For spring-cleaning month, I would like to turn you on to my favorite products. Since I have had children, I have become much more diligent about using eco-friendly products; and it's been a challenge since I love Softscrub. Since my boys take a bath every night, the thought of them soaking in a residue of chemicals terrifies me. Then again, the tubs got to get clean! Melaleuca to the rescue! This small company makes a host of wonderful products that really get the job done.
Melaleuca takes its name from the flower Melaleuca Alternifolia that produces a naturally powerful essential oil, commonly known as tea tree oil. This oil is used in many of their products from personal care to household cleaners.
I highly recommend their starter packs to sample the cleaners. I love the laundry stain remover as well as their Tub-n-Tile, but, alas, can't use their liquid detergent as my machine only takes powder. (I'm not complaining – at least I have a washing machine!) I am still in search of an excellent powder laundry detergent and am waiting on an order from Lifekind.
After I clean with Melaleuca's products, the apartment glows but not in that toxic way. My eyes don't water and my hands aren't chaffed from chemicals. The boys' room is clean and there isn't a trace of artificial odor.
Melaleuca is a lovely company to order from. If you try their products, let me know what you think. LMD
