Shotz - great product at a great price

Pros

I use the top loader in warm water and it's been the best and most economical washing powder I've ever used. We don't have extra dirty clothes so I don't know about sports gear etc but for your 'run of the mill' wash, it's all I'll ever need. I buy the large box - $20 and it lasts for a couple of months.

Cons

No downsides.

Recommend it?
