AspenClean Plastic-free Detergents - Review and Giveaway

I'm not super vigilant about product ingredients, but have had to be more aware lately due to skin inflammation.  I haven't completely narrowed down the culprits yet, but my skin has adverse reactions to some ingredients and brands.  

I was recently introduced to AspenClean, the popular Canadian brand that offers safe and effective alternatives to chemical-based cleaning products.  The laundry detergent pods, dishwasher pods, and oxygen bleach powder and stain remover, all with plastic-free packaging, now ship anywhere in the United States.  AspenClean products are made with only natural and organic ingredients and have won cleaning product awards from Parents and Good Housekeeping magazines.  I was all in to see how well the products worked and if I had any reactions to the ingredients.

The plastic-free product line includes:

 AspenClean’s Unscented Laundry Pods

AspenClean’s Unscented Laundry Pods are entirely fragrance-free and carefully formulated with oxygen bleach and enzymes, using no synthetic fragrances, toxins or irritants.  The zero-plastic laundry pods are naturally formulated to remove tough stains, fight odor and fight dirt, grime and grease but are non-toxic and packaged in a compostable container. These laundry pods are packaged in a 100% recycled paper package designed for convenience while being conscious of the impact on the environment. The vegan laundry pods are gentle on sensitive skin and won’t damage your clothes with harsh chemicals. Remove tough stains and leave your clothes feeling good as new with an eco-friendly laundry pod that is still 100% baby safe, pet safe and is environmentally sustainable.  Also available are Eucalyptus Laundry Pods and Lavender Laundry Pods.

There are 36 pods in each container of AspenClean Laundry Pods.  To use, toss one pod (or two, if the laundry is extremely soiled) into the washing machine before adding clothes.  Easy peasy!  After using the laundry pods for quite some time now, I've noticed no adverse reactions to my skin and my clothes come out clean.  I'm sold!  

 AspenClean’s Unscented Dishwasher Pods

Made of biodegradable, plant-based ingredients that leave your dishes sparkling clean every time, AspenClean’s Unscented Dishwasher Pods are packaged in a 100% recycled paper container with no plastic at all, while being fully compostable and safe for your family and the environment. These eco-friendly dishwasher pods remove even the toughest of food stains and eliminate grease without leaving any residue or film on your dishes or glassware in just one cycle.   

I personally do not own a diswasher (I'm old-school and prefer to wash by hand).  However, the couple that I'm a nanny for do own a dishwasher and use it regularly.  When I am at their home watching the baby, I will often use their dishwasher to clean and dry their dishes.  They prefer their dishes to be done this way.  I spoke with Becky and asked if she was okay with me using the AspenClean’s Unscented Dishwasher Pods in her dishwasher and she obliged.

Becky was quite impressed with the company's mission and how well the diswasher pods worked.  If Becky is keen on a product, you can almost bet it's worth it.  She is a hound when it comes to "all-natural, eco-friendly, organic", and other similar verbiage.  She goes so far as to have a list on her fridge of companies she won't buy from and ingredients she won't use.  

There are 28 pods in each container of Diswasher Pods.  One pod is all that's needed to each wash, and they are to be placed in the main dispenser cup.

AspenClean’s Oxygen Bleach Powder and Stain Remover

AspenClean’s Oxygen Bleach Powder and Stain Remover is made of biodegradable, plant-based ingredients that gives your laundry a natural booster to remove tough stains on clothes!  The oxygen bleach stain remover will leave your clothes whiter and brighter using the natural power of mineral-based ingredients and enzymes in just 1 wash. Give your clothes a deep clean by removing those stubborn stains and restore them back to brand new.  Revive those whites and brighten those dull colors! Add the color-safe oxygen bleach powder as a laundry booster or as a stain remover to any load of laundry.  AspenClean Oxygen Bleach is suitable for standard and HE laundry machines. 

I did not receive this product for review so I cannot vouch for how it works.  But, if it's anything like the laundry pods and the diswasher pods, I'd say it's worth trying.

Win It!

One person will win AspenClean Plastic-Free Detergents.

There are six of us. So we do 3 to 5 loads per week. One person works for the railroad, one works in a deli and one works in a nursing facility . We couldn't do laundry once a week. We wouldn't be able to get in the laundry room lol

Welll...
I typically just start one ... then forget about it till Hubby comes to the rescue. But he probably does about 5-7 loads per week, for the 2 of us. :) I'm trying to find greener solutions (but that I can afford), such as these pods. :)
