Buncha Farmers All Natural Stain Remover

The ultimate natural stain remover. Works wonders (and is safe) on cloth diapers & mama pads!  Simply wet the stick, rub it on the stain and then launder as usual.

This potent and highly effective stain remover is made with all-natural, biodegradable ingredients, and enhanced with borax to soften the water and aid the cleaning process. No artificial dyes or perfumes, just the fresh, clean scent of natural Eucalyptus* and the deodorizing power of Litsea. Best of all, it works wonders on blood stains (plus grass, grease, red wine, ink, ring around the collar, and more).  Color safe and hypoallergenic.

Note: This product may not be appropriate for those sensitive to strong scents.  Please do not ingest or use around food, keep out of reach of children and pets, and make sure you rinse or wash clothing and surfaces thoroughly after use.

Charlie's Laundry Soap™

*Now packaged in new non-clumping bags!  Charlie's Soap™ Laundry Soap is a revolutionary approach to laundry & cloth diaper care.  It does not cover up stains and odors with scents and brighteners - it really cleans.  It is made with a unique blend of biodegradable coconut-based detergents and high-grade, completely soluble, Green River washing soda.  This also makes it a perfect soap for babies or those with sensitive skin.  The ONLY laundry soap that I use on ALL of my wash, due to my son's very sensitive eczema-prone skin. 

*Some GREAT studies and reports of Charlie's Soap™:

A test was performed with 100% cotton cloth diapers. Poor rinsability was indicated by a weight gain after controlled washing and drying.  Diapers washed in Tide Liquid (at recommended levels) gained nearly 2% in weight after only 8 washings. Those washed in Charlie's Soap™ (at recommended levels and 4 times recommended levels) gained no measurable weight at all.

To qualify as biodegradable, a substance must be 80% degraded in 28 days. Charlie's Soap™ degraded over 97% in soil in 28 days and is certified safe for use in small lakes and streams.  Charlie's Soap is a Registered Trademark of Shiloh Products, Inc

*Charlie's Laundry Powder™ is packaged in a 2.64 lb Bag ~ enough for 80 LARGE loads!  Only 1 TABLESPOON used per large wash load ~ (¼ the amount recommended by the competition).

    Diaper Dawgs™

    Mom's Newest Best Friend in Cloth Diapering!

    Diaper Dawgs™ were created by a mom for moms and dads. The founder decided to scratch her own itch of making laundry day a little less gross when she glanced over and saw her silicone kitchen mitt hanging on the oven door and thought, “I wish I had a mitt small enough for my fingers to grab these wet inserts!”

    Diaper Dawgs make cloth diapering…

    •More sanitary when handling soiled cloth diaper inserts by reducing direct contact with fecal matter that can find a hiding place under fingernails

    •Quicker to launder by allowing mom to reach in confidently and firmly to fetch soiled inserts from cloth diaper covers and avoid playing the “fingertips-only” or “shake-my-cover-till-it-falls-out” time-wasting games

    •More eco-friendly by eliminating the use of excess paper and disposable plastic bags that mom used when scraping soiled inserts

    •More enjoyable with fun-sized dogs, sold in colorful companion packs, that mom doesn’t have to hide behind closed doors ­– the perfect “companions” for the cloth-diapering mom!

    Diaper Dawgs composition are much like their oven mitt counterparts. The difference comes in Diaper Dawgs’ unique sizing. They are patent-pending, flexible, slip-on silicone gloves that act as barriers between fingers and soiled inserts when separating pocket-style or all-in-two cloth diapers either after a diaper change or when sorting the dirty diaper pail for laundering. Have you ever cringed while touching your baby’s dirty cloth diapers? You need a pack of Diaper Dawgs™!

    *Diaper Dawgs™ come packaged as pairs!  Your choice of Blue/Green or Pink/Purple Pair.

    Eco Nuts Natural Laundry Soap

    Eco Nuts Natural Laundry Soap

    Eco Nuts are completely sustainable dried fruit shells that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree (also called the Soap Berry or Soap Nut Tree) in Nepal, India and Indonesia. The ones we harvest come from high up in the Himalayas and are the highest quality "soap nut" on the market. These fruit shells have been used in India and China for centuries, and are now gaining popularity in America and Europe as a renewable, biodegradable and organic alternative to chemical detergents and expensive Green laundry soaps.

    Eco Nuts contain Saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.

    Eco Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they are perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers. All-Natural Eco Nuts are also great for septic and grey water systems. But don¡¯t expect these shells to foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents. Foam simply does not represent cleaning power.

    Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The Saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified USDA Organic by EcoCert at the source.

    Eco Nuts are Nut Allergy Safe!  Eco Nuts are actually a berry fruit related to the lychee and are not nuts at all. They are completely nut allergy safe and have been used successfully with no reactions by people with nut allergies. They earned the name "nuts" because they dry into hard shells like nuts instead of squishy fruit.

    While Eco Nuts has been a terrific solution for many customers with skin allergies and other conditions, people who have many allergies or compromised immune systems should always take proper precautions and first wash one small item in a small container or sink OR do a patch test before washing an entire load in the washing machine.

    Our proprietary sorting process also ensures a consistency in shape and texture that makes Eco Nuts pleasant and easy to use. Because we lovingly and carefully hand package in the USA, we can also eliminate individualized plastic wrapping otherwise required by customs.

    In addition, many regular soap nuts are harvested, sorted and prepared in the outdoors, and dried on a rooftoop. This exposes them to the elements and birds or other animals! We take great care to ensure our soap nuts are carefully prepared and stored indoors in a clean facility. Our soap nuts are carefully sorted using our proprietary process to ensure they are free from contaminants before they are packaged! After all this sorting and care, those soap nuts become Eco Nuts! We are currently the only soap nut company that we know of to be utilizing these methods and technology both in the US and overseas to make these soap nuts safer.  They are safe to use in both standard & high-efficiency (HE) machines on any water temperature.   

     

    *Offered in 2 sizes:  Trial Size (or travel) Comes with 1 Reusable wash bag, Instructions, and Eco Nuts for 10 loads.  Medium Size Comes with 2 Reusable wash bags, Instructions, and Eco Nuts for 100 loads!  Safe for all washers.
