This is a really great product. I was always told when I did something, do it the right way. Washing socks, tank tops and white shirts was always one of those delicate things. If you put too much bleach it'll rip your whites up eventually. If you didnt put enough your whites would'nt come out looking like they've just been washed.

With Oxi clean your whites almost come out looking brand new. Nothing beats buying a pack of brand new socks or brand new wife beaters. The one thing that comes close to that new look is using this product! I wouldn't give it a 5 because unfortunately there is no reversing things like tears from a lot of Clorox and certain stains.

I see this has a lot of good reviews but I didn't have very good luck with it all. It left my clothes all powdery and gross. My darks, especially my blacks, had powdery residue all over them and I kept having to rewash/rinse them. It didn't seem to matter how much or how little powder I used. I ended up throwing out the last half of the box. I was not happy.

    Great product! Gets stains out of my 3 year olds' clothes! Light scent too so it's great for those who can't handle scents.

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    try out many different brands of laundry detergents all the time and I finally decided to try out this Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry detergent because I had heard a lot of wonderful things about OxiClean. I knew that I liked Arm & Hammer laundry detergent so I really thought I was going to love this product. I have mixed reviews about it. This laundry detergent cleans my laundry wonderfully. I have absolutely no complaints about it's performance as it got out rough stains with ease. Even heavily soiled clothes came out clean. I loved that my clothes seemed brighter too. At this point, I just knew this was a great detergent. I changed my mind quickly after wearing some of the clothes that had been washed in this detergent. It made me itch really badly. It was so bad that I had to change clothes into something that was not washed in it. I was so disappointed because it worked so well and not to mention I had a ton of laundry to redo. I would recommend this detergent to others to try out for themselves though. It seems that the OxiClean was too much for my sensitive skin.

    Bad experience

    By 

    from NA

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    I purchased the Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent only once during a sale and was really disappointed after using this product. The first day when I used this detergent, I only applied a small amount to the non white clothes and kept them for washing but after few minutes, I started getting an unpleasant smell and the clothes started stinking badly. The dresses got damaged and I noticed few holes as well and since only few minutes had passed by, the entire dress was not affected completely. I also noticed a redness on my skin which was caused while applying the detergent to my clothes and I had to apply a cream to get relief.

    I went back with the detergent to the shop I purchased it from and he said that the product I purchased was of the previous year and hence it caused the reaction with the clothes. I just returned the product to the shop and decided not to purchase this product again.

    Pretty good product

    By 

    from Ellerslie GA

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    I have previously and int he past purchased and used this Arm and Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent and found that I really did like it and I still use it from time to time although I have found others I like more nowadays. The first good thing about this product is the OxiClean part of it. It has a certain cleaning additive that helps to get stains out better than a lot of the leading detergents. I found that this Arm and Hammer laundry detergent worked really well at getting out stains if I wet some of it and made a paste and put it directly on the stain and wa la the stain came right out. Also the price of this particular laundry detergent is pretty reasonable and it goes a long way. You do not have to use a lot to get the job done. This laundry detergent also did a good job with cleaning all of my clothes and getting smells out and stains out. The only thing I dont like is that it is a powder and i found that I had to be very careful and make sure I put it under the running water so it would dissolve. Also it has a very very light scent which is always a plus for me. I would certainly recommend this product to all of my friends and family.

    Removes all stains without being harsh

    By 

    from Stroudsburg, PA

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    I love the liquid version of the Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean detergent, so I decided to try out the Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent as well.

    The Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent is a color safe powder detergent that has a two in one cleaning power to both brighten and whiten your clothes at the same time. You can do up to 115 loads of laundry with one box, and it gives a nice fresh baking soda scent. It's made with real baking soda which helps remove tough stains and odors while preventing your clothes from fading.

    I really did enjoy the powder version of this detergent. I felt like it worked the same as the liquid version. It made my white clothes whiter without having to use bleach on them. It completely removed the stains out of my clothes, and it even made my colored clothes brighter as well. I think the reason that the stains were so easily removed is because of the baking soda and the oxiclean in the detergents. It got rid of blood, oil, sweat, grass/dirt stains, and more. The baking soda does an amazing job at getting rid of sweat and odors in clothes as well. It always leaves my clothes smelling fresh and clean.

    Also this detergent is great for people who have sensitive skin because it is non-irritating. The scent of the detergent is very light, and it's pleasant. It's not something strong or overpowering.

    I never have any problems with this detergent, but I think the reason why people are having trouble with white spots on there clothes is because they are just dumping the powder in on their clothes, and not allowing it to dissolve in the water properly.

    I would definitely recommend this detergent, in both the powder and the liquid form. I think Arm & Hammer makes one of the best laundry detergents I've ever tried.

    Performance
    It cleaned and brightened my clothes thoroughly without fading or damaging them. It did get all the stains out of my whites without having to add bleach into the detergent which was great. I noticed that my colored clothes were brighter as well. There isn't a stain that this laundry detergent can't remove, that's for sure.

    Scent
    The Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent has a nice clean and fresh pleasant scent that isn't overpowering or irritating. I find that it doesn't last for very long which is great for people who have asthma, allergies, or have allergic reactions to scented laundry detergents. Because the scent is so light, and the detergent has great cleaning power I'm sure you could use this on children's or babies clothing.

    Difficult to Dissolve

    By 

    from Hartford, CT

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    I've never been big on powder laundry detergent since it never seems to dissolve for me no matter what temperature water I use so I was hesitant to purchase this even though I've used the same formula as a liquid and liked it. The box was damaged though so I got it for half off and couldn't pass up that kind of a deal so it went home with me.

    I usually wash my laundry in hot water, especially towels and sheets so I used the appropriate amount of detergent along with hot water and started the cycle. When I was taking my dark towels out of the wash I noticed that there were several white spots on them which I discovered were clumps of undissolved detergent that had sort of melted into the towel but not actually dissolved. So, I had to rewash my towels with my regular detergent.

    I have since successfully used this by putting everything in the washer and using the soak setting so it sits for a while before it goes through the cycle. It's a pain but I usually set the cycle to start before bed and it's all set by morning. I hate to waste the detergent so I had to find a way to use it.

    If you do get the detergent to dissolve by whatever means then this is a good quality detergent and gets laundry clean and it smells fresh.

    This is a pretty good laundry detergent!

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    I have heard good things about this product, so I had to give it a try. I think that this is a nice laundry detergent. I will say that I like the liquid version of this a lot more than the powder version. I think it works better. Although this Arm and Hammer laundry detergent is a good one. I can't say that it is my favorite out there. I would definitely use this again though. I pretty much buy laundry detergent based on price and how it works. If I found a good price on this product I would buy it again. It does the job of getting your clothes clean and fresh. My clothes came out looking good. The extra ingredient in this really helps with getting out stains. That is always important. I think that the scent of this is pretty good. It has a crisp and fresh scent to it. All in all it is a pretty good laundry detergent.

    Performance
    It does a good job of getting clothes clean and does well with getting out stains.

    Scent
    The scent of this laundry detergent is a good one. I liked it. It's a fresh scent.

    I prefer the liquid variety considerably over the powder variety

    By 

    from West Virginia

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    I am a fan of this particular detergent in its liquid form but the powder just wasn't for me.

    The product has an easy measure scoop inside to get the detergent out with but it seemed no matter how careful I was, the dust particles flew up got into my nose.

    The detergent doesn't go well in cold water. It wouldn't dissolve and I had to resolve to warm and hot washing to use this up.

    Sometimes I would find the powder in my clothes after the wash and other times excess powder would be on the bottom of the wash. You kind of have to spin the powder around with your hands to mix it up good in the wash water, or let the washer dash for a few minutes before putting clothes in.

    I'm a fan of liquid Arm and Hammer with Oxi but this powder just didn't do the trick. The suds weren't as very good with this product at all. It did get the clothes moderately clean after I got it to dissolve and they smelled good but the hot water wash takes away a good amount of scent.

    Performance
    If you can actually manage to get it dissolved in the water, it performs pretty well but loses a lot of scent.

    Scent
    The scent is good but in warm and hot water you don't get very much scent.

    The only detergent for well water

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Powder Laundry Detergent:

    This is the only detergent that I will use in It is the only detergent that works well with well supplied water. The detergent is economical and efficient for all types of washers. I am very happy with Arm and Hammer Detergent versus any other brand of detergent I have tried many brands but not of them provide the cleaning quality that Arm and Hammer provides.

    Performance
    My house is in the country with well water. This is the only detergent that works well for performance in smell and keeping clothes clean.

    Scent
    I love the smell of this detergent. I have sensitive skin that reacts with multiple different fragrances. Arm and Hammer is one that I do not have to worry about. Arm and Hammer detergent comes in multiple different varieties. The best part of this detergent unlike multiple types is my clothes always smell clean even after they get wet. Other detergents when used with my well water on my towels smell very musty and stink. Arm and Hammer has a very save level of pH that is higher than others.
