Nellie's All-Natural recently sent me a few of their products to try. They sent Nellie's Laundry Soda, Laundry Nuggets, and Dryer Balls.
Let me start by saying my reasons for trying Nellie's All-Natural:
~Obviously, it's all-natural :)
~I needed something that would wash diapers well, but rinse out completely, leaving no residue (many natural laundry soaps leave a residue which can cause your diapers to stink)
~I need something that will not irritate my sensitive skin.
~Nellie's is a Canadian company!!!!
~They use minimal packaging, reducing the garbage in our landfills
So, did it live up to my expectations?............ YES! I'm so glad that I got the chance to try Nellie's. I have used a few different natural laundry detergents/soaps, and this one is definitely the best for diapers. It is non-irritating, so my extremely sensitive skin has had no problems either.
You may be wondering why Nellie's All-Natural sells their Laundry Soda in two formats. The pre-measured nuggets are really just a matter of convenience. It has been handy for me a few times, like when my kids were sick, and I was washing bedding all night, I didn't have to think about how much detergent to add. I just threw in a nugget, and off I went!
Nellie's Laundry Soda is also very economical. A 50-load bag will cost about 20 cents/load, plus shipping costs. The 36-load bag of Laundry Nuggets is about 28 cents/load. However, if you have a retailer close by that sells Nellie's products, you save the shipping costs. There are also some package deals that will save you even more money.
Nellie's Dryer Balls are something I have seen before, and I believe they are the same ones that are sold by Norwex. My mom has some of these, and I knew she really likes them. I'm happy to say that they get the job done, and my clothes are now softer and more wrinkle free :) I wasn't a fabric softener user before due to my allergies, but now I can have the softness without the chemicals of dryer sheets. I am a little concerned about the fact that they are made of PVC, though they do say that they are completely safe.
