I have recently been using some new washing tablets to do our laundry. Simply sent me some Pure Allergen and Fragrance Free Non-Bio Powder Tablets* and Sensitive Non-Bio Soluble Powder Tablets* to see what I thought of them.
Simply washing tablets have been dermatologically and clinically tested and are approved by the Vegan Society. They have also been awarded the European Eco-Label. They are made here in the UK, in Yorkshire.
The tablets are designed to go into the drawer of your washing machine and dissolve, I must say I did find it easier to just put a tablet in rather than measure my usual liquid but the occasional one didn’t fully dissolve and left residue with some of the packaging in the drawer. However, these were far and few between and didn’t effect the wash quality of the clothes.
The Simply washing tablets are perfect for people with sensitive skin, eczema sufferers and babies. The ingredients are all bio-degradable, non-bio and phospate free. Both washing tablets left my clothes feeling soft without the need to add fabric conditioner into the wash, clean and fresh. The only difference I could tell between the tablets is that the sensitive non-bio tablets have a subtle fragrance, it is a nice fragrance though, not an overwhelming synthetic smell you can get with some other brands.
The tablets are available from Sainsburys at £4.50 for 18 tablets or from Amazon* in larger packs of 48, 54, 100 and 200 from £14.58 x
