Why did they change to liquid detergent?

published

Lux flakes are the best for hand washing woollens in a basin or bucket where you could lightly rub the woollens, rinse and gently squeeze. Great for allergy sufferers and asthmatics. Please, please, please bring back this long lasting favourite Australian product.

Lux Flakes was my favourite for decades now it's gone

published

I'm so disappointed that I can no longer buy Lux Flakes. I've used it for decades, the scent is incomparable and impossible to imitate. The liquid isn't the same. It was effective, gentle and reliable.

Purchased at Woolworths for $8.

Lux is the best for skin problems

published

I have severe allergic dermatitis. My dermatologist told me he had no idea what was acerbating the condition and I ended up in hospital on antibiotics for the condition. I was using a liquid wash supposedly suitable for babies and my dermatologist recommended lux flakes. After using Lux my condition cleared up and I have been free of the problems for more than 12 months. Please never discontinue Lux flakes as they are recommended by specialists and a lot of people have skin conditions that need gentle washing products.

Purchased in at Woolworths for $8.49.

Pure Excellent Clean

published

Made into a powder with washing soda and few drops of euc oil. Use 1 or 2 tblspoons mixed in hot water each wash. Excellent for front loader, cleaner brighter clothes softer, washing woollens, rinses out well. Gentle on hands. No strong aroma. No white residues. Product and container Good for the environment. Hurrah! Tip: to rinse a front loader washingmachine use WATER ONLY on the short cycle.

Easy way to dissolve Lux Flakes

published

Started using this about 3 months ago - but like many found the dissolving part annoying and slightly dangerous. I had to carry the cup of boiling solution from the kitchen to the laundry. Now I make up the dry mix as recommended on the Lux packet and keep it in the kitchen. I also have a camping type thermocup with lid and handle (easily sourced from a camp shop if you haven't already got a spare one). One teaspoon of mixture in the thermocup, pour on the boiling water and stir until dissolved. Put the lid on the cup, walk to the laundry, pour in and away you go. Much safer than carrying an open cup. Clean washing on one teaspoon of the mixture.

Not too bad

published

Bought this lux soap flakes to try something new
Placed the powder into the washing machine like would with any other washing powder or liquid and it just lathered up like there was no tomorrow. Did an alright job at cleaning the clothes and leaves the clothes soft; however, has a weird milky smell about it

brian
brian

The smell is similar to baby powder.
Think this powder is meant for soaking clothes in a bucket of water - it says on the side to add baking soda and eucalyptus oil if want to use the powder to wash clothes and / or, linen in the washing machine

Perfect for whites and colours

published

Whites come out perfect and colours are enhanced. The smell is clean and refreshing. I highly recommend using this product. I was surprised at how my clothes come out so clean and fresh and perfect without scrubbing.

Great for babies

published

Was recommended this product by my Mum and a friend. We have always dissolved powders when doing laundry so that wasn't as issue for me. I have eczema so was concerned my daughter may have it too (she does). We had no issues or any reactions to Lux, but only stopped using it because of the cost.
