Dizolve Laundry detergent strips review and Giveaway

Dizolve Laundry detergent isn't your regular detergent.. its BETTER!!

A little info on Dizolve
  • Small and light, easy to carry and store
  • No waste, no messy spills
  • Dissolves completely in hot or cold water
  • For H.E. and standard machines
  • Hypoallergenic for sensitive skin
  • Free of 1,4-dioxane
  • Phosphate-free
  • Biodegradable
  • Safe for septics
when I first received Dizolve, I looked in the little box and thought to myself.. How can 1 little strip clean my clothes properly?
The first time I used Dizolve, I turned on the washing machine like always, as the washer was filling I ripped 2 strips off (the clothes were pretty dirty from a hot afternoon playing in the sand and dirt at the park) and dropped it into the water. I was watching the strips dissolve in the water, I see it looks like its not dissolving, so I stick my hand in and try and grab it.. as I go to grab it, it broke apart in lots of pieces. It looked like when you put a square of toilet paper in a lot of water then try and grab it. (which is a good thing) as it started to dissolve more I proceeded to add in the clothes and let it to its thing. At this point the water was filthy already and it wasn't even done filling up

after the wash was done, I checked out the clothes. they looked and smelled clean, but I was still skeptical.. so, I decided to give the clothes another wash, just in case. This time I only used 1 strip, looked at the water and its CLEAR. The 2 strips I put in the first time did exactly what it was supposed to and it cleaned the clothes.

after trying it out for a month, I really love Dizolve. I don't have to clean up any spills, I wont get a headache from the smell of it or lift a heavy jug of detergent. Just a small box that fits anywhere.

I box contains 72 strips which means UP TO 72 Loads of laundry. If you want to be even more eco-friendly, you can reuse the box to hold cards,crayons or little pieces of papers that you don't want to throw out but don't know where to put.

I love that it is Hypoallergenic, I don't have to worry about having to wash my kids clothing separately with a different detergent.

Not only is it Hypoallergenic, but it is free of colour dyes and safe for septics and ITS MADE IN CANADA!!

You can purchase Dizolve on their site HERE a portion of your purchase supports the environmental youth education programs of the  Sierra Club Canada or another fundraising cause of your choice.

Killing Lincoln Review

Based on The New York Times best-selling novel, "Killing Lincoln" is the suspenseful, eye-opening story of the events surrounding the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While some aspects of the plot to slay Lincoln and cripple the newly forming union are widely known, much more of the history unfolds in this insightful thriller. As actor John Wilkes Booth becomes increasingly obsessed with removing Lincoln from office, a secret cabal forms, and ultimately empowers Booth to carry out an event that will change America forever. Narrated by Oscar(R) Winner Tom Hanks and produced by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, this historical masterpiece stars Billy Campbell (TV's "The Killing") in a spectacular turn as President Lincoln.
