Just a reminder...

Overload of suds from a dishwasher!

This was my daughter's "suds overload" today.... 

SO this is just a gentle reminder that although us "grown ups" know NEVER (ever)  use dishwashing soap as replacement for "dishwasher" soap--those with helpful young little ones (trying to help and surprise Mommy by cleaning up)...our children, grand children, etc. are NEVER too young to learn this (smile). 

I'd say my daughter's floor is going to look mighty shiny clean after this clean up!

Oh my! See the little foot upper left hand corner? Yep, that's a tissue to do the clean up job! Ohhhhh to be 10 years old again!

Helping our branches grow story...

Whispering Willow Natural Laundry Soap. Natural ingredients, HE friendly, NO fabric softener needed (ever). All temperatures- AND now we can also say it's a great pre-soak too!
Recently I was contacted by Amity Hook-Sopko, Editor Green Child Magazine, and was asked if we'd be interested in a review of our Natural Laundry Soap (Whispering Willow Natural Laundry Soap), and also participate in a giveaway of one of our Natural Laundry Soaps here. (Hurry to enter- entering will close 2/24/12!)

 Soon a package was sent to Amity with all kinds of Under the Willow goodies for her to try. THEN came the nail biting part- waiting to hear her thoughts/comments.

It didn't take long until she posted some comments on Facebook. I cut/paste the entry right from Amity's Facebook page. 

Here's what she said, posted on Facebook:

Amity Hook-Sopko Carrie Garvin - yesterday on the way home from school, my little one's nose started bleeding. By the time I could pass napkins back, his sleeves were already covered. I rolled them up so he didn't have to look at it, but then realized last night at bath time that we had dried up blood, and I've never been able to get blood out of clothes. I soaked them overnight in the washer with your lavender detergent, and this morning, I can't find where the stains were. I think you just made me good at stain removal - LOL!

Don't forget to wash your dog toys!

Dog toys need to be washed too!

So easy to forget, but dog toys needed to be washed, just like their bedding, etc. 

Easy tips:
-Use a laundry netting bag to keep all toys together
-Don't ever use any fabric softener
-Hang dry
-Make sure all tears, etc. are sewn before washing
-Any temperature will do! Just get those toys washed!

LOVE to hang dry- weather permitting!

Our lab Bella is checking out the "goods". I think she approves of a clean wash!

A night on the water....

Simply Natural...

Whispering Willow Natural Laundry Soap

Under the Willow, LLC has been making soap for over twenty years, so it was a natural progression to add a Natural Laundry Soap to our list of Earth-Friendly & Natural products.

When Whispering Willow Natural Laundry Soap was in development we wanted a "soap" NOT a "detergent"- we wanted a packaging that would NOT fill our landfills- AND we wanted a natural laundry soap that really worked- AND would never need fabric softener...

-All temperatures
-HE Friendly
-Re-useable muslin bag
-NO fabric softener needed. Ever.
-Created with natural ingredients

Please visit our online shop at:
