Spring Cleaning/Nesting

Sun_Earth_OnlineSo I am 37 weeks pregnant and going insane with the to-do list in my head. Every time I wake up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, I come up with another task to add to my list (actually, usually Fred’s list). When I was nesting before the birth of our first child, I had so….. much more time. I must have washed his layette three times before he actually wore anything.

This weekend’s to-do list consisted of washing all of our soon to be daughter’s newborn and 0-3 month clothing, along with getting the cradle and swing out of the basement and cleaning off all the dust and debris from the construction we had done earlier in the year. What made these tasks all the more fun, was that I was going to get to experiment with a new product line I had heard so much about Sun & Earth.

Sun and Earth makes safe, natural and non-toxic cleaning products.  All of their laundry products and cleaning products are free of petroleum based cleaners, chlorine, phosphates, dyes and perfumes that leave behind residue that could be harmful to your family, children and pet’s health.

I washed the layette using their Free and Clear Unscented Laundry Detergent. It did a great job. I happen to be one that loves scents, so then I did the rest of the family’s laundry using Sun & Earth 2x Concentrated Laundry Detergent. I am now obsessed with the stuff. It has the most delightful citrus scent derived from orange oil. The laundry came out with just a subtle hint of citris. It’s FANTASTIC!!!!! I then proceeded his to wash every linen in the house, just for more of this orange essence.

I then moved on to cleaning the dust and debris (When I say I , I mean Fred, I observed) off the cradle and swing using Sun & Earth All Purpose Spray Cleaner. It has the same wonderful orange scent and cleaned better than any major natural brands I have ever used minus the harsh chemicals. With a price tag of $4, how can you go wrong.

All of Sun & Earth’s products can be purchased on their website, and are less money than most national brands. Trust me, it is worth a try, you will become a Sun & Earth junkie like me, and save some money too.
