A couple of months ago I started using a new laundry detergent, Nellies All Natural Laundry Soda. If I'm totally honest, I was first attracted to the packaging, the detergent is in a cute vintage looking tin. However, I had wanted to try a powder because I was frustrated with the big plastic bottles and goopy mess that they leave behind (at least in my laundry room!). After reading glowing reviews of the product I decided to try it and have been very pleased. It has gotten our clothes clean and fresh without having to do pretreating. I also like that the soda has no perfumes in it or fillers. In addition, I appreciate that it's all natural and environmentally friendly. I would highly recommend trying it!
