Another + 1 for soapnuts!://www.soapnuts.co.uk/
Just discovered them in the Autumn at the West Midlands Vegan Fair. They are cheap, eco-friendly, organic and obviously vegan!

All co-op own brand cleaning and laundry products (from what I could see in my shop today) are labelled as having no animal ingredients, and are BUAV approved. If you'd prefer something organic and natural though, have you used Dr.Bronner's liquid soaps? You can dilute them to use as laundry detergent, floor cleaner etc. and they're pretty effective.


Yes! I have started using their ecological softener and I quite like it so far :D

I've also started using the lint balls from the same people who make the eco balls to try and collect some of the tons of cat hair that seems to always be on my clothes, they seem quite good, but I now only have 2 balls rather than 3 because one of the damn kittens has stolen one and stashed it somewhere!


Agreed, I've been using their eco detergent and softener, and am impressed.

I'll give those lint balls a go too, I'm forever trying to get pet hair off my clothes!

I use soapnuts sometimes but find they only really work for light soiling and they're not so great for serious muck.

At the moment I buy Suma or Faith in Nature laundry liquid. Generally, I reckon anything with the Vegan Society and BUAV standard labels is probably okay :)

The balls aren't working well on anything that is heavily soiled which is most of my clothes because I am a klutz and I own a big muddy dog. It takes out smells no problem just not stains. I've been trying to get some Simply but anytime I go to do my order the supermarket are out of it.
