And like the good blogger that I am, I let Robyn, the owner of the shop, know I had featured her item and was using her photo. We got to chatting and she offered to send me some of the soap to try. Score! I love a good freebie. But then I was thinking that I have something to offer, too, and thought that if she was in need of anything paper, we could trade. And luckily she was, and I was able to make her some adorable (or at least I think so!) mini thank you cards that she can include with her packages. Double score because trading can be a lot of fun.
Anyway, I got my soap in the mail a couple of days ago and tried it out yesterday on some toddler clothes straight from the sandbox, some overdue-to-be-washed placemats, and the towels used to dry off the dog after her bath. All in all a good test load. Now, truth be told, I did this load the way I usually would- Shout on the stains, warm water to help get out the dirt. I wasn't trying to see how green I could be, just if it worked. And it did! It worked great- just as well as my regular liquid detergent did. All the dirt and food spots came out just as they usually would.
