After totally changing the way we eat in our home and going totally "clean," it made me start to look at other things in our home. Ideally, I'd like to use the most natural products I can. I want to clean up what I use for makeup, cleaning products, and more. So, when I got the chance to review laundry products from the Honest Company I jumped at the chance.
First let me tell you about the company. The Honest company was started by a mom and dad who were getting a little worried about questionable ingredients in the products they used at home. They wanted to create an honest company, that would offer effective, affordable, safe, and eco-friendly products.
The Honest company now sells a lot of different products - diapers and wipes, cleaning products, laundry products, and even personal care products. I love the idea of having products that you don't have to hide from your kids.
The dryer clothes were the product I was most anxious to try. I don't like regular dryer sheets. Then I switched to one that was a spray, but it didn't remove any static from my laundry. These dryer clothes were great. They pull out and look like a wet wipe. They were fully effective. I had no static in the laundry. There's very little scent to them - which I like.
The laundry detergent was also great. It cleaned all my loads of laundry well and my clothes came out smelling fresh, but not overly scented.
I wanted to really put the stain remover to the test. When switching to natural products I think there's always a worry that they won't be as effective. I had a lot of laundry from one of my son's bloody noses. (Maybe that's gross to talk about, but that's the toughest stain I ever have.) I tried out the stain remover on a sheet where the blood had dried for many days.
I had to search the sheet to find the stain after washing it. If you look really hard you can just barely see it, but I also didn't let the stain remover soak very long. I threw it right into the washer. It did a lot better than what I have used in the past.
