Give your laundry a citrus scent

Yum. Yum. Yum. I’m a sucker for citrus scents, and the delectable Valencia Orange fragrance of this “CitraSuds” natural plant-based laundry detergent from Homesolv could not be more cheerful and uplifting, in my opinion.

It’s apparently made with less water than traditional detergents, which means it’s both lighter to carry and easier to store, and uses less packaging, which is better for the environment. But it still does 33 standard loads of laundry or 50 in a high-efficiency machine.

Scented with essential oils, it contains no bleach, phosphates, synthetic perfumes or optical brighteners, and is both cuelty-free and vegan.

$10.99, Nature’s Temptations, 32 Prospect Street, Ridgefield. (203) 438-5443
