So, a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of having a lovely phone conversation with the creator of Savvy Green Laundry Detergent. Well, one of the masterminds behind the product, anyway! I emailed the company to inquire a little more about the product after seeing it in a Zulily email, and reading rave reviews on Amazon.
Imagine my surprise when I received a very personal email back from Rita Knorr! As a follow-up, we chatted on the phone about life and family and living a more sustainable life with the resources we have. She told me about how she used to make laundry detergent for her friends, making a mess of her kitchen, until one day, her friend proclaimed that they should sell this stuff! Long story short, they've been very successful, and now you can find Savvy Green laundry and wash detergent online and in stores (in Florida).
You can see the scoop that comes with the detergent--it is quite small! I've been so conditioned to think more detergent equals cleaner clothes, even though I know that is not always the case. One little scoop of Savvy Green was more than enough on a large load of mine and my husband's clothes, which means this bag is going to last a long time--always a plus! I love the lack of lots of ingredients....cleaning should not be that complicated! Did you know most commercial laundry detergents are mostly water?
To find out more information about Savvy Green products, check out their website. You can order from Amazon, where the package above will run you about $15, and is good for 108 loads. That's $.13 per load, which is a decent price for laundry detergent that is practically homemade, but did not take me hours to put together. :)
