A Fresh Approach to Clean Clothes: A Review and Give-a-way Of Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent!
I know, I know..it is hard to get excited about laundry detergent. But then again, doing laundry is one of those " have-to" kinds of things that give us clean clothes so we can do those " love-to" types of things looking our best!
Tropical Traditions, a company I have worked with before and absolutely adore, sent me their Powdered Laundry Detergent to review ( and give-a-way too!).
This is what they have to say about this product:
Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent cleans and removes stains from your laundry with the power of Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer. Powdered Laundry Detergent is safe and effective at ALL temperatures on whites, permanent press, bright colors, pastels, prints, and delicates in hard or soft water. (Not suitable for Silk or Wool) Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent is non-toxic, environmentally safe and contains no phosphates. Powdered Laundry Detergent cleans and safely bleaches your clothes with the added power of Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer.
With our Laundry Detergent there are no harmful by-products upon decomposition. Powdered Laundry Detergent dissolves as completely as liquid detergents and rinses away completely leaving no residue in your clothes.
Powdered Laundry Detergent costs less to use than commercial liquid detergents and costs no more to use than commercial powdered household laundry detergents. Powdered Laundry Detergent contains no dyes, perfumes, fillers or phosphates. Compare our Laundry Detergent to your normal laundry detergent and you’ll see the difference!
Powdered Laundry Detergent can be used with Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer to provide optimum cleaning and stain removal!
General Use Directions:
Begin filling washer with water, add Powdered Laundry Detergent, then add laundry.
For regular size washers and normally soiled loads use 1/4 cup (2 oz) of detergent.
For large size washers add 1/2 cup (4 oz) of detergent.
For heavily soiled loads add 1/2 cup (4 oz) of detergent and 1/4 to 1/2 cup (2-4 oz) of Oxygen Bleach
For extra cleaning and stain removal power use Oxygen Bleach as a pre-soak or add 2-4 ounces of Oxygen Bleach to 1/4 cup of our Laundry Detergent per load!!
Note: For front-loading machines use half the amount that is called for with top loading washing machines. For front loading washers and normally soiled loads, use 1/8 cup (1 oz) of Powdered Laundry Detergent.
Now this is what I have to say: What a great product! I have always had a problem with powdered laundry detergents as they have a tendency to not dissolve fully when I wash my clothes and leave a residue that I wind up having to re-wash the clothes in order to remove. Tropical Traditions Laundry Detergent left no residue and left my clothes clean and smelling fresh! The 5 lb. container is so concentrated that I have complete confidence it will last much longer then the powdered laundry detergents that I usually buy in my local supermarket.
Now comes the good part: Tropical Traditions is allowing me to give-a-way a 5 lb. container of this great product!
