One of the best perks about cleaning homes is meeting and conversing with the people who live there. In one of my latest projects, I met a woman who was very much into natural cleaning products (hence the reason for hiring Germz Be Gone). She was very knowledgeable about a number of natural cleaning products, but seemed to be most passionate about the natural laundry detergents she uses. She said she’s used quite a few different brands, types, etc., but found her favorites she used every day. Below is the list of what she recommended, plus a few more I added to the list that I really like.
It’s important to note that these are natural detergents. The last thing you would want to do is “clean” your clothes with a bunch of chemicals only to leave behind toxic scents and residues.
Natural detergents are usually formulated with plant-based ingredients and/or enzymes making them eco-friendly, yet very effective in cleaning.
Here is a link to a very informative post about enzymes in detergents if you want to geek out for a sec.
Nature’s Miracle Laundry Boost
Nature’s Miracle Laundry Boost – My client swore by this stuff! She has a couple dogs, a few cats, birds, and even humans in her home, so, according to her, they get their fair share of stains and unpleasant odors around the house. This stuff knocks out all that.
When I get requests for removing urine smells out of child car seat fabric, this is the stuff I turn to. It’s powerful plant-based detergent coupled with the action of enzymes makes it perfect for people who have pets too.
Melaleuca Mela Power Laundry Detergent
Being super concentrated, what I like about Melaleuca’s Mela Power Detergent is it doesn’t take a whole lot to do wash your clothes. Add just 1/2 oz. to the wash and that’s it! It may appear pricey, but the concentrated form pays for itself in no time.
