Natural cleaning

Like many of you I have been trying to get back to basics when it comes to keeping my home clean.

One area where I have always tried to maintain a small Eco footprint is in the laundry room.  We all know there are many products on the market today that claim to “whiten and brighten” our clothes while leaving them smelling fresh.

I have never been a fan of the fabric softeners and always felt the “fresh scents” were a little too artificial for my liking, not to mention how unnatural it would be to go around smelling like a “flower meadow” or “spring breeze” all day or even on a time release schedule- how does that work anyway?

Well this spring while I was volunteering at an Eco-fair I found a wonderful laundry soap that is made here in Canada!

It is called Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda!

If you use a clothes dryer, like most of us do, you may have been tempted in the past to use dryer sheets. They reduce static and leave your clothes smelling fresh, right? Most people don’t give a second thought to what the chemical smell is? If it is tested on animals and how it is affecting the environment.

This is a great alternative! Nelly’s dryer balls are  reusable rubber balls that you simply add to your dryer to reduce lint and  static. You can even choose to add the convenient all natural fragrance sticks to them, they will make your clothes smell wonderful! The scents are  made of pure soy wax, essential oils and paper board. The balls even have a two year warranty and even reduce the drying time by 25% saving the consumer even more money and energy.

None of these products are tested on animals, and all the ingredients are listed on the packaging.

I bought the full line in a promotional package, and it is all I have used for the past four months! I am still on the same tin! The product is extremely concentrated and highly effective.

I know there is one more natural way to dry your clothes, and if you are lucky enough to live in a house with some space you can line dry your clothes! If that is not an option for you look at this wonderful product as the next best thing!
