The Best Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergents…and some to Avoid

What do eco-friendly laundry detergents have to do with potty training? Well, way back in time I had a boy who was completely potty trained except for one small hitch.  The occasional bed wetting and a diaper request to stand in a corner and poop. For real. This is where my foray into eco-friendly laundry detergents began.  I did not have a glorious sunny moment full of lavender scented dreams when I decided to look into cloth diapers.  I had an economical moment where I realized I was literally buying something for my son to poop in and throw away.  And, I thought to myself, that is a gigantic waste of money! Then I fell down the cloth diapering rabbit hole.  It is a world in and of itself and could easily take over this post about finding the best eco-friendly laundry detergents.  So, I will not digress but to say that cloth diapers have their own unique laundering needs and most eco-friendly laundry detergents are appropriate to use with cloth diapers. Me being me did not feel like messing with multiple detergents so the entire family’s laundry switched.  Turns out, updating the family to eco-friendly laundry detergents was a good choice
