I just recently found this at the Dollar Store (Dollar Tree) locally and for $1/lb this is a great deal! Sure enough it works just as well as Oxiclean and at less than 50% of the cost!


I was blown away at how well a 48 hour soak of my better bottles came out using this stuff! WOW~!

This is the alternative to high priced Oxiclean and chemically it's the same stuff!

Unscented? The dollar store brand here smells like deodorant.

I don't know if it specifically states that it is unscented but once mixed with water it has no scent that I can detect, maybe slightly soapy but that's to be expected of a cleaner.

They don't say on the container, but some smell and some don't. I open them to see if they have blue specs, those are the smelly ones.
