SLS-Free: Roux Maison 100% Natural Essential Oil Essential Laundry Detergent

Screen shot 2013-04-10 at 10.14.32 AM.png
I feel very strongly that the laundry detergent we use should be natural, as well as effective. Common laundry detergents, like Tide, have a negative effect on aquatic life in lakes and rivers.  Many of the harsh cleaning ingredients they contain, like sodium-lauryl sulfate, are skin irritants, as well. Thankfully, there are many eco-friendly, natural laundry products available.

We were sent a very small sample of Roux Maison Essential Sweet Tea Liquid High Efficiency Laundry Detergent:


  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) Free

  • Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) Free

  • Formaldehyde Free

  • Pthalate Free

  • 1,4 Dioxane Free

  • Paraben Free

  • Phosphate Free

  • Readily Biodegradable

  • Optical Brightener Free

  • Neutral pH

  • Not A Marine Pollutant

  • No Harmful Chemical Residue

  • No Animal Testing

  • Vegan

  • No Genetically Modified (GMO) Ingredients

  • Safe for Sensitive Skin

  • Ingredients Classified as Non-Hazardous

  • Low Sudsing

  • Safe for Septic Tanks


What more could you ask for in a natural laundry detergent?

Unfortunately, we were only sent enough Roux Maison Essential Sweet Tea Liquid High Efficiency Laundry Detergent for two loads. I was not able to test it on the toughest, muddy work clothes. I do love the sweet tea scent!

New Ology Products by Walgreens Endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World

Screen shot 2013-01-11 at 6.43.17 AM.png
We were sent a gift card from Walgreens in order that we could go to the store and pick out which of the new Ology line of products we wanted to try. I have to say, the experience was a bit overwhelming. I am not familiar with drugstore shopping, and I had envisioned all of the Ology products would be on display together somewhere as a featured new product. Instead, they were interspersed with other more mainstream products of the same nature, which makes sense for the average shopper, but it didn't help them stand out.

"Walgreens is proud to be leading the charge by providing 'Ology,' the first nationally accessible and affordable line of household liquid products free of harmful chemicals available in our stores," said Joe Magnacca, president of daily living products and solutions for Walgreens. "Ology reflects our dedication to innovation, our constant drive to improve our customers' quality of life, and our ongoing commitment to help people get, stay and live well."

"Increasing evidence shows that the chemicals included in everyday products could be contributing to children's diseases and behavioral disorders, including asthma, autism and cancer," says Gigi Lee Chang, CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World, one of the nation's leading independent non-profit organizations dedicated to the empowerment of consumers and the protection of children from harmful chemicals. "Until the U.S. adopts better regulations around product safety--like we do in other countries--parents are left to bear the burden of protecting their children's health by educating themselves and making conscious purchases. With the help of Walgreens Ology products, concerned consumers now have easier access to affordable and safer solutions."


The fact these products are endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World is huge! This is an organization I trust wholeheartedly, unlike the Sierra Club's endorsement of Clorox Greenworks.

With our gift card, we purchased the following Ology products to try:

All of the bottles are made from 100% post-consumer materials.

There are a lot of Ology products, and I think it is great that consumers have a choice now in mainstream stores like Walgreens. It seems like there is a Walgreens on every corner in cities and suburbs (but there isn't even one in my rural county).

Method for the Holidays: Sugared Mint Dish Soap

image.png
If you haven't noticed, the holidays are coming! Ornamented trees are appearing in stores, snow is dusting mountain tops, and Method is releasing a special line of holiday products.

Method Natural Concentrated Pump Dish Soap is now available in holiday themed recycled bottle and scent.

The holiday line features a gel hand soap, foaming hand soap, and dish soap in the delectable scents of Sugar and Spice (Sugared Mint gel hand wash, Gingerbread foaming hand wash, and Sugared Mint dish soap) and the wintry fragrances Evergreen Nice (Frosted Fir gel hand wash, Mistletoe foaming hand wash, and Frosted Fir dish soap).
I like how Method products are readily available at stores that don't cater to natural only products, but it is not my go to brand.  
 

The Good Guide has given a similar product, perhaps from last year's holiday, a favorable score.

Paperless Kitchen: Each Skoy Cloth Saves 15 Paper Towel Rolls

skoy_paperless.jpg
There are major things you can do to help the environment, like converting your home to renewable energy, and there are little things you can do, like using reusable shopping bags.

One of my eco sins is using paper towels. I hate them, but I have yet to go completely paper free in the kitchen. This is a little thing I could do for the environment, which is much easier and less expensive than getting an electric car.

Paperless Kitchen has the solution with Skoy earth friendly cloth:

SKOY is the perfect cloth for your home due to its absorption ability of 15X its own weight in liquid. If you used regular paper towels, you would need at least 15 sheets to soak up that much fluid. The cloth is washable so you are able to re-use it for months. It has a quick dry feature and does not provide a suitable environment for bacteria, unlike a sponge which can leave your dishes, counters and hands dirty and bacteria ridden. Simply, microwave your SKOY cloth regularly to kill germs and keep you and your home healthy.

SKOY is perfect for the environment too, simply by the fact that you are cutting down on the use of paper products used in your home, the cloth's durability and absorption, and because the cloth is entirely degradable. Now you can rest easy knowing not only is your home safe from bacteria, but you are protecting the Earth by keeping waste out of landfills and using a product that will compost easily.


I don't have a microwave, but I am not worried about keeping Skoy cloths sterile. They are safe to use in the washer/dryer or dishwasher.

Skoy is super absorbent and affordable. Bye, bye recycled paper towels!

More from Celadon Road...Multi-level marketing eco-friendly products

celadon_glass.jpg
After criticizing the tiny samples we were originally sent from a Celadon Road consultant, we were sent a box of full size products. If you are not familiar with Celadon Road, it is a company that sells eco-friendly products through hosted parties and independent consultants.  

We've actually been contacted by a few Celadon Road consultants lately. The following samples were sent to us by Lowenna Prestel:
Lemon Mint Glass Cleaner:
More than Just a Natural Way to Eliminate Streaks. Shouldn't your glass cleaner do more than promise to eliminate streaks? Celadon Road's™ Lemon Mint Glass Cleaner does! Not just the natural way to leave windows sparkling and clean, it's also an all purpose cleaner that boasts a fresh scent which naturally repels flies. Plus, safe for everyone to use...Next time, you can accept your little one's enthusiastic offer to help - worry free!

Odor Eliminator:
Naturally Conquer Unpleasant Aromas. Do dingy diapers, fishy cuisine or the kitty's potty leave your home feeling, well... not so fresh? Celadon Road's™ Odor Eliminator destroys odor naturally, freshens instantly and eliminates those unwanted smells on contact. Non-toxic, biodegradable and safe to use around children and pets, it's a safe and effective weapon to combat food, pet, smoke and other unpleasant aromas

Stain Remover:
Life happens, and in your home, stains happen! But, dangerous chemicals and harmful fumes aren't the only option. With Celadon Road's™ all-natural Stain Remover, made with Certified Organic ingredients, safely remove food, beverage, blood, pet, mold and mildew stains from nearly any hard surface, carpet or hard-to-reach spot. Safe to use around children and pets.

Jasmine Laundry Detergent:
Conquer Laundry Mountain Naturally. With the essence of pure essential oils, it takes only 1-2 tablespoons of Celadon Road's™ low-sudsing Jasmine Laundry Detergent to work its all-natural magic on any dreaded laundry mountain! Use in regular or high efficiency washers. Dissolve in water for washing floors and walls. An all-natural family formula, this detergent was originally created to ease the suffering of a child with eczema aggravated by commercial laundry products.

Butter Bar Soap:
Soothing Shea Butter Butter Bar Soap. With our natural shea butter formula, this is one bar of soap that will soothe even the most sensitive skin gently. Leaving your body moisturized and beautifully radiant, our formula won't irritate your skin and creates a healthy and natural cleansing experience.

All of these products are priced affordably. I do like the smell of the glass cleaner, and I did not worry when my dog started licking the door after I had cleaned it. The ingredient lists are simple and natural, which is something I truly appreciate.

I wish the products were more easily accessible though. After my parents' experience with Amway, I can't help but feel suspicious of multi-level marketing companies. I hope the Celadon Road consultants, which I imagine include a lot of stay-at-home moms, are successful! These are nice, natural products!

Mrs Meyer's Aromatherapeutic Lavender Dryer Sheets

Mrs-Meyers-Clean-Day-Dryer-Sheets-Lavender-808124141483.jpg
Mrs. Meyer's has a lot of fans for her cruelty-free, biodegradable cleaning products. VitaCost sent us Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day® Dryer Sheets Lavender to try:

Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day® Dryer Sheets Lavender Description
Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Dryer Sheets reduce static, soften and add a bit of garden-freshness. Our dryer sheets contain a vegetable-derived softening agent and natural essential oils on a new biodegradable paper sheet.

For years, the lavender herb has been valued for its wonderful relaxing scent that's soothing and believed to relieve fatigue. What more could you ask of an herb?

The Real Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer

People are always asking, "Is Mrs. Meyer a real person?" Well by golly, I'm here to confirm it once and for all. My name is Thelma Meyer, and my daughter started Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day to honor my good old-fashioned values. I'm retired now, but I have cleaned my own home for more than 40 years and believe me, after raising nine children I know a little something about cleaning. If only I had these products back then, it would have made our chores more enjoyable. Today, I use my cleansers around our home in Iowa as well as our camper in Arizona, where I go with my husband Vern in the winter.
Our fragrances are inspired by our gardens. We plucked essential oils from garden-fresh flowers and herbs that are especially powerful against dirt, grime, fingerprints and the like. Our philosophy is to make straightforward, honest cleaners that smell good and work like the dickens on dirt. They are also aromatherapeutic, which is another fancy word for healthy and good.

So no, I'm not a cleaning superhero, but I really do exist. And every once in a while, I show up at an event or drop by the office to answer some customer phone calls.


I don't use my dryer during the warm months, so I have not tried these dryer sheets out. When I do use this appliance, I do not use dryer sheets. I really am not sure of their need.  

This box of lavender Mrs. Meyer's dryer sheets smell really strong sitting next to my computer. I am not sure if the scent would be too much for my clothing or not.

Although the first ingredient listed Di-(palm Carboxyethyl) Hydroxyethyl Methylammonium Methyl Sulfate sounds super scary, the Good Guide finds no health concerns. The Good Guide gives this product an 8.2 out of 10. Mrs. Meyer's dryer sheets does earn a perfect score of 10 for lack of health concerns.

Seventh Generation Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner: Use the Power of Thyme!

Seventh_generation_disinfecting.gif
I just discovered a new cleaning product that I love! Seventh Generation Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner, Lemongrass & Thyme kills 99% of germs. I have used hand sanitizers that feature thyme. This is the first household cleaner I have found that uses the same disinfecting properties of this herb:


  • Kills 99.99% of household germs botanically

  • Effective against Influenza A virus including H1N1 and Rhinovirus, the Common Cold virus

  • Streak-free spray for easy cleaning

  • Deodorizes and effectively controls odors

  • EPA registered

  • No rinsing or wiping is required

  • CleanWell Inside™


This cleaner smells really lovely, and like many Americans, I do take comfort in the word "disinfecting" on the label.  It is perfect for all areas of the house, not just the bathroom.

Celadon Road Organic and Natural Products: Discover Your Shade of Green, but Would You Pay to be a Hostess?

celadon_road.jpg
I am confused by Celadon Road. From the moment I opened the package of samples and couldn't read the font of the company's name and white powder got all over my hands (I couldn't help but think anthrax), I could tell this was not going to be an easy product review.   

I went to the website and was even more confused. It wanted me to log in or sign up.  Did I want to spend $150 to become an independent consultant?  I continued to be irked. 

 The samples we were sent were extremely small and leaking all over the packaging. Laundry detergent in a ziplock bag, hand soap enough for one washing...you can see how my annoyance grew.

We were sent the following products to barely try. It was a chore trying to find them on the website, where they were poorly photographed.
Lavender Hand Soap

Get Your Foam On. Excitingly rich and foamy, this is not just any hand wash! Celadon Road's™ Lavender Hand Soap starts with Certified Organic ingredients and infuses them with oxygen to create a foaming wash that boasts a wonderful feel and luxurious lather. Wrapped in a handy refillable dispenser, you'll never go back to the same old, same old again!

Lavender Shower Gel
Liquid Lavender. A mixture of essential oils, pure vegetable oil soap, natural extracts and lavender, our Certified Organic recipe will introduce relaxation into your routine and glowing skin into your life.

Cedarwood Laundry Detergent
Conquer Laundry Mountain Naturally. With the essence of pure essential oils, it takes only 1-2 tablespoons of Celadon Road's™ low-sudsing Cedarwood Laundry Detergent to work its all-natural magic on any dreaded laundry mountain! Use in regular or high efficiency washers. Dissolve in water for washing floors and walls. An all-natural family formula, this detergent was originally created to ease the suffering of a child with eczema aggravated by commercial laundry products.

All Room Cleanser
Multi-Tasking, Mess-Fighting Super-Cleaner. Created with the idea of keeping children and the environment safe, Celadon Road's™ All Room Cleanser naturally and effectively cleans some of your toughest household jobs without the worry of dangerous chemicals. From removing soap scum in your bathroom to the stubborn grease on your stove top, this multi-tasking, mess-fighting super-cleaner will bring comfort to your mind and a fresh lime scent to your home

The products online did not disclose ingredients, and of course my samples were not in original packaging for  consultation. I was sent an ingredient supply list, but many of the products listed "a proprietary blend" without full disclosure. I can't help but think of fracking when I read proprietary blend.

I don't like products that are not accessible to the general product without going through an independent consultant. It reminds me of Amway.

Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite with All Natural Euroclean


I say it to my kids, my parents said it to me when sending children off to bed, "Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite."

Infestations of bed bugs is on the rise, even in high end hotels. I can't help but feel a little paranoid. One solution for a restful nights sleep while traveling is All Natural Eucoclean 3-in-1 Bed Bug Defense System.

In Australia, the Eucalyptus tree is the primary source of food for Koalas. Research has found that unlike most animals, the Koala's Eucalyptus diet ensures that they do not have to worry about fleas, lice or other parasites!

Eucalyptus Essential Oil is so effective, potent, and versatile; it is no surprise that it's the most important ingredient in our 3-in-1 solution for your entire household.

All Natural EucoClean 3-in-1 harnesses the power of all-natural, pure Eucalyptus Essential Oil to effectively eliminate bugs, knock out tough grease and grime, AND freshen and purify your air conditioning system! You can't do THAT with your everyday bug spray!


This product not only can be used for bed bug prevention, but it is also a cleaner and and air purifier.

I find the bright green color of this product a bit suspect.  Also, the above commercial is very annoying.

NatureMagix: Natural All Purpose Cleaner Made fro Yucca


The cleaners we use in our home not only contribute to indoor air pollution and toxic exposure through our skin, they are also very harmful to the environment during production and disposal. Thus, going with an all natural cleaner is just as important as eating organic food for you health (and the planet's).

NatureMagix is a cleaning product made from the Yucca plant. This product even claims to continue cleaning after you have used it on a surface:

When applied to a surface, NatureMagiX employs state-of-the-art wetting and rinsing agents designed to leave little to no film behind. However, unlike other top-of-the-line cleaners, NatureMagiX will leave behind microbes that will use residual film as a food source. The result is a super clean surface that continues to "self-clean" long after your work is finished. You will notice the difference immediately, by the squeaky-clean touch of your surfaces, by the absence of normal cleaning product chemical fumes and perfumes, and by the residual fresh, clean, neutral smell of the air.

This process is called bio-remediation. It literally blasts the blobs of oily goo into their individual molecules, so the enzymes can naturally consume, process and eliminate them. That's why it's not just good for you and your surroundings; it's good for the environment as well!


I could not find any full disclosure of NatureMagix ingredients, which is always concerning to me. I am not saying that the company's claim of all natural is false, I just have no way of verifying it.

I also get annoyed when product names use misspelled words.

My So Called Green Life did some interesting experiments and comparison with NatureMagix and found that vinegar and water was a more effective cleaner.

Green Laundry: Wooly Rounds Reduce Dryer Time by 10-25%

Screen shot 2012-04-20 at 8.46.41 AM.png
Although I should always air dry my clothing, I don't. It is about convenience and softness. Fortunately, there are ways to save energy and minimize this green sin of mine.

Wooly Rounds are felted wool balls. The idea is really quite simple and brilliant:

A wool dryer ball is a felted ball of wool that you use in your clothes dryer to help separate your clothes. Having several in your dryer creates a constant motion that allows for more air to circulate around your wet laundry so your clothes will dry faster. The more dryer balls you use, the less time it takes to dry a load and you can reduce your dry time by 10 -25%.

Wool is used because of its incredible properties including the ability to:

    • help reduce static - wool fibers can absorb static cling

    • naturally soften clothes due to the friction of the balls against the fabric

    • makes clothes fresher and smell cleaner - since wool has the ability to absorb toxins and odors

I think Wooly Rounds are great! Plus, they are handmade in Maine.

 I've never been a fan of dryer sheets. Can't stand the smell. 

Wooly Rounds are great because they reduce drying time thus allowing me to continue to use my dryer with less guilt.

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review would be positive or negative.

Use Natural Enzymes to Remove Stains and Odors from Kids 'N' Pets

41pE55SBxzL._SL500_AA300_.jpg
We have a new puppy, and you know what that means! Cleaning up pet accidents can be a pain, and the smell can be difficult to remove from carpeting and fabric.

KIDS N PETS Stain & Odor Remover uses natural enzymes to work on an huge array of stains and odors. From skunk odors to red wine, this is the only stain and odor remover you will need.

I really do need an effective stain remover for my children's laundry. I hate it when their new clothes start to look dirty just because they like to play outside.

 
Diaper blowouts, cat pee, puke, muddy dog paw prints, bird poop, and messy eating rituals... KIDS 'N' PETS Stain and Odor Remover can remove all these. With non-toxic ingredients (yep, ingestion just causes a little gas) this is one eco-cleaning product that really works. It eliminates the toughest everyday stains and odors completely (did we mention cat pee?) with no masking scents.

This product really does have so many purposes, and it is very affordable. It is made in the USA. It does contain Ordenone, which is "natural".  I am not familiar with this ingredient.
