There are many reasons why I love this detergent but my top reason actually has nothing to do with cleaning clothes. Has anyone else had stinky washing machine syndrome? My front loader used to stink! I really did try everything to get rid of the odor. I left the door open between loads. I used vinegar. I didn't leave wet clothes in it. I even tried those new Affresh tablets. The smell would go for a few days but it always ended up returning.
Upon further research, I discovered that front loaders don't completely drain every time a load of laundry is done. The volume of suds produced by regular detergents acts like sludge to water draining out of the tub. The fragrances also mix with the mildew-y water. The result? My nice stinky washing machine!
So I am sure you can guess my favorite thing about this detergent. Yes, the smell is gone! After about 1 week of using the Norwex detergent the smell left and has not returned!
Okay, enough of about my washing machine. There really are many other great aspects of this detergent.
1) The detergent is super concentrated with no fillers which means that there is less detergent needed. Top loaders require 1-2 tablespoons (80 loads) and front loaders only need 1/4 -1/2 tsp. . This gives you 400-600 loads from a single bag!
2) The Norwex detergent has absolutely no fillers and no perfumes. This is great if you have any allergies or skin sensitivities such as eczema as the fillers and perfumes are usually the cause of the reactions.
3) No fillers means less wear on your clothes. The fillers from store bought detergent actually stay in your clothes and contribute to fiber breakdown and fading.
And, finally...yes, it actually does a great job of cleaning your clothes!!!
If you are interested in ordering any of the detergent of have any questions, just let me know. It is 10% off for this week only. 400 loads of laundry for only $24.30!
