A few weeks ago I helped my son get his jacket on only to find that it was covered in dirt.
I decided this was a good test for Norwex Ultra Power Plus (UPP) Laundry Detergent. I didn't pretreat this with anything, just tossed it in the washing machine with 1 tsp of UPP. Yes, just 1 teaspoon.
With an HE machine you need just 1 tsp. of detergent. That's a cost of just $0.08/load for detergent! There are not fillers, fragrance, or dyes in it so it is very gentle on sensitive skin.
Check out this post for pictures comparing UPP to a leading brand of "free" detergent.
