Guide Review - all® Oxi-Active Laundry Detergent - Laundry Product Review

The latest addition to Sun Product's all® laundry line is all® OxiActive. The formula combines the detergent cleaning of all with the power of oxygen-based bleach for stain removal and fabric brightening. A high-efficiency (he) detergent for use in front loaders; it can also be used in regular, top loading machines.

Listed ingredients include:

  • Cleaning agents: anionic and nonionic surfactant, enzymes
  • a href= "http://laundry.about.com/od/laundrybasics/g/watersofteners.htm">Water Softener: sodium citrate
  • Stablizer
  • Buffering agents
  • Perfume
  • a href= "http://laundry.about.com/od/laundrybasics/g/whitenersdef.htm">Brightening agent
  • Colorants
  • The detergent performs well on heavily soiled laundry and is gentle enough for delicate fabrics. I tested it on several different types of fabrics and stains. For a college-aged son's white undershirts that have been washed with anything and everything, they did come out looking whiter. I have been working in the red clay of my backyard and all of the soil washed away. It can also be used for pre-treating stains before washing. I feel it performs well in cold, warm and hot water. The detergent has a clean, fresh smell.

    all® Oxi-Active is available in four bottle sizes 50 ounces with a MSRP of $4.49 (16 cents per load); 100 ounces for $7.99 (14.2 cents per load); 150 ounces for $10.99 (13 cents per load); 172 ounces for $13.49(14 cents per load). It is available nationwide. The container has 25% or more post-consumer recycled plastic.

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