Claudia's Choices Laundry Detergent Review & Giveaway

When my daughter was born we used the local diaper service in our area to drop off/pick up all our cloth diapers.  This meant I never had to wash diapers and only had to wash the covers and these were just washed with our regular laundry detergent and with my daughters regular clothes.

Then when I got pregnant the second time I knew I wanted to purchase our own diapers (it was cheaper in the long run), so this meant I had to "learn" to wash the diapers.  I did some reading online, took a cloth diaper course and found the laundry detergent I now use for all our laundry needs!

Claudia's Choices started much like a lot of other eco-friendly company's.  Claudia had a baby and her and her family were looking for eco-friendly alternatives for taking care of their children.  After trying department store brands and not finding something they were satisfied with, they made it themselves.  Since then they have expanded their line to include not only the Ultra Phosphate Free Laundry Powder but many other lines all easily found under Eco-Cleaning (Small Planet cleaning products), Eco-Baby (Cloth diapers and accessories), Eco-PetEco-LifestyleEco-Organic headings on their website.

I have used this now for over a year and have since changed to use ONLY this laundry detergent for all our families washing. 

What do I like about Claudia's Choices....
Claudia's Choices Ultra Phosphate Free Laundry Powder is a concentrated laundry powder formulated to provide you with an envirosponsible wash without the use of phosphates, dyes, bleach, sodium chloride, sodium sulphate or optical brightener while maintaining superior cleaning performance.
I like that it doesn't have a scent (I have a HORRIBLE time walking through the laundry aisle at the store...the smell makes me SICK!)

I like that it's not a high sudsing detergent so it can safely be used in our HE washing machine

I like that it's great for cloth diapers and our families clothes(no more switching between detergents, for clothes and diapers)

I like that it doesn't leave a residue on my clothes or the diapers (recommend by Bummis because it's low residue and it's hypoallergenic)

I store a smaller amount of powder in a small
glass canister in my laundry room.  Much
easier then opening the big tub each load.
BTW- each tub comes with a scoop! 
But you want to know what I LOVE about Claudia's Choices Laundry detergent?

I LOVE that they offer a bucket reuse program!

Interested??  Once your bucket of detergent is done, return it with the lid to the store you purchase it from (find a local retailer here) and you get $2.00 off your next purchase of Claudia's Choices (Please note: This program is ONLY for the 3.5 kg size).  What a great way to keep the buckets from the landfill and you only pay for packaging once!  The empty buckets are returned to Claudia's Choices to be refilled and reused.

Isn't that such a great idea?  I think it's perfect!  I really have nothing bad to say about the powder.

So if you're looking for a new laundry detergent that's great to use on your entire family's laundry including those stinky cloth diapers...

Buy it
Check out Claudia's Choices online and give it a try!  At a price point of between $9.49(22-loads)-$129.99(629-loads) it's a great option at a great price!
