When this package of Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda arrived at my door I was very excited to try it out! I had heard great things about Nellie’s and was so excited to see if they were true. Since we have been talking about alternatives to conventional laundry products, and you may not like the idea of making your own, Nellie’s is a great alternative!
Nellie’s laundry soda is biodegradable, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. All extremely important features. It is made up from Sodium Silicate and Coconut oil based surfactants. That is pretty simple!
This package that doesn’t even weigh 2 lbs contains even cleaning soda for up to 50 loads! It contains a little scoop so you use the precise amount (about a tablespoon). We always think we need to use more, how could that small amount actually clean my clothes? The truth is, it does!
I am somewhat hesitant to try out new laundry products because Austin has such sensitive skin. As an infant, I could tell if his clothes were every washed in conventional detergent or if fabric softener was used, as he would break out in red rash all over.
I have been using Nellie’s laundry soda for the last week and have been extremely happy with its cleaning abilities. To make a long story short, I traded in my front load wash machine for an energy efficient top load wash machine. I know you may think, I am crazy, right? The truth is, I couldn’t have been happier! For the last 5 years we owned the front-load machine, it cost more money to repair and replace parts than we paid for it, NEW! Plus mold was a huge issue and that was the final straw!
Anyways, I now am the proud owner of a basic EF top load machine. With my last top load machine, I would have to place my detergent in first and then let the water start to fill up if I were using a powdered soap. If not, my clothes would occasionally have a gritty feeling from the soap not fully dissolving-yucky!
I am proud to say, that is not the case with Nellie’s! I simply use the amount suggested and it works beautifully. It dissolves easily in cold water (which is what I use). I don’t use fabric softener anyway, but with Nellie’s there is no need! It doesn’t leave any residue behind that requires the need of fabric softener.
I love the fact that your clothes just smell clean. There is no chemical scent left behind, just good ole’ clean clothes. That is what I am striving for when I wash my clothing!
