Shaklee – eco friendly laundry products


shakleedryershts.jpgLaundry day is the bain of many an existence. If you’re Diddy or Paloma Picasso you can afford to pop over to Rodeo Drive and buy some new threads every time you soil an outfit or after being copiously photographed by the paparazzi, but for we commoners, we’re just faced with another trip to that most mundane of destinations…the laundry room. So when you’ve finally run out of underoos and maxed-out those credit cards, you may just have to get the dirt out yourself, in which case you might as well do the planet a favor and do it green. These products from Shaklee are phosphate and chlorine free, biodegradable, hypoallergenic and natural.

A 5.5 lb box of Fresh Laundry Concentrate or Fresh Laundry Fragance Free powder will run you a recently reduced $17.70 and they will satisfy your laundry fix for roughly 88 loads.

The recyclable, veggie-based, Soft Fabric Fragrance Free Dryer Sheets go for $8.45 and even break in two for better dryer distribution.
