The Detergent Wars - Lil' Outlaws Review and Giveaway
And the winner is: Bloggin' Mama!
Thanks for entering everybody, I'm off to contact the winner now, if you didn't win GO ORDER SOME Lil' Outlaws right now!
I am on the hunt for the perfect cloth diaper detergent and I'll be reviewing the contenders as I go. I am hoping to find one detergent that I love for both diaper laundry and regular laundry. If you have missed the previous Detergent Wars posts, you can check them out here.
The next contender: Lil' Outlaws Diaper Safe Laundry Detergent
Price: $15 for 70/140 loads. Free shipping.
Be warned, there are a lot of scents to choose from. Around a gazillion, I think. You can even customize your fragrance strength (regular, heavy or extra heavy) or choose unscented detergent. Jacklen at Lil' Outlaws was nice enough to send me a few scents to review and some to give away as well! I tried the Frankincense and Myrrh and Fruit Loops. They both smelled wonderful. The Fruit Loops scent makes me feel like a kid every time I go into the laundry room. A kid with a whole lot of laundry to do, but still . . .
From the website, because I am feeling real lazy:
A wonderful detergent that is safe for cloth diapers of all kinds, but also great on your regular household laundry! Contains up to 70 loads in a toploader, or up to 140 in HE/frontloading machines.
Specially formulated to be safe for cloth diapers (all types), this detergent contains no soap, no borax, no bleach, and no enzymes. It’s effective, yet gentle enough for even the most sensitive little booties!
It also works great for your normal laundry as well - no need to buy separate detergents for clothing and diapers!
Toploaders: Use 1-2TBS per load, depending on soil level
Frontloaders: Use half as much (1/2 - 1TBS per load).
Amount used can be adjusted to your preference. No soap = no buildup, so no worries if you use a little too much!
Love it. Ordered more. I think I'm going to stick with this one for a while. So far, it is working really well. Our diapers are smelling pretty good, no rashes, no repelling, no issues of any kind so far. Our regular laundry also seems to be getting nice and clean. I washed some ridiculously filthy articles of clothing and most came out clean and stain free, and smelling great (like Fruit Loops!)
Want to try some? You're in luck! I have some samples to give away to one lucky reader.
