I had bought this laundry detergent because I wanted an all natural, plant based detergent. When I used this specific one I noticed the lovely scent of Lavender. It was soft, light and had such a fresh scent too it. Probably one of the nicest smelling detergents I had ever bought. When I poured a cup of detergent I noticed the liquid was very very thin. It didn't have much substance too it, almost as thin as water. Was not thick at all. So I did my load of laundry and noticed that a lot of my sons clothing was still stained. Even a couple of my shirts I had stains on them and they were still very noticeable. I normally don't have any problem getting stains out of clothing with using just detergent, these weren't tough stains, normal food, or light dirt. My clothes did have a wonderful scent too it but I would just think this is an average type of detergent good for non-soiled clothing. I bought at a steep prices of 15.99$ too much for a so so detergent. I will only buy again if it goes onsale and if I'm just using it on my linens.
