Detergent Update

It's hard to believe it's been almost a month since I first posted about CrunchyClean detergent. What have I been doing in all that time? My laundry! chose scents for both detergents and I am so happy with both. Since I went with holiday scents, I've been washing everything in sight to keep me in a festive mood!

One thing I noticed was that the scent wasn't terribly strong out of the dryer. It was there, in a "bury your nose in the sheets and inhale and have happy dreams" way, but not an "in your face, smell me from a block away" manner. I consider that to be a positive considering the chemicals and manufacturing that go into heavily perfumed artifical product containing detergents. After all, that's the very thing I'm trying to get away frm!

I love the detergent. The Diaper Detergent really does get my son's diapers clean and I've been able to cut down on my rinses, too. The Regular Detergent has powered out everything my husband and kids have thrown at it, too. Not too shabby considering that includes dressing out a deer and stripping lathe and plaster from an old house; factor in a bloody nose and an upset stomach and I would say this detergent is a winner. As with any detergent, stains will need to be pretreated.

I also love the idea of ordering something hand made from a person; not a factory. I'm not even halfway through my stash and I'm already planning my next order!

I just ordered a full batch of CrunchyClean, plus some more samples of scents. I'm totally loving it! I plan to switch over to it fir all my laundry.

Also, I had a problem with an order (technical glitch, not product related), and the customer service is wonderful. :)

What scents did you get? I haven't had the opportunity to smell very many of the scents so I kept changing my mind when I placed my order. I reget not choosing some samples along with the order I last placed.

My last order I got one of the Xmas scents (either craving or fantasy, I don't remember), cherry almond because I always love that scent, and then all of the different variations on linen breeze (cotton breeze, crisp linen, country clotheslines, etc.)

I love the Christmas one, and the full batch I ordered was Cherry Almond. I like the lineny scents ok, but they're all fairly similar and I don't remember which ones I liked best.

This time I ordered samples of the different BabyBee scents, plus Buttercream.

Oh, and just for the record, I've only been using the CD variety--haven't tried the regular. I just figured I could use the diaper stuff for all my laundry because I'm not real picky, and it's doing a great job so far.
