Laundry Tarts ~ Eco Friendly Laundry Soap ~ GIVEAWAY!!! ~ Ends 7/12Monday, June 27, 2011
You can tell this is good just by looking, can't you?
Anything to make laundry more fun & I'll take it. Before I go into my experience with the Laundry Tarts, I'm going to take some info from the site that I think is pretty important.
The Laundry Tarts is formulated by two Registered Nutritionists, both with extensive backgrounds and formal educations in Natural Medicine, Holistic Healing and Natural Health Products. Both have hosted seminars, taught nutritional classes, provided meal plans for weight loss centers, gyms, medical clinics and have consulted for some of the largest Natural Health Food companies in Canada.
Hard and Soft water:
Hard water means it is water that has minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium and fluoride usually from city water where they add minerals for health and bacterial purposes. The directions on our label is for hard water washing. Soft water is usually well water or unmineralized water used in rural areas or lake water cottages. With soft water-use half the amount. Because of the lack of minerals in the water-the soap doesn't need to work as hard to dissolve minerals and get to odors and stains.
Our detergents are quite safe for cloth diapers. Use the same amounts on the directions labels except for heavy stains and whites. For poopy stains and bright whites stained with baby messes, soak for 1 hour in warm water. For more information on how to use our detergent, see our cloth diaper blog.
We've had amazing success stories with people suffering from eczema, psoriasis, acne, yeast and plain sensitive skin. Simply because our formula is very pure and does not contain ingredient that would cause reactions, many people find skin relief simply from changing laundry products with cleaner, greener ingredients for the entire family.
Directions for Energy Efficient machines and front loaders:
Energy efficient machines use 1/3 the amount of water than traditional top loaders making them better for the environment and uses less energy. This means specifically for cloth diaper detergent, less detergent is needed as well. However, less water means that powdered detergents are harder to dissolve and for that reason we suggest mixing our detergent with ¼ cup of warm water to help it along the way. Because most modern washing machines use much less water, this can also unfortunately lead to the common problem of clothing not being properly rinsed and can leave residues. These residues can cause rash, allergic reaction and can aggravate skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Most health websites recommend doing a double rinse, which surprisingly still uses less water than older machines. Use 1 tablespoon for small load and 2 tbsp for a large load.
And, these ladies are sharing their knowledge with you - not just in their laundry soaps, but they have blogs that are jam packed with healthy alternatives for everyday problems that are normally treated in not so healthy ways. You can read about cloth diapering, toothpaste, menstrual relief, greens, proteins, facial care, cleaning products, & no GMO's.Take a look - you'll be glad you did! Good stuff.
Now, on to my time with Laundry Tarts. First of all let me tell you about the scent choices. I chose -
MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP, CINNAMON BUNS, ROOTBEER FLOAT, GINGERBREAD COOKIES, LEMON MERINGUE PIE, & BIRTHDAY CAKE! Yeah! Now the scents are very subtle, but they're in there. I wish they were more heavily scented but the laundry soap does such a great job, who cares what it smells like.
Yes, it works amazingly. I do my diapers on a cold rinse first with a big glug of vinegar. Next a hot wash and I added half a bag to the load. I received 6 sample bags - each bag was good for two washes.
Diapers came out fresh and clean every time. Our diapers were also more soft than when I didn't use Laundry Tarts.
The best part of all? Being completely worry free. I don't have to worry about what is going on my baby's skin, and i don't have to worry about what is flowing down my drains and into the environment. No yucky chemicals, no optical brighteners. Just fresh and clean.
