For several months I've been trying out different "clean" laundry detergents and someone suggested Allen's Naturally. I started out with a sample size (I love that option, by the way) and had great success with it so I jumped right in and went for the big container! It has a nice, subtle scent and it cleans amazingly well. I don't use it for cloth diapering and my family doesn't really have any sensitivities so I can't comment on that, but I can tell you that my this detergent cleans all my husband's filthy clothes! This detergent works as good or better than the big name detergents and doesn't cost tons more like other natural detergents. I also really like the limiter because my husband has a tendency to overuse detergent! The icing on the cake is that it's a Michigan-based business and I'm supporting my home state!

Featured Customer Review:
"Love your product, THANK YOU!!! We got the laundry detergent for our Fuzzi Bunz cloth diapers, but quickly learned it is excellent for all our laundry. It’s gentle on our skin and leaves clothes residue free. It even got out yellowing stains on our white duvet cover that even OxiClean and Wisk couldn’t remove. And when I did the math, even with shipping your detergent is cheaper than buying all off the shelf at Target since such a small amount can clean a whole load. We purchased a gallon at least nine months ago and average 2 to 3 loads a day and we still have detergent. Top it all off with being eco-friendly. You guys are amazing, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

Allen's Naturally began over 30 years ago with a mission to provide natural laundry detergent and cleaning products which contain no perfumes, no colors, and no residue. Our products are recommended for cloth diapers and MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity) and have been recognized by animal rights groups such as Peta, Humane Society, Antivivisection Society, Beauty Without Cruelty, and other animal rights groups for not testing on animals and not using animal ingredients.
We've been using Allen's for 11 years. We have allergies, so Allen's deep cleaning and clean rinsing are very important to us. I love that it leaves the laundry smelling clean and fresh, with no odors or scents. I hate the smell off the usual supermarket laundry products. And it's so economical. it really does do 512 loads of laundry.
I have used this for over 10 years everyday. We can't use anything else because it hurts our skin now. We love this detergent!
We have used Allen's Naturally Liquid Laundry Detergent on our Bum genius cloth diapers for nine months now, and we love it! Just one pump gets the job done -- the diapers are clean (we have not had any staining so far) and odorless (we have only had to strip the diapers once). I purchased it because I read it worked well for cloth diapers, but we like it so much that I now use it for all of our laundry (clothes, linens, etc), and it works fabulously -- everything comes out perfectly clean and odorless. Also, I have *extremely* sensitive skin, and have not experienced any irritation issues. We are still working through our first bottle (I definitely recommend purchasing the pump -- it'll make it last forever!), but we will definitely repurchase.
This product has been a boon for me since I have severe MCS. For a batch of new clothes, I wash them once then put them in a drum with 1 qt per 30 gallons and soak for 1 month, stirring weekly. After 4 rinse cycles I can then wear them. It works great in hard water, and is good for washing out fragrances and such as well. Best laundry product I've found in 30 years; I've been using it for about 20 years. I've tried many others and they just don't clean as well.
I've been using this detergent on cloth diapers since my oldest daughter (almost 6) was born. I started using it on our clothes around the same time because it made sense to use it on everything. Not only does it work great, I love that it's natural (I used to have eczema/skin sensitivities) and it lasts a really long time for our family of 4! I also use it on my massage linens for work, and it gets the oil out without leaving any residue. It's the BEST!
We have been using Allen's Naturally Liquid Laundry Detergent for six months so far and love it! We chose Allen's Naturally because it cleans our daughter's cloth diapers and is safe for our septic system. We also love that we can use the detergent for our clothes. Our laundry smells fresh and clean and feels soft. We are so glad we found Allen's Naturally and highly recommend it!
We started using Allen's Naturally nine years ago with my first child on his cloth diapers, and we have used it ever since for all of our laundry (including cloth diapers with two kids). I love it. It cleans beautifully, lasts a really long time (so worth the money) and is environmentally responsible. When our washer broke the other day and we took them to a wash and fold that used standard detergent, I was reminded what a difference it makes to have clothes that don't smell like perfume!
I started using Allen's while I was staying with my daughter in New York City. She had purchased for her daughter's diapers. I noticed that the diapers came clean and smelled fresh. I also liked the fact that it is environmentally safe and cost effective. So I decided to try it for my husband and myself. We love and our laundry couldn't be cleaner. it is great because we also have saved money because we can us much less detergent and lasts for 6 months or more depending on the amount of laundry we have. I will not go back to any other detergent.
I have been using Allen's Naturally Liquid Laundry Detergent for almost two years to wash cloth diapers. I chose it because our family has sensitive skin, and I wanted a product that didn't have harsh chemicals or unneeded additives. It is an incredible product! Our cloth diapers always come out looking and smelling like new, and we haven't had any issues with skin irritation. The pump feature is also a huge bonus. It's so nice to press down and get the exact amount I need. Thanks Allen's for this fabulous detergent!
