1. Molly's Suds Laundry Powder is causing sudsing in the washer on clothes. Is this normal?
Yes. While the Laundry Powder does not have any chemicals that cause sudsing, it does get into the fibers and release build up from previous detergents and fabric softeners. It’s amazing how many toxins are stored in clothing fibers. As the build up is released, you will notice sudsing from the previous products used. It will stop after a few washes. You may also notice certain odors come out of the clothing. This is because of the synthetic musk companies use to mask odor, even fragrance free versions of detergents. It will also be released with the Molly’s Suds. 1/4- 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar in your fabric softener dispenser will help to release the build up and reduce static.
2. How much laundry powder should be used if the scoop is lost?
The scoop is 1 Tablespoon and it’s blue. It gets pushed down to the bottom of the Laundry Powder bag during transit sometimes. Use 1 kitchen tablespoon per load until you can recover your scoop.
3. Can Molly's Suds be used in very hard water?
It was formulated to work great in hard water. The magic chemistry with very hard water is HOT water, 2 scoops of Powder and 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar. The vinegar works as a mild acid and helps to dissolve the minerals in hard water.
4. Is Molly's Suds safe on sensitive skin?
Yes! Many of their customers have sensitive skin or eczema and that is why they use all Molly's Suds' products. There are no harsh or leaching chemicals and it is clean rinsing. It does not have fragrance or dyes.
5. Can the laundry powder be used in an HE machine?
Yes! It does best when you add it to the tub first and then toss in your laundry. In the very cold months you should wash in warm water. Soil is not released in water below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
6. Is the laundry powder safe for cloth diapers?
Yes! It’s been used by thousands of moms and dads that cloth diaper their children. It’s a great family Laundry Powder because it can be used on everything!
7. What is a good way to get rid of stains naturally?
Use tepid water and run it through the back of the stain. Add 1 drop of natural dish soap and rub it gently into the stain. Rinse and repeat. Make a paste of Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder with a few drops of water and rub it with friction into the stain, rinse under running water. The stain should be gone!
Always sort your laundry into colors, whites and lights. This helps whites stay white, while brights and lights retain their color. 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar in the main wash cycle helps “set” colors that bleed.
Use warm water for most laundry, but always check the care label and wash accordingly. Cold water in the winter months can drop below the recommended 70° for effective cleaning and does not allow for great stain removal or germ killing power.
Hot water is recommended for whites, linens, cloth diapers, clothing that has been exposed to flu virus, stomach virus/bacterias, etc. The hot water should be at 135°-140°, most water tank settings are at 120°.
Be sure to put the water temperature back down to a safe level (120° is recommended) to prevent scalding!
Add your laundry powders and liquids first to the tub and then add your laundry. For HE washers, you can add the powder to your washer’s tub, then add laundry and the liquids can go in your dispenser cup.
Use the All Sport in a spray bottle diluted 1:1 for super stain fighting power!
Dryers can cause some fibers to shrink. The best way to dry these articles of clothing is to toss them in the dryer and then after about 10 minutes pull them out, shake them, and hang them to dry.
The Wool Dryer Balls reduce the drying time in regular loads, and fluff and soften as they work!
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar in your main wash cycle helps hard water issues, kill bacteria, set colors, remove build up and bacteria-causing stink in the fibers of clothes.
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar in the rinse cycle helps to reduce static cling, remove build up, and soften laundry.
Wet Laundry Can Be Smelled:
When you first use Molly’s Suds you may notice some smells are appearing that didn’t seem to be there before. Their pure Laundry Powder lifts out the build up from your previous detergent and fabric softeners including a dangerous toxin called Galaxolide. It is a synthetic musk added to detergents and fools you into thinking your perfume, underarm odor and sweat stink is gone! It is simply covered up, it’s not right, so Molly's Suds does not try to trick their customers by adding in these toxic cover ups. To get rid of this stink and build up use 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar in your wash the first several loads, allow it to soak for an hour or so. The vinegar will also help to remove the build up in your washing machine. If you have stinky armpits, get the armpit of the shirt damp and apply a drop or two of natural dish soap or our All Sport and rub it in, let it sit and toss in the washer and odors will be gone! Deodorant and antiperspirant (mostly petroleum based) is the cause of the build up, it traps the odors. Try switching to a coconut oil based deodorant like Primal Pit Paste.
Pre-Treating Stains Is Key To Successful Stain Removing.
Rinse the stain with tepid water through the back of the stain. This pushes the protein out of the fabric instead of forcing it deep into the fibers! Add a drop of All Sport (or dish soap) and gently scrub by rubbing the fabric against itself. Rinse. Now add a sprinkle of baking soda and rub it in. Rinse. Now Repeat both steps. Done. It should be gone. If the stain sat too long before an intervention could be done, let the All Sport mixed with a little water sit on the stain until you are ready to do a load of laundry. The key is early intervention! Club soda works well instead of water for wine spills and hydrogen peroxide is great instead of water for red sauce-based stains.
Received hand-me-downs with old stains?
Hand-me-downs is a right of passage for most of us growing up. Sometimes they come with old grease-like spots or stains. The following steps will help to remove or at least make the stains unnoticeable! First you want to separate the colors from the lights. Start with the colors. Find the stain and get it damp. Apply a drop of All Sport or natural dish soap and rub it in with a soft toothbrush. Rinse. Repeat and let it sit for a few minutes. Add a small amount of vinegar, about 1/2 teaspoon and toss it aside moving on to the next item of clothing. After you have a pile of clothes treated, toss them into the washer and add 1 scoop Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder and wash as you would.
For the light colored/ clothing and whites, you will do the same exact method, but when you toss them in the washer, add 1 cup hydrogen peroxide or non-chlorine bleach (same thing as hydrogen peroxide but sold in detergent section). Let it soak for an hour or 2 and then wash as normal.
Grass and red clay are the hardest to get out of fabric even if you do use a harsh detergent. Molly's Suds recommends rubbing natural dish soap into the fabric or All Sport, pouring enough vinegar on it to cover the stain and then letting that sit for at least an hour. When about an hour has past, put the clothing item into just enough warm water to cover it and add 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar. It’s a mild acid, restores and renews colors and helps remove stains and build up! Let it soak for another hour. Then add 1 scoop Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder and wash as you normally would.
Athletic clothes stink?
They formulated Molly’s Suds All Sport with enzymes and plant based fatty acids that are non-toxic but super effective at getting out the stink! The key is a small load, cool water (not icy, not warm) and at least a 30-minute soak. Let it agitate for a minute, stop the cycle and let it soak. if you have a high efficiency machine, set your machine to pre-soak or soak the items in a utility sink or tub first, then wash as usual in your machine. All Sport is Ah-maz-ing!! Stinky shoes, stinky pits, stinky clothes… All Sport!
Cloth diaper stink is caused by: too much water in the cycle, too little water, too much detergent, too little detergent, soft water, hard water (usually the culprit), and/or not enough diapers in the wash, causing a lack of friction. So, let’s trouble shoot! It works best to do a hot rinse, a regular cycle wash with 2 scoops of Molly’s Suds Cloth Diaper Laundry Powder, and then a rinse with no powder. If you are still getting stink, run less water in your machine or add more diapers. They need friction. You can use 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar in the load; it helps with ammonia issues and build up if you are just switching to Molly’s Suds. Stripping diapers is a last resort. Most all issues are resolved after a few washes. It’s usually because the natural Molly’s Suds is pulling build up out of the diapers from the previous products used. Most of the brands for cloth diapers on the market today contain fillers or fragrance.
What Can Be Added?
Baking soda, distilled white vinegar… you can add anything you’d like to or are already in the habit of doing in your laundry regimen. Molly's Suds recommends 1/4-1/2 distilled white vinegar with towels and sheets because it has antiviral, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Never add bleach and vinegar in the same load – it’s a caustic and toxic hazard to human life.
How Do Whites Get Whiter?
Dingy whites after switching to Molly’s Suds means you were previously using a product that had optical whiteners in it, along with a list of other toxic ingredients. Mineral deposits in the fabric and in hard water cause dingy whites. Check out their new Oxygen Whitener, which uses sodium per carbonate and other earth derived ingredients to aid in breaking down the hard water minerals and bring back your whites! Follow up by hanging clothes to dry in the sun, which naturally bleaches them; it really does work!
Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder was formulated with a “no compromise” attitude, and they only use the purest of ingredients. Their products and suppliers are Certified Cruelty Free by Leaping Bunny, and their ingredients are Certified Vegan.
While there is sodium carbonate in their powder, it is not Super Washing Soda which has contaminants and is not pure without fillers. They use a sustainable trona source located in the Green River Basin in Wyoming. Their sodium carbonate is safe for use in medicinal and food ingredients.
Most detergent companies use sodium carbonates that are synthetically processed with trona, glass and manmade chemicals and sold for laundry and industrial use. It is harsh, unclean and cheap.
Their powder is phthalate and fragrance free, but they do use wild crafted organic peppermint oil as a fresh take on scent! It is safe for use in food preparation and only a very small amount is used per large batch. The powder can be ordered without the oil if desired.
Their sea salt and epsom salts are triple filtered in the USA and certified contaminant free, both certified safe for use in organic formulations. Their baking soda is aluminum free and also food grade.
About Molly's Suds
Molly's Suds came about in a very unexpected way. Their daughter Molly was born in 2005 but she never took a breath. As a pediatric nurse and mother to three other healthy children, this was not just a tragedy, it was a shock. We knew Molly was serving her mighty God, but the nurse in me yearned to know what could have caused her stillbirth. She began to read everything she could about stillbirths and uncovered a disturbing fact that would change our lives. In the United States alone 80,000 chemicals were approved for use by the TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act) and yet only 200 of the toxins were tested for human safety. Each year the list of chemicals change. There was a European study done that proves mothers pass chemicals to their babies via pregnancy and breast milk. Newborn baby cord blood and amniotic fluid had multiple non-natural toxins detected in it, as many as 240 chemicals in cord blood have been found! More than 120 of the chemicals were from toxins in food, personal care, household and environmental products. Molly knew right then, we had a responsibility to teach others about these toxins, and to make a difference.
As consumers, we think about what we eat, but not about what we allow to touch our skin and how the ingredients can and do leach into our bloodstream! For example, detergent ingredients like ionic surfactants, are the most persistent in the environment and change the sex of our fish and Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE’s), which have been banned in Canada and Europe, imitate the hormone estrogen in our bodies which effect our health and fetal development. These chemicals are found in our drinking water because they are not completely biodegradable. So the decision was made to create Laundry Powder and other household products that are truly safe for humans. Molly’s little footprints are on our website and all of our packaging to remind you that our products are safe for even your tiniest family member.
