Our foster daughter brought the total count of our family up to 7.  Doing laundry for 7 people is no easy task.  Even though the kids all help at varying levels, our washer and dryer stay so busy that I almost feel sorry for them.  Laundry made easier sounds so nice right?  That’s exactly what you get when you check out the LG Twin Wash system at Best Buy.

LG TwinWash

Here is what Best Buy says about the LG TwinWash.

If you want to upgrade your laundry room for the new year, there’s no better way than with an LG washer and dryer. Raise your appliances to a comfortable height and get valuable storage with a traditional pedestal. Or choose the SideKick pedestal washer that will wash an additional small load ─ perfect for a load of delicate items.

If you’re interested in refreshing your clothes without laundering, consider the LG Styler ─ a steam clothing care system that can reduce wrinkles and odors in as little as 20 minutes.

While many of these features sounds nice….wrinkle reduction, nice height when using a pedestal…the feature that really gets me going is the SideKick pedestal washer that can wash an ADDITIONAL small load!  What??? That seriously is mind blowing to me!!! Laundry made easier?  Yes please!  I know it’s a small load capacity, but still.  We could get all the underwear and bras through the SideKick while the regular clothes went through the TwinWash.  What a brilliant idea and it does not take up more room!

SOLD!

If you are thinking of upgrading your washer and/or dryer then make sure you head to Best Buy, either a physical store or online.  And they have a special offer now through April 4, 2018 to save $500!! Get all the details on their site.

Thank you Molly’s Suds for the laundry powder and dog shampoo!

 

We try to use more natural cleaning products whenever possible.  So many standard products contain chemicals that have never even been tested for human safety.  Even so called “all natural” products may not be truly all natural.  Molly’s Suds uses organic ingredients to create products that are safe for your family and the environment.   They contain no  SLS/SLES or phosphates, no petrochemicals, no formaldehyde, no parabens, no 1,4 dioxane, no EDTA, no Diethanolamines, no synthetic surfactants, no PEG, and no NPE’s.  I was sent their Laundry Powder and their Dog Shampoo.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the Laundry Powder was the nice peppermint scent.  This is from the minimal amount of organic peppermint oil that’s in the powder.  While it does have a scent it is completely fragrance free because the smell comes from a natural ingredient and not a synthetic. The powder is super concentrated and a little goes a long way.  You only need 1 Tablespoon per load. It’s safe for HE machines but it’s made to be added directly to the wash bin, not to be put in the dispenser.  I have to admit, this took some getting used to.  Several times, I added it to the dispenser and had to scoop it back out.  Now that I’ve gotten used to it, it’s no big deal.  With 5 boys, I need a laundry powder that’s strong enough to deal with lots of dirt. Molly’s suds did the job!  The boys clothes came out clean and smelling good.  It even worked on an outfit that Little Miss had a blow out in!  Two of my kids have sensitive skin and Molly’s Suds didn’t bother them at all.  It’s nice to have one detergent that works for the whole family, including the baby.

Next, we tried out the Dog Shampoo.

Molly’s Suds Dog Shampoo  is gentle to the skin and coat. It contains essential oils of lavender and peppermint to naturally nourish the coat and repel fleas.  Our dogs can get pretty stinky so I was curious to see if this would work on them.  My hubby put Maggie in the tub and went to work.  It’s non-sudsing so there was no lather.  You just work in into their coat from head to tail, wait a few minutes and then rinse.  With sudsing shampoos, it can take a while to fully rinse off.  Molly’s Suds rinsed off quickly.  We got her out of the tub and toweled her off.  She smelled SO much better and her coat looked really nice!  It was shiny and soft.  I was truly impressed!  Plus, I love the fact that it’s completely safe for my dogs and they can even lick it!

In addition to the laundry powder and dog shampoo, Molly’s Suds also offers wool dryer balls and All sport which is designed to wash sports wear and equipment.

One lucky reader will win a bag of Laundry Powder and a set of Dryer Balls!

We do A LOT of laundry in our house.  If I don’t do at least 2 loads every day, the mountain of clothes quickly grows to the point where my youngest children can easily get lost in it!  Several of my kids have sensitive skin though so I have to be careful about the detergent I use.  I used to pick my detergent based on how it smelled.  But then I realized that the same ingredients that gave it that smell, were also irritating my kids’ skin.  Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda is non toxic and hypoallergenic.  It contains only Sodium Silicate, Coconut oil based surfactants.

I was eager to try it out and see how well it worked.  The bag I received said it did 50 loads and honestly I was skeptical because the bag wasn’t that big.  However, since it’s super concentrated, you only need 1 Tablespoon per load, even for large ones!  So, I used the included scoop to add some to my machine and ran a normal cycle. When they were done, I put most of the clothes in the dryer and hung up a few items.  I was happy to find that the clothes came out clean, and feeling really soft.  Usually the clothes that I lay flat to dry or hang up tend to be a little stiff.  Not this time!  The shirts I hung up were just as soft as the items I put in the dryer.  I loved this!  I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can start hanging my clothes outside to dry and with Nellie’s laundry soda, the clothes will still be soft.  I like that I can use this laundry soda on all my kids’ clothes, even Little Miss’s.

Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda is safe for all machine, including HE washers and the 50 load bag retails for $9.99.  One lucky reader will win a bag for themselves!
