  1. Dawn Smith

    This powder is excellent. It cleans the laundry well and is also kind to the environment. It is not strong smelling like some laundry detergents. It is safe for my septic tank too. I use it to wash all types of fabric and everything comes out clean. I give it full marks.

  2. Susan Bawtree

    The best washing powder I’ve used. It cleans wonderfully and leaves everything super soft without the need of fabric conditioner

  3. Deborah Keech

    I’ve been using Mangle & Wringer products for 2-3 years and would never use anything else now. The laundry powder is brilliant and at the same time so gentle. I have really sensitive skin and it’s the first range of products that don’t cause me any skin irritations at all. Everything they make works exceptionally well and it’s great to know there are no nasty chemicals in any of the products.

  4. Ruth van Steenis

    Just finishing my first order of the laundry powder and re-ordering. It cleans so well, great with delicates, wool and general laundry. Natural with no nasties to irritate the skin or pollute.

  5. Val Hale

    This is a super washing powder. I was given it by a friend as I have extremely sensitive skin, and this is the only powder I’ve found that doesn’t cause any irritation whatever. I’m thrilled to have found it and will become a regular customer. Thank you.


    I have only just started using this product and it is seriously amazing.This laundry power cleans beautifully and contains no nasties ! Plus clothes so soft without any conditioner.
    I have eczema and dermatitis and this is the only product that I have found that does not cause any allergic reaction. Fabulous, you have simply made my year. I will definitely be buying more. Thank you so much. ?

    I was sceptical having tried other eco laundry products and been disappointed but living aboard a sailing boat I cannot buy a power that is harmful to the ocean so I gave this a go and WOW I’m so glad I did. It is absolutely fantastic. I am so pleased and very relieved to have finally found a product that does not harm the plant and actually works. I will be purchasing again.

    What can i say! The best find of my life! Finally a non scented washing powder that does a great job of removing every mark and stain on my families washing. Grass, mud food – you name it all gone. I love this washing powder and it’a another Mangle and Wringer product I’m totally addicted too.

    Received my set of products today. Packaging and delivery was superb and packed with a touch of class!! Felt like I was receiving a gift!!!
    This laundry powder is an absolute revelation…. l started using it by itself and is amazing. Don’t be fooled by the lack of foam and suds in your machine…. it washes perfectly and just smells old-school fresh!! Cannot wait to see if it makes a difference to my son’s skin!!
    I then went on to use it with the Natural Bleach for my two sons white school shirts and white sports socks…. both of which get DIRTY!! Oh my goodness…. normal wash cycle used but a massive difference in cleaning ability compared to conventional brands from supermarkets…… and to know it’s helping the environment is a HUGE bonus!! Didn’t need Bette’s soap in this occasion but I am sure I will as one boy plays football in a white kit!!! These products will smash those problems!!
    Will definitely

  12. Mrs S Watson

    I absolutely love this laundry powder. It does a a brilliant job of cleaning all our laundry, it doesn’t have an over-powering pungent smell and, best of all, none of us are suffering from our customary itching skin which we get with all the laundry products in the supermarket. I am so pleased to have come across Mangle and Wringer and am a life long convert. Thank you very much. p.s I also love that there is no plastic and no palm oil. A real plus.

  13. Mr Connolly

    I was sceptical about buying this laundry powder, as it doesn’t have nearly as many ingredients as the more commercial products and I didn’t think it would clean as well, but I was persuaded because I have sensitive skin and goodness me I’m glad I was. This powder is magnificent!! It cleans wonderfully well, it leaves everything soft and best of all my skin has stopped itching. I wish I’d found it years ago, but now I have found it I won’t be using anything else. Bravo Mangle and Wringer and thank you.

    This washing powder is brilliant. I’ve used it on both whites and coloured washing and the results are excellent, grease marks vanish, all stains dealt with on quite a low temperature. The added bonus for me is that it’s septic tank safe and since using this product I’ve had no problems from the septic tank.
