I actually really like this detergent despite it's less than favourable reviews. Originally discovered this brand at Costco, and am finding is a great natural detergent for baby clothes especially. Scent is light and pleasant, it leaves clothes feeling soft (unlike other natural brands I have tried), cleaning power is like any other detergent (for tough soils I use oxyclean in addition). I always add detergent to water allowing it to dissolve, then add clothes, so have never had issue with oil spots. I would recommend, and I will purchase again.
