Welcome back to Laundryland! This week, I delved into the realm of Greenscents laundry liquid, hailed as Ethical Consumer's premier detergent. The moment the beautiful glass bottles arrived, excitement coursed through me, prompting a reflective pause on the peculiar joy that testing eco-friendly laundry products has become a defining part of my weekly routine. But, dear reader, did Greenscents live up to my lofty expectations?
How Socially Responsible is Greenscents Laundry Liquid?
In the arena of ethical consumerism, Ethical Consumer UK has consistently awarded Greenscents the highest points in its household and laundry categories, evident in both the 2017 and 2021 reviews. The Naturewatch Foundation, proudly endorses Greenscents in The Compassionate Shopping Guide. Greenscents proudly bears the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny logo. Greenscents is also certified; palm oil-free, vegan and organic, and they offer a refill service their bigger containers.

These international standards for Environmental Management and Quality Management show Greenscents' continuous efforts to monitor, manage, and enhance its products, ensuring compliance that goes above and beyond environmental legislation and regulations.
How Well Does Greenscents Laundry Liquid Clean Clothes?
I subjected Greenscents laundry liquid to a smorgasbord of laundry items throughout the week, and it performed admirably. Opting for two varieties, lavender and citrus, the liquid in the bottles smelled amazing, particularly the lavender. While the scent didn't completely translate to the washed items, they did emerge beautifully clean.
As always, the true litmus test lies in how it deals with the kids' school uniforms. This week, the school jumpers and joggers were in commendable condition, and their white school polos appeared practically perfect.
I had to embark on a stain-hunting expedition, encountering unidentified brownness both inside and outside.
Greenscents effortlessly eliminated these stains without a hitch.
How Much Does Greenscents Laundry Liquid Cost?
A 500ml bottle of Greenscents laundry liquid, priced at £7.20, delivers 22 washes, translating to a cost of 33p per wash. The website features a minimum spend, and the current promotion includes a complimentary bottle of laundry liquid with qualifying purchases. I ended up with three, a delightful bonus that adds to my satisfaction. However, the shipping was £15.50 which did take me aback.
Greenscents Laundry Liquid: My Verdict
Greenscents laundry liquid has exceeded all my expectations. Companies that willingly subject themselves to rigorous independent inspections through certifications are essentially proving that they aren't just making empty claims. As I navigate further into the ethical realm, I've developed a keen sense for detecting greenwashing BS. Fortunately, Greenscents emits no such odor. Will I choose Greenscents laundry liquid again? Absolutely!
