Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent Review and #Giveaway! US/Can 2/9

I have three children and we are not able to purchase new clothes that often so I try my best to keep their clothes stain free and in good shape. Ocassionally, dirt or food does soil their clothes and I treat with a stain remover and let soak before washing. With that being said, I have to purchase the stain remover in addition to my laundry detergent. It gets costly.

I had the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent(5lbs). When I first opened the container, I was somewhat disappointed with it's lack of scent. My family does not have sensitive skin so I tend to purchase detergents with scents because I like our clothes to smell fresh when they are clean. Although I do like them to smell fresh, I would choose cleanliness over scent any day.

Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent is environmentally safe, non-toxic and contains no phosphates. It is safe for all fabric types with the exception of wool and silk. This detergent eliminates stains with the power of Oxygen Bleach De-stainer and Deodorizer.

My Review
I have been using Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent for about 3 weeks now and I have used about 1/4 of the container. I do a load of laundry, or two, a day! This detergent has done miracles! The stains I would usually treat with another stain remover(baby food, grape juice, grass stains,etc), I have treated with this detergent instead, to see the outcome. Easy Directions: Wet the stain with water, sprinkle with a dash of detergent, rub together, let sit for a few minutes and toss into the wash. 
My stains are gone! Nothing left behind. No residue, no stains, no scent...just clean clothes.
I love that Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent dissolves quickly and rinses away completely, leaving no residue on our clothes. Another plus is, a little goes a long way. This stuff is lasting a long time! I would have had to buy more by now, if I was using my regular brand! About the scent, I use dryer sheets so I have been able to keep the scent that I love on my clothes, while using a more effective detergent.

I definitely recommend you giving Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent a try! Compare to your regular detergent and you will see the difference!

You will find lots of other products at Tropical Traditions such as All Purpose Cleaner, Coconut Oil Hair Treatment, Pet Shampoo, Organic Dark Chocolate Bars with Almonds and so much more!
