed blood from my grandsons sweatshirt after it was there for several days. My daughter was amazed!

Excellent!

Excellent laundry product with a wonderful light scent, or unscented if you prefer! No plastic bottles to deal with, just recycle the paper bag.

Meliora detergent refill- great detergent

Love this laundry powder. I really like the clove scent. The product is plastic free, comes in a recyclable bag. It cleans my clothes and leaves a nice subtle scent. I can’t wait to try the peppermint detergent.
