I've already told you all of my allergy to Tide detergent. I have been since birth or at least as far as I remember. My father and sister are also allergic. If I wear clothes that have been washed in Tide I break out in hives or worse if I sleep in a bed that has been washed in Tide I have a severely hard time breathing throughout the night and into the next day on top of the hives. So for the majority of my life I have been very picky about the types of detergents I choose to use. Five years ago I bought my first front loader which initially proposed an issue since Tide was the main supplier of HE Detergent. I was forced to explore other brands as well as stock up when I found them to avoid having a reaction. Over the course of the last couple years I have tried to transition my family into a much greener world and one of those ways meant making my own cleaners at home (laundry detergent most specifically). I know first hand how harmful some of the every day chemicals we use in our homes can be. Biokleen is a well known name in the green friendly world which is why I was anxious to give it a try.
Biokleen's laundry formula is Phosphate and Chlorine free, made with Grapefruit Seed & Orange Peel Extracts. "Biokleen All-Temperature Citrus Laundry Liquid removes the toughest dirt, grease, stains and odors, yet is gentle enough for cloth diapers, delicate fabrics and hand-washables. It will rinse clean, without leaving residue on clothes that can irritate skin or ruin fabrics." The All-Temperature Citrus Laundry Liquid can also be used as a pre-treat and is safe for high-efficiency washers.
Cost: $6.56 32oz./32 loads
Available to purchase: Biokleen or you can bring up a store locator to find the nearest store to you where the products are available.
Recommendation: The cost isn't bad for such a safe and healthy product for both the environment and your family. There are also coupons available here for several of their products. I love this company and their beliefs.
