Omo Powder - but ??????
This product was great when manufacturer used to make it separately for Front or top loader. Regardless who sells the product, it is the manufacturer who should take responsibility and educate customers. Short and simple: Manufacturer of this product ( multinational company), before changing this product from 2 into 1, they should have thought of consumers, but they didn’t. A lot of consumers have either too or front loader. Even now when you purchase a new washing machine from a retailer, they recommend its best to use Omo ( powder- cheaper th...an liquid) when infact Omo powder cannot be used in Front Loader only good for top loader where as Liquid can be used in both (top/front). This manufacturer should not manufacture & Sell Omo Powder for Front/Top Loader but only for Top loader. If consumers use this product and have seen excessive suds, machine breaks down, please report to Fair Trading who can guide you to appropriate authorities for product review/investigation. Infact when this product 2 into 1 came onto the shelf, I called the company , they didn’t care. Omo powder comes in small/large quantities which majority of consumers buy as its cheaper to buy than Omo liquid which is dear. I myself have Front loader and never touch powder only Liquid .
Excessive suds killed our front loader.
We've used OMO for more than 30 years, but just this year, the amount of suds that it makes in our front loader is beyond the pale. Suds poured out of our front loader tray all down the front of the machine and we thought there was something wrong with the machine. It did it again and we carefully watched it while it did it once more. The front loader blew up/burnt out. We replaced it with another only to have the suds pour out again. Not a fault of the machine. Something not right with our favourite soap powder. Something has changed recently to cause this. We were confused as to what was happening as we didn't even know it could make too many suds until we looked up similar comments.
Used OMO for decades in front loader washing machines. However, no more, as this product now results in excessive suds. Also leaves residual powder In detergent dispenser which has to be rinsed off after every wash. Sad as this used to be a respected product.
Fixes even stinky soccer kits!
This is my go-to detergent, great on most fabrics; I am a nurse so I feel that my work clothes get a deep clean from OMO, I also have two boys and their Soccer kits are clean and fresh! I love the scent, and no need for Vanish!
This is the best on the market
For a general wash of any and all items, this gives the absolute best clean. Smells great and clothes come out sparkling and stain free. Love this, prepared to pay

Suds overflow from my Machine
I have used OMO Matic for over 40 years. Was even a member of the OMOmatic Club.
Since they have now combined the TOP Loader and FRONT Loader powder.
I will not purchase it anymore.
How can the same soap powder suit both Front Loader and Top Loader Machines? They have
If I use the amount stated on the box the suds overflow from my Machine.

I bought this a week ago on special at Coles for $12 best laundry liquid ever will be buying the 5 kilo box next time round as it works out less for more. Super fresh clean laundry.
The very best washing powder for a great clean
I have used regular omo or drive for over 20 years and always been happy with the results.
I would need a prewash spray for some items that are soiled.
I decided on using ONO ultimate after it was on sale and wasn’t expecting much difference between the regular OMO. I was wrong the end result is cleaner fresh smelling clothes and I no need my preen prewash spray unless it’s heavily stained clothing. I do believe it’s a better product with better results. I buy the 4 kilo box from either supermarkets and it’s only $30 all day everyday. At using one to two scoops this lasts even for a big family like mine.
Can happily recommend
New formula too foamy
Have used Omo front loader for years and love it, but since they changed to a top/front combo formula there is just way too much foam being generated in our machine. So disappointing but will be changing to a front loader specific formula.
Works well on greasy tradie work clothes
I'm not sure about 'tackle 99 tough stains' but works well for greasy clothes. I find that I can also use half the detergent for normal clothes. So that evens out any extra cost.
Nice smelling, good washing - over priced.
I finally caved in and forked over the $$$ to buy a large box of Omo Ultimate. It has a really nice fragrance and it washes clothes well, as you'd expect from an Omo product - but my usual powder is Surf (the one in the pink box) and Omo is literally more than double the price of Surf, which also has a nice fragrance and does a good job at washing. Save your money and try the Surf; you won't be sorry. The reason for only 3 stars is not the performance, but the price, and also, this powder suds up a lot more than Surf.
Works really well and use it for washing just about everything. I wash at least 3 loads a day
Including linen for short stay apartnents. Very good with all sorts of marks.
Waste Water Worry
After using LaundRite (Aldi) Powder plus additives for years, OMO Ultimate did brighten and freshen my wash to my amazement and continued use. However no matter how good OMO Ultimate professes to be; in the long run I do not consider this product biodegradable or user friendly for your lawn... as in my case, where I use the waste water from my laundry OMO Ultimate has slowly killed off the grass and promoted weed growth, unlike LAUNDRITE which is a biodegradable product!
[+] Brightens and freshens
[-] OMO's "Cleaner Planet Plan" - Not so environmentally friendly :(
Cream Of The Crop
This is by far the best laundry powder by Any of the Big Brands. I gets rid of anything no matter how old the stain is. Tip Never use to much, you dont need it.
As Good if not better than Aldi's award winning powder.
Love every scoop
Can not fault this washing powder
Worth paying the extra!
We don’t skimp on washing powder anymore!
LESS IN THE SCOOP BUT AMAZING CLEAN
My Son's white Ecko T-Shirts cane out PINK!!!! The washing was done, as always in a Top Loader washing machine. Also to be mentioned the washing was done separately. When the cycle was done the washing was PINK!!!! Two new t-shirts done the drain. I will not recommend OMO to any consumer
Big hard block of powder
I'm over buying omo. Every time I buy it its hard lumps or one big lump and I have to smash the living daylights out of it to use it. A simple load of washing can take me 5 miniuts smashing hard powder into small granuals just so I can use it in my machine. This has happened too many times. Even my mums top loader omo is always hard and difficult to scrape out of the box.
Good Product !
I have been using the Omo Ultimate washing powder for a while now. I have used the liquid too. It does great job, washes off hard stains too and not expensive to buy.
I've been low on clothes washing liquid so I bought the omo ultimate clothes washing powder and found it outstanding to get rid of stains however. But great for the kids, smells fab.
Questions & Answers
Since OMO Ultimate has combined both front/top loader in the one product, I have found excessive suds in every single wash and also leaves behind residual powder on the drawer. Does anyone find this happens on their front loader? Any recommendations on another washing powder which is just as good?
Does OMO Ultimate contain optical brighteners, QBA’s?
Is it Ok For Septic Tank ?
