I must admit I had never heard of Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day until a friend of mine mentioned she had won a Facebook giveaway from them. She raved how much she loved their products, and thought all of you would like to hear more about them. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day is so awesome, they had me choose a product from their new Bluebell scent collection, that was released just last month, to review. I figured their Bluebell Laundry Detergent would be perfect since an eco-friendly laundry detergent was one product I haven't featured yet during Earth Month.
"Good things really do come in small packages."
I knew the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Bluebell detergent was super concentrated just from looking at their web site, but I was really surprised by the size of the bottle once it arrived in the mail. I've never seen a laundry detergent bottle so small that could take on 68 full size loads of laundry. I had considered showing a photograph of my laundry room, but it's also our mud room so it's....muddy. Oh yeah, you see that tiny cap? You don't even need to fill the entire thing to wash even an extra large load of laundry. This just blows my mind. A single Tablespoon will wash an entire load of laundry! I normally buy store brand detergent, and I just checked to see how many ounces it is and the number of loads it supposedly washes. That particular bottle is 150oz and only washes 96 loads of laundry. It perhaps is a bit less expensive, but so what?! I've washed about 4 loads of laundry since receiving the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Bluebell Laundry Detergent, and you can see how much of it I still have left.
I still have two children in diapers (lord help me), one of which has what we call occasional "blow-outs". You know, when the diaper fails to do its job and poo ends up everywhere. I have so many stained onesies from these "blow-outs", not because I didn't wash them, or even pre-treat them, but just because whatever product we were using wasn't cutting it. That tiny little cap on the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Detergent opens at the top and allows you to use just a tiny amount on whatever stain needs to be treated before washing. Since using the Bluebell Laundry Detergent as a stain pre-treater, I haven't had a single poo stain on any of my son's clothing. I could prove it to you, but once again I'm sure no one wants to see a picture of poo.
"Smells like a garden. Cleans like the dickens."
Our pets are bed hogs during the day when we're not using the room. Just picture it; two dogs and two cats all sprawled out on my bed. After a few days it starts to smell more like dog than it does clean sheets. Mrs. Meyer's Bluebell Laundry Detergent cuts right through the stank and now there is nothing better than climbing into clean sheets that smell like Bluebell. Oh my goodness do I love the scent of this product. Every time I switch my laundry from the washer to the dryer I give my clothes a good long sniff. The scent isn't quite as strong once the laundry is ran through the dryer, but boy does my laundry smell GOOD!
I wanted to review Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Laundry Detergent during Earth Month for a few reasons. The first is that because this detergent is so concentrated it comes in a significantly smaller bottle. This means a lot less waste. "Concentrated formulas mean less plastic, less water and less energy used in transportation..." The second is that Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products are cruelty free and not tested on animals. And the third reason is that their products are biodegradable. Additional information on the bottle of Detergent I received informed me that the bottle itself was made from at least 80% post-consumer plastic. And, that the ingredients are all at least 99% naturally derived. One last tidbit of information that I always love seeing, is that Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products are made in the USA.
You can easily find Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day on Facebook & on Twitter. Stop by and say hi. You never know when they might have a giveaway, and they actually have one running right now called The Bucket Brigade Sweepstakes. It is however ending 4/27. But, don't fret! Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day is giving one lucky DealPeddler reader a bottle of their very own Bluebell Laundry Detergent. Giveaway will be open to residents of the USA who are 18+. During the duration of the giveaway you will be able to enter [HERE].
