My mum had bought this soap powder as she loves to buy in bulk and thought it would be good.
I have never been allergic to anything in my life, but for four and a half weeks I have been kept up scratching, buying every medication possible and even thinking I had dust mites or something.
Washing my clothes, sheets and quilts in Kirkland and I'm still getting hives all over me, and the itching is extremely intense.
It wasn't untill my chemist suggested maybe your laundry detergent is the cause. I then tested my skin and found an instant intense reaction.
I can't even breathe the smell of the powder in. I'm just glad I finally found the solution.
But I must add no one else in my house had this reaction.
It's back up my old washing powder we have always used!
Thanks for sharing your review.
You're definitely not the first person to tell me they've had an allergic reaction to one of Kirkland's versions of laundry detergent, although you're the first person to give me a review of the powdered variety.

Stay Away from Kirkland Powder Detergent: Caused Extreme Itchiness
I knew right from the first wash that I was having an allergic reaction to this detergent.
I always wear undershirts and right after I put one on my upper back started to tingle and itch. I ignored it because it went away after an hour of wear.
The next load I conscientiously put in half the recommended amount and I didn't have any reaction at all.
Forgetting my original experience I went back to the normal amount and this time it was absolutely horrible, my sides, back, shoulders, and neck. It was a full reaction and was extremely itchy for hours and I was glowing red.
I do not have sensitive skin so this was surprising.
I highly recommend staying away from this product if you have sensitive skin, or if you do use it and experience any reaction, do not give it a second try.
I Had An Allergic Reaction To Kirkland Signature Laundry Detergent Super Concentrate Too

I bought this washing powder a couple of months before.
After putting it in the washing machine I started coughing badly and ended up with sneezing and a sore throat.
Same thing happened to my two daughters.
One thing I would like to mention is that none of us ever had any allergy in life. We tried again and the same thing happened.
I would not recommend anyone buy this product.
Thanks for sharing your reviews. I'm so sorry everyone has had these bad allergic reactions to this product.
I am curious about how this product cleans, as well as the reactions it is causing in people. Presumably some people can use it and actually wash their clothes with it regularly, or they wouldn't keep selling it.
