Best on the market

We've been using Bosito's for years snd won't use anything else. Fabulous for sensitive skin, getting clothes clean and it never ever leaves that caked white powder behind.
I've tried all the other brands and none compare. No wasteful huge scoops necessary with Bositos. So yes it lasts longer so it's value for money too.
And it's Australian made and owned.
It ticks every box. Show details ·  1

Clothes falling apart at seams after use

I usually use Cold Power but switched to Bosisto's as I wanted something "low tox". Since I made the switch, I've noticed that a number of my clothes have started coming out of the wash unravelling at the seams or with threads hanging off like the powder is causing the thread itself to dissolve. I've also noticed some of our darks have faded considerably. I really wanted to like this product but I feel like it is destroying our clothes, so I'll have to switch back to Cold Power. I did use one whole box (I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt), but have decided I will not repurchase. Show details

Ineffective cleaner and does not dissolve fully

Never again will I buy this product. The powder does not dissolve and forms huge clumps in the laundry powder dispenser of my front-loader. Show details

5 years of suffering with a face and eyelid rash - Never suspected it was being caused by this product

I use many Bosistos products and have used the washing powder on and off for the past 5 years. Over this time I developed a face rash that was limited to the sides of my face and eyelids (I am a side sleeper). Never did I suspect it could be my washing powder as it is supposedly safe on sensitive skin. I never considered that washing powder residue could get onto my sheets pillow slips and towels and cause a reaction.
After seeing dermatologists, rheumatologists and immunologists I have finally worked out that it was infact this product causing my problems. After a week of not using it and changing washing powder my rash has gone. Please list ingredients on box! This product gave me irritant contact dermatitis. Show details

STRIPS colour from clothes !!!

Am single elderly lady so, small light washing only. This product totally stripped colour from dark coloured shorts...leaving water in machine black. Same cothes previously washed many times before and hadn't lost colour. SENSITIVE ??? Hate to think what Bosito would do to SENSITIVE skin. Newly opened box, now in bin. Never use again. Show details

Was excellent not now

Had problems with this does not dissolve it sits in the powder dispenser in small chunks. I thought it was my machine I pulled the dispenser draw out of the machine & cleaned it, my machine was getting on in age, was it something to do with my tank water? No none of these after reading these reviews now it’s happening to other people. This was a really good product but something has been changed, it’s a waste of money! If you’re on tank water you don’t want to be washing your clothes twice because no powder has gone into your wash. Also who has the time to re wash what has been washed all over again? Show details

Great washing powder

Recently purchased Bositos washing powder and it is fantastic!! Great for my families sensitive skin, leaves a lovely mild eucalyptus scent on my clothes, cleans well and always dissolves well in my front loader (Apparently used to be an issue with this powder). Overall very happy, actually so happy that I purchased the 10kg tub on their website. Highly recommend  Show details ·  1

GREAT LAUNDRY POWDER FOR SENSITIVE NOSES

Been using this lately and it's great for my sensitive nose with no strong smells or after effects. I suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity and find this one leaves my washing without nasty chemical or fragrance odours! Also am asthmatic so perfumes are a huge 'no no' for me on anything. Show details

Is this even a laundry powder?

I don't know how this product is still on the supermarket shelves, it doesn't dissolve when added into washing machine, instead it seizes and clump into one hard lump. The clothes still smell like sweat after wash. Throwing the whole box away, never buy again.  Show details

Useless product

I had previously used this laundry powder and had no problems. However when I bought a new container it just clumped together in the dispenser tray. I used a hot wash and there was no difference. I wrote them an email on 29/06/20 and got a generic, auto-email back. I have heard nothing since, yet I see they are quick to respond to reviews here.  Show details

Cakes together, doesn't prevent sweat smells, need to use warm or hot wash

The powder cakes together, so to even get it to work I have to pre-mix with hot water or else it sets like a rock in the container. The clothes also still have quite a heavy sweat smell even though the powder contains eucalyptus. Would never buy this again. Show details

Calcifies, so many fillers

The powder calcifies. This means there are unnecessary fillers and not purely cleaning agents. Does not clean well, clothes still has bad smell after washing. I Will not buy again. Show details
