I got my Crunchy clean, and I'm not sure I'm a fan

It smells nice (baby bee) but WAY too strong. ?I think I got used to unscented detergent, and now it drives me nuts. ?

Does the smell get less overpowering after a while? My whole basement smells!?

  • If you leave the bag open, the scent will dissipate.  Even at full strength (smell-wise), your laundry probably won't smell like the scent after it's finished with the wash/dry cycle. 
  • Thanks Glad, I'll try that.

    Btw, did you see my post below? I LOVE my diaper! ?got it today and it is so pretty and so soft! ?I can't wait to put it on Anna. ??

    This.

    Also, some scents are far more fragrant than others.  A lot of the scents people rave about on here are not my favorites because they do have a stronger scent.  I try a different scent almost every time so I can find The One.  Haven't yet found one I dislike, but some are more subtle than others (more my preference).

    I don't like ordering small quantities, so I probably have enough until the end of the summer, lol. ?But I'll try a different smell next time :)?

  • It's never a good idea to order mass quantities of anything without sampling it first.  I order Crisp & Candied and Apple Vanilla and looooove the way it makes my whole basement smell like cinnamon and apples.  I *wish* it smelled stronger on the clothes.

     You should probably try one of the EO scents, something that smells more "natural" if you don't like the sweeter fragrances.

    I like the smell, I just don't like how MUCH it smells. ?I find it annoying, but it is really not the end of the world. ?

    I just find that shipping small quantities across the continent kinda defeats the EFpurpose, ya know??

    Yeah I always buy a full size myself, and buy one diaper, one regular each time.  Only once have I passed ont he bag to a friend because the scent was too much for me.  I usually let it air out and then use until the end.  I pour into glass canisters so overnight I can leave open and the bag does hold some of the scent.

  • Do you guys really only use 1/2 tablespoon for HE machines? It seems like so little. Does it get the dipes clean?

    THIS. When I washed my diapers they didn't come out with a scent at all but I did an extra rinse on them too.?
