As a family of 5, plus several fur-babies, we tend to do a lot of cleaning. Whether it's laundry, dishes, or just general cleaning, messes seem to be made faster than I can clean them up at times. Especially now that summer is here. Teenage boys tend to be sloppy creatures that eat more than an army of grown men. This means we go through a LOT of cleaning products.
Have you ever stopped and noticed how much waste simple household products create? Think about it. There are plastic jugs and bottles, cartons, and other various packaging that ultimately end up contributing to our already overflowing landfills. Of course some packaging can be recycled, if such facilities exist in the consumer's local area. This is not always the case, though. Some areas just don't have the most up-to-date recycling programs.
In addition to the waste that household products produce, many traditional cleaning products contain loads of artificial colors and dyes, as well as other chemicals that could potentially be harmful. This can create a rather uncomfortable, itchy, or even downright painful situation for those with sensitive skin.
One way to avoid both the waste and chemicals so common with traditional household cleaning products is to choose natural cleaning products with eco-friendly packaging. If you can actually reuse the packaging to further reduce waste, even better.
MyGreenFills from the folks at Selestial are the perfect example of this. They set out on a mission to create all natural products that work well, and offer them in a convenient, reusable package. As you can see by the photos, these products come with not only a container, but a powdered mix packet. All you need to do is follow the instructions and voila! You have freshly made detergents. When you run out, keep the container and just add a refill powder and additional water and shake it all up for a brand new batch! Easy, peasy, right?
Thanks to MyGreenFills, this is the last laundry jug you will ever need. Yes, really. In addition to laundry detergent, you can also get Fabric Softener, Color Safe Brightener, and Enzyme Stain Remover, too! These products are all completely natural and non-toxic. This is perfect for homes with kids and pets, like ours!
All MyGreenFills products are 100% non-toxic, hypoallergenic, great for HE washers, effective in cold water, affordable (less than 12cents per load!) and 2X concentrated (50 loads per soap jug!)… and BEST of all, refillable (One jug and done!)

The process is simple:
We received a nice assortment of MyGreenFills to try out for ourselves. I was immediately very impressed by how easy it was to mix the various products. Just fill the jugs to the fill line with water, add the packet of detergent, and shake. Boom! There's 50 loads worth of fresh, natural detergent, ready to go.
The Unscented Laundry Soap has done a fantastic job on our clothing and linens. While it says that the detergent is unscented, I detected a very light, clean scent that is very pleasant without being overpowering in the slightest. It definitely helps our clothing look and smell fresh and clean. I was very impressed by how well it took out most household stains.
For grass stains, I did have to use some of the Enzyme Stain Remover for best results. I expected that, though, since grass stains seem to be stubborn, even with traditional detergents. Pre-treating with the Enzyme Stain Remover really seemed to do the trick!
We also really like the Fabric Softener and Color Safe Brightener. The Fabric Softener has a nice, pleasant scent and is made with essential oils. It definitely leaves our clothing feeling nice and soft to the touch. The Color Safe Brightener relies on the action of Oxygenation. This safely and gently lifts stains and discolorations without relying on toxic chemicals or additives.
We also received a couple of other great products from Selestial.
The I'll Fly Away is a 100% Natural, non-toxic insect repellent. This has definitely come in handy this summer season, since we spend a lot of time outdoors. I have noticed that this really does repel nasty mosquitos and biting gnats that seem to take over when evening comes.
The Bye Bye Doo Doo is an odor eliminating room freshener. We don't have babies in diapers anymore, but we do have cats and dogs, as well as an often smelly teenage boy. This product is excellent for eliminating gross odors that like to linger around the house, especially in Kyle's room or near the cat towers and litter areas.
Overall, I am absolutely love, love, loving MyGreenFills. Not only are these products super-effective and affordable, they are also completely safe to use around my kids and pets. I also love the amount of waste these products help to reduce. Just one jug and you're done! Mixing is easy, and with convenient delivery options, you'll never have to run to the store for laundry detergent ever again! It just doesn't get much better than that!
