A well-known and accepted issue when searching for all-natural laundry care is finding a product that effectively cleans and whitens clothes without the use of bleach. For the longest time, I would give into stains that were seemingly impossible to remove from my garments. It can be quite frustrating when an effective stain remover is missing from the all-natural products realm.
Molly's Suds is a company that prides itself in providing safe and effective laundry products for both people and the planet. The brand has curated an array of products including laundry powder, cloth diaper powder, all sport laundry wash, and dog shampoo. Additionally, they carry an Oxygen Whitener which promises to aid in a variety of situations including a long soak, carpet cleaning, wash booster, and toilet cleaner. The powder contains only four ingredients: sodium percarbonate, sodium carbonate, citric acid, and pure lemon essential oil. The essential oil lends itself to a wonderful, clean lemon scent.
I used the Oxygen Whitener both as a laundry booster and long soak. As the laundry booster, there was no distinguishable change in my clothes, except the fresh scent. However, the long soak worked miracles on my heavily soiled sweatshirt which was covered in black, sooty paw prints from my dog and had already gone through several cycles in the washer. I soaked the garment in a large bowl of hot water with the Oxygen Booster and periodically used my hands to squeeze the mixture through the fabric. After soaking the sweatshirt overnight, I was both relieved and excited to find my sweatshirt was squeeky clean. If you are in the need of an all-natural laundry product that helps eliminate hard water minerals and difficult stains, soaking your beloved garments Molly's Suds Oxygen Whitener is a great option.
