Guide Review - Arm and Hammer Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent - Product Review

Church & Dwight, Inc.'s, producer of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda since 1846, venture into the laundry detergent business has been quite successful. Baking soda is a known detergent booster - helping detergents perform more efficiently - and they put it to good use.

In 2006, Church & Dwight acquired Orange Glo International, the parent company of OxiClean. The addition of this oxygen-based bleach to Arm & Hammer detergent helps remove stains and acts as a whitener and brightener that is safe for all washable fabrics.

The latest addition to its laundry line is Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Power Gel. The gel formula is thicker than regular liquid detergent. This is particularly beneficial when pre-treating stains. The gel clings to the stain helping to concentrate performance on the spot. Ingredients include biodegradable surfacants (anionic and nonionic), enzymes, Arm & Hammer baking soda and perfume. The 55 oz. bottle has a suggested retal price of $4.97 and is designed to wash 31 loads using 1/3 cupful of detergent. This is for medium sized loads.

The gel performs well on heavily soiled laundry and is gentle on delicate fabrics. I feel it performs well in cold, warm and hot water. The detergent has a clean, fresh smell.

My only complaint is that measuring lines in the cap are impossible to see and I must be careful to not add too much.
