Greenworks for the Laundry

I have found myself using less chemicals around the house since I have had my daughter three years ago not only for health reasons but also for the environment. I wanted to make sure the items she touched in our home were clean but also not toxic. For some of the cleaning products, I have chosen Green Works and was satisfied with the use, smell and results. Green Works has expanded their line to include the laundry room....a chore I am very particular with on what I use to clean clothes.

Laundry seems to be never ending every week. I generally do not like to have any smell to the laundry detergent and hang my clothes out on the line as much as I can instead of using the dryer saving electricity and I just love the smell of laundry on the line. This is pretty difficult in the winter time as the jeans can stand on their own! I was given the opportunity to try Green Works Laundry Detergent and Stain Remover as an alternative to my generic detergent. What I found was with less you get more! I used the recommended amount stated on the bottle and for the tough stains like spaghetti night on my daughter's shirt. Green Works did the job and here is the other important point.....I really like the smell! It is a very light floral/citrus scent, not harsh at all. Pleasant enough to the alternative of hanging it out on the line! I also feel good about the product since it is natural plant based detergent recognized by the EPA as safe for families.

Green Works Detergent and Stain Remover has made my laundry chore a little more pleasant and peace of mind with use of a safer chemical for my family and the environment.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Clorox Green Works and received a bottle of Green Works Natural Detergent and Stain Remover to facilitate my review and a $20 thank-you gift certificate."

Here are a couple tips if you are going to dry those jeans on a clothes drying rack in the winter to keep saving money. If you give them a vigorous shake before you hang them it helps to keep them soft. If your home and awake while they are drying move them at least once during the drying process. I get in the habit of just picking a different pair off my rack every time I go through the living room, which is where I keep it. Pick a pair off the rack. Give it a shake and re-hang it. I have jeans that are almost as good as summer clothes lined dried.
