I tried to pull the strips on the outer edge of this product -- they failed, in both directions. I then had to improvise my way into the container. The lid is flimsy and does not create a good seal in the best of circumstances - it just has a very tiny lip to cling to the container! For a product that attracts and interacts with water in the air, this is unacceptable. I moved this to my other OxoCleaner bucket from a previous purchase once I finally got the thing to open.
I also found that when soaking my whites using plenty hot water, they didn't get as clean as two other competing products I had used previously. Very disappointed in this purchase.
I went ahead and ordered a 2LB tub of the main ingredient in all Oxy cleaners, and it was much cheaper than buying the commercial brands which are diluted with Soda Ash. You need to be careful to not breath in the dust and it's a bit harsher on your skin - so if you have little kids or pets you may want to stick with commercial mixes. However if saving money is vital go buy the raw chemical instead. If you want a commercial mix I had better luck with Charlie's Soap brand.
This product is awesome. I mixed some with water in a spray bottle, sprayed some stubborn stains that had permanently set into baby clothes that had been through four children, let them hang in the sun and the stains were gone!! I thought these clothes were toast but not with Seventh Gen Oxy!! So happy to find this. The sun alone couldn't save the clothes but the Oxy did!
I use 1 scoop to soak my cloth diaper inserts/prefolds in prior to washing them and the mustard yellow poo stains disappear and they smell good in the end. Again: I do wash the inserts after soaking in this, so the combination of the two works great.
I use this occasionally with towels and sheets that need an extra thorough cleaning to freshen up. Works well and I have never seen discoloration, etc from use. I use this with a high efficiency machine.
I am having trouble finding this item and I am not sure why - its the most excellent stain remover I have ever used. And its natural! I add this to heavily soiled loads of wash (I have many of these having a 4 year old boy who loves to play in the dirt!) and all stains are removed. It is truly amazing!
