Queen of Suds- Laundry Detergent for a Cause

I had the opportunity to meet and get to know a really sweet, awesome lady named Melanie through my job as a hairstylist. She was a walk-in client one day and has since been coming back to me to get her hair done. Every time she sits in my chair, I thoroughly enjoy her. I can tell in the short time I've known her that she is kind, caring, and extremely strong. After doing her hair a couple of times and doing her husband's hair, I learned their story. This is her story:

Every one has a story behind what they do… Ours began almost two years ago when my husband Daniel was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. I began looking for ways to cut back our expenses in every way possible. However, with five children at home, it was difficult to cut back much. I began looking for ways to decrease my spending at the grocery store. One day I came across a recipe to make my own laundry detergent and decided to try it with the exception of a few tweaks to make it my own. I was amazed that the fresh clean scent filled my home as I did laundry. I instantly fell in love with this detergent for two reasons, its cost effective and it smelled fabulous. I decided to share my detergent with my friends and get their opinions-they loved it too and immediately offered to buy some. I thought maybe I could make and sell my detergent to earn some extra money to help with our expenses.
Queen of Suds is handmade using a low suds formula of grated fels naptha soap, sodium tetra-borate (borax), sodium carbonate (washing soda), and softener. Queen of Suds is very cost effective and great for all of your machine washables it is tough on dirt but gentle on your clothes. I haven’t used bleach on my whites since using Queen of Suds detergent. Queen of Suds is suitable for use in HE machines. The best part about Queen of Suds is that a little bit really does go a long way, all you need is ½ tablespoon for a small load, 1 tablespoon for a regular load of laundry and 2 tablespoons of detergent per large load. My detergent is hand grated and mixed in small batches to allow customers to receive only the freshest detergent. I absolutely love this detergent and I hope that you will too. Please note every time you use your Queen of Suds laundry detergent you are helping to wash away cancer one load at a time. Your purchase will help pay for Daniel’s medical expenses. Who would of thought just by simply doing laundry could actually help someone else?

While doing Melanie's hair on Tuesday, she informed me that her husband's cancer has come back. This is her latest update on her facebook page:

UPDATE AS PROMISED: we went to see Dr. McCurdy today and we learned that the cancer is back in his colon. It is where the first recession was done. Daniel will go in for surgery next Wednesday Jan. 30th. Please cover my husband with your prayers. Those who know him know how well he has handled all of this over the past two years. He is one of the most wonderful men I know. He is big and strong on the outside but inside he is a giant teddy bear with a ton of courage. He does not ever hesitate to do good and help others every chance he gets. He really does have a heart of gold. I tend to be a "fixer" and it breaks my heart that I can't fix this. I do know we have an AWESOME God and I believe in miracles and the power of prayer. Thank you all my prayer warriors.
Hearing this totally broke my heart. After leaving work, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I felt like God was calling me to help. After thinking about it for a long time, I realized that using my blog for a greater cause was a great idea.  That's what I love most about blogs.
So blog readers, I need your help...whether it be buying a jar of laundry detergent, donating what you can, or just sending up a prayer for their family, I encourage you to make a difference for this family.
Anything will help and is greatly appreciated.

  1. I just completed my first two loads with this soap and it's great. I've been a tide liquid girl for 15 years...this is better.
