A Blizzard of Thanks to My First Sponsors!

Did you know that his month I welcomed my first two sponsors at The Borrowed Abode?

I’m saving up to get a professional blog redesign and decided, after much deliberation, to take on a small number of relevant advertisers to help make it more affordable.   I hope you’ll take a moment to check them out!

Sponsor Thank You

Old Town Suds, based out of Alexandria, VA, offers eco-friendly laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, and soap made without the use of harsh chemicals.  The products are safe for babies, cloth diapers, and people with sensitivities!

Old Town Suds began in 2011 out of the the need to remove unneeded chemicals from everyday use. After some research and several successful experiments later the Sudsologist, Steffanie, found several ways to incorporate eco-friendly homemade cleaners into her family’s everyday lifestyle. Many successful loads of laundry and clean-ups later, Steffanie decided she needed to share the products she created and Old Town Suds was formed.

Old Town Suds Eco Products

I can personally attest to how fabulous they are; I have tried several of them and I especially love the Old Town Suds laundry detergent!  A tiny scoop gets even my stinky dog laundry clean, and my entire basement smells so good in the process that it actually has me wanting to do more laundry.  This eco-friendly detergent replaces your traditional detergent and fabric softener – it is the all-in-one that does not use any pesky chemicals that cause allergic reactions, degradation of fabrics and cause chemical smells after the clothes are washed.

The products shown above are available in the Old Town Suds Etsy Shop!  Clockwise, from top left:  EcoFriendly Laundry Detergent, Prince Street Calendula Soap, EcoFriendly All-Purpose Cleaner, and the 1st Street Shampoo Bar.
