Laundry Product Index

Below is our Laundry Product Index, an exhaustive list of laundry detergents and other laundry products. We have compiled information on all of the detergents and other laundry products that we could and placed them in one place for all of our member’s convenience. We have included information on our recommendations, the safety of these products in HE machines, and compiled their MSDS/SDS, if we were able to find it.

We do want to acknowledge Fluff Love and CD Science for being a resource and inspiration for the Laundry Product Index. They permitted us to use their compiled list of detergents in their Detergent Index in order to start our own Laundry Product Index. We have changed much here to provide information that is specific to regular laundry, rather than cloth diapers. Please see Fluff Love and CD Science for information specific to cloth diapering.
