I have a family full of sensitive skin, every one of us suffer from some type of skin issue. I have to be extremely careful what kind of products we use in the house, especially on our skin. I make most of our cleaning products myself and those products I outsource are all derived from natural and safe ingredients. For years I used commercial brand free and clear laundry detergents in an attempt to keep my husband and I from having skin irritations. Any strong detergents used on our skin would lead to rashes, itching and inflamation. Although I didn’t have many complaints about the free and clear detergents, especially compared to the regular ones, when we had a baby with highly sensitive skin, I started researching every product that came in contact with him.
What I found was that all commercial laundry detergents, including the baby detergents have harmful and disturbing ingredients in them. When I started looking up what the ingredients were and the scary effects they could have on you, I was not willing to put that on my son. Even the highly recommended baby detergent had fragrance in it. Why would babies need fragrance that could irritate their new fresh skin? Have you smelt a baby before giant laundry soap makers? THEY SMELL LIKE ANGELS DIPPED IN HEAVEN SAUCE, they do not need your perfume.
After an emotional ER visit for my 6 week old, we were instructed to eliminate every product we used on our son. To rinse him in pure water and use only cloth diapers. Once he cleared up, we could add in one product at a time. So we eliminated everything, except that the cloth diapers had to be washed in something. I was no longer comfortable with the choices I had made. I needed ever more natural, I needed as organic as I could find. I couldn’t stand the thought of chemicals touching my suffering baby’s skin. So I researched and I read and I found the very best detergent made; Molly’s Suds.
I chose Molly’s Suds because it was specifically formulated for sensitive skin. There is NO formaldehyde in it, oh you didn’t know your family was wearing clothes washed in formaldehyde? Scary right! Molly’s is septic safe, can be used for the whole family and there are no toxins. There are just 5 simple, earth derived ingredients. You can read Molly’s story and how their sweet stillborn daughter brought about this beautiful little company.
I was elated we had found such a pure product but was skeptical about it’s ability to really clean clothes as some natural products can lack luster. I thought it was really neat that I was able to order a sample and try it out. All it took was washing one load of my husband’s work clothes that are covered in anything from gas to gear oil and I was sold! Not only did it take a tiny amount for the whole load but the clothes came out smelling fresh and clean but not perfumed. I have been ordering Molly’s Suds ever since and we love it still. You only use 1 tablespoon of the white powder a load, safe for HE washers and thanks to the tiny amount of organic peppermint oil, it smells wonderful. I love when a new bag arrives; my laundry room smells sensational!
This company really lives up to their high standards. No GMO’s, gluten free, Nut free, earth safe, cruelty free, certified vegan and made in the good ol’ USA! Isn’t it scary we have to worry about all the garbage in something as simple as laundry detergent! Molly’s does more than just laundry detergent now, see here what they can do for your family. You will be so glad you did! And follow them on Facebook, they post some really important and informative articles. Thanks for reading my first review of My Favorite Things!
