Allen’s Naturally Laundry Detergent Review and Giveaway


I’m excited to bring you this laundry detergent for several reasons today. First, it’s made in my home state and I love giving away products made in Michigan. Second, this is the detergent we use at home to clean all of our laundry; Allen’s Naturally Laundry Detergent is the brand I choose to spend my money on. Lastly, Allen’s Naturally is an ethically sound business that you never have to worry about. They are, in fact, the real deal.

Allen’s Naturally was born about 30 years ago in cooperation with a Store Front Cooperative named Stone Soup (which has since closed), whose members wanted home care products free of dyes, perfumes, and fragrances. Many of the members were involved in the Feingold diet. Dr. Feingold’s theory was that children were hyperkinetic because of the dyes in food. It was the belief of the co-op members that the dyes in national brands of laundry detergent might leave a residue that could possibly migrate through the skin into the body. Other members had MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) and believed perfumes or fragrances to be a major culprit.

Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. Allen’s Naturally Laundry Detergent is environmentally friendly, never tested on animals, and is a great choice for those with Multiple Chemical Sensitivites. Allen’s is offered in a liquid or powder form and is recommended by many major cloth diaper manufacturers. Great for cloth diapers, yes, but Allen’s is the perfect choice for all of your laundering needs. The gallon size is the most economical choice and lasts my family of six, with one in cloth diapers, SEVEN months. Yes, you heard me correctly, my gallon size of Allen’s Naturally Laundry Detergent lasts me seven months!

One of my favorite things about Allen’s Naturally is that when we travel, I can adjust the amount of detergent depending on the type of machine I’m using without ill consequence. I often error on the side of putting in more detergent than I probably need but because Allen’s is so “clean” there is never any change on my daughter’s very sensitive bum. Another favorable attribute is that unlike other unscented detergents, my clothes are left clean but with the absence of ANY smell. With other unscented detergents I’ve tried, there’s a noticeable “unscented” scent. This is never the case with Allen’s. My laundry room is not a laboratory, but from my experience, Allen’s is as close as you can come to having no residue left behind on your clothes.

I love Allen’s and I know you will too.

Thanks to Allen’s Naturally, one lucky winner will win their very own gallon of detergent and a dispensing pump! Enter below for your chance to win.

    I would love to win this detergent. I’ve never used it before but I have a toddler and a baby on the way and would love to try it out. I think the gallon size will last me and my family of four 8 months. :)

  2. Heidi kobrin seligman says

    6 months ! 4 kids and cloth diapers! Love to try I’m using sun and earth now , but I feel residue issues!

  3. says

    A gallon wouldn’t last long… It’s amazing how much laundry our small family goes through. I was just looking into this detergent because I am just beginning to use cloth pads!

  4. Kim Hokanson says

    We have a toddler, and we use cloth diapers. This could last us a long time, though! Maybe six months!! We’d love to try it.

  5. Jeri Thurber says

    A gallon lasted 6 months when I only used it for dipes, but goes faster now that I use it for all our laundry.

  6. Linda says

    A gallon would solely be used for cloth diapers. At the rate of a wash 1 to 2 days, a gallon would last approximately 2-2.5 months.

  7. Ashley R says

    If it lasts a family of 6 seven months, I imagine it’d last my little family of three (one in CDs!) a whole year! AWESOME!

  8. Jen S says

    I’ve been using Allen’s Naturally for five months now on my son’s cloth diapers and love it! I decided to use it exclusively for all my family’s laundry, and we still have a good quarter gallon left.

  9. says

    I think a gallon would last my family a year or more … we don’t have children in the house and don’t get particularly dirty at work so … I think it just might last “forever”. :-)
