Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Clean rinsing. No perfumes or dyes. Safe for HE washers.
Cons:Difficult to find in my area. Carried online and in select healthy grocery stores.
The Bottom Line: Excellent laundry alternative for health conscious households. Works in HE washers.
Recently, I have committed to having less chemicals in my home. My skins was breaking out. I was tired after cleaning. I needed to make changes.

While shopping for natural items with which to make my own cleaning products, I stumbled upon Nellie's Laundry Soda at Sprouts in Mesa, AZ. The price was reasonable. It was $13 for 80 loads and it was eco-friendly. That's a good price, to be sure.
I put it in next laundry load and there was no less performance compared to the other detergents that I had used. The laundry smelled fresh without heavy perfumes, and the texture was clean. I also used the Nellie's Dryer Balls to prevent the need for fabric softener. I went through that first box in a month and needed to go far into town to buy another.
Before I did, my washer died and I replaced it with a front loader. I was so upset that I would not be able to use Nellie's anymore. I bought Tide HE and used it begrudgingly. Then my husband detoured to Sprouts on his way home from work and came home with Nellie's. And it had a big HE on the front of the box!
This product performs incredibly in my FL washer. Virtually no suds are visible. I use a teaspoon and nothing more. My clothes are so clean and so bright now. My dryer has two sets of dryer balls in it, and I have effectively eliminated a huge source of contact chemicals from my home.
Nellie's contains the following ingredients: all natural laundry soda, sodium silicate and coconut oil based detergents. It states on the box that it is "especially good for babies clothes and individuals with allergies or sensitive skin."
Tip: if you put a scoop of Nellie's in the soap dispenser of your carpet cleaner (mixed with warm water), you may be pleasantly surprised. I was able to get up very old stains. Let it sit a bit, and then rinse.
