When mom and I went shopping, I decided to try a new laundry detergent. I picked up Arm and Hammer's Essentials. I just did two loads of clothes with it. Holy crap, it is awesome. My clothes smell great. They also seem softer, but I think that is my imagination.
I looked it up on the internets and it turns out it's good for the environment or some other tree hugger hippy non-sense. Something about being made from 100% biodegradable plant-based soaps, dye free, has no phosphates/bleaches, is boosted by baking soda, safe for septic systems and the bottle is recyclable.
Whatever. It smells great and got my clothes clean. I recommend. Two thumbs up!
