What a beautiful Saturday morning we are having here in NC! Soccer games started this morning along with swim practice. We are outside “getting busy living” 🙂
Later today, I’ll be washing jerseys and swim suits, towels, and other laundry, so I wanted to share a more natural alternative for laundry detergent.
For years, I used the basic brands of laundry detergent (Tide, Gain, All, etc.), but I never knew that my detergent choices could be associated with my children’s dry skin and eczema. Our dermatologist suggested we stop using dryer sheets. This helped to calm their skin….a little. I also used our dermatologist’s recommendation to switch to a fragrance free, dye-free laundry detergent. We used the All Free and Clear brand for a long time. I was happy to not have fragrances or dyes in our clothes. Unfortunately, we still had dry skin, though the kids’ eczema seemed to calm down a little more.
It wasn’t until I tried Shaklee Get Clean Fresh Laundry detergent that my children didn’t have their normal scaly skin (usually on their elbows, knees and calves). I’ve been very happy using this detergent for all of our clothes. So, today’s Swap Out idea is switching out regular laundry detergent for Non-Toxic, Fragrance Free Shaklee Get Clean Fresh Laundry detergent. It is a Two-For-One concentrate that doesn’t just outperform leading detergents, but it also out-removes big-name spot removers. And it does it in both high efficiency and standard washers – while protecting natural resources. How’s that for a breath of fresh laundry? (See additional laundry tip below)
The clean credentials of Shaklee Get Clean Fresh Laundry are:
- No fragrance
- Concentrated (I only need 1 oz. per load)
- No phosphates
- No chlorine
For more information on Shaklee Get Clean Fresh Laundry detergent, go to: http://evarumble.myshaklee.com/us/en/products.php?sku=00066.
You can also find the Shaklee fabric softener, dryer sheets, and laundry booster/stain remover here: http://evarumble.myshaklee.com/us/en/category.php?main_cat=HomeCare&sub_cat=GetCleanLaundry. All of these laundry items are fragrance free and dye free.
***Additional tip: every few months, clean out detergent and dirt build up in your washer but filling your machine’s liquid dispenser with pure vinegar. Choose the 1 hour HOT cycle (whitest whites cycle). After this cycle, run a Rinse and Spin cycle.
Have a happy and healthy Saturday!
