Tropical Traditions Non-Toxic Laundry Detergent Review + Giveaway! - CLOSED - WINNER: Kari Jasus

Thank you all for entering this giveaway. I do appreciate your time and dedication. 

The winner is Kari Jasus. 

Congratulations! I've sent you an email. 




*******************************************

Laundry. Laundry. Laundry. It's the never-ending chore. Of course I don't do it every day but it's always there, needing to be done. When the white pile is high enough to make a load or the dark colors pile, or the blankets etc, etc.

I try all kinds of detergent to find the right one that will give great results and also fit nicely into our budget. I wont pass up a sample, which means I would jump at the chance to review the Tropical Traditions Non-Toxic Powdered laundry detergent.


It works nicely. My clothes are clean and smells fresh. Of course I use liquid softener so I'm not sure what roll the detergent itself might have played in the softness. Maybe I should do a load without adding softener for the rinse and see what happens after a drying cycle.

It suds just enough and I like the powder. I feel like the powder grains are really going to help in the scrubbing, agitating cycle of the wash.

We just returned from our month long vacation, so you can imagine the amount of laundry I'm presently tackling.

A few days ago I did a load of whites and at the end of the wash cycle, I remember being a bit disappointed that I forgot to put a little bleach in the wash, but surprisingly, the clothes were bright and clean! I felt so relieved. There was just one top that needed special attention. It belong to one of the kids :)

This detergent can be used in front loaders and top loaders and also comes with the different measurements for each wash.

I am happy with the outcome of using the Tropical Traditions non-toxic laundry detergent.

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.
