    Ecostore Laundry Liquid

    Pros

    +++ Can refill the plastic containers at some outlets.
    +++ We use this to replace Persil Sensitive powder/liquid in a top loader and got similar price per wash and cleaning power.
    ++ No scent that I have noticed.
    ++ No skin or respiratory reactions.

    Cons

    -- Room for improvement in cleaning power but I'm happy to trade this off against the other benefits.
    - Depending on where you buy it, the price per wash can be higher.
