CLOSED...Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent Review + Giveaway

Saturday, May 21, 2011

Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent with Oxygen BleachI read a poll recently that said 67% of American women like doing laundry. That's 2 out of 3 women who like sorting dirty clothes, waiting for the laundry machine to clean them, then folding and putting them away. Count me in the minority group who detest laundry.Don't get me wrong. I love clean clothes. I just don't enjoy doing laundry, especially now that there is double the amount with cloth diapers and baby clothes added to the mix. When we were a childless couple, laundry was a leisurely chore we did together on Saturday mornings...it was kind of romantic. Now I am a stay-at-home mom and it has become a one-woman job. There is never a day that I am not doing laundry. My approach is to get in and get out, but that doesn't mean that I don't care about what products I use to clean our laundry or the condition of my family's clothes.

I have become hyper aware of the toxic chemicals in commercial laundry detergents since I became a mom. So, I switched to eco-friendly, all natural detergents and stopped using chemical bleach. Many people think that you have to sacrifice "white" whites and stain-removing power when you use natural detergents. This is a myth that I put to the test with Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent with Oxygen Bleach. I think these before and after photos of my husbands athletic socks speak for themselves. The socks are white...they are not blindingly white, but they weren't bleached with chemicals and that's probably best for the life of the fabric, our skin and the environment.

 Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent with Oxygen Bleach Review
Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent is economical too. The retail price of $30 for a 5 lb container is comparable or better than many national brands. For me, that 80 loads in my HE machine!

Buy It: The 5 lb tub of Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent is on sale for $16.99

Win It: Tropical Traditions is giving one Marlie and Me reader 5 lbs of Powdered Laundry Detergent! Thanks Tropical Traditions!

I think I'd try the Bug Arrest spray!

(And really? That many people like doing laundry? I am guessing it wasn't a very scientific poll!)
