Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by brisar

There isn't much price comparison to be found for this 128oz size, however, several stores have the smaller 100oz size from around $9.99 (from reputable sellers).. which makes $7.50 for this larger 128oz size is a nice price. - brisar

I was surprised to find this ECOS laundry detergent at WalMart last year. In the past, this 'healthier' line of detergents was only found in specialty stores like Sprouts, Natural Grocer and a few other grocers who had branched out into more 'organic' offerings. Many stores sell this size for $14 or thereabouts, with a good sale price being in the $9.99 range for the 128oz. That's already under a dime a load; but the WalMart price is even better! No, it's not bleach-activated Tide or anything that will eat your skin; but it's great for normal wash loads and especially "fast-dry", "quik-dri" type fabrics. If you get the one with 'built-in natural softener', you may not need dryer sheets OR you may be able to just hang your favorite clothing pieces to dry. I find it great for cycling and tennis clothes!

Ten cents a load is my "slick" threshold and this beats that by a mile!

I found similar pricing on the variant with the built in softener at our Avery Ranch/Cedar Park store...pretty slick!

Ecos detergent was ranked 68th worst out of 69 detergents tested by Consumer Reports. EEK!

Yes, Ecos was that bad -- 2nd worst out of 69 detergents.

Cleaned much worse than average. If all you care about is saving money, you'll save some money adding a cup of just water rather than Ecos to your washload.

I doubt it. This is still soap, and will still kill your plants (most likely)

use this soap and can vouch for it. Just an FYI, if you've got kids that drag mud on their clothes day in and day out, aka you need heavy duty cleaning, this might not be for you. But for standard stuff, works really well, and good for you and environment etc. Amazing price here as well...

This is just one of many "tests" and results from CR with which I find fault. I've been using this detergent in many variants for quite a few years. I don't like the lavender at all(mild aversion to the smell); but all others have performed very well for me...even when I was teaching tennis and cycling many, many hours a week. Apparently, I don't get dirty enough to use the stuff recommended by CR.WinkWinkWink

Not a chance this stuff is ineffective...my eyes and nose tell me otherwise.Cool My clothes look and smell clean and the mild softener is just the thing for shirts and shorts I don't want to beat up in the dryer.

Ecos is good not sure what's CR rating is about. I have swapped back and forth between Ecos and Greensheild. They all come out clean. For fresh stains just put a spoonful of the detergent for an square inch of stain, leave it for 15 minutes then wash it, they are all gone. Highly recommend it

Repped for pointing out reality rather than emotional promotion.
