I just ordered a product called Nellie’s natural formula laundry detergent from HSN. Did numerous demonstrations showingvthat it is pure and doesn’t leave any residue on the clothes. Havent tried it, but it sounded good. Cost $40.00 for 350 loads. No filkers, only use a very small amount of b the powder. Hope this helps. I love all your videos!

Velvet Lox says:

Great video

I use honest laundry detergent (4 in1) pods, and babyganics odor and stain remover for clothes. I double up on stain removers on the baby’s items, like her bibs, cloth napkins, and washcloths.

Hi Ashley! Thank you for this video, super useful as always =D I agree with you, sometimes storebought cleaners are just super handy and are as eco-friendly as some homemade ones, so why not give them a shot =) for my laundry I use soapnuts just like you, and put some rubber balls and disks in the drum with the clothes. I also add some white vinegar as fabric softener and for the white clothes, I put one teaspoon of sodium percarbonate, it acts as a natural hydrogen peroxyde and it’s also efficient for handwashing =) hope this can be useful =) have a lovely day!

Have you ever tried Castile soap for a toilet cleaner? I use Dr Bronners peppermint, squirt a little in and scrub and I love the smell and how clean it makes the toilet

Darcy Smithson says:

Ashley, you must try the Seventh Generation free and clear natural laundry detergent. It is all we use now and I love it. No skin irritation, no smell, keeps whites white and darks dark, and it really keeps your clothes stain free, and does it safely. Did I mention I Love it? I’m anxious to try your recommendation for the CleanWell brand of hand sanitizer. Thanks again.

Setgoals312, (I think, sorry if this isn’t spelled right) the bottle has things on the label that are not in line with God’s Word. Another Christian pointed it out to me, and started reading the label on Dr bronner’s products. There are other products to use, so I do. I don’t expect everyone to stop using the soap, just I won’t put my money towards it is all.

Jodi Michaels says:

I am going to attempt to make my own laundry detergent I’ve seen different ingredients made for laundry detergent that seems like might be worth a try

Samantha Lindsey says:

Love this! Super helpful. Have you considered using castile soap for laundry detergent? I use the lavender castile soap and that’s been working so well for us. My whites are doing great so far. 🙂 I was using the crystal wash laundry spears, which I loved, but my husband asked me to use soap instead. He’s still getting used to the natural alternatives and hasn’t been keen on everything. 😉

Lauren Kristen McGuire says:

For window/mirrors try adding a TBS of cornstarch with your water and vinegar mix 🙂 I’m sure tapioca starch would work as well.

Jason K says:

I use biokleen from the health food store

T har says:

Where do you get your pump jars? I’m excited to try the castille soap as body wash. We’ve been wanting to get rid of the high chemicals in brand washes. Thank you for the EWG website as well. Just found out that my “green” all purpose cleaner isn’t green at all. 🙁

Nappalious says:

I use old news
paper to clean my mirrors with no streaks what so ever.

A Greenish Life says:

Hi Ashley – I’m pretty new to YouTube and have been enjoying your videos. Thanks for all of the great tips! I, too, do a combination of home made and store bought cleaners and I definitely want to try the wool dryer balls you recommended. I use vinegar in place of fabric softener, and it does help, but we still have occasional static issues. I agree that we have to give ourselves a little grace when it comes to being green. You should feel great about all the steps you’ve taken and all the changes you’ve inspired in others! -Adrienne

Eun Young Santos says:

I use Ecos for laundry soap, and it works great. It is plant-based and doesn’t have dyes or formaldehyde. Free of 1,4-dioxanes as well, is biodegradable, and not tested on animals.

MommyIn MO says:

Miracle II soap and laundry ball is my new favorite.

Jamie Blume says:

Thanks for sharing. We love Dr. Bronner’s as well for body and hand soap. I also love Seventh Generation. Their powdered laundry soap got an A on EWG. I have used the liquid before and it worked comparable to other “nasty” brands. I have also made my own and I feel that my clothes do not come as clean. I have tried a few different combinations as well. I am looking into wool dryer balls as well.

Karen Carlson says:

I love the skin deep app for the smart phone. I take it to the store. Very helpful.

What I love about your videos is that you are so down to earth! A lot of green/vegan bloggers put pressure on their viewers and act like there is only one right way of doing things, but you are really honest and understanding that sometimes exceptions can be made. I really enjoyed you sharing your initial struggle with buying products and feeling like you weren’t being green enough. I had this struggle recently after doing no poo for nearly 3 years, I’ve started using organic shampoo and felt insanely guilty about it. Why? I don’t know. Anyway, thanks for sharing a great video and another aspect of your very honest journey 🙂

for my laundry

Galan973 says:

Thanks for your video <3
I have been using Molly's Suds Laundry Powder which has an A score on EWG. I have no problem with getting our clothes clean nor with colors fading. I also add a couple of drops of essential oils on my wool dryer balls.

Nicole Ernst Boris says:

Thanks for posting!

I love Brommer’s soap! I actually have the bar soap which is lovely.

For body wash and hand soap I found this great recipe, which you can leave out the essential oil if you want but is nce:
-1/4 cup honey
-1/2 cup pure castle liquid soap (found at health food stores + Target has it, too. There are scented and plain versions)
-50 drops essential oil (I used 40 drops of sweet orange oil and 10 drops of rose absolute)
-2 tablespoons liquid Vitamin E (at health food store; Trader Joe’s now has it for about $4)
-1 tablespoon oil (I used olive, but jojoba or grapeseed would be lovely)

For some other green ideas, check out Trash is for Tossers…that young lady is amazing. Her whipped body butter is so good and so worth the time to make.

Please make a video of what you recommend for home smells – essential oils, candles, etc.
