Kirkland Environmentally Responsible Ultra Clean Premium Laundry Detergent
"I feel like I’m checking all the boxes with this one. Environmentally, it’s a responsible choice with a biodegradable formula, naturally derived ingredients, and formulated for my high-efficiency machine. Plus, it comes in a very large size, so I’m essentially buying in bulk and using less packaging. Performance-wise, it’s a good detergent that gets our clothes clean. I’ve tried lots of laundry detergents over many years and this one ranks as one of the best. And, finally, the bottle is designed well. It’s clear so you can easily see when you need to buy more. It sits on the counter with the spout hanging off the edge so you can easily and neatly dispense the soap into the removable cap which can then be thrown in with your laundry so you never get soap running down the sides of the bottle."

Kirkland Signature shampoo & conditioner
"Kirkland Signature shampoo and conditioner are sulfate-free, 100% vegan, and paraben-free. They are professional salon formula and color safe. It's the best price in its class. They are somewhat concentrated, so they last long. Amazon is currently selling Kirkland Signature shampoo and conditioner at double the price. People who don't have easy access to Costco keep buying them and leaving good reviews. John, founder, I Love Costco
Kirkland Daily facial towelettes
"These are my most recent find and maybe my favorite. I originally purchased the bulk package of the Neutrogena wipes, but when I was running low, I decided to give the Kirkland brand a try. The first plus was they cost less for more wipes. The Kirkland packs are better designed too, with a hard plastic tab which does a good job of sealing the package between uses. Both brands come with travel packs of wipes, but the ones in the Kirkland package contain 15 wipes instead of the 10 you get with Neutrogena. Most importantly, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Kirkland wipes actually work better and were little gentler than the Neutrogena wipes." Jodie Ostrosky, owner, What's the Scoop?
