My clothes never smell pretty, but I don't want to spend a stupid amount of money on some liquid chemicals...
So what do you wash your clothes with? And then what do you use for stains / brighten whites etc?

I use earth choice laundry concentrate and earth choice pure eucalyptus wool and delicates (even if I'm not washing wool or delicates), both are on the inexpensive side. They mainly smell clean with a touch of eucalyptus. I wash darks and lights separately.
If there are stains I use vanish napisan but don't use it much only for sweat stains on collars, oil or food stains.

I buy a big bulk bucket of omo which lasts a couple months and I soak with Aldi brand soaker (cheap and really really works!)
And same wash darks and lights and towels separately.

Usually earth choice but am now trialing and erroring with different ones to see what i like better. I love omo but only use it on school uniforms as its too expensive for me to use on a daily basis.

I wash our clothes with Euca brand detergent. When wet, they have a mild eucalyptus smell which is gone when they are dry. I don't want our clothes perfumed, I have found perfumes tend to irritate dh's and one of my children's skin.
I soak in Sard with a degreaser, but that is because of dh's job which sees him get grease on his clothes. For most other stains, particularly on whites, the combination of the economy cycle in my machine, which runs for 4hours overnight, and the sun when I line dry, get's things super white and bright.
