      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I have used Acdo for the past ten years and I certainly wouldn't even try any other washing product. I used to try them but always went back to this one. Why? Well, it's cheap in comparison with other powders. I worked out the price per wash and I think its about 12.5p Secondly, its versatile. I don't need a seperate powder for hand washing, one for machine washing and a gentle one for delicates. Acdo is gentle enough to do it all. It doesn't contain all those superfluous chemicals that you get in biological powder. Its 60% soap which is made from vegetable oils. So I don't see the point in paying extra for fancy powders when they do exactly the same job.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      There are so many different washing powders on the market that it is often difficult to know where to start when deciding which is the one you need. Ask yourself if you really need added perfume, added fabric softeners, and a multitude of extra chemicals that are supposed to give you a cleaner wash, but always add to the price. I used to use Acdo years ago and have recently gone back to it. This is a non-biological washing powder that's cheap and effeicient to use. A 500g box costs 99p and this does about 8 machine washes. That works out at 12.375 pence per wash. Acdo is particularly effective at low temperatures so its good for hand washing and soaking. I tend to soak whites in a bucket of hot water and Acdo over night and the result is excellent. This powder has been onthe market for more than 80 years. It is made from concentrated soap blended from vegetable oils. This makes it tough on dirt and stains but gentle enough for delicate fabrics and gentle to the skin. New Miracle Acdo has a slightly more concentrated formula but its still free of all those nasty phosphates and other harsh additives that most soap powders have. It's completely biodegradable so its kind to the environment. The packaging is made from 85% recycled material and it isn't tested on animals. It's efficient and cheap and compares wellwith the more expensive powders on the market. You can use it for hand washing, soaking and machine washing. So, what more can you ask of a soap powder. Give this a try. It will save you money and you'll still get a clean wash. You won't need to buy any other powder either as this will do the whole wash.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Acdo was the original not tested on animals, skin-friendly washing powder way back when before any of that became trendy. I recall my mother using it for precisely that reason in the early 70s. Having tried all the other poducts that don't actually take layers of my skin of (sensitive little soul me!); I've come back to Acdo because I think it's not only about the best, it's also by far the cheapest of the 'kinder' products. Not only is it less than half the price of Ecover, for example, it also rinses out much easier than most of the environmentally friendly ranges. That said it's not as 'right on' as some products in terms of its ingredients - but having to run an extra rinse cycle or three isn't very 'green' either! The big question - does it get the dirt out? The qualified answer is 'yes'. It doesn't shift very heavy ground in dirt and it doesn't shift dried-in stains such as biro; but for 99 per cent of my washing it's perfectly effective. Because it's not got so many perfumes etc it may also be worth trying out if there's as asthma sufferer in the family (I have a friend who no longer needs steroids after switching washing powders) - or even if you just want to smell of a favourite scent rather than Persil! It comes in both 'normal' and machine wash version - because it's not as widely available as i'd like I just put whichever I've got in the machine and it works fine The price below is for the 'normal' E3 size in Tesco in Wembley (where I last bought it)
