Let's talk about the amazing Young Living LAUNDRY SOAP (Please note the following is not by me, but I cannot find the original source to credit. The information is too valuable not to share).
With a plant-based formula, Thieves Laundry Soap gently and naturally washes your clothes, cleaning them without any chemical or synthetic residue.
Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength to leave your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent. Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high- efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz (946 ml). However you can actually spilt this bottle in thirds and get three bottles of soap for the price of one!
🌿Why it's a big deal:🌿
When Young Living formulated Thieves Laundry Soap, there were two major questions they asked themselves: What ingredients do we include? Most importantly, what ingredients do we leave out? Like other products in Young Living’s household cleaner lineup, Thieves Laundry Soap’s purpose is to provide members with a true clean provided by a plant-based formula that is free from harsh additives.
Here are three common ingredients that you may not have known about, plus a few tips on naturally keeping clothes white:
If you’re looking to keep your whites bright without adding synthetic chemicals to the wash, try one of these easy alternatives:
🌱If you see stains on your clothes, pretreat them before washing.
🌱Don’t mix your whites with other colours in the wash. Launder them in an all-white load and use hot water.
🌱To whiten small items like socks or napkins, fill a pot with water and a few lemon slices, bring to a boil, turn off the heat, and add linens. Soak for up to an hour, then launder as usual.
For an extra brightening boost for whites, hang them dry in the sun for natural bleaching!
🌿Ingredients you don't want in your products:🌿
🌱1. Optical Brighteners🌱
Many popular laundry detergents contain optical brighteners to give clothes the appearance of being clean and white. By reflecting blue light, optical brighteners give the illusion of fabrics that look whiter than they actually are. These chemicals are designed to absorb into fabrics and remain on clothes after washing. Use the Think Dirty App to look up your detergent.
Thieves Laundry Soap is free from optical brighteners, because you don’t want your clothes to just look clean; you want them to actually be clean!
Young Living's plant-based formula uses pure essential oils and natural cleansing enzymes to wash your clothes and keep them fresh.
🌱2. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)🌱
Sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, is a cleansing agent widely used in products like soaps, shampoos, toothpastes, and laundry detergents. It is used so often because it’s inexpensive and produces lots of foamy lather. Many people are concerned about SLS in their products because it can sometimes cause irritation, itchiness, and may have other unknown side effects.
Thieves Laundry Soap is free from SLS and other sulfates. The cleaning power behind Thieves Laundry Soap comes from pure essential oils and natural enzymes.
🌱3. Synthetic Perfumes🌱
Some people consider synthetic perfumes to be problematic because companies aren’t required to disclose the exact ingredients in the fragrances. But as the world leader in essential oils, Young Living prefers to work with the refreshing scents of the pure essential oils that set them apart. Bergamot, Jade Lemon, and the essential oils in our Thieves blend provide a refreshing scent without any hidden synthetic fragrances.
