What Happened Fresh Start Powder Detergent? - No Longer In Stores?
by Ben the Laundry Man
Ben has provided his memories about Fresh Start powder detergent from his childhood.
Ben the Laundry Man says:
I am a man and 36 years old. I have loved Fresh Start since I was 5 years old and was very sad when it left the supermarkets and discount department stores. What happened???
I've used everything from Tide, Cheer, Gain, powders, liquids, and HE's....nothing compared to the standard that Fresh Start set.
I just learned that it can be bought on-line. So, I will order it. I understand it has changed hands, so the jury will have to be still out on this until I come back with another review after using at least one bottle. Hopefully the formula didn't change at all, that's all I can say.
I am excited and looking forward to my good ol' Fresh Start again! I hope I won't be disappointed.
Thanks Ben for sharing your memories of Fresh Start detergent from when you were younger. I would really appreciate you writing again once you've tried it again, to say if it lives up to your memories or not.
You are right, it is no longer available in stores, at least that I'm aware of. If anyone still has seen it in stores please comment to tell me where you've seen it.
It is still made though, like you said, and can be purchased through the link above, in bulk.
Fresh Start Laundry Detergent Bottle Very Transportation Friendly For Those Who Go To The Laundromat
(Astoria, NY )
Ed shared his experiences with this detergent.
I first found this product in Harris-Teeter stores, a supermarket in the South. As far as I know you can still buy it there. That's the only retail place that I know of now.
It used to have a great smell. They've skimped on the perfume in the last few years.
A friend who owns a laundromat turned me on to it. Cleans very well. The bottle is very transportation friendly - much better for people who carry the detergent around with them - going to laundromats.
Thanks Ed for sharing your review of this detergent.
You make a good point about transporting laundry supplies to the laundromat -- you have to have a strategy for it or you'll start to get bogged down with too much stuff to transport.
Fresh Start cleans my clothes better than any laundry detergent I have tried. Plus, it is the only laundry detergent, including all the name brands, that does not leave a residue on our clothes, and does not give my son an allergic reaction.
Thanks so much for sharing your review of this powdered laundry detergent.
That's a shame. I have used it before and it is a good detergent. I just didn't like the fact I could only get it online.
If anything, they should discontinue Ajax. That stuff doesn't clean worth a good gosh darn.
It seems to be the trend though. Detergent manufacturers are either raising the costs of, changing the formulations of, or discontinuing well loved detergents all together these days (Cheer free and gentle powder comes to mind too.
I, for one, have grown tired of the idiocy in the detergent industry. I'm making my own now and I'm much happier for it.
