BOB Review of True Laundry Detergent
Growing up in Archer and Gainesville Florida, my mom was a Gain woman when it came to washing our clothes. She stocked up on it like toilet paper/paper towels/water. When Y2K hit in 2000, I had water, little Debbie snacks, toilet paper, and Gain laundry detergent in my freshman dorm room courtesy of my mom. All I knew to love was Gain until about 3 years ago. In 2014, I set out to find products/services I used in my everyday life that is produced by Black-Owned Businesses. Please know I was soooo excited when I found True Laundry detergent. Honestly, this is product took some time for me to like it but I was on a mission. Below you will see why!

My clothes are clean. I will say I’m used to Gain bubbles. Because this has no added chemicals to cause the bubbles I used to think I wasn’t adding enough or my clothes weren’t clean. But after getting used to it and sometimes adding lavender oil to it for scent, I realized my kid’s baseball clay stains had disappeared.
For 2 of the 101 oz bottles are $29.98 and with free shipping for those two. They have a rewards program where you can earn future $5 and 15% off when shopping online.
I had an issue with an online third-party that allows people to buy products by Black-Owned Businesses. I purchased True Laundry Detergent and they neglected to send the message to True Products (supposedly). I contacted True products but honestly had never followed up due to my email is out of control and I probably missed a response. What I do know is the online vendor did not contact me on time to correct the situation and once I told them I contacted True, they just told me “well you got it taken care of no need for us to do anything.”
Will I buy again? Hecks Yeah! And I do. I just like more scents and now I add the little balls/pellets by other brands to have that fresh smell of “After the Rain” that I love so much. I no longer add lavender. Please tell me if you have tried laundry detergent! I’m dying to know if you love it as much as I do. I’m sure I love that I got it from a BOB and not the act of doing laundry!
