Nellie’s All Natural Oxygen Brightener Review and EcoMom.com Giveaway

With kids, as many of you know, it is impossible to keep new clothes looking new.

Between food and well…..just life, those whites turn pearl colored and the colors seem about 5 shades off from where they started! It is just quite depressing.

I was blessed enough to have Jody with Ecomom.com send me Nellie’s All Natural Oxygen Brightener to review.

First I must say how adorable the packaging of the product is! It is a small vintage looking tin – I will definitely be repurposing the tin as soon as the product is gone! Why do they use metal packaging? Because iron and steel are the world’s most recycled materials and amongst the most to reprocess!


















A natural oxygen brightener, not bleach, I was optimistic. It is a grainy white powder, not a liquid. Why? Liquid detergents are made up from at least 50% water – What a waste of water!

Although I did not see an immediate brightening of my clothes in the initial wash, I must say that after using the product a couple times with the same clothes, I did see a slight change in the color. (Note: I did not waste water to review this product…I waited until those same clothes had been worn again).

For a natural product, I was impressed with the effectiveness as a brightening alternative to conventional methods such as bleach or detergents riddled with chemicals. Nellie’s All-Natural Oxygen Brightener is color safe, chlorine free, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, septic safe, eco-friendly and removes stains and odors!











A little about Ecomom.com – the sponsor of this review and giveaway. Founded to address the connection between the health of our environment and the health of our children, EcoMom is committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, and rewarding. By helping women begin to take better care of themselves and their families – with education, support, tools and products - we empower them to take the all important first steps toward a healthier, more balanced, and sustainable lifestyle.

EcoMom.com is about bridging the gap between making healthy choices and making easy choices. We created EcoMom because we care and are concerned for babies and their moms, our families and our communities.
