Few months ago I received a bag full of freebies from our local supermarket Coles. One of the items included therein is a 40gram pack of Lux detergent flakes. However, the package indicates that it is only recommended for top loader machine and for handwashing. Since my washing machine is front loader I did not use it and just kept it in my laundry storage cabinet. One week ago, my washine broke down and I had to start handwashing my clothes. I used the usual detergent powder I am using for the laundry and handwashed our clothes. I suddenly remember the freebies I have got and took the Lux 40gram sachet of laudry detergent flakes.
I swear that I enjoyed handwashing my clothes using this detergent flakes. First, my clothes lathered enough to clean the clothes really well. Second, the scent of the detergent flakes is so beautiful; it has a powder fresh scent. Third, no matter how much the clothes lathered during the washing, when I started rinsing them manually, the clothes did not have that sticky feel of the soapiness in the water. I think that made the washing easier and I saved water too. Fourth, my hands felt so smooth and I did not experience any dryness and itchiness which I usually experience using other detergent soaps. And finally, fifth, with that 40-gram detergent flakes I was able to wash, more or less, 5 kilos of clothes.
The repair man cannot fix my washing machine until after New Year and they scheduled the repair on the second week of January, arrrgh! toooo long!... I bought a box of this great product with the net weight of 700grams for $6.25 Ausd. I still have more than a week to handwash my clothes. I am glad I discovered Lux detergent flakes. It makes my washing easier. I highly recommend this. Two thumbs up!
