Sometimes I’ll try “green” products and find them to be less effective than their counterparts. But there are a few staples we use in our household that I trust to do what they say they’re going to do. Green Works is one such brand. We’ve actually been using the products from the line since they launched and have been very happy with their effectiveness. During BlogHer, Green Works had a booth set up and we learned about the introduction of their new laundry care line.
New out this year is a Natural Laundry Detergent available in a original, lavender, and free and clear scents, and a Natural Laundry Stain Remover available in an original scent. Just like Green Works’ cleaning products, their laundry care line is made with natural, plant-based cleaning ingredients without phosphate or bleach. Here is a little more information from the site:
Green Works Natural Laundry Detergent and Green Works Natural Laundry Stain Remover have been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Design for Environment (DfE) program. The laundry products are also dermatologist-tested and clean without leaving harsh chemical residue. The products are formulated using biodegradable cleaning ingredients, are packaged in recyclable bottles and not tested on animals.
I appreciate the clear list of ingredients both on the bottle and on the site. We received both products in their original scents to try out. I like my laundry detergent to have a light, fresh scent…not overpowering or nauseating…but enough to know my clothes are clean. I like the light scent my clothes have after being washed in this detergent. I also like how clean and fresh my clothes look and smell. When my son was a baby, he was very sensitive to scents, so I will switch over to the free and clear version when our baby is born.
As far as the stain remover is concerned, it works well on new stains. I’ve tried a multitude of products to remove old stains on my son’s clothes that refuse to come out….without a lot of success. We’re resorted to using those clothes as play clothes. It’s always recommended to try to remove stains when they’re fresh. I’ve learned that lesson thanks to a stack of play clothes my son now has in his drawer.
I’ve heard many friends and family members state that they’d like to go green, but can’t afford it. Green Works is making it affordable for consumers to go green. The Laundry Detergent is available at retailers nationwide for $8.79 (45 ounces, 30 loads) and $15.49 (90 ounces, 60 loads). The Stain Remover retails for $3.69. Both products can be used in standard and high efficiency washers (swoon!).
