My Green Fills is YOUR Natural Detergent Choice!

You do your best to take care of your family and the Earth.  You avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning your home and seek out ways to recycle and reuse your resources.  But did you realize the plastic laundry jug you are using does NOT get recycled? 

 In one year, the United States alone uses enough jugs to circle the planet SIX TIMES, most of which never get recycled and end up in the ocean, polluting our beaches and killing animals.  Fortunately, there is an answer:

All MyGreenFills products are 100% non-toxic, hypoallergenic, great for HE washers, effective in cold water, affordable (less than 12 cents per load!) and 2X concentrated (50 loads per soap jug!)…  and BEST of all, refillable (One jug and done!)

Going green has never been so simple. With MyGreenFills, you will use the last laundry soap jug you'll ever need! 

Selestial began in 2008 when the Founder, Ruth, was tasked with finding green products that were effective and affordable for her children who suffered from severe skin allergies.  Meanwhile, Stephen, CEO was sick of using toxic chemicals in his home.  The two met and joined forces with a simple mission: create affordable, simple and effective eco-friendlylaundry cleaning products so all families can thrive!

We were sent the full line of My Green Fills laundry line to review: 

Unscented Laundry Soap
Everything you need in a laundry detergent, without the harsh chemicals and waste. This detergent is Nontoxic, Hypoallergenic, and 100% Natural. It is designed for standard and HE machines(use half the amount), and you can get 50 loads from each 2.5 oz. packet! It's 3x Concentrated power REALLY cleans great, without any harshness you don't need. Plus you can use it as a stain lifter, prior to washing! I washed my clothes, towels and blankets with the detergent, and all came out wonderfully clean and SOFT!  I was really amazed at how WELL it cleaned! And it was so easy to just fill the jug with lukewarm water, add the packet and shake to mix! Ingredients include: Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Chloride, Tetra Sodium Salt, and Sodium Citrate

, Color Safe Brightener Detergent 

This non toxic bleach alternative detergent will leave your whites and colors looking vibrant! It also is Nontoxic, Hypoallergenic, and 100% Natural. With it's concentrated power, you get brightness with the power of oxygen, and no chemicals or optical brighteners, you get REAL clean!! One refill should last you for 25 loads. Ingredients include Potassium Persulfate Salt (Oxygen Booster). I used this on Miss Grace's clothes, including the last load of her school uniforms,and the whites. I was really impressed with how well it got minor stains out of her clothes, while keeping them bright! Even the whites seemed brighter than normal! Color me impressed!

Fabric Softener 

This all Natural Fabric Softener is Nontoxic, Hypoallergenic, and 100% Natural- free of dyes and perfumes that can aggravate your allergies! It's concentrated formula can last you for 50 loads (use half the amount for HE washers), while it reduces static and softens your laundry, just like the softener you've used for years. But it does it without harsh chemicals and fake scents. Ingredients include: Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Tetra Sodium Salt, Potassium Sorbate, Organic Essential Oils (Including Lemon Tea Tree & Lavender). I really LOVE that the product has the 3 essential oils in it! They are natural scents that help to repel bugs (good for when you're outside!) AND that provide calming, relaxing moods. We all loved the mild scent, and I have to admit the towels were JUST as soft and absorbent, and the clothes static free, as when I use any non-natural softener. I am sold on this softener! 

 Enzyme Stain Remover

Perhaps my FAVORITE item- this stain remover will cut through your toughest stains, while staying safe and gentle on clothes. Also Nontoxic, Hypoallergenic, and 100% Natural, it uses the power of natural enzymes to safely digest stains, providing powerful, concentrated stain removing cleaning power to your laundry! The 2.5 oz refill will last for 50 loads. This wonderful stain remover comes with an adorable jar and mini scoop, so you can have it sitting on the shelf by your laundry detergent, ready to use. It definitely got used on Miss Grace's dirt and grass stained play clothes, as well as for cleaning towels that were pretty nasty. ALL came clean. I was really surprised at how WELL it lifted the ugly stains, without having to sit on the stains themselves! Ingredients include : Sodium Bicarbonate and an Enzyme Blend, 

Overall I was REALLY impressed with how well the My Green Fills laundry products worked! It seems so SIMPLE. These are the products our ancestors used to clean their clothes, and they WORKED, juts like they do now. Why did we have to make things so complicated? Lately we've all gotten more sensitive to chemicals (I'm fighting an allergy to hair dye right now for example), and I know it is because the more chemicals we take OUT of our lives, our bodies have higher immune systems, that recognize bad stuff more readily! Once you try these products you will be sold too!

It is SO easy to join My Green Fills and never run out of laundry products! You just sign up, make your selections and your products are delivered right to your door. And once you set your delivery schedule, you never need to worry about running out again! It is so nice to be able to just pull a packet (!!) out of the drawer and make detergent AS you need it! No large jugs taking up valuable shelf/closet space! After your initial order, which includes the color coded jug (so you know which is which), you'll only receive the packets in your shipments. And with FREE shipping, you have one less worry too! Plus discounts are available when you buy 3 or more refills at one time. 

Besides Laundry products, My Green Fills also has natural products, under their Selestial Soap Line,  that you REALLY need this Summer:

I'll Fly Away - Non-Toxic Insect Repellent

This insect repellent is 100% Naturally Non-Toxic and Deet FREE! Mosquitos and Black Flies absolutely hate this stuff! It has the pleasant smell of eucalyptus, tea tree, and citronella infused with aloe vera. All you do is spray it on your clothing and hair, and any exposed skin (avoid the eyes), and magically you are in your own mosquito free zone! Seriously. I've tried this on multiple nights after it's rained and the little buggers are out in droves, and I walked out and came back in with ZERO bites! Woo Hoo! You do have to reapply after swimming, or other water activity, but it is so pleasant smelling, you won't mind. Even Miss Grace can handle the scent! 

Bye Bye Doo Doo - Non-Toxic Deoderizer

This spray deoderizer is 100% Naturally Non-Toxic and is perfect for eliminating odors like smoke, animal, baby, cooking and more! It is Non-Toxic, and works at a molecular level to break down odors, and leave a pleasant lavender/lemon freshness behind. Tgey are loojing at changing the name, but it does what it says! It is made from Water, Potassium Sorbate and Essential Oils (lemongrass, lavener and citrus), so you have no worries about what you are spraying in the air that you, and your family,  breathe! It quickly gets rid of odors and you may find yourself wanting multiple bottles, so you can carry one around with you everywhere! 

They also have PROTECT- a natural sunscreen available alone and with insect repellent in ONE ALL naturall product! You definitely need that one your Summer vacation plans! 

Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more new product alerts, specials and fun facts! Once you try all these products I you will be hooked, like we are! 


  1. I do recycle my laundry jugs, but I had no idea that sooo many don't. I believe it though. For example, my sister lives in an apartment complex that doesn't offer recycling by the dumpster. She would save them, but realistically she doesn't have room. So I just love this concept! Their products sound awesome for people and the earth which I'm all for. I'd have to check them out to see if it makes sense financially for my husband and I, but I know several people with large families that it might be just perfect for. Thanks for the heads up!
