Moms know all about laundry. If nothing else, doing laundry is a regular task that we try to fit into our weekly routine. Laundry can also be a science, with tons of tips available about how to best wash laundry, remove stains from kids’ outfits, and even limit wear on clothing from regular washing. I like using natural laundry products such as Molly’s Suds and I try to regularly schedule doing the laundry at our house. I can’t do laundry every day and no one likes running out of clean clothes. Molly’s Suds helps our family stay clean and go green by using Eco-friendly laundry detergent.

My kids create dirty laundry all sorts of ways. The main way laundry is created at our house is from outfit changes. My girls apparently feel like they need to change outfits several times a day. This habit is somewhat balanced out by the times my kids feel like they don’t need to wear any clothes at all! But still, dirty laundry ends up in piles on the floor.
Natural & Effective Laundry Products
When it comes to washing our dirty laundry, I look for products that don’t have a strong fragrance and are gentle on cotton clothing (which most of our clothing is made from). Molly’s Suds laundry products was created by a problem-solving mom as an Eco-friendly and non-toxic alternative for laundry detergent and stain removers. Molly’s Suds products are made using the purest of ingredients without carcinogens or known human toxins and are even biodegradable, gentle on the environment, and safe for the smallest members of our family.

Mommy Life is messy, especially when it comes to laundry. My kids enjoy doing craft projects, coloring, gluing, playing with homemade sensory glitter slime, and creating art with homemade finger paint. Any creative kids project such as finger paint is bound to end up in hair, on faces, and definitely on clothing. After an afternoon painting activity, Molly’s Suds can help! Our colorful finger paint is super easy to make with just cornstarch, flour, and water. Cornstarch creates smoother finger paint, while the flour helps it flow like paint. Easily mix up your own finger paint and let your kids choose their favorite colors! See our full DIY finger paint tutorial here.
Learning Life Skills Creates Laundry
My girls also love helping me cook in the kitchen, playing outside, and enjoying snacks — all the while creating dirty laundry. I’m sure we will make lots of holiday goodies this year and my girls want to be involved in every step of the process. Molly’s Suds laundry products help me easily remove food and dirt stains from my daughter’s clothing because after all — dirty laundry happens when you’re having fun.
I received a variety of Molly’s Suds products to try with our own family; liquid and powder laundry detergent, color-safe clothing whitener, laundry wash for sports clothing, and even wool dryer balls. I like having options when doing our family’s laundry. Powder detergent works well for towels and sheets and liquid detergent effectively takes out stains and dirt from my kids’ shirts, pants, skirts, and dresses. Molly’s Suds detergent is naturally formulated and effective at washing a full load of kids’ clothing!
Molly’s Suds laundry products are made with a “no compromise” attitude and the purest of Certified Vegan ingredients. These naturally-made laundry products meet stringent guidelines which allow Molly’s Suds to be Certified Cruelty Free by Leaping Bunny.

Messy Little Eaters
Did I mention mom life is full of surprise messes? Sometimes (several times a day) we have to clean up the people we love the most! My little man is no exception; he pretty much needs an outfit change after every meal.
Active Kids & Soccer Players
My daughter played soccer this fall, which resulted in many grass stains and dirty outfits. Dirty sports laundry is easy to wash with a natural detergent such as Molly’s Suds All Sport Laundry Wash!
