Trimat Advanced Concenrate 5kg Laundry Powder (T&F Loader) $16.99 ($3.40 P/kg) @ ALDI

270

Trimat 5kg laundry powder on sale again.

This is fantastic laundry powder, I've been using it for years and Choice rates it as good as Omo.

It's a bargain at $3.40 p/kg. I have been buying one of these each year as a box lasts me that long - I also use 1/2 of the recommended scoop and still get fantastic washing results.

Give it a go if you haven't tried!!

  • Worried about some of the reviews and skin irritation

    I'm guessing this is not for cold water washes

      You can always buy a small 1.5kg pack to test it out. I haven't had any issues whatsoever.

      I always wash in warm water (40-50 degrees) in any case as I feel it washes better and dilutes soap better.

      I've also never had sludge/soap build up or funky smells in my machine due to this.

      • Yes, warm water removes oil and dirt better, not very good for the fabric though.

        • Think as long as it's not hot (prob between 30/40º) it's not detrimental to the fabric.

          Still uses a lot more energy though

          • @0jay: I agree 40C is fine as our body is already 37+C. And if the machine is a top loader then thats a lot of heated water. And I feel a top loader needs warm water to remove dirt better.

            • @John Doh: Probly true, I’ve not used a top load in more than 15 years, so hard on the washing it’ll cut the life of your jeans almost in half

              • @0jay: I agree, I started using front loaders since 1985. Surprised anyone still bothers with top loaders anymore. Such archaic things.

    Can also recommend this. Tried them all and always go back to this. Would still purchase this even if it was dearer.

  • I have tried this and plain Almat and haven't noticed differences in result

    • Almat doesn't rate as well as Trimat in the Choice tests - still okay but nowhere near the best like this one (neck to neck with Omo)

      • I just reported my experience. Give it a try, 2 kg is $5

  • I think Almat, ALDI's ordinary one, is already doing a great job with much cheaper price per wash

    Almat powder is $2.50/24 washes/kg, that's 10.4c/wash
    Trimat powder $3.40/15 washes/kg, that's 22.7c/wash

    even if you use half of the recommended scoop, it's still more expensive

    Edit: It looks like the Trimat laundry liquid cost better than the powder
    https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/special-buys-wed-21-...
    Trimat liquid $3.75/25 washes/L, that's 15c/wash

    • Choice reviews Almat at 73% vs 78% for Trimat overall score. Omo gets 82%.

      Depends if you want to sacrifice some cleaning ability to save a little bit of money. Up to you.

      I know Trimat liquid does a little better, but I prefer powder overall. I've tried liquid in the past, and it can leave it a little slimy in the machine/drawer.

    Secret with powders and detergent is you don't need to use even a full cup.

    Quarter cup is fine. To three table spoons.

    Test it on your load.

  • Whats the normal price for this?

  • +1

    I tend to use a 1/4 scoop with washing of either the $3.50 Coles washing soaker power (320G/K Sodium Percarbonate) or same quantity of Lectric washing soda (100% sodium carbonate) and set the water temp to 20C so the power will dissolve easily without paying a lot for hot water.

    I then just use a basic concentrated washing power that's reasonably priced - eg coles sensitive

    Prob works out around 15c a wash
