I should probably begin by confessing that I love doing laundry. I always have. Even my mom will vouch for me on this one! I love the smell. I love the methodical process of folding it all. And I love that when you're finished you have more clothes to choose from when getting dressed. People warned me that our laundry would multiply when Parker arrived, but I had a hard time fathoming how this little nine pound babe could come into the world and create so many dirty clothes.
But she did. Onesies, pajamas, crib sheets, diaper changing covers, bath towels, and the list goes on. When I was 38 weeks pregnant I began the great endeavor of washing all of her things before she arrived. It was a two day process mostly because I realized halfway through that I was washing her things with our current laundry detergent which was full of fragrance and all kinds of questionable chemicals. Ooops. That's when I first tried The Honest Company laundry detergent. I loved the fresh, barely there scent and her clothes came out super soft. I've been using it ever since. Once she was born, it took just a few diaper changing incidents before I began using the oxy boost pods and was amazed at how well they lift stains, so those are a mainstay around here now, too.
I've spent a small fortune on clothes for this gal, but still there's nothing cuter than a baby in just a diaper. Am I right?
Honest laundry detergent is naturally non-toxic, hypoallergenic, biodegradeable and pH neutral which means it's free of the things commonly found in other laundry products like phosphates, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, and more. It's also made here in the USA which is kind of a rarity.
