Default Prudax washing powder 90 washes for £6!!!

Have been using this a while and thought I'd share with everyone here what a good deal it is. Available only at Morrisons, you get a large 90 wash box for £6. I was very sceptical at first but I'm totally converted now. We are a family of 4 and It's great on the kids dirty stained clothes!!!! at 6 pence a wash can't really go wrong!!!!

Official MoneySavingExpert insert: Morrisons has confirmed this detergent is available in most stores nationwide and is always priced at £6. Thanks to bettyboo333 for posting.

Bought this as reminded of the great deals available in Central Europe. I ran it through a number of washes with different garments. Verdict here is; good on whites but dark items fading unevenly.

The Costco washing powder is very effective & works out cheaper at 400 washes for £15.99.
Non Costco members can buy it online although they have to pay an extra 5% it still works out at around 4pence per wash.

I have re checked my dark washes today and they seem fine no fading??? but I tend to only run a money saving quick wash at 30 degrees....this is maybe why I've had no problems????

I have just bought some after seeing your message. Ordered it on a monday, arrived by UPS on the wednesday, very fast service. I opened the box, it has a lovely lemon smel, MMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm I am also surpriced on how concentrated the powder is. U only use a small scoop. One of the best buys I have ever seen on powder. I wish I could return the Formil power back. at 100 washes for £9.50 that dont sound attractive no more. many thanks for the tip, I will be ordering from costco from now on

not so great when you have to buy a minimum of two boxes tho at £15.99 a box, when your living on a budget of £9 per head, per week, for a family of 6, for everything inc utilities

edit to add: glad i found this tho as i have just switched to using Prudax and was wondering about buying cheap meaning i was going to be buying twice

I've been using Prudax for ages and use it on a 30 wash and have noticed no difference to my clothes, I was using Persil beforehand as I got it on offer. I have a muddy 10 year old too.

I looked for reviews when my hubbie came home with a box and couldn't find any, so glad to see others here rate it too.

Default Prudax liquid 90 wash £4.48 @ Morrisons today

Bought this to try today and done three loads, son had been outside in socks, had crawled around park in cream shorts and apart from one really bad mark on knee all marks came out with no pre treatment at 30deg

Impressed!

Does anyone know if this is biological or non-biological? Anyone tried it who has sensitive skin? I religiously stick to Fairy as I tend to get reactions to other brands. Even like Persil and Ariel non-bio- all of a sudden they tweak a few ingredients and I'm itching like crazy!

I'll have a look out for it.

Any other washing detergent I've used, I find using half the dose the manufacturer recommends still gets clothes clean and smelling fresh. But that's for clothes that don't really get dirty, just needing a freshen-up.
Public appearances now involve clothing. Sorry, it's part of my bail conditions.

Thanks for the recommendations. I've seen it in store and feel confident enough to give it a go now.
