This is the strangest laundry detergent container I have every seen. I started using Seventh Generation products a while ago, and I just started using the Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent. I was very confused in the store when I saw the bottle. It is a weird biodegradable cardboard material. I couldn't understand how the detergent wasn't seeping through the container. When I got home, I saw that the detergent was inside of a bag. The detergent works really well at cleaning my clothes, but it doesn't leave them smelling nice. It my son has a pair of socks that stink, this detergent does not get rid of the smell. Also, I have an issue with the container. It seems like it would hold up well, but it falls apart when it gets wet. I usually wash clothes while I'm doing dishes, so sometimes I pick it up while my hands are a little wet. After a few times or picking it up with wet hands, the handle part is falling apart.
