Give it away Friday - CMonetCrafts Laundry Soap

CLOSED

It's officially the first Friday of May!  Perhaps you remember that I decided May would be my "Spring Cleaning" month around here, and I'd focus on all things that have to do with cleaning and organizing!  It's perfectly appropriate, because it's truly spring cleaning time at my house.

This week, I'd like to tell you about CMonetCrafts laundry soap.  CMonetCrafts exists as an outlet, of sorts, for the creator, Beverly, to share her passion with others.  Her passion?  To change the world!  Beverly finds joy in re-purposing items, in using and creating natural items, and in creating natural habitats!  Beverly sent me samples of two different types of laundry soap, but she also sent a packet of seeds for me to plant wildflowers in my yard, and pointed me to her Backyard Wildlife Habitats website, where she talks about the wonders of creating habitats and sharing them with animals and children!  It's amazing!

As I said, Beverly sent me two laundry soap samples, one unscented and one in Japanese Cherry Blossom.  I hate to admit this, but I forgot to take pictures!  I suppose I could show you my clean laundry, but you wouldn't be able to smell it, or feel how clean it is, or...  So I will show you what her soap looks like via Etsy.


Beverly's instructions say that a sample packet will last for 5-10 loads of laundry, and each of my bags lasted about 7-8.  You use just 1-2 Tbs of soap per load!  I was concerned that it wouldn't be enough to get the clothes clean, but it absolutely was!  I LOVE the smell of the Japanese Cherry Blossom!  It's really lightly scented, but it's very nice.  Not too sweet, not too strong.  She also says that you don't need to use fabric softener!  I only tried not using softener on the very last load.  That load was socks and undies, and they did not come out of the dryer static-y at all!  I imagine that in future loads I would feel a lot less inclined to use softener, but I am kind of a junkie.  ;-)  I really enjoy the fresh, clean feel of my clothes using CMonetCraft's laundry soap!

The only problem I have had with the soap is on my cloth diapers.  I am not sure whether it was user error or an ingredient in the soap, but for some reason it didn't seem to rinse out of the diapers as well as other soaps do.  I had to do several rinses after each load in order to get all the soap out.  Where I live, water is nearly as expensive as gasoline, so as you can imagine I am not a fan of too many extra rinses!  I just chose to wash my clothes with CMonet's soap and use my regular soap for my diapers.

Despite the diaper issue, I really like the laundry soap from CMonetCrafts!  I love that it's natural and handmade.  I love that you use a very small amount.  I love that you don't need softener.  I love it!  And you will too!

When you mention my blog at checkout, CMonetCrafts is offering FREE SHIPPING (a $5 value) on all orders of 2 pound sized laundry soap!  This is enough for 60-70 loads for a top loader, 120-140 for a front loader.  A 2 pound package is $16!  


One lucky reader will win 3 sample sized bags of laundry soap, in the winner's choice of scents!  This will be enough soap for at least 15-30 loads!  You'll be impressed with the quality of the soap from CMonetCrafts!
(Contest will end and a winner will be drawn May 17, 2011 at 11:59am EST.)

Hearted her on etsy (dolphin4176) and I like the Lilac and cucumber melon. I am wondering what the Nag Champa smells like though - never heard of it before.
