    To be honest I've not found ebay that cheap for this kind of product. Posting washing powder must be quite expensive, it's worth checking Lidl/Aldi, Home Bargains, Pound Shop etc. If you don't have any stores close to you maybe a one off purchase from a supermarket every now and again, when they are on offer?
    If you are having allergic reactions eco balls are a good, cheap option :)

    You might find Amazon is a better place to search for such things. I know I've had good deals on cat food, tea & coffee & toilet rolls from Amazon in the past.
    The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

    I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.

    With postage I'd be really suprised if you can find good quality, cheap powder with delivery for less than buying from one of the bargain stores yourself.

    Try home bargains, pound stretcher etc.

    Lots of good buys around all the time either from supermarkets and own brands such as Aldi or Lidl so have a good shop around (also consider Amazon Subscribe & Save if you spot a good buy - you can always cancel the subscription later once you have received the order but buying one item save you 5%, 5 different items save you 15%).

    If you mix wash powder with equal weight/quantities of Soda Crystals (£1 for a 1kg bag) it reduces the cost per wash.
    So look out for powder offers (any brand you prefer to use and the add the Soda crystals).


    I mix mine (a large wash powder box at a time with several bags of the soda crystals) and decant to old liquid tabs containers for easer of use).
    Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.

    We have used this place for years and its a real bargain. He has an eBay shop,
    http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Mr-Suds-Soap-Factory
    Or his own website which is a bit cheaper http://www.mrsudssoapfactory.co.uk/
    We bought 30 kgs of washing powder for under £30 delevered. It works out for us about 3-4p a wash.

    Its the same as Persil, we usually get 1 Bio for whites and 2 non Bio for the colours. Re the allergic reactions, not had any incidents at all. On the eBay store they have excellent feedback and the cleaning results are Fab.

    If someone had an allergic reaction to certain products if you look at the ingredients list you may find a common denominator e.g. limonene or sodium lauril sulphate, or you can compare to those that don't give a reaction
    The best way of finding out about ingredients, if they are not listed, is to look for the data safety sheet on the internet.
