Perfect powder for those who keep on forgetting to empty the washing machine

The brilliant thing about Lux soap flakes is that if you forget about your washing and leave it in the machine for a couple of days, you clothes do not get that damp mouldy smell. So if you are the busy tradie that keeps on forgetting to empty the washing machine this is the powder to get. Show details

Why did they change to liquid detergent?

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. Show details

Lux flakes are wonderful!

I have used lux flakes/ softly flakes for so many years! I have an allergic skin condition and this is the only product that I can use that doesn’t make me itch uncontrollably! A wonderful product and very gentle.
Please do not ever discontinue making it! Show details

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

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. Show details

Lux is the best for skin problems

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.  Show details

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. Show details

My favourite

I blend flakes to powder and just dissolve tsp as needed. Very economical and I love it. I use it for all my washing and have used for over a year. No allergic reaction, doesn't clog machine and I do cold wash. Show details

Easy way to dissolve Lux Flakes

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

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


Perfect for whites and colours

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

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.
