It Works

Energy Smart Laundry Detergent is formulated for high performance cleaning in low energy settings. Energy Smart is formulated with advanced enzyme technology to give the same performance in cold and warm water. Not only is this product formulated for cold water, but each household can save $17 per year using low energy settings*.

*Energy savings are based on switching from a typical mix of hot, warm and cold wash and rinse settings to using cold wash and rinse settings for 300 loads per year. Energy savings are derived from a weighted average of water heater fuel types and front and top loading washers. Dollar savings estimates represent the total laundry system and include reduced energy consumption of the washer and water heater. Results may vary based on washing machine model and cost of energy.

Did You Know?

Artificial brightners are synthetic chemicals that make fabrics appear to glow in ultraviolet light. They don't have anything to do with getting things clean - they're only added to detergents to make us think our laundry is brighter and whiter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells great! Works well! I have been so pleased with this detergent. The smell is so pleasant and fresh and bright, but still unobtrusive. The detergent works very well to get our clothes clean. It works well to remove odors from clothes, which honestly surprised me as previously we used a special "sports odor removal" detergent. I received a coupon to try this product in exchange for an honest review. We will absolutely purchase again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Environmentally safe! I received a coupon from the Generation Good community in exchange for my honest opinion. I love that this detergent is safe without all of the harsh chemicals that others use. I wish that it had a more pleasant smell, or any smell at all. I didn't really notice cleaner clothes either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this detergent! I am member of Generation Good, and received this product to try for free. I am always striving to use all natural products for my family and I LOVE this detergent. I have used this product for about a week on everything from stained toddler clothes to bathroom towels and everything comes out smelling fresh, and incredibly clean. I have tried many natural laundry detergents and this is by far the best performing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy smart makes me feel smart using it I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. The liquid detergent is very efficient when cleaning my clothes, i used less detergent than other famous brand, and my clothes is all clean, I love seventh generation products, becuase it is more natural and contains no chemical or harmful ingredients.
