I stopped believing in laundry fairies a long time ago; I have a laundry monster instead. A mountain of clothes greets me every morning and dares me to take it on. Am I up to the challenge?
I have an assortment of “weapons” at my disposal:
- Sturdy laundry basket
- Roll of quarters
- Ecover Sunny Day Laundry Liquid
First, I feed quarters into the hungry machines. Then I used the Ecover to pretreat any stains. I like that it’s eco-friendly formula doesn’t irritate my skin. I’ve been known to have detergent sensitivities from time to time. I also appreciate that Ecover:
- uses plant based ingredients.
- is biodegradable.
- Is not tested on animals.
One would think that you would need a big capful to tackle the laundry monster residing in my home. Not at all! Only a little bit of detergent is required. I feel less wasteful using a small amount!
With two active–and messy–kids, I come across some monstrous stains. When our a/c was out, we went out for snoballs and I let C get a red one. Big mistake, right? It melted all over his shorts; but I treated it with Ecover and the stain came off! I never had that happen before with red stains. Ecover Laundry Liquid saved the day! Now the laundry monster is no longer hungry! You can find Ecover at organic and natural grocers, as well as online.
