PostHeaderIcon Wisk Deep Clean Laundry Detergent #Giveaway

Holidays mean family, friends, parties and fun. It also means a lot of food, messy kids and stains! Besides stains, you might want to get something to vomit in, did you know the average wash load has 20 times more body oils and sweat than visible stains? Urgh!

Wisk has been around in many homes dating all the way back to 1956 when the first liquid laundry detergent and ultimate stain fighter. Wisk’s liquid form was incredibly innovative because it offered the convenience of pre-treating and washing without all of the hard work. Before the introduction of liquids, consumers pre-treated stains by making pastes out of powder! Wisk Deep Clean laundry detergent cleans beyond visible stains, attacking hidden body oils and sweat in the way you’ve come to expect from more than 50 years of powerful cleaning.

PostHeaderIcon Aloha to Apple Mango Butterfly Kisses

The options when it comes to  laundry detergent can be a bit overwhelming. There are so many choices that a lot of people just always buy the same brand and scent or  just go right for the cheapest on the shelf. I did the “CHEAP STUFF” and let me tell you, having two messy boys, you get what you pay for. Cheap laundry detergent and a lot of left over stains.

I recently received a scent swatch from One2One Network with the scents of the new Gain line. These give new meaning to making your laundry smell wonderful. The scents for detergent and fabric softeners are: Dazzle & Shine, Sunflower & Sunshine, Lavender, Island Fresh, Icy Fresh Fizz, Hawaiian Aloha, Forget Me Not, Floral Fusion, Fireworks, Original, Butterfly Kiss, Dreamy Desire, Apple Mango Tango. Because I love Dragonflies and it was close, I opted to try the Butterfly Kisses scent. Now I have never kissed a butterfly to know what it smells like but I would definitely like to if it smells like this lol.

I don’t like over powering scents and while these scents are strong in the bottle, what is left on the clothes is delightful. I can only speak for the Butterfly Kisses scent on this one. I would be interested to see how the other scents turn out. That is the one thing I dislike about detergents. It’s hard to tell what the after scent will be.

I know you are thinking that these are more money than you want to spend on laundry soap but take me advice from earlier, you get what you pay for! These bottles go a long way if you use them in the way it’s directed.  I do at least 4-5 loads a week so I can understand then expense of products like this.

Some of these have Febreze added to them. If you have pets or smoke, you know what a nice difference this will make.

Are you already a gain fan? We would love to hear from you! Have you tried the new scents yet? Which one is your favorite?

PostHeaderIcon Seventh Generation vs Optical Brighteners

As a mom, you already do so much to protect your family- buckling seat belts, cooking healthy meals and requiring bike helmets. But did you know that the laundry detergent you may be using could contain little-known chemicals called optical brighteners?

According to scientific research, these can cause allergic reactions, are toxic to small fish and other aquatic life, and can pollute your waterways.

When ultraviolet light hits optical brighteners coating your clothing, the brighteners convert UV rays into visible light to create an optical illusion. This tricks the eye into thinking the clothing is whiter and brighter, and therefore cleaner than it really is.

So how can you avoid these optical brighteners? Seventh Generation makes it easy because their laundry detergents are not only free of optical brighteners, but they’re also non-toxic . In addition, because Seventh Generation liquid laundry detergents are both hypo-allergenic and biodegradable, you can rest easy knowing you made a considerate choice for your family and the environment. Conduct your own experiment to see the difference between your current laundry detergent and Seventh Generation laundry detergent!

When washed in a conventional laundry detergent that contains optical brighteners, clothes appear to glow under a black light. When you use Seventh Generation liquid laundry products, you won’t see the same glow on your clothing.

Take a look at they experiment in the photo below. Taking two identical organic cotton shirts and washed one in a conventional laundry detergent that contains optical brighteners and the other in Seventh Generation laundry detergent which does not use optical brighteners; I think you’ll see similar results!

We hope you might conduct your own test and share the results of this eye-opening experiment for all of your readers to see! We’ll also provide an additional set of Seventh Generation laundry products to give away to one of your readers.
