Over a decade ago, I learned about eating healthier and nourishing my body with whole foods, but it would take another five years for me to learn how important it was to use natural cleaning products in my home. I had never been told that what we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in our body.
Shortly after, I learned that many chemicals found in certain beauty, home, and other lifestyle products were known carcinogens and toxic ingredients. So I quickly began changing what I purchased at the store when it came to toothpaste, body wash, soap, shampoo, lotion, laundry products, and even dishwashing soap. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t overburdening my body with unnecessary chemicals in my daily routine as much as possible.
I have experimented with many, many natural laundry products using “clean” ingredients, but I have learned that very few of them on the market actually have a personal story tied to them, and very few of them are certified vegan since some brands contain animal byproducts.
That’s why when I heard about Molly’s Suds and the story behind the brand, I knew I had to try it out for myself and share it here on The Soulful Spoon. Molly’s Suds takes the idea of clean laundry and really puts it into a whole new perspective. Not just full of “whitening and brightening” powers, Molly’s Suds is all about putting the best into your laundry and home without much hassle by using only the purest ingredients possible.
Check out the story behind Molly’s Suds (sourced from Molly’s Suds website):
A little girl named Molly was born in 2005 but never actually took a breath. Her parents experienced the devastating loss of Molly being born as a stillbirth baby. Molly’s parents never imagined what they would learn in the midst of their grief. Over 80,000 chemicals were approved by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and yet only 200 of those 80,000 are actually tested safe for humans to interact with. Furthermore, every year that lists changes and so do the chemicals that are approved as safe.
This creates a problem for consumers like Molly’s parents. Why? Because traces of nearly 300 known toxic chemicals—many of which are known carcinogens— are found in the amniotic fluid passing from mother to child during pregnancy and are found in human breast milk. And guess what? Many laundry products on the market contain an array of these chemicals along with food, personal beauty items, and other household items that are deemed as safe for approve of use by manufacturers to use in their products.
Molly’s parents learned that ingredients found in many laundry products contain ionic surfactants that have been proven to change the sex of fish and Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE) which have been banned in Europe and Canada that change estrogen levels in humans affecting our hormones and fetal development! And yet, most of us don’t think about that when we toss in a scoop of laundry powder or a capful of laundry liquid detergent. But we should, and Molly’s parents became so passionate about the issue that they created an amazing natural line of laundry products that are free of toxic chemicals.
Molly’s Suds has an entire line of natural laundry products free of carcinogens and known human toxins. Their laundry powder and liquid are also made with certified vegan ingredients, gluten-free, and their entire line of products is approved by the Leaping Bunny organization as being cruelty-free.
My favorite items that Molly’s Suds makes are the naturally scented laundry powder and liquid that have none of the following ingredients:
- fragrances and dyes
- optical brighteners
- nonylphenol ethoxylates
Check out the ingredients in Molly’s Suds below—they’re as natural as you get!
Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder Ingredients (Peppermint scent): Sodium carbonate sourced from the Green River Basin in Wyoming, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate (heptahydrate), unrefined sea salt, and organic (Arvensis) peppermint oil.
M0lly’s also makes unscented laundry powder, all sport laundry liquid, cloth diaper rash laundry powder, and a natural oxygen whitener along with other natural laundry products. These products are made from natural plant ingredients such as coconut-based and fruit-based ingredients, unrefined sea salt, organic essential oils, magnesium sulfate, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), and sodium carbonate. All of the ingredients in Molly’s Suds are also environmentally-friendly and biodegradable so they’re even friendly to our earth!
I tested out the peppermint scented laundry powder (since I love all things mint) and I love that the scent doesn’t come through as overpoweringly strong, but instead, my clothes simply smell clean and fresh. This powder took out chocolate stains (what can I say, I’m a bit messy when I’m creating in the kitchen!), everyday soil, and it left zero residue on my clothes after washing them. My family loves the unscented variety of Molly’s Suds laundry powder, their laundry liquid detergent, and their All Sport Laundry Wash liquid detergent is also great too.
Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder is also so safe that it received an “A” from the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning! Made with only five natural ingredients, this product is as clean as you can get when it comes to choosing better, higher quality laundry products for your home.
