Simply shaklee saturday… Green options in the laundry room part 2

Green up your laundry room part 2: Fresh Laundry Concentrate

{Last week} I talked a little bit about why it’s important to switch out your toxic bleach for an all natural alternative. I showed you the stain remover & laundry booster {Nature Bright.}  This week I am going to be sharing an all natural laundry detergent.
Before using Shaklee products, I really never gave it much thought about using “All Natural” detergents. I thought it didn’t affect our health, so why change? (wrong!)  Why pay the extra expense to go green?  (It doesn’t cost more, by the way). After researching, I found out how terribly wrong I was.  Swallow this bit of information…
 “Detergent is in your bloodstream 90 seconds after you put on your clothes. In fact, a urine test can reveal which laundry detergent you use.”


I found this information quite STARTLING!!

“Chemicals in your household cleaners are linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities. * Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who work away from home because the fumes of household cleaners can linger a long time in the air after use and can seep out of the bottles when not in use. * The most toxic substances to aquatic organisms are bleach, all-purpose cleaner, laundry detergent and dish detergent–even more than paint and car wax. If it’s not good for aquatic organisms, it can’t be that good for us. * Included in the top 12 cancer causing products:Ajax Cleanser, Lysol Disinfectant. (Source: National Cancer Prevention Coalition)”

Shaklee’s laundry detergent out performs Shout and Spray’n’Wash on stains and coupled with Nature Bright, does better than Tide with Bleach Alternative. It gets out the smells that regular detergent doesn’t. 

WHAT I USE in my laundry room…


Anyone who’s struggled with sudsy buildup in their high-efficiency, energy- and water-saving washer will love the fresh thinking found in the New Fresh Laundry Concentrate HE Compatible formula. Its suds-controlling formula is kind on your washer. Its triple-concentrated formula saves money, water, energy, and space in your laundry room. Its formula is kind on your skin. Plus it’s a two-in-one cleaner: an incomparable pre-spotter and laundry cleaner.
Removes soil 34% better as a pre-wash stain remover than Shout® Advanced Action Gel*, rivals Spray ‘n Wash® with Resolve Power** on spot removal, and is 30% better at removing dirt and stains than All® Small and Mighty® Free Clear HE in high-efficiency washers.***
  • HE Compatible Formula!
  • Also ideal for use in standard washers
  • Available in Regular Scent or Fragrance Free
  • Superconcentrated – one small bottle cleans 32 medium loads, the same number as a 100 ounce bottle of conventional liquid laundry detergent.
  • Super performance in a small package – enzyme-activated natural cleaners deliver a powerful clean that rivals leading brands.
  • Two-in-1 product.
  • Small bottle is easy to carry, pour, and store – small size fits on your shelf.
  • Extra natural enzyme power boosters for color-safe whitening.
  • Formulated to help prevent dyes in colored clothes from transferring from one garment to another during wash.

Why should you use all natural laundry detergents?
  • Biodegradable Surfactants
  • Concentrated
  • Hypoallergenic
  • No phosphates
  • No chlorine


 Fresh Laundry Powder Concentrate (which I LOVE).  Its so highly concentrated, it only takes 1 ounce of powder to wash a regular size load. A large box will last months!

This little 5.5-pound box washes 88 loads, 75% more loads than the same amout of Tide Original.

    Jo, Thanks so much. I worked hard on it to customize it to my taste. 🙂


  3. Just wanted to say your new blog look is gorgeous! Love it!

    Love the new lay out! I’m a new Shaklee user, soon to become a distributor (hopefully). You inspired me to start using Shaklee-thank you! I just posted about the Scour Off paste. You should check it out.

    I agree with the laundry detergent! I love it now…I haven’t used powder in years and years, but I was able to get it in the fragrance free and my HUGE washing machine only needs half the cup worth that comes with it!

    Also…LOVE your new layout! SUPER cute! It does seem to fit your personality so well! Now you just need an OLD house to go with it 😉

    Quick question…. Can you use the Fresh Laundry powder in a HE washer?

  9. carodaily says:

    I’m all for natural cleaning products and think this is a great post! I’m just a little curious – why does your source say that because something is bad for aquatic animals it must be bad for humans? It sounds a bit hokey to me without actual evidence. Anyway, I hate the smell of cleaners so I usually make up a mix similar to yours!

  10. Toni says:


    I’m guessing that it’s just a common sense statement that Because it’s bad for aquatic animals that it’s bad for humans as well?? I don’t think it was articulated the greatest, but that’s the research they found for th article. 🙂

  11. Toni says:

    Bethany, I asked my business leader and he said that he knows of some people who use the powder in their he machines but thinks the liquid would work better for you. Thank you!!
