Finally! I have found the detergent for all our family’s needs. I really did not think it would be this frustrating and expensive.
Until recently I had no reason to find a new detergent. But after seeking allergy tests for my daughter’s eczema on her thighs I discovered that she was allergic to Tide.
Removing Tide from my house was something I “knew” I needed to do. Our house is 80-90% natural and laundry detergent was one thing I hadn’t changed.
I experimented with Ecover laundry detergent but was not happy with it’s performance. My clothes and diapers never seemed to get clean. This is certainly a problem when your laundry contains biological wastes!
I contemplated buying Mrs. Meyers but the cost was a big hang-up for me. A couple of weeks ago, however, I happened upon a post on Diaperswappers. A mom was advertising her natural laundry detergent.
The detergent, Crunchy Clean, is available in regular and cloth diaper formulas. And the list of scents is long! I purchased peppermint regular formula and received in the mail 2 days later.
I can not tell you how fabulous this recipe is. The fragrance is practically edible. And all my laundry smells and looks clean.
Not only is it the best smelling detergent I have ever seen it is gray water safe. That means that it is completely safe to use the water on plants. So if you do a sink/container wash you can recycle the water and not kill your plants! Crunchy Clean is environmentally friendly and….
It has an awesome price tag! This is my favorite part. For 68 loads of laundry it costs $8.00 plus Priority shipping charges. You can buy it with a glass container but that increases the price and shipping. It comes in a Ziploc bag that I keep on the dryer.
I suppose you could also say it takes the place of my artificial room deodorizers, too! If I walk in my kitchen or pantry all I smell is peppermint.
Can I add one more reason why you should buy Crunchy Clean??? It’s made by a work-at-home mom(wahm)! I love being able to support a mom over a massive company any day!
I don’t know the mom behind Crunchy Clean but I know I’ll be ordering some gardenia scent very soon.
