Laundry has never been something to get excited about. It's always been a chore. That goes for buying the detergent too. Most of us still shop the big brands, not knowing why we're picking one over the other as we stare at the laundry aisle shelf (they all feel the same, just "blah").
Have you ever really thought about what's in these detergents? And why do they all smell the same? It's because they all contain the same thing: chemicals.
Chemical detergents are bad for the environment, can cause negative effects on our health, and even affect our clothes.
But thanks to new innovative companies like Frey, laundry can feel like self-care. Frey's laundry products are all eco-friendly, but the most exciting part is that they make your clothes smell amazing.
According to Forbes, "Frey's detergent concentrate is free of harsh chemicals, parabens, dyes and phosphates, plus comes in smaller bottles, which results in 70% less plastic than most brands"
With 7000+ five-star reviews, our editors wanted to try Frey's products to see if they were really that great. Here's what we found:
First of all, they offer FREE samples before you commit to buying. You just need to pay the $1 for shipping. The scents you sample are their top-rated: Sandalwood, Bergamot, Clove; Jasmine, Rose, White Cedar; and Cedarwood, Oakmoss, Amber.
When our sample arrived we couldn't wait to test it out. It would be our first time using a laundry detergent with plant-derived ingredients, so we'll admit we were a little skeptical of how it would work.
We put on our load with the Frey detergent and when we opened up the washing machine we immediately smelt the Sandalwood. It was different from the harsh chemical or over perfumy smell we were used to.
We loved laughing at some of the customer reviews ahead of time, things like " Freysmells like a nomad wizard lumberjack rescued me from a logging accident in an enchanted forest". And while it didn't quite do that for us, we did absolutely love the fragrance, especially when we smelled our towels or laid down in our sheets.
Our clothes were just as clean as they would have been with our regular detergent, without any of the harsh chemicals. Frey's revolutionary formula is designed to keep your clothing looking better for longer. We definitely noticed a difference!
Our clothes were clean, soft, and smelt… glorious. We were even asked if we were wearing a new scent (nope, it's just our Frey laundry detergent!).
The other scents are just as refreshing. Even without the harsh chemicals we still get that "clean" smell from Frey's detergent.
After our trials, we went on and ordered the Frey laundry detergent and fabric softener in the Cedarwood, Oakmoss, Amber scent (although picking which fragrance was a hard choice). Their full-size laundry detergent and fabric softener both last for 50 loads (which is similar to your store-bought detergent). It's just $31.50 for both, which felt like a great deal.
Plus, they offer many different bundles so you can get more products and save. They also offer fabric softener, dryer sheets, stain remover, and wrinkle releaser. You can get all of them in their gorgeous scents.
Another cool thing about Frey is that if you notice you're about to run out of something you can just send them a text message to re-order. No signing in or filling out any details. We found this to be super convenient.
But it doesn't stop at laundry, Freyis here for all of your natural products needs. They offer personal care items like deodorant, shampoo & conditioner, body wash, hand soap, hand cream, sanitizer, shaving lotion, plus more chemical-free products.
If you weren't already impressed with Frey's eco-friendly product offerings, then know that that's not all they do to help the environment. For every order that is placed, they plant a tree.
Basically, Frey's products are good for your clothes, good for you, and good for the world. It's a triple win. Frey gets our seal of approval!
