Sunlight Green Clean! ~ No Compromises!

With three children actively wading through knee high puddles, sliding into base, and running the playground circuit--mud be damned--I struggle to find a green laundry detergent that meets all my needs. I have used many eco-friendly, green detergents over the last several years. Some have stood up well but others have fizzled under the pressure of meeting the challenges of my children! To be perfectly frank, I am a scent person. I love a fresh inviting scent. That waft of lavenders, citrus, or floral is the brightness in one's day of household drudgery. Sunlight Green Clean has proven that green doesn’t have to mean scentless and dull! And it has also proven what I’ve known for sometime now, green is effective and efficient!

I am a cold water washer! Whenever I know I can get away with washing in cold it is all I do. I know washing in cold saves energy which is both cost effective and environmentally responsible but finding a green cleaner that works well in cold water can be problematic. When I lifted my free review bottle of Sunlight from its box I was intrigued. Not only is it unbelievably concentrated, requiring very little detergent per load, but the bottle states it works in cold water! I was ecstatic! Upon opening the lid my olfactory sense was met with the awakening and fresh scent of citrus and I knew then that I would be won over…so long as Sunlight Green Clean could pass the ultimate test: cleaning the soiled clothing of my ragtag crew!

Sunlight Green Clean’s rays of light shone through my testing. My family's clothes came out clean and smelling fresh. It is amazing that such a tiny small bottle can literally handle the same 32 loads as the larger leading brand bottle of green detergent that currently sits alongside it on my laundry room shelf. No compromises! But don’t take just my word for it. Sunlight Green Clean was voted Best New Product of 2010 by Canadian Living Canadian Consumer polls! Why? Because consumers do not have to compromise clean clothes for a clean environment. Sunlight Green Clean uses plant-based ingredients, is chlorine free, and biodegradable. Using it in cold water makes this detergent more energy-efficient and--with less packaging and a cleaner production process--Sunlight is working to create the best eco-friendly product it can and the most effective.

Concern for the environment is not a new concept for Sunlight. In 2006 Sunlight launched Sunlight Small and Mighty as the first national three times concentrated laundry detergent. In 2007 Sunlight began the Sunlight Eco-Action Kids Awards to support the environmental contributions of young people to their communities. Sunlight has made a commitment to environment which allows individual consumers to do the same.

I love the scent, I love the clean, I love my environment friendly wash! And so can you! Get a $2.00 coupon from Sunlight but even better Sunlight would like one Canadian Northern Mama reader to receive a year supply of Sunlight Green Clean! WOW!To Enter:

  20. I had a pillow explode in the wash! We had to clean all of the fluff out of the little holes and the drain. A disaster that contributed to the buying of a new washing machine!!

  21. I've learned that,since 2006, in Canada alone this product has already saved 224,000 litres of diesel fuel – you could drive a transport truck from Vancouver to Halifax 90 times with that amount of fuel.

    Wow. It boggles the mind.

  27. Ah my nightmare laundry story.. well.. It actually happened 2 months ago. Some how my dad contracted the Norwalk virus from my mum's work [old age home; the virus was making its rounds be he popped in to drop off a tea for her and wasn't told of the virus so he could ahve touched anything and than touched his mouth or somethign lol. oh well].

    My sister brought the kids over the day my dad started feeling crappy and by noon he was hunkered down in the bathroom.. well long story short we all got sick within 2 days and lived the nightmare. Christening clean towels and sheets with puke every 10 minutes bleh.

    After it was all said and done I was up to my thights [literally] in dirty laundry of all sorts wearing long dishwashing gloves so I didn't catch the virus again. I spent 12 hours straight washing, drying and folding laundry.

    All I can say is thank god for sunlight green clean detergent! [the smell didn't provoke nausea like tide and other brands whilst we were ill plus afterward it got everything super clean, woohoo!]
