Crunchy Clean Laundry Detergent

So I've been doing a number of loads with Crunchy Clean Everyday Detergent and I am very pleased with its cleaning power and heavenly scents. It took a bit of tweaking since I tend to have very messy kids but I think I've figured it out. What I also like about Crunchy Clean is that it can be used for multiple cleaning applications. I also added it to vinegar to make an eco-friendly mopping solution that really cleaned!
Also, Ashley (the WAHM/owner of CC) has revamped her website to offer shorter shipping times. It used to take a while to ship Crunchy Clean but as of February 22nd wait times will be substantially shorter. I can't wait to try the gardenia scented detergent that they offer.

Sidenote: For truly awful clothing stains, I would highly recommend that you add a scoop of your favorite oxygen cleaner to Crunchy Clean in your wash. I found that this worked much better for me.

Up Next

I am waiting on my order of Crunchy Clean. Crunchy Clean is another eco-friendly detergent made by a WAHM. According to their website, the detergent can be diluted for everyday cleaning. Multi-purpose cleaner? I like the sound of that! I'll let you know how it works out.

Dropps Laundry Detergent

So I have found this wonderful, eco-friendly detergent that gets my clothes clean. Here is their website: . They have scented and unscented formulas. I've tried both and I personally prefer the unscented. I usually like to add the scent via my fabric softener. So far Dropps hasn't caused rashes for my eczema prone kids so that's a big plus! I also have to add that their customer service was great, and I love the fact that their product is pre-measured into pacs that dissolve in the washer. This means that I don't have to lug a heavy, messy jug around when I'm doing laundry. Dropps is safe for all types of fabric from silk to cotton.

Boiron Homeopathic Flu Medicine

My whole family has been hit with the flu recently, swine flu that is, and I decided to try the Boiron Flu Medicine along with the Tamiflu our doctor prescribed. I have to say that I think it worked. I was up and running sooner than the rest of my family and I think Boiron may have given me the edge. Here is their website: .

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Lip

I know a long wearing liquid lipstick and it's from Revlon.

There is a nice selection of shades and they do last. Also, the lipstick doesn't make my lips feel dry. I was very pleased with this lipstick.

Cheer BrightClean Detergent

How I love thy clean socks and undies that one does giveth me. This detergent actually works and it's gentle on my family's clothing which is very important when you have kids with significant allergies and eczema. Here's the website: . I love that I have not had to use bleach on whites so far because Cheer is actually brightening my whites (and colors too).

In Bloom Parfum by Reese Witherspoon

Okay I have add the disclaimer that I am an Avon Beauty Advisor and this is our newest parfum, but trust me, you will like it. Here's the link: . It's not the typical, old timey, stuff you'd expect to smell when you think of gardenia and lush peach. It's actually quite irresistable and sublime. I'm very picky with frangrances and cannot stand when a fragrance is too strong or smells cheap. In Bloom is neither. It has a nice, lingering fragrance that doesn't overwhelm the senses and with Avon's money-back guarantee you cannot go wrong.
