Review of Cold Power laundry detergents
Aiming to deliver outstanding cold water results, Cold Power is one of the most recognised laundry detergent brands in Australia. But how does it really stack up? Canstar Blue reviews Cold Power laundry powders and liquids.
Cold Power formula is said to be specifically developed for cold water wash. It aims to bring bright whites and a brilliant clean. From an eco-friendly perspective, Cold Power encourages to use cold water washing as it uses less energy, reduces the environmental impact and is gentler to clothes.
Its full range is suitable for all machine types, both front and top loader washing machines. Cold Power laundry powders and liquids are not recommended for use with silk or woollen items and must not be combined with chlorine bleach.
Cold Power Core Range
The regular Cold Power range is designed to maintain colours and whites. It also offers Cold Power with a touch of Cuddly, which has a fabric conditioner to leave clothes soft. Standard sizes for the Cold Power Laundry Powder are 1kg, 2kg, 4kg and 6kg at all major retailers. The Cold Power with a touch of Cuddly is available in 900g, 1.8kg and 9kg sizes at selected retailers only.
Cold Power Liquids Range
The Cold Power Liquid range is specifically developed for cold water wash. The range comes in two fragrance varieties – Frangipani & Eucalyptus and Lemon. These two scents are broadly appealing as both bring a fresh aroma.
