6 Eco-Friendly Detergents Worth Switching To

6 Eco-Friendly Detergents Worth Switching To
  • Opening Intro -

    When it comes to washing your clothes, you may think that any store-bought laundry detergent will do the trick.

    But the truth is that not all detergents are as clean as you think.


Most detergents are made up of dyes, perfumes and chemicals that are not only harmful for your health, but are detrimental to the environment.

Thankfully, in recent years, the spotlight has been shone on the negative impacts of traditional detergents. A lot of brands are cleaning up their act, and a few new brands have come on the scene as an eco-friendly solution.

So whether you’re looking to adopt more eco-friendly practices in the home, or whether you’re going to ask your cleaner to do it for you, we’ve rounded up the best of the best to provide you with 6 eco-friendly cleaners that are worth switching to.

The Dirt Company

The Dirt Company stepped on the cleaning scene in 2016 after realizing that the household cleaning products they were filling their homes with were full of harsh, irritating chemicals and used excess packaging.

They started creating formulas, exploring packaging options, building websites, washing clothes, doing business plans, designing and washing more clothes, until they were finally satisfied.

The result is their Australian-made Dirt Laundry Detergent; a high performing-laundry concentrate that’s great on your clothes, skin, planet and hip-pocket. When you purchase their products, they also donate 50% of their profits to clean up plastics from the ocean!


Ecostore started from Malcolm and Melanie Rand’s eco-village home in New Zealand in 1993. The couple had been using sustainable and organic gardening practices but realized they were still using too many toxic cleaning products when it came to cleaning and body care. As a result, ecostore was born!

Their ultra-concentrated laundry liquid is a gentle and effective formulation made from plant-based ingredients. It’s free from the nasties like optical brighteners, phosphates and synthetic fragrances, making it the perfect choice for those who struggle with sensitive skin. The best thing is that you can grab it on your next trip to the supermarket, because it’s stocked in all Woolworths and Coles stores Australia wide.


Resparkle created their 100% plant-powered products to transform everyday choices, like washing the laundry, into victories worth celebrating. Their waste-free, toxin-free products enable their customers to be a part of the solution of creating a cleaner planet. Their laundry powder contains green tea, grapefruit and lemon extract for a refreshing clean.

It’s also certified organic, vegan and cruelty free, and contains 50 washes’ worth in each pack. And it includes an active probiotic that helps clean waterways, meaning you’re doing the environment a favor!

That Red House Organic Soapberries

Sustainably grown in Nepal, That Red House Organic Soapberries were one family’s answer to a more eco-friendly wash. The dried shell of the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree is exceptionally high in ‘saponin’ which is nature’s soap. The certified organic dried berries are reusable, hypoallergenic, antibacterial and anti-fungal, and thoroughly clean your clothes naturally.

Each purchase of soapberries comes with a complimentary wash bag which houses the berries in the machine. And if you like a bit of fragrance, you can add 4-5 drops of your favorite essential oil to each wash.

Abode Laundry Liquid Zero Sensitive

If you or someone in your family has sensitive skin, then this is the product for you. The Abode Laundry Liquid, Sensitive is specifically formulated for people with sensitive skin, and is free from nasty chemicals, enzymes, optical brighteners and fragrances of any kind. The biodegradable detergent provides a squeaky-clean wash without the environmental hazards that come with traditional cleaners!

Little Innoscents Eco Laundry Liquid

If you have little ones, or if you’re expecting a little one, it might be time to consider a more suitable laundry detergent.

It incorporates a unique blend of plant-based ingredients, including Australian Eucalyptus, Natural Cherry and Coconut extracts, which means it provides an effective (and lovely smelling) clean, especially for those with sensitive skins. The detergent is suitable for all temperature washes, and can be used in warm water to soak or hand wash tough stains.

That’s the round up of our favorite eco-friendly detergents! We hope this information helps you make a more informed choice when it comes to making the switch to eco products. You can use them knowing you’re looking after your family’s health and caring for the environment.
