What's Different About Oasis?
Oasis biocompatible cleaners not only break down, they break down into good things!
Oasis wash water contains no plant toxins-our unique formulas biodegrade into plant nutrients! Ordinary biodegradeable cleaners have a high pH level, contain the plant toxin sodium and sometimes chlorine and boron as well.
Oasis enables the sustainable reuse of wash water (greywater) for irrigation, the most ecological treatment option. By recycling water and nutrients, natural waters are kept pure. Oasis is also suitable for septic tank or sewer disposal.

iHerb Customer Reviews
We recycle washing machine water to water fruit trees, and tried this since it was recommended as safe. iHerb had the best price + shipping (I could not find it locally in San Antonio). We have been using it for several months now, and love it. It is recommended to use 1 ounce per wash, and that works well for "not so dirty" clothes. For greasy work jeans, etc, I use 2 ounces + rub a little straight on bad stains. We do have a water softener, in which we use the potassium pellets. If you have hard water, it might take more detergent per load. Since it a little expensive, I got a 1 ounce pump on eBay (intended to dispense 1 ounce of ketchup) and that works well to avoid using too much. It fits perfectly in the gallon opening, so I use 1 pump per load. The trees are doing great and we're saving money on watering plants!
We use gray water to water trees, so it is important to use bio-compatible products. This product gets our clothes as clean as any other product we've used, and there is no perfumed "fragrance". I would only suggest that there needs to be a seal perhaps UNDER the cap to prevent leaking when in transit.
