I am a big supporter of protecting the environment. Whenever I can, I get products that are eco-friendly as my way to truly live my belief. For a detergent to be considered eco-friendly, it must be made with renewable resources like naturally softened water, are biodegradable, and has no artificial fragrances or dyes. I have used some brands of eco-friendly laundry detergents and below am my review of my top 6 green-cleaning products.
