RIP aware sensitive. You served my family well for 30+ years! Such a shame this wonderful product is no longer available. There was no need for pre-treaters or softeners with Aware sensitive, it did a brilliant job.

Powder version is Great. No allergic reaction.

published

Loved the old Aware sensitive powder detergent which is non-fragrant but I can no longer find this product at woolies. I tried the new Aware sensitive liquid detergent which has a strong fragrant and I had a bad allergic reaction. I wish they never changed from powder to liquid formula. I can’t seem to find powder version in groceries anymore, sad!

Best for babies clothes

published

It really is free from known allergens, washes baby clothes well enough. Of course I need to pre treat stains etc. I like it doesn’t foam up in my wash and a box lasts for months and months because you only need a TBSP

Purchased in at Coles Online for $9.

40 years of washing clothes, using all brands, plus stain removers.

Doesn't clean very well.

published

Everyday clothes, work clothes. The detergent is very mild at best. Won't remove odours etc. I don't have allergies and used it for a family member who insisted on it.

Having Multiple Chemical Sensitivity i just want to wash my clothes in a fragrance free irritant free washing solution. This is the only one for me. I have been using it for years. Cleans clothes, no odour whatsoever and no irritation. Thankyou a million times over.

SENSITIVE ON THE NOSE

I have multiple chemical sensitivities as well as being severely asthmatic and this is the only laundry powder that I can use that doesn't cause a nasty reaction health wise for me. I use it for regular washes and normally find I can buy it from Woolworths here in Sydney Australia.

Works great for eczema prone skin, but...

published

We have been using this product for about 2 years for our eczema prone son, but I have since developed an allergy or sensitivity to the laundry powder, not sure exactly what plant ingredients are used but would love to know as I may have to use a competing brand of a similar product as a substitute.

Purchased at Woolworths Physical store for $4.50.

What happened

published

I've been using Aware laundry powder for years, but have noticed the last three boxes (since they changed the packaging) don't wash nearly as well. Did they change the powder content as well? My socks and hubby's dirty gardening clothes come out just as dirty. Very disappointing, will have to find another detergent for sensitive skin.

Purchased in at Coles for $11.

Good for your skin and the environment

published

I use this powder to wash everything; clothes, swimmers, towels, sheets. I usually just tip the powder straight into my front loader but would recommend dissolving first when washing bulky items because those are the times I have noticed a little bit of remnant powder on things after the wash cycle has finished.
It's earth friendly! I love that it comes in a cardboard box without a plastic scoop and, most importantly for my family, it is great for sensitive skin because it has no harsh chemicals or fragrances.

The only laundry cleaner my son can use

published

We have tried almost every sensitive laundry powder available and this is the only product that doesn’t make my sons eczema flare up. Cleans very well in warm water (we use warm water so we can use less powder and have less build up in the clothes. We add tea tree essential oil to add a fresh non-toxic scent as this product has no scent at all. We’ve been using this for the last 5 years. It’s great!

Why can I not find your washing powder in any of the supermarkets? We have used nothing else for over 15 years. Safe for skin, septic tanks, the environment, our pocket and no overwhelming smell.
Can I buy direct if not in store happy to buy in bulk

Hi Jill,
I emailed them a while back because I’ve been using nothing else for my daughters clothes since she was born. They said the supermarkets unfortunately decided to no longer stock this item therefore they made the call to stop production

I also miss this laundry powder, prefer not to use laundry detergent in plastic bottles. I would also be happy to buy in bulk direct if the supermarkets won't stock it.
