I fell in love with Simple Green products long ago and use them all the time in my home. I love that they are natural and eco-friendly without all those added harmful chemicals. I received the opportunity to try new Simple Green Laundry. That’s right – Simple Green now has laundry detergent! I was sent a full size 100 oz bottle of Simple Green Laundry for my family to try and I love it!
Here are the wonderful details about Simple Green Laundry:
Simple Green Laundry is a USDA Certified Biobased Product which means that it is biodegradable. There are no dyes or fragrance, no allergens, asthmagens, chlorine, phosphates or optical brighteners. It is formulated to work well in both hot and cold water. Which is a good thing for me because I have always only washed in cold water. I have done this for as long as I can remember and it does save quite a bit on energy. I didn’t know this but “did you know that almost 95% of the electricity consumed by a washing machine is used in heating the water for a hot water wash?” Something to think about huh?
It is a 2x formula and I can back up the claims that it is tough on stains. It really is. It is made for both standard and HE (high efficiency) washing machines and a 100 oz bottle will do up to 100 HE laods of laundry! I can tell you for sure that it works great on cleaning my clothes, tough on stains and everything without using hot water. You can save money on energy costs b y doing that plus get 100 loads out of one bottle!
Why I like it – or rather LOVE it!
There are no dyes or fragrance first of all. This is a big deal in my family because I can only use certain laundry detergents on my husband’s and our kids’ clothes. They all get irritated by certain things and when their own clothing becomes a problem, well, that’s a problem all on it’s own. Our youngest’s clothes (our 2 year old), I usually have to wash by themselves. He’s the worst. I have to use detergents without dyes or fragrances and usually have to go for the more expensive baby safe detergents for his clothes. Me on the other hand is lucky. Those kind of things don’t bother me at all although I feel better using something without all the added junk.
It gets stains out really well. It gets dirt, juice spills, coffee, even blood from my son’s bloody nose out. Of course I always pre-treat anything that looks like it needs it before hand but even so, there are times when I may have to re-wash things before I dry them. I didn’t have any problems with Simple Green Laundry. My pre-treating and just washing the one time got them out. There isn’t any fragrance so there isn’t a scent to my washed clothes. Some may prefer a scent to their washed clothes but I don’t mind because our clothes smell clean. They smell fresh. And I feel good about using it for my family’s clothes. Another thing that I noticed is that our clothes feel soft and comfortable without even using softener or dryer sheets! I still haven’t had to re-wash any of our clothes while using Simple Green Laundry – they get cleaned the first time around even if there is a stain that I have to pre-treat!
