Green Works Natural Laundry Detergent {A Winey Mommy Review}

I was recently given the opportunity to review Green Works Natural Laundry Detergent and Stain Remover.

Being interested in the environment and choosing products that are not harmful to use in my household, I was intrigued to try them out for myself.  As a mom to two little girls, the stains are never a problem for me to have to hunt down and treat!

I tested the Green Works Natural Laundry Detergent and Stain Remover on an all white dish cloth that had been used to clean up a coffee spill in my kitchen. 

I have to admit when I was using the stain remover and pouring in the detergent liquid into my washing machine {by the way, you can use the detergent in ALL machines, to include he machines} that I was doubtful.  How can something natural without chemicals  remove a coffee stain from a white dish cloth?

Into the washing machine it went.  I waited for the cycle to be done and then dried it so I wouldn't be tempted to try and remove the stain a second time in case the first wash didn't take care of it.

I took it out of the dryer...and...the stain?  Was gone!  No kidding.  I was impressed with the ability of the cleansers to remove the coffee stain.

The only drawback to the product, in my opinion, was that my clothes don't have the "clean" smell that I normally get and look forward to.  I know that the clean smell is due to the chemicals in other products, so I understand why the Green Works don't smell the same.

But that was the only drawback that I experienced.

Bottom line: if you are looking for a safe alternative to wash your clothes and get rid of stains?  I recommend Green Works Laundry Detergent and Cleaners.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Clorox Green Works and received a bottle of Green Works Natural Detergent and Stain Remover to facilitate my review and a $20 thank-you gift certificate.

Sounds great. As someone who suffers from eczema...i am forced into using laundry products without that "smell," so this sounds like it would be perfect for me! Thanks for the review xo
