Obsessed: Lavender Scented Laundry
Being green never smelt so good.
I may not be the most eco-savvy of people, but I do know that I’d like to have clean clothing and not harm the environment too. I’ve tried a few eco-friendly detergents in the past, but they’ve either irritated my skin, or didn’t do a great job cleaning my assorted items.
Then I tried Vaska Herbatergent ($13.99, target.com) in Light Lavender. The cleaning compound is plant-based, never tested on animals, hypo-allergenic and was originally created by a fashion designer. I thought that if a product was created by someone who loves clothing more than me, it’s going to be gentle and effective.
And it was! My clothing popped out (well, I wish they did on their own) from the dryer, looking good and smelling very faintly like lavender. If you prefer unscented clothes, Herbatergent comes unscented as well.
Vaska has an entire line of green cleaning products.You may dread doing laundry and other household tasks, but isn’t it nice to know that you’re using something that’s effective, not destructive and a whiff of it can make you smile?
