Rockin Green Soap For Your Cleanest Cloth Diapers

By |March 8, 2011 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Household, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

You may have heard of Rockin’™ Green, “one of the only clean-rinsing detergents that is specifically formulated for cloth diapers, but rocks the wash with all your family’s clothing.”  All 3 of our mama testers that put this product to the test had said, “I have heard of this product and have been wanting to try it.”  Each and every one of them also fell in love with the product and the mamas mentioned they were so stoked they will now make the switch to this detergent permanently! Rockin Green Cloth Diaper & Laundry Detergent was loved by moms because it stripped the nasty smell out cloth diapers that they thought were doomed to stink forever.  The reviews from these mamas truly are something else, and they said they were happy to rave to all of their friends about it too.  (How often do you rave about a laundry soap to your friends?  This stuff must Rock, we thought!) One testing mama offers, “My first thought of this detergent was ‘powder, I’m not so sure’, but the more I used it I noticed that its so much different than any other laundry soap out there. It rinses so well and my diapers have never smelt more fresh and looked so clean. Not only does this soap work wonders on diapers but it can also be used on regular laundry which is wonderful for my household. We don’t have time to keep track of two different soaps for laundry so this made things more easier for us.” […]

Soap Nuts: An Amazing 100% Natural Laundry Detergent

By |March 30, 2010 |Household, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

Do you know what chemicals are in the most commonly used “sensitive” baby detergent?  You may innocently believe you are washing  your clothes and making them fresh and clean, but you may actually be loading them up with harsh dangerous toxins such as petroleum, phosphates, sulfates, artificial fragrances and colors, chlorine, etc. My children have sensitive skin, and occasional  eczema.  I am always on a hunt for the safest products that touch my precious children’s skin. Even if they did not have sensitive skin, I would not want to put awful chemicals listed in common laundry detergents all over their bodies…who would??  I was actually searching for the “Greenest” Laundry Detergent and when I heard of Demetria  Organic’s Soap Nuts, (100% organic and natural) I could hardly contain myself. But the question is, what are Soap nuts exactly and do they work? […]

Unique Green Cleaning Products That Make Cleaning Fun!

By |August 21, 2009 |Household, Product Reviews|

Better Life has a line of green cleaning products that we think would be a fabulous gift for any hard to shop for mom, dad, baby sitter, or better yet….. a very unique and useful baby shower gift too! “What?”, you may be asking.  “Cleaning products for a gift?  Come on now.”  And our answer is ABSOLUTELY! These chemical free, non-toxic cleaning products are a safe alternative to many cleaners that include harmful substances inside such as bleach, ammonium, VOCs, petrochemicals, sodium laurel sulfates, artificial colors/fragrances, and the list goes on and on.  You can read more about those dangers here, and understand a little bit more why the average American consumes a concoction of toxic chemicals before they even consume breakfast. But I want to spend this review talking about how great these safe cleaners are for your home and your loved ones. […]

EcoStore’s Oxygen Whitener and Laundry Liquid – Free of Toxic Chemicals, Perfumes, and Dyes

By |March 3, 2009 |Household, Product Reviews|

Bleach is often used to brighten, whiten and even disinfect.  Just the other day I saw a Clorox commercial advertising bleach as a safe way to disinfect baby bottles, toys and more. Unfortunately, chlorine bleach is a nasty chemical, which should be kept far away from our babies and children’s environments.  (Not to mention it’s negative impact it has on our mother earth too.) SAFbaby is extremely passionate about keeping harmful chemicals away from our babies and children (if you haven’t noticed).  So, we really fell in love with the intention Eco Store shares with us, “no nasty chemicals.” No Nasty Chemicals™ is the foundation of the entire product line and philosophy of Eco Store.  And when we discovered the magical uses for their Eco-whitener, we were blown away!  Get a load of this….

Is this “POISON!” in your home?

By |October 15, 2007 |Chemicals in Products, Household, Indoor Air, Kitchen|

A friend of mine has 3 gorgeous boys. About six years ago now, she had taken one of them to an audition for staring in commercials. This story is so great, after all these years of hearing it, I can still hear his little voice like it was yesterday. Caleb was given a few household items to “improv” with. They just wanted to see how he’d turn it on, how he’d present the products, and see how he “sold” it. What he did next is what has always stuck with me…. He choose a can of air freshener. With his steady stance, he held up the aerosol can, and with the conviction of a drill Sargent yelled, “POISON!” Yep, at 4 years old, this little guy knew more about the dangers of certain household cleansers and air fresheners than the people marketing them did! Fabulous Caleb, you are my hero kid. […]
