Cleaning– it’s one of those things that is never-ending in my house, and I am sure it is similar in yours as there is ALWAYS something to do. Lately, I’ve been trying to find greener and cheaper ways to clean- using everyday household products that are efficient at cleaning the sinks, toilets, floors, etc. It has been successful but there is one area that I wasn’t really focused too much on- laundry! I’ve heard of a few people I know making their own laundry detergent, but I never found myself trying it or even considering it since I am a busy bee – working full time, blogging, and my recent back surgery!! When I was contacted by Amanda Arkans to review the Celadon Roads Laundry Detergent, I jumped on the opportunity- yay, a new way to clean the green way!!

I was able to try out the amazing Lavender Laundry Detergent– and just like regular cleaning of the floors, bathrooms, etc., laundry is NEVERending in this household! I was able to choose the scent that I wanted and I chose the calming lavender- it smells amazing! I love how you need just 2 TBSP. for a top loading machine- this container is going to last me for awhile. Last night I was helping my husband with the laundry- since my recent back surgery I am unable to do it all alone, so we tag team it- he loaded the washer and I started it, then he switched it over to the dryer and I started it… then he gets it out when dry and we both fold…. and on to putting it away- he carries it upstairs and we both put it away– what a great husband I have! When I put the detergent in the washer, he said “that’s all you need?” I happily responded, “Yep, just 2 tablespoons does the trick, pretty cool, huh?” He was amazed and so was I at how great it cleaned the clothes and left a nice smell on the clothing without ANY residue! How cool is it to use only a LITTLE laundry detergent to receive such great results! AND I don’t even have to make my own laundry detergent- awesome!
When you check out Amanda’s Celadon Road Site, the description for the Lavender Laundry Detergent is: Conquer Laundry Mountain Naturally. With the essence of pure essential oils, it takes only 1-2 tablespoons of Celadon Road’s™ low-sudsing Lavender Laundry Detergent to work its all-natural magic on any dreaded laundry mountain! Use in regular or high efficiency washers. Dissolve in water for washing floors and walls. An all-natural family formula, this detergent was originally created to ease the suffering of a child with eczema aggravated by commercial laundry products. Let me tell you, this is such an accurate description of what my review says above. Oh and did you see that it is GREAT for both regular and high efficiency washers?! OH OH OH and it is NOT only for Laundry- but you can wash floors and walls and was designed to help a child aggravated by commercial laundry products- those lovely chemicals that I am TRYING my best to stay away from!
We recently installed laminate floors in our house- it was SO nice to get rid of the lovely carpet that holds stains and the smells so easily- so frustrating. My husband worked SUPER hard to get it done right after my back surgery was over. We had always used the Swiffer on our floors and it just left behind a LOVELY (not so much) streak on the floors….and it was tough to clean. So, I saw that it is good for floors- let’s give it a whirl- OMG it is amazing, my whole house smells like lavender (not overpowering either), and the floors were so easy to clean- just a regular mop did the trick! I will totally be doing it again soon!!
The best part of this- is the price point, a container of the Laundry Detergent is only $10- and if you didn’t notice, you only need a LITTLE bit to do each job– 2 TBSP for laundry, honestly that is nothing! The container of the detergent is a whopping 32 oz. That is a GREAT deal for such a great product! My best friend has sensitive skin and can only use the Free & Clear Detergent so I sent her home with some of the Celedon Road detergent for her to try- maybe she can finally use a scented detergent?! We shall see!!
