Misleading information from Bosistos
I recently inquired of Bosistos customer service if the Bosistos sensitive laundry liquid contained any coconut products as my skin is allergic to coconut. I received a response from Daniel stating "None of our products contain coconut or coconut derivatives" I then read in a product review statement response from Bosistos " the new formula is very similar except for swapping out the palm based surfactant with a more Eco friendly coconut based alternative" Quite obviously your customer review staff have no idea what they are talking about or were deliberately misleading.
Purchased in July 2020 for A$12.00.
Love this product.
I have been using it for over a year now.
I have a front loader and sensitive skin.
I’m my work cloths are black and they come out great. Just wish it got rid of the cat Hair ;-)
I have found that it does foam more with a large load eg bed sheets, but have halved the amount and do another rinse cycle at the end. I also add a bit of Bosisto’s eucalyptus oil And lavender oil into the final rinse. Love how it make my sheets smell so fresh.
I would not use anything else.
Bonus it’s Australian owned and made :-)
I have used Bosistos product for more than 20 years. However the new formula laundry liquid sensitive is very disappointing. It's runny and failed miserably on sweaty, grubby clothes. Peww!
Helped some asthma issues and dermatitis
We were finding pretty much all the perfumed products were triggering my husbands asthma and I stumbled across this in Woollies. Straight away thought heck yes since I already used Bosistos eucalyptus oil and their spray for general cleaning. We love it, it cleans well, and my youngest son who had issues with skin rashes on his legs even after stopping body wash/soap use no longer does. Never thought it could be whatever the laundry soap left behind.
too much foam - bad for front loader
Whilst this is OK for regular clothes, when I tried to wash sheets and pillow cases it caused waaay too much foam. Overflowed the machine. I had already reduced the amount to half the recommended dose. Im not sure why this happens with cotton sheets but not other items. (No, i didn't over fill the machine... the first time it happened it was a half load...and i thought maybe it needed a full load).
I actually liked the liquid as it is meant to help with dust mite allergy but its going to destroy my front loader washing machine. :(

One gets what one pays for, and this is quality
This was on special at Woolworths for $6.90 so having used Bosistos' laudry powder, I decided to bring it home. My wife was pleased with the results. Clothes emerged clean from our top loading Simpson brand washing machine.
My impression of this company's products is that quality seems to be the focus. It's less well known than some of the multinationals but Woolies probably did a bit of research and decided, as Australia's leading supermarket, that it had to be seen selling some good alternatives.
I found this product on the top shelf...of a suburban Woolies in Melbourne so make sure your eyes move up and down, as Bosistos probably don't pay the supermarkets as much as some competitors do as they may not have a huge marketing budget. Nonetheless it's encouraging that Woolworths has been promoting this manufacturer in a mini catalogue delivered to my home. 'Australian owned' isn't always a guarantee of quality - look at Qantas! - but in Bosisto's case it seems to be.

Not good in my high efficiency front loader
I have a high efficiency front loader. I recently switched to Bosistos Sensitive Laundry Liquid after reading all the good reviews here. I have been quite happy with it. I'm part way through my third bottle but will unfortunately have to stop using it. While washing a blanket the suds became so excessive that the machine stopped working and required a service call.
Purchased in April 2019.
Got an allergy (or not)? Use this
My wife has a case of dust allergy. Knowing eucalyptus is great to battle this we tried this liquid in our front washer. What a refreshing product for the clothes that work. My tip is to use half the recommended at least for front loaders as it suds up well. It not only dies a great job but economics. Raven more so now as I found bosito have released the 1litre bottle for same price as 500ml. The only suggestion would be a cap design that doubles as a measure but no itching or sneezing a small price to pay
It's good for anti-bacteria, but not as a cleaner.
I've found that this detergent is very effective at killing bacteria and has a pleasant, iconic eucalyptus scent. So this meant I can run washes cooler, not damage clothes and at the same time have no bacteria (which cause funky smells) build-up in the washing machine. In the past I'd run the wash at over 60C to avoid bacteria & smells. So this is definitely a plus.
However, boiling down what a detergent should do, which is clean clothes - this product doesn't do that. Which sucks so much, because it had me for everything else! Shirts get sta...
smells great but will not rinse clean
I bought this wash a few weeks ago as my partner and son both have sensitive skin. I was using Earth Choice before which is so much cheaper but I like the Bosisto brand and the benefits like "kills dust mites" won me over, not to mention boys could always smell better. I don't really have a problem with stains generally and the washing does smell clean, but the bubbles just wont wash out of my machine. I put 6 rinses on my son's sheets the other day even though I'd used less than a quarter of the specified amount, and there were still bubbles in the window of my front loader (which I clean regularly). Won't be buying this product again.
Excellent senstive skin and stain removal
Started using this liquid as I was unable to get the Ultra Concentrate Powder and was very impressed. It is good for my sons sensitive eczema prone skin, no reaction. When I have stubborn stains I just rub a little direct on the stain and it has removed chocolate, tomato sauce and even water paint. Very impressed. Love using it for hand washing as I find harsh chemicals make my hands crack this is very gentle on my hands but effective cleaning the washing.
I have got a bositos pack there and found it to suitable as it cleans the clothes quite well and has no nasty smells and doesn't affect my dermatitis skin / I totally recommend this product to anyone who needs to wash their clothes especially if they have sensitive skin though I would dare say it would work better in warmer water in the washing machine
Better than most other laundry products
I have used this laundry liquid for several years. It is efficient, economical and does not leave clothes smelling of artificial fragrance. It is gentle on clothes and the environment. I highly recommend using this product, especially as it is sensitive for we who suffer from allergies. Unfortunately I am finding it difficult to buy as my local supermarket no longer stocks this brand. I am not happy!
Smells good but doesn't clean that well
Great idea... I was keen on a natural product that smelled good. But even the silliest of things, like deodorant, were still on my clothes after washing, and my clothes smelled like the detergent I had used to wash the clothes before! Unfortunately I'll have to give this one a miss.
