"You had better bottle this stuff" ... Well, with maybe 10 days notice, I found out we could participate in the Sweet William Open Air Market in Denver. A chance to test the market and find out if there was any interest in the general public, for this kind of product.

It was a crazy week to say the least. My dear friend("dear friend"- someone who jumps on board with any crazy idea you have and makes it happen) Diane, and her very enthusiastic family, along with my own very supportive family got to work. Looking back it was a blast. It was a learning experience as well. We made a sign. Made lots and lots of laundry soap, and were off.
It was a VERY hot day, but so much fun!!
Our best customer so far is an elderly gentleman from Utah. He bought 10 bags, bless his heart.
Over all we felt it was a success.

Why Pure Laundry?

I created Pure Laundry for people like me.
 A busy mom who likes nice things, who also is concerned with making healthy choices,  and takes pride in caring for my family.   I wanted a laundry soap that worked well, wasn't full of added fillers and unnecessary ingredients.
Having moved recently to a new home in the middle of a corn field...with a septic system,
having also purchased a front loading washer, I wasn't happy with how the laundry smelled.
My husband had even commented, "our towels didn't smell bad, just not fresh."
I started experimenting.  I discovered many recipes in random books and online for homemade laundry soap.  Eventually, we created a recipe we were pleased with.  My 10 year old son, who was actively involved in mixing, pouring and stirring... ran to the laundry room.    He had his first real lesson in sorting laundry.  We did a towel load first.  We were thrilled with the results.  The true test was when my husband,  having used a freshly washed towel,  exclaimed, "You had better bottle this stuff, these towels smell amazing!"
We have enjoyed lots of help and support from dear friends and family.  Ultimately, we hope you are as pleased with our product as we are.
We use the finest ingredients, including 100% pure essential oils. The essential oils help clean and freshen the laundry. They offer other benefits as well. In addition to smelling wonderful, some have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.

There are three scents available:

Orange- Uplifting and antidepressant. Helps remove stains.
Grapefruit- Refreshing and uplifting.
Lemon- Stimulating, helps whiten laundry
I use this for every day laundry.

Lavender- Relaxing and calming.
This is great for all bedding, pajamas, baby clothes etc.

Peppermint- Purifying, energizing and stimulating.
I have had terrific results with stinky socks and football uniform.
I use this for almost everything during the month of December, for obvious reasons!!
