Clean B Detergent Review and Giveaway Ends August 7th!! ~Closed~

Ok so time for another detergent review.  This time it is Clean B.  Now how could this review be any different from the other ones I have done.  Well it can!!


So let me start by saying that Melissa is one of the kindest and greatest women I have met.  And her customer service is totally great!  Now with that being said...let me take you on my journey.  So once we had talked and decided I would do this review, she sent me out some samples.  The only problem is they never made it to me :(  I was so sad.  I talked to her and let her know I never received them.  She graciously sent out another set.


Now let me fast forward to the day the mailman came to visit me bringing me my packages.  He and I are on a first name basis (I mean seriously he brings me 2-3 packages a day).  He comes up to me and goes "Carol, what in the world is in this package?" SO I looked and saw where it was coming from.  It was from Clean B.  I looked at him and said "Well...it is my detergent that I am trying out."  He just looked at me strangely.  I then went through the process of explaining to him about the difference in this detergent and store bought.  Fast forward to the end of the conversation... he looks at me and says "Order more please. It makes my truck smell great!"  So that was a great start!


Now funny that he said that because when I got the package it did have a faint smell to it, but the packages of detergent were sealed very nice.  The nice little resealable packaging!!  The packaging is simple yet nice.  I quickly tore into the detergents to smell.  Melissa sent me Cherry Almond and Fruit Slices.  I was in heaven!  I quickly ran down to the laundry and started washing!


I ran 4 loads through the Fruit Slices first.  I wanted to run them through dirty cloth diapers, dirty clothes, clean cloth diapers, and clean clothes.  I wanted to see if there was a real difference.  I read the directions and grabbed the scoop that came with the detergent.  I used the maximum amount of 2 scoops to make sure I got the full effect.  So starting with the dirty cloth diapers I stood at my washing machine watching the whole process.  Let me tell you that was the most disgusting water I have ever seen.  Then onto the dirty clothes.  It was yucky but no where near as yucky as the dirty diapers.  Yea, yea I know what you are thinking.  They are dirty of course it is going to look yucky!  Now onto clean diapers.  The water was dirty.  I mean um what happened? They are clean????  Same thing with my clean clothes.  Ok great...here I thought my clothes were clean.


Now to the best part.  They smelled AFTER they were washed!! I mean that heavenliness smell you only get when you put in the scoop with most detergents....it was still there!!!  Really?? How can this be?  Ok so as I take out the clothes and put them into the dryer I am amazed how much they smell like the detergent. Just made me want to eat a load of clothes, HA!


Then to the dryer.  So I just did a review of wool dryer balls.  What I did not tell you is during my review I switched detergents while reviewing them.  The reason being is Clean B. has a little something in it to help with the whole static cling issue.  And let me tell you I NOTICED a difference.  There was a lot less static in the clothes with Clean B. than the other detergent.


So enough talk about static.  I want to get to the second best part.  When I pulled my fresh and dried clothes from the dryer....they STILL had a smell of the detergent.  You want to know how great it is to put on clothes with a slight YUMMY smell to them and know there is NO CHEMICALS!!


I am completely and totally amazed with this product and this woman!  I made me a order for 10 bags!!  I want 10 scents I have not tried..I mean you should see all the scents she has!


Now in case you think I never tried my Cherry Almond I did.  I think I have washed everything in my home in Clean B.  It smells so amazing.  And everything came out just the way I described each and every time!
