convenient and great results

By 

from Eastlake, OH

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

I was a little skeptical about these new toss and go pods. They are expensive and other brands have left streaks on my clothes and residue behind in my washing machine. These are actually very good. They dissolved completely ( note, I did only use these on the hottest cycle) and there was no residue left behind in the machine. The results were very clean clothes and no meets spills from the detergent bottle.

Performance
These really impressed me with their cleaning ability. My husband's work clothes are caked in drywall and it is very difficult to thoroughly remove that . These pods did a fantastic job of breaking up the drywall crud. They also removed a lot of the stubborn makeup stains from my washcloths.

Scent
The scent was pleasant but it certainly didn't leave a lasting scent on the clothes. I like to have a pleasant clean smell to my laundry and these Pods fell a little short.

Great!

By 

from Kansas

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

I am really into the pod type laundry detergents right now. Right now I have to go to the Laundry Mat and lugging a heavy bottle of detergent is just a hassle. The pods are so much more convenient. I have tried quite a few different types of the pods, including these Arm & Hammer Crystal Burst Paks. This is definitely a good detergent!

These cost about as much as the other pod type detergents and can be found at a number of retailers. You simply toss the pak in and let it do its job. The product really deep cleans your clothes. One thing I loved was how it got rid of those yellow arm pit stains that a few of my shirts had [embarrassing!]. I have sensitive skin; however, this detergent did not bother my skin at all.

I would recommend this Arm & Hammer detergent because it is really convenient and works very well!

Performance
These Paks do a great job of washing your clothes. They even helped lessen those embarrassing yellow arm pit stains on a few of my white shirts.

Scent
This Paks have a fairly neutral scent. I like having a fresh clean scent left on my clothes, so this part was a little disappointing.

Just throw one in and watch it blast away the stains

By 

from Stroudsburg, PA

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

The Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent are single use detergent packs that include both the stain fighting power of baking soda and oxi clean combined. It provides a color safe bleach that is meant to brighten and whiten your clothes, as well as beat those tough to remove stains.

All you have to do to use the crystal burst packs is toss one in the washing machine with your laundry, and watch it dissolve and do it's work in just seconds. The great thing about the packs is that you don't have to carry big jugs of laundry detergent, and you don't have to measure out liquid detergent either.

I am a huge fan of all of the Arm & Hammer detergents, and this one didn't let me down either. It was less expensive then all of the other laundry packs on the market and it both brightened and whitened my clothes, as well as deep cleaned, and removed all the stains from my clothes. I was surprised at how well they dissolved and really worked to get rid of all of those tough stains while leaving my clothes smelling amazing. I found that these packs completely removed all sweat, dirt, blood, oil, and grease stains from my clothes and I only have to put them through the wash cycle one time. I also like to use these on my sheets, blankets, towels, and even pet beds. It completely gets all of that pet stench off of everything.

Performance
This not only brightens and whitens all of my clothes, but it completely removes all types of stains like blood, oil/grease, dirt, and more. I only had to put my clothes through one wash cycle, and not only were the stains gone but my clothes looked like brand new. I always expect detergents that are tough on stains to damage and fade my clothes, but this was gentle on my clothes, and brightened them completely. I am very satisfied.

Scent
It just has a regular clean, and fresh scent. I find that it's very faint, and doesn't last very long.

Perfect Combination

By 

from USA

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

Baking Soda paired with Oxy Clean means clean laundry. I used Oxy clean before so I know exactly how powerful at cleaning it is. Now having it with Arm and Hammer baking soda makes for a perfect stain busting combination. I have to say this stuff gets out the toughest stains. Not sure if it's the Oxy clean or the baking soda or the combination of both that gets out the toughest stains. A little goes a long way too. One pack is all you need for a full load. Also the price is not bad and it is worth it.

Performance
It removes the toughest stains and for 4.99 it is a great bargain. Say goodbye to drippy liquid laundry detergent and say hello to Arm and Hammer Power packs. I find that power packs are more convenient to use versus the traditional bottle of detergents. Just grab a few power packs per your laundry load and you are set.

Scent
Light clean smell. Not overwhelming. Clean well without overpowering scent.

Very good performance in a tiny package

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

I usually prefer liquid detergent packs, but these dry packs are very good too. They completely dissolve and leave my wash clean and smelling fresh. Even if my load is small and uses less water, the pack dissolves and doesn't a powdery residue nor any trace of the packaging. I have a variety of linens and furnishings to wash, such as clothes, bed linens, and throw rugs, even pillows, and all come out smelling clean and stains from sweat and pet mishaps come clean. This product costs less than the higher end ones, but it performs as well.

Performance
Quite good. I can best describe how well by describing what it can do. I can toss in a throw rug that my cat threw up on. I can toss in my work uniforms and dirty underwear and smelly shirts. I can wash stinky bedsheets that are almost begging to be washed because they are sour smelling. All of them come out clean and fresh. What really works for me is that one little pack does my whole load. I do not have to pour a third of a bottle of liquid detergent in like I used to. Smelling and seeing were believing after I doubted that the little pack would clean a whole load. I would pull out the throw rug and see no dirty spots. Dirty underwear stains were gone. Reusable cloth incontinence briefs and pads had no bad smells. Socks are white and soft. Uniforms would be clean and soft, which is great when they need to be worn all day. I work 12 hour shifts.

Scent
This is a clean fresh air kind of smell. Nothing fancy and floral, which I would like better, but at this price, clean wins over more expensive strongly scented detergents.

Worst expirence ever with detergent.

By 

from USA

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

First off, these things took forever to dissolve on cold in our front loader. It seems like they essentially started to break open about 3/4 of the way through the entire wash cycle. Its likely they might not be fully rinsing, as they are finally start to work around the time of the final spin/rinse. The scent to me wasn't all that great, it smelled like the clothes were hardly washed, or simply washed with no soap.

However, this wasn't even a major issue until 3 days after I started wearing the clothes washed in the packs. By the third day, I had a rash all over my face, neck and arms. Red, itchy, puffy, bumpy...looked like hives. Referred to an urgent care center from the first clinic I went to. Originally they recommended a steroid shot. However, the doctor at the second clinic simply went with oral steroid pills. He diagnosed it as contact dermatitis after we ruled out food, poison ivy etc. One of the nurses mentioned thoroughly patting my face down with a laundered towel probably started it, as well as my arms. I simply wrapped the towel around we and aired off for the rest. Face and arms got the majority of the contact. So I'm on day two of the medicine, still itchy and red. I will be calling Arm and Hammer. I would have liked to saved money with this brand, but back to Tide. Even the cheapest detergent you can buy did not affect my skin like this.

Performance
Seemed to clean OK....but tough grass stains required a second wash. Other brands get them out on first wash.

Scent
Not much of a scent, slight smell, but somewhat of an unwashed, dingy smell. Clothes just didn't seem clean or fresh.

A Burst of Clean, Stain-fighting Power in each Detergent Pak

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Crystal Burst Power Paks Laundry Detergent:

I'm a big fan of Arm & Hammer laundry detergent as well as OxiClean, so the combination of both in the form of the Crystal Burst Laundry Detergent Power Pak is a great match. I get a quality detergent, baking soda, and two types of OxiClean stain fighters all in one easy to use pak.

Crystal Burst is marketed as a 4-in-1 detergent because it contains deep cleaning micro crystals, removes tough stains, brightens and whitens, and there is no measuring required to use it. It's so easy to toss in the wash and get on with my day.

This laundry pak can be used in all machines, including HE, and dissolves quickly in both hot or cold water. Unlike some other detergent paks that I have used, I like that I can see it dissolve almost right away. It's also convenient that I can put my clothes into the washer right after I add the pak and don't have to wait for the washer to fill to the top.

The stand up, resealable package takes up less space on my laundry shelf and is pretty lightweight compared to some of the liquid detergents that I have lugged down into my laundry room.

I have only good things to say about the Arm & Hammer Crystal Burst Laundry Detergent Power Paks and highly recommend them.

Performance
This dissolves quickly, cleans my clothes, and fights stains. What more can I ask?

Scent
The scent of the laundry pak smells really nice, however it doesn't really linger on my clothes after they are washed and dried.
