I've used Xtra detergent here and there over the years and haven't had a bad experience. Love the Summer Fiesta and Mediterranean Breeze scents. My dirtiest laundry would be my sweaty workout clothes, and this brand gets them clean. I always pretreat stains and armpits of shirts no matter what detergent I use, so I do that with this detergent too and have had no problems. Xtra is a good value for me!
