I contacted Crunchy Clean to get some answers to my questions. They so generously sent me a Hard Water Starter Kit. It had a couple little bags of their detergent in unscented, Honey Vanilla Love Dust, and a regular bag of Monkey Farts. It also had Monkey Farts Sprinkles in it, which is a pail deodorizer. I have never used a pail deodorizer and I was very excited to get a chance to try it out.
I have a very sensitive nose, and being in the first trimester makes it even more sensitive. In fact, most smells would just not sit well with me. I had to refrain from using most of my favorite detergents, body washes, etc. Even before getting pregnant, I still had to be cautious about detergent smells. I found only 2 scents from my favorite detergent that I could use. So I was a little cautious about trying new scents, but Oh My!! They are amazing. I loved the soft, tangy, banana scent of the Monkey Farts! I love the name too. The Honey Vanilla LOVE Dust was sensual and very light. It has a hint of chocolate and vanilla to it and reminds me of my favorite Latte when I used to drink coffee. What I love the most is that even with the unscented version, there were no undertones that were off or funky that I find with most detergents. It was always a very clean and light smell. I am impressed with the time they take putting together all of their scents. The Sprinkles are amazing too. They really did the trick on those overnight diapers that I swear could get up and walk out of the pail on their own. The scent didn't overpower the pail, it just masked the ammonia smell. I think Sprinkles will be a standard addition to our diaper stash from here on out!
I love the bags that they use. I have never had a problem resealing the top either. I have used Crunchy Clean to prewash, to soak and for my regular cloth diaper laundry. Every time I am amazed by the results. For prewashing, I love how it really takes the ammonia stink out. When I did an overnight soak, I was shocked that the water looked SO clear (at the beginning and even with the yellowish color to it at the end of the soak). It didn't look murky like it usually does with other detergents. For my regular every other day washing, I really love it. I love how I only have to rinse and then wash....no need for an extra rinse or an extra wash cycle like I've experienced before. I really love this because it saves me time, money and water! It really is clean rinsing, even with my extremely hard water! It has made my washing routine so easy.
