Happy Earth Day to everyone! I wanted to write today about a product that I’ve been using for well over a year now. In our busy household of six, it seems like the laundry never, ever ends. I mean really never ends. There is so much to do and I can’t seem to stay caught up on it for longer than like….. one day.
On top of that, when my youngest was born, I wanted to cloth diaper. I cloth diapered my 3rd child and loved it, even though it did mean that I would have more, yes MORE laundry. However it was fun laundry! I loved washing and folding up all of the cute little cloth diapers each week. Let’s face it, I have a cloth diaper obsession! But that is a story for another post!
I also try my hardest to be as green as I can. I know we aren’t perfect, but we recycle, and reuse what we can. I do not use chemicals in my home for cleaning and I do believe that cloth diapering is good for the planet as well!
Anyway, I have been happily cloth diapering my baby girl for 14 months now. When I got started, I knew I had to find a good detergent that was gentle enough for her and her diapers, yet strong enough to get them really clean.
After doing a lot of research, I came across BioKleen laundry liquid. I actually found it on Amazon after reading many good reviews for it from other mothers who cloth diapered.
BioKleen is made in the USA, contains NO phosphate, chlorine, ammonia, petroleum solvents, butyl, glycol ether, metasilicate, brighteners, SLES, or EDTA. It contains no hazardous materials and is not tested on animals!
It is made with 100% renewable energy offsets, and is a family owned and operated company.
*I also have to let you all know that I was not compensated for this review, and I didn’t receive this product for free. I just happened to find it and fell in love with it myself. These are only my opinions.*
Now back to our regularly scheduled program……
More information on BioKleen can be found at BioKleen Laundry.
I really can’t say enough good things about BioKleen! It has a light citrus scent and is made with grapefuit seed and citrus extracts. The bottle that I purchase from Amazon washes 128 loads and seems to last forever! You really do only need a small capful for a big load of laundry.
For cleaning cloth diapers, BioKleen is nothing short of amazing! If you are familiar with cloth diapers, you should understand that you need to have a good, dependable detergent that gets the job done but that doesn’t leave soapy residue on your diapers. Also your detergent needs to be gentle on baby’s skin as well. I have to say that BioKleen gets even the dirtiest diapers (yes, even BIG poops) clean and leaves them fresh smelling too.
Once I saw how amazing BioKleen was on my daughter’s cloth diapers, I decided to start using it for all of our laundry as well. I feel good about using it since it is so much better for the planet and our skin!
If you are looking for a better detergent for your family that won’t break the bank and is more GREEN, take a look at BioKleen! Below you will find a direct link taking you to the same product that I purchase from Amazon!
