Laundry. When you hear that word. How do you feel?
There’s four people in my house and I’m appalled at how much laundry I have each week. Have you seen that meme that’s around about how a Mom gets all the laundry done but then she realizes her family is walking around in clothes of course and therefore it means at days end there will be more laundry in those hampers? Yeah, I feel that deep
Let’s chat about your Laundry Soap for a second. Ever flipped that bottle over and googled those ingredients on the bottle? I have! You should too! I had a close friend many years ago move back home with her parents and started using their laundry soap which is still currently (and maddeningly if I might add the top seller in the US). She started having these really weird skin rashes all over her body. It was awful, she was itchy and red and just felt awful! They couldn’t figure out what it was…even after many doctors appointments. She switched all of her products. Nothing changed. She was still the red, itchy skin girl Then, she decided to switch laundry soap to an all-natural option (in fact the one I use) and BAM within days no more red itchy skin!
The scary part here is that not everyone has a reaction you can see, oftentimes laundry soap chemicals show up differently in our body like in asthma, eczema, autoimmune issues and more. It’s So freaking annoying to have to read every damn label to make sure what I’m buying isn’t going to cause more harm than good to my families health. If you feel this way too, I got you. I found an easy button in all that reading labels stuff and you I’ll share it with you too here.
Did you know if you live in the European Union, 1328 chemicals are banned. That means they can’t be used in personal care or food products. Here in the good old USA, our government has only banned 11. See something wrong with that? Yep, me too! Are you upset about that? Yep, me too! Let’s feel that fire in our bellies and do something about it!
Wonder why Cancer, Auto-immune issues, allergies and hormone imbalances are so much more prevalent today than even 20 years ago? It’s because our chemical exposure everyday. We eat, use or breathe in chemicals from our food or products used within our homes. Check out the Documentary STINK on Netflix, its eye opening.
My Easy button on laundry is for everyone. Because while laundry might not be anyone’s favorite chore, it’s gotta be done and we might as well save some of our precious time and money while we do it.
One of the zillion reasons I love this is because its super concentrated that means a little goes a long ways. In fact, I make 3, 32oz bottles of laundry soap out of the one 32 oz bottle that comes right to my door. How’s that for saving some money?!? Oh yeah and I only use one pump for each load. Here are the 32 oz pump bottles I use, https://amzn.to/3jkwx1h
Everything we use in our household, including laundry soap gets into our body. How many of us wash our clothes in chemicals that we cannot pronounce?
Separate your laundry soap equally into (3) 32oz pump bottles.
Fill (slowly) with water, gently shake until evenly distributed.
Use 2-5 pumps per large load.
(That’s $7.80 per bottle - ~64 loads each, which means one bottle of the Thieves laundry detergent can do up to 192 loads after diluting!
Can’t beat it that price anywhere, plus it's 100% safe for you and your family! Total win.
