See full ingredient information below.

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 non-toxic 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.

Our plastic-free laundry detergent is packaged in a cardboard and steel canister and comes with a stainless steel scoop. The canister is designed to be reused with our low-waste Laundry Powder refill bags and is fully recyclable.

Available in unscented, lavender, lemon, and lemon-lavender clove.

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. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirt. We do not add any additional glycerin to our soap. 100% of the glycerin present is a byproduct of the soapmaking process, 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.

How to Use Our Laundry Powder

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Measure

Measure for your machine

Use 1/2 tablespoon for HE washers and 1 tablespoon for standard washers. The stainless steel scoop included measures 1 tablespoon.

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Add to Washer

Add powder directly to the washer drum

Laundry Powder dissolves in water. For best results, place directly in the drum beneath clothes, not in the dispensing drawer.

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Wash as Normal

Wash as normal

Once dissolved, our Laundry Powder works just like liquid detergent. It’s safe for all fabrics and water temperatures.

Non-Toxic Ingredients

Our non-toxic laundry detergent is MADE SAFE® Certified, meaning it meets the strictest ingredient screening requirement in the industry. Our MADE SAFE® certification literally 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.

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 cardboard and steel canister is designed to be reused with our low-waste Laundry Powder Refill bags. 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.

  • Fully recyclable packaging
