In my house I have a lawn care and landscaper husband who comes home covered in dirt daily. I have a little boy who plays hard and sweats like crazy. And a little girl who, like clockwork, blows out her diapers almost every morning. With that said I have high expectations when I choose a laundry detergent, only because it has a lot of work to do! I was given the Free & Clear Natural Laundry Detergent for free to review (so opinions are 100% my own) by Seventh Generation.
You’ve probably seen their new commercials starring the beautiful actress and SNL alum Maya Rudolph (Love her!). Like her, I love what Seventh Generation stands for in protecting our families and keeping them healthy and toxin free. I feel like they truly do care. Their detergents are USDA Certified Biobased 97%, hypoallergenic, and supports sustainable palm oil. This detergent was great at getting the stains out! Their website describes it as a “Natural Laundry Detergent that’s tough on stains, but gentle to your world. With no dyes, optical brighteners or synthetic fragrances”. And I stand by that. Plus, they made it for standard and HE machines. It even holds up in cold water cycles.
Now I use many of their products; however, aside from the diapers this was my first Free & Clear go around. I have to say I probably would not buy this particular one again simply for the fact that I am used to scented detergents. While this detergent got the stains out great, it left my clothes still stinky. I need that fragrance in there to not go crazy. Because let’s face it, my detergent is my perfume and shower most days. 😄 Plus, smelling the fragrance makes laundry just a little bit fun for me. Because seriously, if we’re being honest here, who likes to do laundry! With that said, next time I’ll opt for the fragranced one. Now the hard part comes….to decide on which fragrance to get!

It’s a gloomy, cold day here in the Midwest, although, a perfect breeze to hang our clothes on the line. Have a good one y’all!
