We in the US know Popeye’s love for spinach and chicken, but here in Chile we’ve found that Popeye makes fantastic biodegradable laundry detergent. I searched for quite a while for a non-scented laundry detergent in Chile. Here everything is scented, even the toilet paper. They don’t sell basic medication at the grocery store, but they do have a whole aisle of perfume. Yuck!
I discovered Popeyes. Not only does it work really well in a washer, the bar option has been great for us here in Pucon where we have no washing machine and are wearing the same few outfits while washing the dirty ones by hand and drying them in the sun during the day.
This soap quickly and easily got the mud out of Wilson’s shirt, pants, and socks after he pranced around in a waterfall and then finished out our hike. It’s a great option to have on hand, and I plan on carrying some as we continue our Southern excursion.
Hooray for quality Chilean products!
