Our Laundry Starter Bundle includes our people- and planet-friendly Laundry Powder detergent and Soap Stick stain remover. Both products are made with non-toxic ingredients and eco-friendly packaging. They are just as effective as liquid detergents and stain removers but are ultra-concentrated, plastic-free, and preservative-free.
Please note that the Laundry Powder in this bundle is smaller than the standard size.
How to use Laundry Powder

  1. Scoop 1/2 tablespoon for HE washing machines or 1 tablespoon for standard washing machines.
  2. Add powder detergent directly to the drum before adding clothes.
  3. Wash as normal. Powder dissolves in hot or cold water and is safe for natural fibers.

How to use Soap Stick

  1. Wet the stained area of the fabric with warm water.
  2. Rub the soap stick vigorously on the stained area to work up a lather.
  3. Wash as normal as soon as possible after pre-treating the stain.

We use only what you need to clean your clothes:

  • Our Laundry Powder is made from a safe, effective 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. It’s packaged in plastic-free 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.
  • Our Soap Stick is an unscented vegetable soap stick made with organic coconut oil that easily lathers on wet fabric. It comes packaged in a plastic-free, recyclable paperboard box.

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.

Available in unscented, lavender, lemon, and lemon-lavender-clove. Note that only the Laundry Powder is scented, not the Soap Stick.

Bundle net wt. 10.5 oz. (298 g). Detergent net wt. 8.8 oz (250 g). Contains 32 HE (16 Standard) loads. Stick net wt. 1.7 oz (48 g).

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 using our Soap Stick. The sooner you can treat a stain, the better. Simply wet the fabric in the stained area with warm water. Rub the stain stick vigorously on the wet fabric, using friction to work up a rich lather on the stained area. Wash the garment as normal, after treating the stain. Avoid drying until the stain is gone, or else it might become more stubborn to treat.

Our Soap Stick is effective on most stains, including red wine, tomato sauce, juice, coffee, chocolate, dirt, grass, oil, grease, blood, sweat, and baby messes. For grease and oil stains, hot water can help lift the oil from the fabric.

The stick is safe on most fabrics, including lights, darks, colors, cotton, linen, wool, silk, and synthetics. An exception is pigment-dyed fabrics, which essentially stain fabric with a color that can be easily removed by the soap. Always defer to the care instructions on the product tag. We recommend testing any new or delicate fabrics and surfaces in an inconspicuous area before cleaning fully.

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. 

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.

Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is an odor neutralizer. (Laundry Powder only)

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'. (Laundry Powder only)

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. (Lavender and Lemon-Lavender-Clove scented Laundry Powder only)

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. (Lemon and Lemon-Lavender-Clove scented Laundry Powder only)

Organic Eugenia Caryophyllus Oil, or organic clove essential oil, is a scented oil derived from clove leaves. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a warm, spicy scent to our laundry powder. (Lemon-Lavender-Clove scented Laundry Powder only)

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.

How to Use Our Soap Stick

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Wet Fabric

Wet the stained fabric with warm water

The stain stick is most effective when used to pre-treat stains before washing. Wet the stained area or the whole garment with warm water.

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Rub with Soap Stick

Rub the stained area with the soap stick

The friction caused by rubbing a solid soap directly on the fabric helps to remove stains. Be sure to work up a good lather.

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Wash as Normal

Wash as normal soon after pre-treating

The sooner you are able to treat and wash the stain, the better the results. Do not put your clothing in the dryer until the stain is gone, or else it might become more stubborn to treat.

Non-Toxic Ingredients

Our non-toxic laundry detergent and stain remover stick are MADE SAFE® Certified, meaning they meet 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.

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

The unscented stain remover is made from vegetable soap without any added fragrances. It is free of bleach, chlorine, and other harsh chemicals commonly used in stain removers.

Eco-Friendly Packaging

Our eco-friendly laundry detergent and stain remover stick are concentrated and packaged to minimize waste and environmental impact. By making concentrated dry powders and solid soaps, 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 and solid soap sticks are lighter and more concentrated than liquid detergents and stain removers, making them more energy- and cost-effective to ship to you. They also take up less space in your home—our Laundry Powder can is only 6 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide and our Soap Stick comes in a tiny box that measures 3.6 inches by 2.5 inches by 1 inch.

Eco-Friendly Laundry Bundle - Plastic-Free

Plastic-Free Packaging

  • No hidden plastic liner, plastic scoop, or dissolvable plastic PVA pods or sheets inside
  • No PETE, HDPE, PVC, LDPE, PP, PS, or other plastics
  • Fully recyclable packaging: separate cardboard from metal to recycle, or check to see if local facilities can handle together

Concentrated Formulas

  • Less space and less waste than liquid alternatives

Great experience!

I've been using the all purpose spray cleaner for some time and wanted to try the laundry products. I'm very pleased with the products and that they are natural and do not contain harmful substances. They do a great job cleaning my clothes. I will definitely order again.

Great laundry soap, packaging needs help

The soap does the job! Even with tap-cold water, the soap does a great job. I appreciate that it is truly unscented.

The can and lid - very cute. But, the solid white tape hid the instructions, and for someone with big deal arthritis in my hands, I couldn’t open it. Thank goodness for neighbors 🌻.

Allison Disarufino
Truly clean!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well these products performed on whites and coloured clothes. And was thankful that the towels and sheets remain smelling fresh and clean, not “perfumy”!

Shirley Young
