Bosistos washing powder is wonderful for hand washing.
Bosisto's powder is useful for to washing smalls in the bath or bucket. This product is good for sensitive skin. The subtle smell of their powder is pleasant. This washing powder is more concentrated than most powders.
I would not use this powder for my machine, as I have heard from a friend that her washing machine repairer told her not to use powder, as it can wreck the washing machine.
I think that Bosistos washing powder is an Australian, ethical and quality washing product.

After having tests for allergens it come back with very bad dust mite allergy . This product range is the best . I even use the oil drops Into my body wash which helps my skin feel fresh and not itchy . .it has helped me very much .
Something has changed in the detergent recipe
Recently each scoop of bosistos is leaving a hard crusty blob in the auto dispenser so i have had to take to trying to dissolve it first. it wont dissolve well and is filled with a white powder that resists. It has been turning my voile cloth that i use to strain my tinctures - black? What is causing this? I love bosistos and have used it for many years. Thank you

I am allergic to many washing powders and I found the Bosistos to be fine for sensitive skin, but also the eucalyptus is really good for getting out stains and such as well as being a disinfectant.
This is my number 1 washing powder. Although I don't always buy it because I have housemates who I share products with so I prefer to buy whatever Hypoallergenic powder is on sale when I shop.
Doesn't leave a eucalyptus smell, just clean.
Great for eczema sufferers
I bought this on the recommendations of this forum. I get eczema on various parts of my body and this washing powder definitely helps with lessening my itching due to my clothes being pretty much chemical free. Great product and I'll continue buying it.

What a revelation
I have always used well know brand recommended by washing machine manufacturer and had become increasingly dissatisfied with the clogging of my machine. Wow Bosisto was on special so I tried it. What a revelation. No more clogged up left over powder in dispenser, no more scratchy feel to my sheets and clothes, no more sneezing and now clothes come out clean first time. Even my husbands dirty overalls now don’t need to be on the long cycle just short cycle now. Reading the product statement it said Australian made AND Owned. Great news. Th...en it said no fillers yes that’s why it fits neatly in my cupboard(package smaller) and eco friendly. I went on line and purchased a bulk lot which saved me me money and time as I did find the product a little expensive when buying it not on special. I am a convert for life now.
Keeps my clothes clean and it's non irritating
I've had many challenges trying to find a washing powder that cleans well, is reasonably priced and doesn't irritate my skin or sinuses. Hooray for Bosisto's! It meets all of my criteria and it's by far the best washing powder I've ever used. I wash all my clothes (the ones that can go in the machine), including woollens using this product and it does a great job every time. Of course stains still need treatment or soaking. I usually buy it in Woolworths when it's on special but if you subscribe to Bosisto's newsletter they also have some good ...deals and useful cleaning tips. They don't bombard your inbox with their emails. The eucalyptus scent is pleasant without being overpowering which is a bonus as I am very sensitive to fragrances. This product is excellent.
All Australian washing powder!!
Please. Take time to hunt this product down. Bosisto's Ecalyptus Washing Powder. It is brilliant!! Dead set!! But annoyingly they don't do anything to promote themselves. I have rung them up and tried to suggest that they do more marketing, but nothing happens. I have asked store managers in supermarkets to put it back on their shelves.
No, get nothing from Bosisto's at all, just the pleasure of buying and using it. The company is all Australian (made and owned) since 1852!
The powder is all natural and is very low allergy.
You might ne...ed to check a few different supermarkets in your area to see if it is stocked. But be diligent in your search because, if they do have it, Bosisto's will be given only one box width of space on the shelves. At around $10 per kg box, it is great value.... Much cheaper than the $5 boxes imported from overseas. Because when you buy Bosisto's, you buy excellent quality, very safe on skin - low allergy and low chemical product... AND you help keep some of our Aussie heritage alive. Please help me to keep this Aussie silent legend alive.
So fresh! So clean!
I made the switch to Bosisto's Laundry Powder a couple of months ago, and could not be happier!
We have a grey-water system that directs to absorption trenches outside, so we have to be very careful about what household products are used and what goes down the drain. After not having much success with a couple of other eco-friendly laundry products, I gave Bosisto's a whirl after reading all the great reviews... and they're true!
It is super gentle on clothes, but they also come out so clean! And the eucalyptus scent is to die for. What is this witchcraft?
Ticks every box - outstanding results
I tried this laundry powder because I was looking for something that would get the stains out of my boys’ clothes but would be gentle enough to use on my baby’s clothes too. Well this product actually delivers! No longer do I have to buy two different detergents for baby’s clothes and for everyone else. No longer do I have to a-bomb the laundry with the better-known highly perfumed brands to get the laundry clean and irritate my sinuses with the smell. This powder smells very subtly fresh, rinses out well without leaving residue on the clothes ...and most importantly cleans everything consistently well. Also very happy to be reducing nasty chemicals in our home with a cruelty free Australian product. Just tried the bathroom spray and again very impressed. I never write reviews but this product really does tick all the boxes and people should know about it. Purchased at Woolworths but this week grabbed three kilos on special at Coles.
Not bad at all
I bought the bositos clothes washing powder as I sometimes buy and use the liquid variant. I got the pack open and found a resealable bag so opened it up put the powder in with the clothes though, didn't remember to look inside for suds action. Got the clothes out then smelled the clothes like I usually do when trying a different laundry and was good - including the wearing of the clothes however, I didn't try on dirty clothes
Great for / from us folks that have sensitive skin. Also for removing stains from workwear. Leaves a pleasant (not too 'soapy') smell to your wash. Consider worth the dollars. (We're pensioners now so watch out for (regular) specials at Woolworths. +we're buying Aussie
Can’t go wrong
I have been using this product for over a year! It’s fabulous!! My partner is a heavy diesel mechanic and his work clothes are covered in grease, diesel and who knows what else!!! I was his clothes on a hot setting and use 2 scoops of this powder and it cleans like no other washing powder. Washing machine doesn’t have any leftover gunk that I need to clean. It’s also working wonderfully with my cloth nappies.
I use all of bosisto products and have throw out all the other chemicals. Finally a product that works and is Aussie.
These must be the best laundry products available in Australia
Felton Grimwade's Bosisto range must be the best laundry products available in Australia.
My wife and I have had excellent results from the Eucofresh laundry powder. It delivers. I bought it from Woolworths.
Unfortunately Woolworths no longer appear to stock the eucalyptus stain remover with applicator, but I'll hunt around and see if IGA (or if I must go there, downmarket Coles) stocks it.
This is an example of a quality Australian owned company that hasn't been bought out by the multinationals such as Unilever, Johnson and Johnson or Proctor and Gamble, so where I can I'll be continuing to buy these Bosisto products.
NEVER BUY BOSISTO'S AGAIN
Recently I bought Bosisto's laundry powder to try; Only to find out when l placed it in the soap dispenser it turned into hard claggy particles. I had to remove it and flush the soap dispenser with hot water. Very disappointed with this product. Never buying it again. the company should be reported for false advertising.
Never buy OMO again!
Finding this wonderful Australian product has changed my laundry habits (with this product and many others by Bosisto) forever. No more of that (and you won't know that it's there until you stop using it!) overpowering "pong" from OMO/Cold Power and the like. Fresh eucalyptus ... just fresh really ... better still if you order online (and there are so many products you want - handwash, spray'n wipe, eucalyptus oil, pre-wash stain remover etc.,) they deliver to your door (free if you reach the minimum threshold).

Questions & Answers
Is this Laundry Powder safe for Septic Systems?
Yes, it's suitable for use in septic systems.
Kind Regards, Bosisto's.
I really like so much about your washing powder. However, Im looking for alternatives now due to the plastic bag that you package the powder in. Im trying to eliminate single use plastic where ever I can. Ive been successful in the kitchen, and the laundry - with the exception of the ziplock bag inside the box. Would you consider eliminating this bag? A lot of other brands just have the powder in the box, could it be possible that you do the same?
Thankyou for reaching out and we appreciate the opportunity to explain why we include the plastic bag!
We need to use an inner plastic liner because of the eucalyptus oil in our formula. We use real, 100% natural essential oil which is sensitive to exposure to the air. Without the protective liner it loses its aroma and potency.
We're hoping to move away from the plastic bag but our R&D team have not yet found an alternative material that works and won't price us out of the market in terms of production costs. Rest assured we are still working on it! It's very important to us to strive for sustainability and we've also been signatories of the Australian Packaging Convenant since 2006.
In the meantime you can recycle this bag at soft plastic recycling bins found at most supermarkets.
Hope this explaination helps and let us know if you have any further questions!
