Era Liquid Laundry Detergent Review - Fights Stains Well But Hate The Scent
Drew has shared his Era liquid laundry detergent review.
I work for a major retail company. I am around liquid laundry detergent all of the time.
Additionally, due to my specific duties, my clothes become quite soiled and dirty.
I find it interesting and fun to experiment with different laundry detergents. I have the opportunity to be one of the first to smell the scent of new laundry detergents as they arrive.
This review is about Era liquid laundry detergent, the base kind, called "Active Stainfighter" formula. Where Era excels, without a doubt, is stain removal, in my opinion.
My clothes tend to be soiled by a wide variety of messes. Anything from typical dirt, grease and grime to my lunch, which often includes spaghetti sauce. Era did not let me down while fighting and combating these stains.
These stains are also often set in by as much as 7 days. This is due to only doing laundry once a week.
Era does disappoint in the nose department, however. While it does not leave any odor behind in the clothes, it does not smell appealing to begin with. I liken the scent of Era to aged garbage honestly. It's not enjoyable like many of the others.
On the other hand it's not overly scented with fufu stuff. So it can technically be a positive.
Thanks Drew for sharing your review. I guess you are a braver soul then I, because if I thought something smelled like garbage I don't believe I would have washed my clothing in it. I guess the bright side is that you say it does not leave an odor behind in the clothing after they are washed.
If you read the other reviews that have already been submitted, you will notice that others say this too, about a mild or light scent after the clothing is washed (not about the garbage smell). Some people like to have a lingering scent, while others don't, which is I guess one of the many reasons there are so many formulations of detergent out there.
It is an unsung product that has worked effectively without having to be changed. I would use this instead of all the new products that they improve on today.
It takes out berry stains, blood and ring around the collar.
I had a suit that I pulled out my closet which I had not worn in over 8 years. I noticed it had a stain on it. Since I had not worn it for so long I thought that I could not get the stain out, I thought the stain was set and unremovable.
I rubbed some ERA on it and washed it and the stain came out.
ERA is a detergent that gets no recognition and I think it should.
My main problem with ERA is that I am finding it hard to buy. I think the company that produces this product should make it known to the public of its unique qualities and make it more available.
I went to three stores today and was unable to purchase any. Help me out please.
