The One Green Planet Verdict: We sampled Squeaky Green laundry powder and absolutely loved it! This product is a great way to live more sustainably without sacrificing quality.
We loved the recycled, compostable packaging, the convenient measuring scoop, and the product’s overall value and effectiveness. A little scoop goes a long way, which means you save money and we all save packaging.
Squeaky Green worked just as well on a full load of clothes as any major brand we’ve tried, and dissolved completely even in cold water. From sweaty gym clothes to dirty towels, everything came out soft and clean. And with NO harsh chemicals or fragrances, and nothing artificial!
