Introducing a homemade clothes detergent - SAFE FOR CDs!!
* All natural ingredients
* Phosphate-free
* Non-toxic
* PLANET FRIENDLY!
* Gray Water Safe

-This detergent works great in any temperature wash.
-It is GREAT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN and BABY SKIN (we have both and its perfect!)
-Have diaper safe version - I have used it for months on our diapers, and they are super clean and super white - *no* stains!! PLEASE NOTE: I have seen many other detergents claim to be "cloth diaper safe", but they are not if they contain soap or enzymes (and borax has been said to ruin elastic, as well). Soap has potential to build up on diapers, enzymes can cause a horrible open rash on your DC. Please beware and check ingredients for your child's and diaper's sake!
-It can be used to pretreat stains in paste form.

Also great for high efficiency washer - use 1/2 amount (1/2 tablespoon). Its a non-sudsing formula, so it works great for any washing machine!

LARGE selection of customized scents can be seen here (http://hyenacart.com/CrunchyClean/index.php?info=634), customizing or blending is no problem.

I have been scenting CD friendly detergents with no problems with the diapers or baby bums. I wouldn't recommend scented detergent for SUPER sensitive bums, however.

CD detergent
We have developed a patent pending diaper detergent that we are very proud of. It is a special blend of naturally occurring minerals, detergents, oxygen releasing agents that have proven to clean diapers in a safe way that does not harm your precious baby or your diapers. It does work to kill bacteria, and works great in any temperature wash and any type of machine. You can use it to soak your diapers to kill germs or get rid of stains as well as wash your diapers regularly.
Regular size CD friendly or regular: $9.50 plus shipping
That's enough for 80 loads of laundry (136 loads in high efficiency machine).
Large size CD friendly or regular: $17.50 plus $4.80 shipping
That's enough for 160 loads of laundry! (272 loads in high efficiency machine).

Regular detergent
The regular detergent is what we use on any other things we wash besides CDs. It has soap in it (gentle vegetable based soaps and lye soap blend) to give it the extra "OOMPH" of cleaning tough stains as well as a few other ingredients which help with inorganic stains and dirt. The diaper detergent has safe ingredients for diapers (NO SOAP, ENZYMES OR BORAX) that are really great on organic waste and cleaning your diapers - PLENTY of people us it on all of their clothes with great results, and its certainly easier and more economical to have only one type of detergent.
Regular size CD friendly or regular: $9.50 plus shipping
That's enough for 80 loads of laundry (136 loads in high efficiency machine).
Large size CD friendly or regular: $17.50 plus shipping
That's enough for 160 loads of laundry! (272 loads in high efficiency machine).

Sample of either CD friendly or regular detergent: $3.50 plus $2.90 shipping
That's enough detergent for 14 loads of laundry (28 loads in high efficiency machine).
You choose two scents to try!




Now offering 50 cent discount on next order if you send back your bags for recycling purposes. :) (I have tried several methods for shipping, but the only method that doesn't break open or leak are plastic bags so we will reuse them!)

WAHM samples available - please contact me!


Paypal preferred. RME taken as well. Shipping via priority/first class 5-7 business days after payment. DC is included, insurance is option for additional $1.65 - please let me know before payment if you would like insurance. ]

What size load is recommended? Like 12 large loads or 12 med loads?

kissinfish
05-07-2008, 06:55 PM
I'd say 1 load = large load unless its *very* soiled.

Oh, the large is 68 loads or twice that in high efficiency.

Other than being unscented, how is the cloth dipe detergent different? Is it tougher on stains/odors?
TIA.

kissinfish
05-09-2008, 08:19 PM
It does work better on stains, IMO. I've never had an odor problem, honestly (my dd is only 7 months). Also, it doesn't have any soap in it which has a potential of building up :)

I've had mamas use the regular on diaps but I haven't heard the results- we use the diaper detergent on our diaps and the regular on all of our clothes/baby clothes etc. :)

Hey, mamas. This detergent is A M A Z I N G! I love everything about it. I bought the regular in Peppermint scent. Be prepared for a scent that excites every single time you walk near the laundry room! I knew it was in the mailbox before I even got within 3 feet of it! I use the regular on my cloth diapers along with 1 scoop of Oxyclean. I was using Ecover but was not happy with the unclean feeling. But Crunchy Clean leaves the diapers feeling great. I've recommended it to everyone I know :thumbsup:

eta: just read the ingredients and realized i need to stop adding the oxyclean because it's in there already :)

I love this detergent. Our clothing is so clean and fresh smelling. I wanted to share that my DD has an Elmo tee (from the show we took her to last fall) that she loves to wear around the house. She spilled spaghetti on it a few weeks ago and my DH threw it in the dryer before checking on the stain. It was baked in and the Oxyclean didn't help! I tried making a paste with a little bit of the cloth diaper detergent and it is pretty much gone! :) I can barely see it in good lighting which is so much better than what it was. I highly recommend her detergent and the lemon and lavender chamomile smell so good!

Can't wait to try some out! I will place an order soon! I haven't read back through the pages, but what are your personal fav. scents?

kissinfish
05-24-2008, 09:25 PM
WELL, my personal favs are all the citrusy essential oils (especially grapefruit), and then monkey farts, baby bee, and pink sugar. I also like oatmeal milk n honey. I think peppermint smells yummy, and its a really popular scent. I'm not a big lavender fan, but tons of people love vanilla/lavender combo.

And that's so fun that you found me on etsy AND found me here!! That's great! :o)

Let me know if you have any other questions, mama!

This detergent is awesome!! I purchased the diaper safe and regular. Our clothes are clean and smell great. They're just as clean as Tide ever got them, but smell better (lavender/vanilla)! The dipes are white and clean also. I was secretly afraid there would be stains, but there were none! Plus I feel so good using this product. And even the sample size lasts quite a while since you only use a TBS. I am a believer in Crunchy Clean! I can't wait to get some more scents.:goodvibes:

I have RME too I would like to use. And can you tell me what the difference is between the regular and CD version?

The regular has soap in it that has the potential to build up on diapers in some types of water (some mamas have no problems with it), and the CD version has no soap. :o)

Yum! :drool:
A couple questions:
1. Would you consider doing a scent sampler pack? (Maybe 1 or 2Tb each of your top 6 scents?)
2. How does the cleaning power of the CD safe version campare to the regular version when used on clothes? I was thinking of just using the CD safe version for all my laundry, unless you think maybe my kids clothes (and stinky husband clothes) need the extra boost from the soap. :) We're currently using Sun F&C on all our clothes, so we're just looking for something comparable.

1. I have done a scent sampler pack, and its no problem. What I typically do is charge $1.50/6 tablespoons so you can split that up as much as you want - you could get 6 bags of 2 tablespoons each for $3 :o)
2. I think its fine, except if you have a DH who messes with cars and gets really dirty outside (I do!) or kids who roll in dirt etc. - the soap really does give it a little *oomph* for stains and real messes.

Hope this helps a little - let me know if you have more questions mama! :laundry:

1. I have done a scent sampler pack, and its no problem. What I typically do is charge $1.50/6 tablespoons so you can split that up as much as you want - you could get 6 bags of 2 tablespoons each for $3 :o)
2. I think its fine, except if you have a DH who messes with cars and gets really dirty outside (I do!) or kids who roll in dirt etc. - the soap really does give it a little *oomph* for stains and real messes.

Hope this helps a little - let me know if you have more questions mama! :laundry:

Thanks! That helps a bunch. I'll PM you my complicated order :goodvibes:

What is the difference between the essential oil and fragrance oil? I am trying to decide between lemon and pink sugar. Is one better for clothes versus cloth diapers?

They're both the same as far as laundry is concerned. EOs are 100% natural, and FOs aren't always perfectly natural but they're still safe for the environment from all of my research.

Would you be able to do a cinnamon vanilla scented soap?
I could look into it, mama. I don't have any cinnamon scent, so I'd have to work on that! Keep checking with me!

We used 2 T in a huge load and all the clothes came out squeaky clean and very lightly scented. I would be ok with a stronger scent, but I don't think DH wants to walk around smelling like pink sugar. :giggle2: Thank you mama!!

i like the apple vanilla scent but at least for me, I can't smell any of them once they are washed. They are just clean but don't smell like anything. I have a front loader too so I am sure if that makes a difference. Kinda wished they smelled when I was done though. :( Stupid Front loader.

I kinda just use 1 or 2 tbs for everything, (I do fb's and I did 1 TBS for those in my Front loader)

Nope that is impossible lol. It is like cotton candy and something else... real yummy!

I know she is still on vacation so I will add one other thing... MY Husband (Still) cant pick a scent so this is what we did...

We picked 6 scents & got 2 tablespoons of each scent...it was like 5.xx with shipping...

I just asked her for the smaller sampler she does which is 1.50 for 6 tablespoons divided how ever you like.. I am getting 3 different scents this time (I just saw them added & they sound devine!! Doodle Bug (blend of cream soda, fresh watermelon slices, hubba bubba bubblegum, with a hint of new born baby), Banan-za, Buttercream Cupcake)

Hope this helps some!! I HIGHLY Recomend buying some no matter what scent you get!!

So far btw Out of our sampler our favorite is the Apple Vanilla... but I also LOVE the Mango Papaya... reminds me of my favorite gain!! YUM!

Oops sorry to gab!

I Just LOVE her soap & cant wait to make the full switch to hers fulltime!! :drif:

Nope, i can't smell anything afterwards either; but everything is clean and fresh and brighter.

The issue i am having is it doesn't sudds up. I got the regular "green" detergent and once the water is full there are no more sudds; is that normal? I was everything on cold except my diapers which are on ho; but i use a different detergent right now for those.

Here's answers to some questions while I was gone:

QUOTE=EricaLynn;3800801]If I wanted to order a few trial sizes (in the plastic baggies) Would the shipping still be 2.50 or is it 2.50 for each baggie?[/QUOTE]

Itíll be exact shipping, and its $2.50 for the one sample which is 12 loads. If you want more then 12 loads, then Iíll weigh it.

Are the scents CD safe or is it only unscented?

You can have the CD detergent scented, but I donít recommend it for super sensitive baby bums. We use scented with no probs.

It is a non sudsing cleaner, so totally normal. Some people have issues with not feeling like its clean if it has no bubbles, but its just as effective. We use cold on everything most of the time.

They typically come out pretty soft, but a good softener is just plain vinegar - 1/4-1/2 cup in the rinse cycle (you can use a downy ball for it too), if you think you need it. Also a good antibacterial and antistatic, and keeps clothes from fading.

I've never stripped mine. :) I would test them (drop of water test), and if you think you need to strip go ahead but otherwise I wouldn't.
I do wash in very hot water probably once/month, but I do that with regular detergent for good measure :giggle2:

From www.pinstripesandpolkadots.com:
grab the nasal aspirator fill it with warm water and squeeze a stream of water mimicking pee onto the interior fleece or suede cloth of your stuffed pocket diaper. Does the water bead up into little droplets that sit on the top of the fabric, or run right off the diaper? or does it immediately go through the fabric? If the water remains as little droplets or runs off, then you may need to consider stripping your diapers for better performance

I PM'd you a few days back but haven't heard anything. Did my message get lost in the shuffle somewhere? LMK! Thanks!

I PM'd her as well, and it was read but no response and I also asked on here with no response..I do realize she has a ton of orders to fill so maybe that is why?I don't want to be annoying I was just really excited to place my order. :blush: :(

Sorry all, I just realized that I must have deleted your PMs - I thought I was deleting the last page when it was the first and THAT is why I haven't responded. If you PMed me and I haven't responded, please let me know and again I am so sorry!!

PMing you hugstrees!

I'm new around here--newbie to CD--but I'm not new to crunchy clean. This stuff really rocks and I highly recommend it. We use the unscented regular green but it still has a nice fresh, clean scent to it. Our clothes are clean and super soft. Even my DH commented on how much softer our clothes are. It's also great for stains. I was able to get some baked on stains out easily by making a paste and letting it sit overnight prior to washing. I hope you keep makin' this stuff b/c I know I will be a continued regular customer. Thanks for a great product!!

Thanks, and SO glad you're liking it! I got blueberry stains off my DD's shirt last night actually and I was even amazed!
