    Too concentrated!

    Pros

    Perfect clean
    Nice smell
    Economical
    Only needed quarter of the recommended dose for great results

    Cons

    Too concentrated for front loader.
    Needed seven rinse cycles to get rid of the soap powder.

    Recommend it?

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    Strong scent

    Pros

    Seems to wash very well. No need to use full recommended amount as it's very concentrated. Personally, if I was to use it again, I'd use half the recommended amount.

    Cons

    I am a bit sensitive to perfumy smells and this detergent is overpowering to me (even after an extra rinse and a further water only wash cycle!). So I only used it once.

    Recommend it?

    Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
