Master List of Laundry Soaps

Sources of pure soap laundry powder or liquid

Always check ingredients first, manufacturers change product ingredients all the time.   I have compiled some of these along with other non-detergent products on an Amazon astore for convenience, and some of the links below go directly (most of the mfr links went bad).
A small % of astore purchases goes to SolveEczema if purchased through the link, on the order of $15/month).  Unfortunately, not all of these laundry products are available on Amazon so I can’t easily include most of them in the astore.

To save money or time, do it yourself!  There are many online recipes for laundry powder and gel using bar soaps, and various amounts of borax, washing soda, and baking soda.

Here are the pre-packaged products I found:

pure soap flakes

Pure Soap Flake Company
Laundry powder, soap flakes, soap bars







Pure Soap Flake Company
They have an unscented laundry powder which is just simple soap, baking soda, borax and washing soda.



cal ben seafoam laundry soap

Cal Ben Seafoam Laundry
25 lb. box

Cal Ben Seafoam Laundry Soap

More complicated list of ingredients than most of these, plus sprayed with citrus oil, but it’s essentially soap-based.  I have used this product successfully.




Zum Clean Laundry Soap












Zum Clean Laundry Soap
64-oz Sweet Orange on Amazon
Liquid laundry soap, various fragrances.  No unscented.




vermont soap

Vermont Soap Liquid Sunshine
Other Vermont Soap products work for laundry

Vermont Soap Liquid Sunshine Nontoxic Cleaner Concentrate

Gallon Vermont Soap Liquid Sunshine on Amazon
Vermont Soap has other liquid products that can be used in the laundry.  Their website describes uses for each product.



Dri-Pak Soap Flakes
through MSO Distributing

Pure soap flakes may work better if combined with baking soda, washing soda, and borax, per many recipes on the web


Dr. Bronners baby mild soap

Dr. Bronners Liquid Soap

Dr. Bronner’s
32-oz Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild liquid on Amazon
For many people, the only easy soap to access is Dr. Bronners.  Unscented Baby Mild as probably the best place to start.  Combine with baking soda, borax, and washing soda for better efficacy in laundry.


Savon de Marseille flakes

Savon de Marseille
Traditional French Soap

Savon de Marseille Soap Flakes
Marius Fabre Marseille soap flakes on Amazon
Traditional soap flakes.  Can be combined with washing soda and borax, especially in hard water.  (It may pay to shop around, these are expensive.  Their liquid soaps use minimal ingredients and pure olive oil, and are also an option combined with washing soda and borax.)


pure soap works laundry soap

Pure Soapworks Liquid Laundry Soap or Laundry Powder (Canada) 
This company seems to carry a full line of soap products.


Zote Laundry Soap Flakes

Pack of 8 (17.63oz) Zote laundry soap flakes on Amazon
Still the most popular laundry product in Mexico.  (From animal tallow.  Also contains fragrance and optical brighteners.  Despite it being soap, users must take care if allergy to fragrance or optical brighteners might be an issue.)


Grandma’s Laundry Soap

Grandma's Laundry Soap

Grandma’s Old-Fashioned Laundry Soap

Grandma’s laundry soap on Amazon

A lard-based soap flake product.  This appears not to have any dyes or unnecessary ingredients.  This company also sells a soap-based stain remover stick and bar soaps.  They seem to understand the difference between soap and detergent per the site.
