Nellies All Natural Laundry Soda Review & Giveaway

TO ALL CLOTH DIAPER USERS - A MUST READ AND GIVEAWAY!

I had been cloth diapering my youngest Shia for over a year and recently started to cloth diaper him full time. I had cloth diapered my oldest, Maxwell, but got out of the habit when I couldn't find what I was looking for and didn't really know what I was doing. Since being a bigger part of the clothdiaper group on Twitter I have found a new love for cloth! So I went online and ordered some new prefolds from a store in Winnipeg, got Steve and Teghan (our babysitter) onboard and set about getting ready to "Go for it". I cleaned my wool covers and bought my diodegradable diaper liners and waited for my prefolds to arrive. I was super happy when they came and made sure I washed them a couple of times to get rid of the oils etc.
I was so ready for the switch and after a week of using cloth I thought it was going great. Needless to say Shia developed a very nasty bum rash and I felt so bad! it was all my fault. I narrowed it down to the type of laundry detergent I was using - NOT appropriate at all. Although it was great for our clothing - environmentally friendly, green and biodegradeable it should not have been used to wash my sons diapers.

So I did my research looking for the best detergent for cloth diapers and found Nellies All Natural Laundry Soda - the perfect product - and I could get it at my local green store, The Happy Tree, bonus!
Nellie's laundry soda is unscented and designed to penetrate the fabric as well as remove the odors, not mask them. Its biodegradable, hypoallergenic and leaves your diapers/clothes residue free. Its also super concentrated so you don't need as much so its more economical!.
I set it to use straight away - and was AMAZED at the results. The marketing isn't as in your face as some 'green soaps' have but boy does it do the job - and more! - its like the best kept secret! As I said I washed Shia's diapers with it and they came out smelling - well clean!! so soft, sweet and I knew I was in love. I then used it on my organic terry cloth for some change pads I was making and then put in a load of regular laundry and used another product of theirs the Oxygen Brightener. I LOVE the tin the brightener comes in (very retro) - and I intend to add my laundry soda to it when its done so it serves two purposes. Anyway everything came out feeling softer than I have ever felt it and again, smelling so sweet ( must be because it was now so much cleaner!).

Luckily for you, Jackie from Nellies has very kindly offered 2 x 50 load bags of laundry soda to 2 lucky winners! Here is how to enter:

My top tip for cleaning diapers is to be sure the detergent is completely rinsed out. Detergent build up makes for stinky microfiber!
