So on the natural cleaning home front I am currently doing research trying to find a laundry detergent. The problem I'm running into is, I'm trying to find one that is vegan. "You're vegan!?" you ask? Well not really... I would probably be if it wasn't for my addiction to sushi but I try and keep it as animal friendly as possible. I make sure my eggs are USDA certified organic which mandates that they are not only cage free but have access to outdoors and I try my best to make sure companies I buy products from have cruelty-free practices. But that's another blog for another day, back to the detergent search... I was all for making my own using a combination of washing soda, Borax and pure soap but the safety of Borax is questionable and both Borax and the popular brand of washing soda I have read both test on animals sooo.... I found a detergent brand called Crunchy Clean and sent them an email asking them if they are vegan and I received a same day response of a yes and a smile! So I think I'll do a bit more research on making my own and if I don't like the information I find then I'll probably go with Crunchy Clean!
