Wisk Deep Clean Power Blasts - About.com Laundry Product Review

Photo by MML

Wisk was introduced to U.S. households in 1956 as the first commercial liquid laundry detergent. Now the iconic detergent is available in the latest laundry innovation - single dose packets. Maybe this is a great new blast from the past!

Wisk Deep Clean PowerBlasts

Wisk Deep Clean PowerBlasts are a single dose laundry detergent product that is added directly to the washer before each load of laundry. The packets are safe for both high efficient and standard washers, septic systems and dissolve completely in all temperatures of water - including cold.

The packets are added directly to the drum of the washer. Never place in an automatic dispenser. Most loads require only one packet; however two packets are recommended for large or heavily soiled loads of laundry.

The listed ingredients for Wisk Deep Clean PowerBlasts are:

  • Cleaning agents (anionic and/or nonionic surfactants and enzymes)
  • Stabilizer
  • Perfume
  • Brightening Agent
  • Colorants

    The complete listing of product ingredients which are contained in a polyvinyl film packet are found on the Sun Products website:

  • C12-15 Pareth-7 (Surfactant)
  • Sodium Dodecylbenzenesulfonate (Surfactant)
  • Propylene glycol (Solvent)
  • Water (Solvent)
  • Coconut fatty acid salt (Defoamer)
  • Ethanolamine (pH Adjuster)
  • Protease (Enzyme)
  • Amylase (Enzyme)
  • Perfume
  • Disodium Distyrylbiphenyl Disulfonate (Brightening Agent)
  • Liquitent Blue HP (Dye)

    Wisk Deep Clean PowerBlasts are available in three sizes - 24 count, 48 count and 84 count at major retailers nationwide. While the packets dissolve completely leaving no waste, the outer plastic bag is not recyclable.

    As with all single-dose products, Wisk PowerBlasts should be kept away from children and pets who may perceive them as food or candy. Always handle the PowerBlasts with dry hands and store in a cool, dry place.

    Laundry Guide Recommendations

    I have a love/dislike affair with single-dose laundry products.

  • I love the ease of use.
  • I love the no waste benefit.
  • I love the smaller storage space needed.
  • I dislike the ability to pretreat stains.
  • I dislike the ability to adjust amount of detergent if I'm doing a small load.

    But when it comes right down to it, I love single-dose packets especially when they work well to clean clothes. Wisk Deep Clean PowerBlasts work really well.

    Wisk Deep Clean is a powerful, heavy duty detergent that works exceptionally well on stains, body oils and sweat. Wisk Deep Clean PowerBlasts bring that same cleaning power with the ease of a single dose packet.

    I recommend that these find a spot on your laundry shelf right next to the bottle of detergent that you can use for pretreating heavy stains!
