Hey ya’ll! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far, I know that for me… I’m currently knee deep in laundry because I let my daily routine get out of wack. As a mom of four, between the kids, Derrek and myself I have found that if I wash and dry two loads of laundry a day then I can stay on top of things. Now that Nolan and Harper are older, I’ve actually made it a point to get them involved with our laundry and they fold towels, put away their pants and underwear, match socks and hang up their shirts. THIS has been so, so, so helpful! If you have any more tips for laundry, I would love to hear them.
When it comes to laundry products, I started switching to safer when my first child, Nolan was born. I was a first time mom and had been gifted several “baby detergent” bottles from friends and family. Little did I know that the line that’s promoted specifically for sensitive skin and newborn babies was filled with super toxic stuff. He ended up getting baby eczema which most pediatrians will share is “common” now but it’s actually a common side effect to certain ingredients in our laundry detergents and fabric softeners. You can read all about what is in mainstream laundry detergents and fabric softeners by clicking here.
It’s taken me six years and a lot of trial and error to find what works best for my family (aka, my very picky husband). But I am happy to say that Molly’s Suds has been a HUGE game changer for my laundry. Not only does it keep our clothes super clean and smelling great without the toxic ingredients, none of us have had a reaction to it. We’ve used the same laundry detergent for almost a year and I haven’t needed/wanted to switch to anything else. My husband is SO picky when it comes to what products we use from deodorants to laundry detergents, that man has the final say! I can say with 100% honesty that he LOVES Molly’s Suds as much as I do. He has an issue with his gym clothes being stinky but with Molly’s Suds it takes all of that away! I use the blue bag for our regular loads of laundry and the yellow bag for whites. I would say a regular sized bag lasts us two months so it’s honestly not that more expensive for me price wise as other brands.
I also love their wool dryer balls and I use them every time I dry our laundry. Wool dryer balls are great because they reduce drying time, static and toxic chemicals that are omitted into the air through the dryer vent. I recently started using their dark wool dryer balls for the dark loads of laundry that I dry and I LOVE them too! You can also put a few drops of your favorite essential oil blends on them to create your own smell on your clothes. I love using ON GUARD or CITRUS BLISS on our clothes.
