It’s my day off work, can you guess what I’m going to be doing?  Laundry Laundry Laundry!  With a potty-training toddler and a fiance who doesn’t mind getting dirty it seems laundry always needs to be done, half the time I come home from work and start folding clothes straight away!  With doing so much laundry (even more when SAP was in cloth diapers!) I have come to learn a lot about the types of detergent I should use and the affects of ingredients on clothes fibers and my daughter’s sensitive skin.  I now use only all-natural detergents and additives (if I use any) and they not only have to be safe for my family but also for the environment.

One company that was suggested to me to try was Nellie’s All-Natural, and I am sad I never tried it back when SAP was in cloth diapers because we have become huge fans of their Laundry Soda!  I received the 50 load bag of laundry soda for review and have been using just Nellie’s for all of our laundry  needs the past few weeks.  One tablespoon of the powder is all that is needed for even a large load and everything from towels to toddler clothes have come out clean!  I have been looking for a detergent made from basic simple ingredients that is gentle on my fabrics yet gets everything out and this seems to be doing the trick.

Nellie’s All Natural 50 load bag!

Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda is made from sodium silicate and coconut oil based detergents, it’s not only free of all those chemicals found in commercial detergents (even those labeled “free and clear”) but it’s hypoallergenic for those with sensitive skin (a big plus with us with SAP’s eczema!) it’s also biodegradable!  With SAPsDaDa being SAHD and doing most of the housework I had to get his opinion on the detergent and he likes it even more than our regular go-to cloth diaper detergent.  He tells me it “smells cleaner” even though it has no scent at all, and the clothes come out clean.  For him the worst thing is to have to re-due a load of laundry and take up even more time, having a reliable detergent has made laundry less stressful on him.

What SAPsMaMa Loves About Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda:

  • Made out of all-natural safe and simple ingredients, no potentially harmful chemicals hiding away in there!
  • Leaves clothes smelling and looking clean without added scents and fragrances
  • I can use it with my daughter’s clothes though she has eczema and sensitive, even safe for cloth diapers!
  • Hypoallergenic: it rinses clean and leaves no residue behind!
  • Biodegradable and safe for the environment!
  • Comes in handy 50 Use packs or in a bulk bucket to reduce packaging waste!

Suggestions for Improvement:

  • I love that the larger quantities of the Laundry Soda come in a reusable tin or bucket!  I know the 50 load zip-top bag is very convenient but I would love to see a more eco-friendly bag option, such as a biodegradable bag, be used!
