Has anyone else noticed that the cheap laundry soap works better?

I usually buy All Free and Clear but the last time I shopped I was on a really tight budget and so I bought a box of powder Sun because it was cheap. Ever since I have been using the Sun my clothes have been getting much cleaner in the washer. They smell better when they come out. They feel better when I put them on. And stuff has been coming out of my son's clothes that I would have sworn were ruined.Its like my clothese were not getting clean before and I didn't even know it until now. Anybody else have this experience?

  • The Sun brand gives me a rash. I use All free and clear because of the rash I was getting from sun.

  • The Sun hasn't given anyone in my family a rash yet. I have been using it for 2 weeks now. I think that the All was just "free and gentle" or whatever that they removed all the really harch cleanser's in it and so it doesn't work that great.

  • Is Sun brand at the regular grocery stores or do you have to go to a particular store?

  • I think you can buy it anywhere. I have seen it at Walmart, Foodmax..........

  • All Free & Clear may not clean as well, but I haven't noticed that with my wash. It is the only thing that I can use for my family, otherwise we all get dry skin. That may cost a little more, but it's sure worth it to me, otherwise I would end up using medicated creams, and the saving would be lost anyway.
