Helping you green your laundry routine

Bring it on, 2012. I have big plans for the new year. Probably too big, but it can’t hurt to aim high right?

One thing on my lengthy list is to simply stick to my guns on things like making my home as greentastic as it can possibly be. Developing a strong eco-conscious is a journey that certainly has its ups and downs, and it really helps me to reaffirm my commitment once in a while.

So there. Reaffirmation has begun. :)

Now, on to business. One paradox I’ve noticed since getting rid of toxic household products is that while I do miss lovely scented candles (pumpkin! sugar cookie! cinnamon stick!) and room sprays, I’ve become really sensitive to them when I do come in contact with them now. Especially when it comes to laundry. So I was excited to give Tropical Traditions powdered laundry detergent a go.


Tropical Traditions, as a company, is dedicated to offering high quality, eco-friendly, natural products, and this laundry detergent is one of them. The ingredients panel lists soda ash, sodium percarbonate, and mild surfactants. That’s it. No perfumes or fragrances, no dyes and no phosphates, and that means nothing to harm the environment when it ┬ádecomposes. And, it leaves your clothes smelling like clothes, and nothing more. It’s safe for the environment, and safe for your family.

But does it get them clean, you ask? Yes! TT detergent safely cleans all types of clothes (except silk or wool) in all temperatures. Just add it to the washer while it’s filling, load with clothes, and wash.

Buy it!

    I do 3 loads of diaper laundry, 2 loads of sheets, and about 2-4 loads of clothes (depending on the week). So I guess that’d be around 8 loads of laundry a week for us!

    I do about 5-7 loads a week, depending on lots of factors. Some days I do 4 loads in one day though cuz I really don’t like doing laundry! :)

  3. says

    I do between 8-12 loads of laundry a week (3-4 loads of diapers!)

    I line dry my laundry in the summer, use distilled white vinegar instead of softener and soak laundry in hot water and detergent (currently rockin green or homemade) overnight if it’s hubby’s field gear or an especially bad stain etc.
