We miss you!

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

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! Show details

Best for babies clothes

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 Show details

Best washing powder!

40 years of washing clothes, using all brands, plus stain removers.
AWARE is the best! Absolutely none better.
My white/ lights are brilliant. Just removed old blood stain out of a sheet.

Doesn't clean very well

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.

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. Show details

Works great for eczema prone skin, but

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. Show details

What happened

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. Show details

Good for your skin and the environment

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. Show details

The only laundry cleaner my son can use

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! Show details

Used this product 4 months ago, washed really well.
Bought it again last week, and now have a white powder on everything i have washed, and yes i did mix it before adding my clothes.
Not happy, had to re-wash everything, will not be wasting my money . Show details

Hello- with the increase of respiratory sensitivity due to COVID and other viruses and asthma it seams illogical to stop production of Aware Sensitive Laundry Powder. Fragrance free has helped me for many years to enjoy clean clothes and been able to breathe a bit more freely. ( Severe Chemical Sensitivity) Maybe the visual marketing could be updated to society increasing needs and setting as well an online order site could help us your users and you the production company. I would not mind receiving information about where and how to buy your product. Koya1014@hotmail.com.
