Seventh Generation : Going Green .

14 Jul

Baby and I were very happy to see that Costco is selling Seventh Generation! (: We first saw them in CHOOSE. My brother’s shop and have been wanting to try it! So we were running out of washing detergent, we decided to give it a shot, PLUS, it was cheaper than Dynamo! So it’s a win-win!

We immediately tried it and guess what? We loved it! (: It makes our clothes smell fresh and clean! And best of all, our clothes came out without the usual powder residues! We actually changed to using liquid detergent, as the powdered ones leave the residue on the dark coloured pieces. But to our surprise, this one doesn’t! So we’re happy!

So go on, give this a try! Can’t find it in Singapore? Click on CHOOSE. above! It’s worth every penny! Plus we’re helping the environment, so why not?
