Just to clarify, I have not purchased or tried this product. I came in to look based on a recommendation, however, I question the use of Sodium Borate in this product. This ingredient gets a rating of F on the Environmental Working Group database and has evidence of fertility damage, damage to unborn child, causes dermatitis and skin allergies/irritation, as well as respiratory irritation. Even if this ingredient might be a small amount, it's enough evidence for me to steer clear of this product and any other products with this ingredient!
Mama Suds laundry soap gets my laundry so clean and it works really well as a spot treatment/stain remover, too. It hasn't met a stain it can't get rid of and I'll always have it on hand. I even used it this morning to successfully clean a tough carpet stain the dog left behind. The liquid laundry soap has become my go-to spot treatment in addition to it being my favorite for all my loads of laundry.
I am blown away by this laundry detergent soap. I bought it primarily to wash cloth diapers; however, I plan to use MamaSuds products for all of our laundry. Not only am I beyond impressed with how well it works for diapers, but I'm grateful that it has dramatically simplified my wash routine. Moreover, I couldn't be more thankful that the ingredients are natural and non-toxic. Plus, the unscented option made without essential oils is much appreciated. I've been cloth diapering for more than four years with lots of struggles along the way due to hard well water and high-efficiency machines (yes, multiple washing machines). This product is truly a dream come true, and I don't want to be without it!
Attention athletes, farmers, and those with smelly jobs and hobbies— buy MamaSuds. It cleans great. But I was most impressed by the small amount needed to remove odors from clothes and towels, including a very dirty rag I discovered that sat on a boat for over a week, clothes worn after clearing algae from a lake for 3 hours, fishing and then cleaning the fish, giving our dog a bath, gardening, cleaning our chicken coop, spending time in a dairy cow barn, hiking mountains in 100-degree temps in Colorado, and from my son’s sports clothes, socks, and shoes that I thought were on the brink of not being saved! I live in Minnesota. My family spends 12 months a year working hard, and playing inside and outside. So we have dirty summer and winter clothes, shoes, linens, and boots. I had always bought commercial fragranced detergent because I thought it was the only way to clean our clothes because household detergents often weren’t strong enough. When I was diagnosed with severe skin allergies and temporal lobe epilepsy, it was determined seizures are triggered by certain chemicals and fragrances used in big box laundry detergents, and some of these ingredients cause eczema, itching, and hives. I needed to switch to natural products.
I make my own powdered soap, but sometimes like using liquid and found Mama Suds. I use them about equally. One great tip—if you like loads to smell differently depending on the items, or people in your household have different tastes, get unscented and add essential oils. I have used it as is, mixed 10 drops of lavender to a bedding load, and 10 drops of lemon to a cleaning products/shoes and socks load. All removed odors and came out just how I wanted. On tough stains I have added a little directly and it worked better than Shout. On one really dirty and smelly load, I doubled the amount used as a precaution and that worked just fine.
