I decided to try Sun detergent for the first time in November 2013 and ended up with a load of ruined laundry (I've had my washing machine for three years and have never had this problem before). I contacted the help hotline and was instructed to send them an itemized list of damages along with the bottle of detergent. After over three months of terrible customer service, unreturned calls, and empty promises I can definitively say I will NEVER buy any sun products again and will readily advise others accordingly.
