The Laundry Tarts!

 Are you ready for the most deliciously scented dessert inspired goody that won’t leave an inch of bulge around your waist, hips and thighs?  Oh, Innisfil, Ontario you are good….you a VERY good to this Torontonian.
 How about if I told you about a wonderful laundry detergent that is scented after those delicious desserts?

What the heck is Mama Ash talkin’ about?
Not only does your home smell like a bakery but it’s zero guilt and 100% addictive to use for all your laundry.  Any cloth diapering folks here?  Well, lets just say this is just as good for cloth diapers as any other soap you use….but BETTER.  Believe me I’ve used every powdered detergent under the sun for my sons cloth diapers and laundry that these come in my top list of must haves for eco, chemical free cleaning.

Live out in the country and have a septic tank?  No problem, it’s safe.  Hard water or Soft water?  The Laundry Tarts is good with all of the above and all types of washing machines.

After all I am a blogging mom so I get to try lots of goodies and this makes my top list, when I get my Seal of Approval badge made, this is so getting one.  Even though I got this to review, I am giving my honest opinion.  If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t endorse it.

 I’ve been using this detergent for a month now and it cleans, softens and does such a great job.  I’ve used them for cloth diapers as well and they are white, clean and well….just friggin great!
It comes in one Unscented version called Plain Jane and five other scents such as Key Lime Pie, Vanilla Dulce, Black Forest Cake, Cinnamon Buns and newest scent Oatmeal Almond.

It is lightly scented, so if you are sensitive to scents it is truly gentle and your clothes will smell clean and neutral.
You don’t need those added chemicals and preservatives to have a better wash.  A little goes a long way with these detergents.

 So who are The Laundry Tarts?
Jessy Cooke NHP, CNC, CHN, RNPA, CI, CH
Michelle Waithe BASC, RHN, PTS
Along with friend and business partner Jessy, The Laundry Tarts was developed on the philosophy that a healthy lifestyle requires a positive, optimistic mindset, a nutritionally dense whole food diet, exercise, and a toxin free environment. Along with creating their own natural laundry detergent this passion has evolved into an Eco and Holistic Health Coaching endeavor as a way to pass on loving guidance and their combined wealth of knowledge to others so that they may also start living the best life ever. The beautiful friendship that has evolved between Michelle and Jessica is undeniable and evident in the passion they bring to everything that they do as a team.

What’s in their soap and what does all that bad stuff mean that they don’t use?

The Good Stuff:

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Sodium Carbonate (Soda Wash), Sodium Percarbonate (Powdered hydrogen peroxide) Sea salt, Saponified coconut/canola oil, rosemary extract, phthalate free essential and fragrance oils.
The Bad Stuff:
You will not find Chlorine: Chlorine is very irritating to the skin. It dries out the skin’s natural oils and can cause rashes, hives, soreness and irritation to the eyes, lungs and mucus membranes.
You will not find Phosphates: Excess phosphorus into rivers, lakes and fresh water can offset the delicate balance of biology and produce an excess of algae and bacteria, making water inhabitable for aquatic life, unsuitable for swimming or ingesting.  
You will not find Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate (SLS/SLES): Unfortunately SLS/SLES, is a skin irritant and is absorbed into the skin very easily. Like many other commercial ingredients, it is also a xenoestrogen, making it’s way to the bloodstream and causing hormonal imbalances in the body.
You will not find Parabens: Parabens are the most well known of xenoestrogens, possibly because it is so commonly used in deodorants, body creams, sun lotions, hair dye, makeups.
You will not find Phthalates: Phthalates can be irritating to asthma sufferers, cause headaches, migraines, dizziness and are being linked to disrupting hormone levels, feminizing males in the womb and blocking natural hormone receptors in females. 
You will not find EDTA: EDTA is more harmful to the environment and can as a hormone disrupting agent according to large study groups. 
You will not find Animal Products: we focus on only using cruelty-free, 100 % vegan ingredients. We do not use beef or animal tallow nor products containing bees wax, gelatin or dairy

Where to buy?  Buy online! As addictive as cloth diapering is so is buying the best detergents, but this is great for the whole family.

Look what the Tarts have digged up! Charlies diapers are soakin’ in the Tarts!
