Tried it: Herbatergent

I was pretty stoked when Vaska contacted me and asked if I wanted to try their new "herbatergent" - an eco-friendly laundry detergent. This weekend we finally got a chance to tackle the pile of laundry that has been building up for... well, longer than I'd like to admit. So when Ryan was popping in some of our jersey-knit sheets, I added a cap-full of herbatergent (ok, ok, he added the cap-full... he is the brawns behind this operation, after all!). Much to my delight, the sheets came out soft and clean, just as promised. We used the "unscented" kind, and while it definitely didn't smell fruity or chemically like other detergents, it made the sheets smell fresh and inviting. Just what we like.

Vaska advertises that it's great for babies and people with sensitive skin, which I loved. It's also biodegradable and is not tested on animals. It's concentrated enough that the cap is teensy and still gets the job done - which means even a petite bottle lasts longer and saves you money per wash. It's price ($9.99) is about the same as a similar-sized chemical detergent. Not bad at all for a detergent made almost totally from plants.
