Stink Pot Laundry detergent

Stink Pot Laundry Detergent

I often find myself questioning whether or not my laundry soap could be the culprit to any woes that we have when it comes to cloth diapering. I have tried several different detergents to try and keep my diapers fresh, non repelling, and not get that ammonia stink right after a tinkle.

I am very particular about my laundry(just ask my husband-he isn't allowed to do any) AND my cloth diapers, so any time I get the chance to review laundry soap, I'll admit, I get a little nervous. So does Kynlie. She has sensitive skin and any change in detergent can cause a severe flair up of a little tush. She is my main tester when it comes to all things fluffy.

I was given the opportunity to review StinkPot cloth diaper detergent. I had gone online to read up on it a little bit and was quite impressed with so much, that I knew I wanted to share it with you.

First of all, StinkPot is a family run business. (A huge plus in my book) Laura and her husband started Shower Treat Soaps back in 1997 when their kids were little. Now days, the whole family is involved! Laura makes the soaps all by hand and from scratch, her husband "is the muscle of the operation", her daughter helps with packaging labels and her son helps with all the techy stuff!

After being asked by a lot of cloth diapering mamas, and some rigorous testing, they came up with StinkPot. StinkPot is made from sodium carbonate, sodium percarbonate, sodium borate, sodium cocoate, a natural chelating agent, and essential oils if requested. It is completely vegan and not tested on animals. There are three scents to choose from: Lullabye Lavender,Sweet Nothings Unscented and Tangerine Dream-which is what I was sent for review.

When I first got my package in the mail, I couldn't wait to smell it! It smelled so yummy! It made me smile every time I had to wash another load of poo'd up diapers! The neat thing about the scent is that it smells so good while it is washing but it comes out completely so your diapers are left smelling fresh.

I have tested StinkPot for about three weeks now and here are some things that I love about it!
-smells great
-easy to open/close packaging
-includes a "scooper"
-only need to use one tablespoon per load
-fine powder formula
-left the diapers feeling extra fluffy and soft
-works with hard/soft/regular water without adding extra!
-the scent wafted throughout our laundry room while washing and my daughter asked "what smells so good?"
-It is made in my home state of Michigan!
-Only 12.99 for 50/100 loads!

Some concerns:
-I had some repelling issues a few days after I switched to StinkPot but I had not done an overnight soak in StinkPot as my original wash with it. (I recommend this when switching between any detergents) I did an RLR treatment and have not had any issues since.
I think detergents on cloth diapers are a lot like shampoo-you have to switch it up once in a while or you get build up. I think that may be the case from the repelling.

You can purchase your StinkPot at this website: StinkPot
There are samples, small, medium, large and extra large sizes! Lots to choose from!

Overall, I am very impressed with StinkPot. I love the fact that Laura's whole family is involved and that she makes each "batch" by hand and scratch. You can tell this family loves what they do and is proud of it! The scents are great as well!

This was so the Devil could use him as a tool for [the Devil's] sexual
pleasure which, "the Devil needs this sex energy to be strong. In order to call out the spirits properly and send the souls to hell or heaven a fixed point in the room is needed, the altar will serve as such. Though there are proves that horny goat weed improves sexual performance boosting libido, the plant's effect on increased testosterone level and muscular quantity was not documented.
