Award-Winning Children's book — MamaSuds Laundry Soap

MamaSuds Laundry Soap

Doing Laundry is the Worst.

Am I right? Not only is doing laundry the worst, but you’ve also just spent an insane amount of time searching for a safe option for your family. How long did you spend searching- days? weeks? months?

The search is over. Our formulation is based on our own need for a laundry soap that would clean our cloth diapers (so yeah, think about how well it must work) yet it had to be gentle enough to not irritate our baby’s skin. We didn’t want to add to the labor of laundry by using two different detergents. On top of it all, we had hard water.

If MamaSuds Laundry Soap can clean cloth diapers, imagine how it can clean your regular laundry.

Ingredients: water, potassium olivate (saponified olive oil), sodium carbonate, and sodium borate
16 fluid ounces (sample bottle only available in unscented) or a 64 fluid ounce BPA-free + recyclable bottle.

  • Options for unscented, or pure lavender or lemon essential oil
  • HE safe
  • SLS-free, Dye-free, phthalate-free
  • Biodegradable and safe for septic systems
  • Free of any synthetic ingredients
  • 64 fluid ounce bottle will do up to 128 loads of laundry
