Country Save Laundry Detergent Review
08/22/2012 | By Gina | Simply Stacie | Used by permission
With two young boys in the house, I'm constantly doing laundry. When I'm out shopping I always look for good deals on laundry detergent and stocking up when I can. I'm not particularly loyal to one brand, but I will only buy detergents that are gentle enough for my boys' sensitive skin issues but tough enough to get out the stains that accumulate during the day. I'm willing to try new brands that I think can get the job done, so I was more than willing to give Country Save a try.
Country Save has been around since 1977 by Elmer Pearson (inventor of Elmer's Glue!). Based in Washington State, Country Save makes laundry detergent, bleach and dish detergents that are used by everyone from moms to soldiers in the field to fancy hotels and resorts. They pride themselves on their ultra-concentrated formula, which means you can clean more loads of laundry, and more dishes, with their products than you can with the same size package of the competition. Dye and scent-free, Country Save laundry detergent is gentle enough for sensitive skin individuals, including babies. Country Save products are available at select retailers in the US, as well as online.
I received an 80oz powdered laundry detergent for review. I was surprised to see that I could get 80 loads of laundry in my front-loading washer from this size box - I was skeptical at first! Then I saw the size of the scoop, and the instructions to only use half of the scoop in my HE machine. The ultra-concentrated formula means I don't have to use a lot for each load, and even though I knew that, it was still a shock to see how little I actually needed to use. I decided to wash a load of my everyday clothes to test out the product. I found that my clothes smelled clean and fresh after the wash and the detergent rinsed completely from my clothes and the washer itself. I'll continue to use the detergent for my clothes, my husband's clothes, and of course my kids' clothes. I'm not really a fan of powdered detergent, but a quick transfer to an air-tight storage container has me happy - and I'll be sure to try out their liquid version in the future. The 80oz powder box, suitable for both top and front loading machines, retails for $9.99.
