June 30th | older posts


an idea i’ve had simmering for quite some time has finally made its way into reality and i have been so SO excited to share it with you.  hand-drawn images of laundry hung from a clothesline are hand-stamped onto sterling (1/2″) dics.  so sweet. so whimsical. so simple.  and we are giving two laundry line necklaces away.  leave a comment and tell us what kind of laundry detergent you use.  and of course, you can see more details about the new necklace HERE.

    I just started using soap nuts, and so far I am pleased with them, but I am keeping a backup bottle of Purex Free N Clear around for my hubby to do his laundry. I’m just happy he can do his own laundry, and trying to get him to convert to soap nuts is just too much! very sweet necklace.

  2. Shilo Cain says:

    Tide…all the way!

  3. Cindie says:

    we use tide free here – for the front load washer… super cute necklace!

  4. Candi says:

    We are a sensitive skin family and either use ALL Free and Clear or Dreft. My 17 month old has very bad allergies and we need to keep things simple for her (and we are expecting daughter #2 in 5 weeks and of course want her clothing washed without fragrance or dyes!). The laundry line necklace is beyond precious and congrats on bringing your beautiful design to life!

    Hi Lisa!

    I’m a fairly new reader but I am absolutely in LOVE with your work (both your jewelry and your photography). I’d love to get in on this contest! I am a Tide girl…love how it makes my clothes smell!

    Thanks for your awesome work!

  6. Kim H says:

    Oh my heck these are just adorable! I am GAIN gal 😉

  7. sheila says:

    arm and hammer for sensitive skin

  8. Jamie says:

    Love the new necklace, it is Adorable!! We use Purex over here to make our colors bright and whites white, :)

  9. Stacey Schmouth says:

    I use tide with frebreze in it. I absolutely love how it smells fresh like summer. My 2 1/2 year old daughter loves to help me with the laundry. she helps me carry it from the washer to the dryer and “helps me fold it”. I do take advantage a little because one day she will not want to help mommy with it anymore. i think the way you write, take pictures and make jewlery are such an inspiration not only to mothers but to everyone. i enjoy looking at your page everyday.

  10. Carolyn says:

    So cute! We use dreft for the baby and Era for the rest of us! How fun!

  11. Jami says:

    I love the new necklace! PRECIOUS, and represents every day life in our house for sure! We have to use free and clear detergent. I don’t care which brand, whatever is on sale or I have a coupon for, but it has to be free and clear for all the sensitive types in my family.

  12. Jen Nichols says:

    we use the environmentally friendly Costco brand–it’s vanilla lavender and gets the clothes super clean! necklace is AWESOME!

  13. Emily says:

    So cute! We use the high-efficiency Tide Free… Or perhaps it’s the All Free? Comes in a white bottle- that much I know!

  14. Joanie says:

    Trader Joe’s lavender. I WANT THIS NECKLACE!!!!!!

  15. Lindsay says:

    Love the new design!! LOVE it!
    We’re a GAIN family … and the Costco brand {free & clear} … as long as it cleans the clothes, we love it :)

    Happy Summer Lisa & family!

  16. Kristen says:

    Arm and Hammer’s Essentials

  17. rachael s says:

    i used to use arm + hammer, but lately i have been using purex natural elements.

  18. Dianne says:

    I use a new brand called ECOS…it smells like Lavender. Works pretty good too.

  19. Tara says:

    SO sweet! I use Arm & Hammer. Smells delicious…

  20. I’ve been using the Norwex product for the last year.

  21. Danielle says:

    That’s so cute, it makes my womb giddy.

    I use Trader Joes brand

  22. Kristy says:

    We use Tide for the front load washer and LOVE the smell of fresh laundry.
    The necklace is adorable!

  23. Courtney says:

    Mostly Tide, but they change their scents too often!

  24. Jennifer says:

    Gain here! Love the newly inspired necklace!

  25. Cristina says:

    We use those new Purex laundry sheets that go from the washer to the drier. I like them so far

  26. Leslie says:

    I use Trader Joe’s because it smells like lavender and cleans grass stains out of boys’ pants!

  27. Kristi says:

    We use All Free & Clear for our sensitive skin:) Love the new design.

  28. Janelle Eller says:

    I’m a Tide girl!

  29. Maya says:

    I use tide :)

    The new necklace is adorable! So sweet!

  30. Anna says:

    SO cute! I use ECOS laundry detergent…

  31. Trish says:

    Gain! It’s cheap and makes my clothes smell yummy!
    Love the new necklace!

  32. Denise C. says:

    I use Arm & Hammer on all of our clothes. It works wonders on getting stains out, and not making colors fade!

    Love the new necklace! :)

  33. Jenifer Terrizzi says:

    Such a cute necklace! I use Shaklee’s Liquid L for my cloth diapers and baby loads and Seventh Generation White Flower & Bergamot Citrus Liquid for everything else. :)

  34. Martha L. says:

    Tide 4 sur! I would luv a laundry line necklace to match my ever-lasting laundry line in my ackyard in the summer.

  35. Lynette says:

    Gain! Love the smell!

    Supe cute necklace!

  36. Amanda says:

    What a cute new idea!! I go back and forth between Gain and Tide (whatever is on sale!)!!

  37. Jennifer says:

    Always use ALL Small and Mighty (for the environment) Free & Clear (for my toddler’s sensitive skin).

  38. Chris Peden says:

    I am going green, so it is Seventh Generation, unless it is a really dirty. Gardening and sports clothing still get Tide-unscented for my daughter as the other stuff makes her sneeze.

    Fantastic new line! Love it!!

  39. Jen says:

    Tide “spring renewal” with Febreze…mmmm…makes my sheets smell wonderful! I’m also loving Meyer’s (lavender scent) which I found at New Frontiers. It’s expensive, but worth it!

  40. Judy says:

    how cute is that….I use tide right now but I am gonna try gain because I had a coupon

  41. Julie says:

    That is soooooo c-u-t-e!!!!! I use Sam’s Club HE. Basically a generic Tide but much less expensive.

  42. Amber says:

    Tide unscented…or whatever is cheapest at Costco.

  43. Jill says:

    Such a cute idea! I’m a Tide girl!

  44. Elizabeth Lamb says:

    Arm and Hammer natural and Purex
    GREAT necklaces; love the originality

  45. Kristy V says:

    We use All free and clear! I love the little charm with the boxers. Too cute!

  46. Amy says:

    I have been making my own detergent for the last 6 months. I just made a batch today!!! I love the process of making it knowing what ingredients are used to launder the clothes my family wears. This necklace would symbolize so much for me. Absolutely fabulous!

  47. What a cute idea!

    Right now we are using some arm & hammer something or other. My husband bought a big box of it for a garage project and gave me what was left over. Usually we go with Costco’s Kirkland brand laundry detergent.

  48. Andrea T. :) says:

    So, so, so sweet … love this!!

    We use anything “free and clear” of dyes and perfumes. Usually it’s ALL, but sometimes Tide or Kirkland’s Environmentally Friendly laundry soap.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  49. Kathy says:

    Costco store brand. Cute necklace.

  50. Tina says:

    Very cute necklace!! We always use Purex here (after the rain scent) I love it!!

  51. kristen hebert says:

    Gain with gain dryer sheets – you can’t beat the smell. LOVE the necklace :)

  52. Amanda says:

    These are adorable!
    We use ALL free….so we avoid perfumey smells.

  53. Kelly P says:

    I have one of your necklaces and have given one other one away to a friend. I’m in LOVE 😉 Anyway, I use Gain b/c its reasonably priced AND smells great.

    Keep being fabulous 😉

  54. Jan says:

    I use the Costco stuff for the new washers — smells wonderful!

    And I LOVE the necklace!

  55. Jessica says:

    These are such an adorable idea. I use All Small and Mighty!

  56. tammycirceo says:

    This necklace is so darling! I absolutely love it!!
    We use Mrs. Meyer’s line for our laundry, our dishes, and our housekeeping. I love that they are botanically-based, no animal ingredients, no testing on animals, blah, blah, blah … 😉 It smells wonderful and does a great job cleaning, too.

  57. Alex says:

    We use Gain (love the smell) and Clorox for colors on the whites, sheets and towels!
    What a fun necklace Lisa! I love it!

  58. Amy says:

    Tide for the over two crowd and dreft for the wee one….the necklace made me smile:)

  59. Alex says:

    We use Gain (love the smell) and Clorox for colors for the whites, sheets and towels! Love the necklace Lisa! So perfectly simple and sweet!

  60. Ros says:

    I use whatever is on sale and doesn’t have a strong smell since we have allergies and migraines in our house that are triggered by that!
    LOVE the necklace….how adorable!!

  61. Christina says:

    My first choice is Tide Free, but I will buy anything on sale that is free of dyes and fragrances. I have three boys under the age of three so I do LOTS of laundry!! I’ve been contemplating which necklace I like best for some time now, and just when I think I’ve decided, you come out with another adorable one!!

  62. Paige says:

    I use “free and clear” Arm and Hammer. But I must say, I love adding a scoop of Oxy Clean to my laundry. Billy Mays (may he rest in peace) was right about that stuff! :)

  63. Jane Z says:

    The new necklace reminds of my mom waking me in the summer to hang clothes on the line! We use Tide here.

  64. Hi Lisa, we use either Tide mountain Spring, Cheer or Mrs Meyer’s Baby Blossom. Whatever I am in the mood for or coupon for.

  65. Lisa Silver says:

    Amazing necklace! I just adore the little dress for Mommy’s part on the laundry line!

    I love scented soaps for laundry… anything with a sweet smell. But my all time favorite has to be Dreft. It reminds me of when my children were little. I buy some from time to time… just because.


  66. tide. but its just because i ran out of the costco stuff. =)

  67. Mandy Kirk says:

    Tide always and forever!

  68. Kori says:

    All concentrate. But really it’s all about the Downy. I never wear any perfume and everybody always thinks I smell so good. It’s the Downy.

  69. love it, love it, love it!!!

    used to use tide (my whole life), but i’m searching for something all natural. right now i’m using ecos free and clear. not sure if i like it.

    (pick me, pick me!!)

  70. jennifer milam says:

    I am a gain girl!! I love your new necklaces. Tooo cute!

  71. amy says:

    GAIN! it smells sooo good!

  72. Chantelle says:

    I grew up with my mom using Tide, so I assumed when I got married that I also needed to use it. Then I discovered the wonderfulness of GAIN and I FELL IN LOVE!!! I will never use anything else…. EVER!!

  73. So cute! All free and clear

  74. Kelly says:

    3rd generation Tide lover! But not liking the combination right now between the scent + my Bounce dryer sheets. After a day, the smell reminds me of a pet sawdust shavings smell — not good!

  75. Oh it’s LOVELY!! The images are fantastic!

    I use TIDE Free…the one that’s supposed to have less chemicals floating around in it. :)

  76. Amy says:

    What a cute idea! We’re a GAIN family. I just love the original scent!

  77. Elizabeth says:

    I love the new necklace — so cute! We use Costco’s huge bucket of detergent. With two toddlers it doesn’t last quite as long as you might think…..

  78. Jen says:

    Oh my gosh, this design is AWESOME! You did a great job!!!! I would love love love to win one :) We make our own detergent, usually with Washing Soda, Borax and Dr. Bronners soap. So cheap and smells so fresh!

  79. Elizabeth says:

    Liquid Tide. With dryer balls (chemical free way to fluff clothes and combat static cling)

    Love your work!

  80. Lisa Waidelich says:

    I love the beauty in simple things!!! I use Tide Clean Breeze–powdered for towels and liquid for the rest. Nothing like the smell of line-dried clothes!!!

  81. We are a no scent household, so we love Method’s natural laundry detergent :) These are so cute Lisa!

  82. sarah b in VA says:

    has a cuter necklace ever been created? how precious!!! :)

    we are a tide family. :) used to be dreft when the baby girl was tiny, but now we’re back to good ol’ tide.

  83. Stephanie says:

    I love the new necklace! We use Tide right now. The kind with Tim Gunn in the commercials.

  84. Emma says:

    Oh what a gorgeous necklace! You are such a talented woman! :)

    We use Tide Free for HE washers, but I also just got a box of those new Purex unscented all-in-ones… they’re not quite unscented. Yuck. Linens only for those.

  85. I had been using Cheer HE Free and Clear, but I have just started using soapnuts. I also add some OxiClean. I like them so far–I use some lemon essential oil with it, and my laundry smells so good! The necklace is absolutely precious!

  86. Jennifer says:

    What a cute necklace!!! We use ALL Free and Clear. My husband and daughter have very sensitive skin and this is pretty much the only thing that doesn’t irritate them.

  87. Mara says:

    Seventh Generation, only!

  88. Amy Gregg says:

    Whatever is on sale and smells the very best! I don’t mind to change it up! I love, love the new charms. I wear my initial necklace all the time, and the little clothes are perfect reminders to the sweetness of our little ones (most the time, right?!! :)!

  89. Andrea says:

    We love our soapnuts they are fantastic. This is one of your greatest ideas!

  90. amykate says:

    Gain…always my favorite smell on a man….

  91. kelly says:

    costco’s he brand. large jug, low price! LOVE the new “line”!!

  92. April says:

    I use Tide for most our laundry but do buy with a coupon and a sale other brands for hubbies work clothes.

    The new “Line” is adorable.

  93. lesligresholdt says:

    ALL of your work is FREE AND CLEAR above the rest. You have GAINed me as a fan since you make your beautiful work with your ARM and a HAMMER (possibly?) Please TIDE me over with this adorable item featuring onesies and tighty whities! (We use All Small & Mighty but I want to try those new thin sheet with detergent, softener and dryer sheets in one!)

  94. Asha Patel says:

    Gain and Lavender Downy! Such a yummy smell….Ahhhh!

  95. Trish says:

    oh those charms are cute! we use any scent-free brand that’s on sale w/ a coupon :-)

  96. penny says:

    Melaleuca all the way, Baby! :-)

  97. carrie says:

    We’ve been using the same laundry soap for about 18 years now. It’s called Restore the Earth and is locally (Minneapolis) made. They make several different environmentally friendly cleaning products and the best part is that the containers are refillable at our co-ops and our local Whole Foods. Fabulous necklaces!

  98. Susan C says:

    We are a Tide family! Love this necklace and all of your work!

  99. Roban says:

    This is too, too cute! I’m a mix…. My husband has always been a Tide man, but I thought Gain smelled fresher. Now, I think I’ve gotten so accustomed to Gain that Tide smells better. So I have both on my shelf!

  100. Erin says:

    That necklace is adorable!!! Thanks for doing this giveaway. For laundry detergent, we use All Free and Clear, or the Sam’s Club generic equivalent–can’t have those dyes and fragrances with a 16 month old with eczema!

  101. Sandy says:

    Both my hubby and son break out in hives if I use anything other than a free and clear Tide. I MISS the scent of laundry detergent. =(

    Love the new necklace! Very cute.

  102. Darla Hall says:

    We use tide extracare. The color, the smell, I can’t use anything else or the family complains that the laundry smells “funny”.
    Love the new necklace.

  103. Kimberli says:

    We use whatever I am in the mood to smell at the time. I like to change it up!

    This necklace is adorable!!

  104. april says:

    i use Tide HE laundry detergent and Almond snuggle…

  105. whitney says:

    We use Method liquid detergent.
    This necklace is adorable!!!!!

  106. Susanne N. says:

    i always use whatever smells good! lately i’ve been using tide or all. but i also like gain. i love smelling freshly washed clothes!

  107. Cathy says:

    Beautiful! I’m a Cheer gal.

  108. Brooke says:

    We use GAIN. Someone gave us some clothes that had been washed in Gain and my husband couldn’t get over how good the clothes smelled. So…it’s a must buy at our house now.
    Love the new necklace!

  109. Dawn says:

    hello Lisa,

    just wanted to say i am waiting on my order but wanted you to know that your ideas are great. You want to know the laundry soap I use, my favorite it ALL. It works and it is resonably priced, does the job.


  110. Sue says:

    I use the Tide for the energy efficient machines..I think they are labeled HE?
    I always love Tide.
    I also use sheets in the drier from Costco.

    Just a suggestion..a little kitty and a doggie tag to complete the family? Maybe a bird too?

  111. Marcie says:

    We use Arm and Hammer but usually whatever is on sale.

  112. Oh my! Your creative spirit is so inspiring and just too much! I LOVE this necklace~ so many family moments/memories are somehow laundry-related when you’re raising little ones…cute, cute, CUTE!!! I use the highly concentrated form of All, and I love to alternate the scents I use for a little change now and then…(as long as I use the same brand, no one seems to break out with little itchy patches or anything!) I also love to use Snuggle fabric softener dryer sheets…

  113. misty says:

    LOVE the necklace…so cute!!! i use Purex! it’s easy on the wallet and easy on the clothes! :)

  114. Katherine says:

    All Free and Clear (started after the first baby was born) and just kept going.
    What a clever idea!

  115. KC says:

    I love the new necklace – we have a high efficiency machine and use Persil – we find it very hard to find in North America (and if you can, it is very expensive). When we have friends visiting from Europe it is a requirement that they bring it with them – as much as they can. We will take that over any chocolate any day!

  116. Ali says:

    We use Dreft for our 7 month old and 2 1/2 year old and Tide for us. Love your jewelry and blog…this necklace is precious!

  117. Teresa says:

    Love your blog and your work….

    I use Purex…..

  118. Janice says:

    LOVE this new necklace!! So precious.

    We used the Trader Joe’s brand both powder and liquid. Yay for Trader Joe’s!!

  119. Bethany says:

    I just made my own for the first time (after procrastinating for several months) and now we’re headed out on a long boat trip and will just use what we have on the boat. Oh well!

  120. Debbie says:

    Tide. You go girl.

  121. denise says:

    adorable! you are creative lisa.
    kirkland brand liquid detergent! ywp, from good ol’ costco. we never use powdered detergent. did you know powdered detergent doesn’t dissolve completely and can irritate the skin. we have sensitive skin here in our casa, so it’s always liquid.
    these necklaces would be perfect for my sister. she has two new boys (foster adopt), and is always admiring my necklace.

  122. Jeanette says:

    I use Sunlight. I don’t know if it.s just a Canadian brand?

  123. Tina says:

    We use TIDE with a touch of Downey. I love the new necklace, what an adorable idea!!

  124. Kristen Thie says:

    I am a costco girl and use the kirkland brand. I am actually buying a new front load washer and dryer this weekend. Considering the fun red ones, maybe it will make doing laundry more fun!

  125. jules says:

    CHEER!!!!! Love love love the cheer comercials with the sgt. laundry lady!

  126. These are soooo cute. I’m so glad your jewelry designs are copyrighted. You wouldn’t believe how many people out there have similar things.

  127. ooops forgot to leave the name of my laundry soap…it’s Tide. I’ve used the same detergent ever since I can remember. :-)

  128. Kerry Estes says:

    We use Tide or whatever my father in law picks up at Costco for us.

    The necklace is great!

  129. Denissa says:

    I use the liquid Costco, smells just like Tide but costs a lot less! :) LOVE the necklace, so cute!

  130. Kerry says:

    It’s All Free and Clear at our house for my rashy kiddos… such sensitive little ones! That necklace is adorable!!! My husband recently got me the teeny tiny initials necklace and I practically never take it off. Your work is amazing!

  131. Alisa says:

    Totally into anything Gain right now. I love the fabric softner too!!

    the necklace is complete sweetness.

  132. April says:

    We use Tide – the Mountain Spring version. It smells wonderful!!

  133. Kim says:

    We use Ultra Gain….It smells awesome!

  134. Charlene Ruff says:

    Tide…without a doubt. Tried other brands but always come back to Tide!

  135. Junglewife says:

    I use something called “Attack” where I live. Great name, isn’t it?! :-)

  136. Melissa says:

    I am a totally Tide kind of girl :-) with the fun febreeze added in it every once in awhile to put a little spice in doing the laundry…hehehe! Love the necklace!

  137. Jennifer says:

    I am loving the laundry detergent and fabric softener distributed by Shaklee: “Fresh Laundry”. Soooo clean smelling! :)

  138. Lauren says:

    I use Mrs. Myers Lavender detergent. I love the fresh smell.

  139. Brittany says:

    trader joes detergent….. it’s “green”, smells good, works well, and makes one less stop to shop.
    what a cute necklace…. i’ve really got to get myself one of these. : )

  140. Ali says:

    LOVE the new necklaces!!! :) TIDE with bleach!!!

  141. Deanna says:

    We use ALL Free and Clear 3x concentrated in the super large container. We’re allergic to Tide and many other detergents, and the concentrated/large container minimizes plastic. Wish we could reduce our plastic even more.

  142. Marci says:

    Hi Lisa!

    Again, I LOVE your work and your photography. Following your advice here on the blog, I’ve been using Picnik and love it!

    I use ALL. It doesn’t smell fresh like the others, but it was recommended by my daughter’s dermatologist (she has eczema).

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  143. thursday says:

    Wow. Um… Dreft for the little guy’s stuff, and whatever is on sale (I think I’m in transition) for the big people! Currently we’re on a bottle of Cheer, but I used to use Tide exclusively.

  144. Candace says:

    We use Tide around here…but for my babies, it’s Dreft all the way!! Love this new creation….just beautiful!

  145. Tracy B. says:

    We use Tide and, come to think of it, I have never used anything else my entire life! Congrats on another beautiful neclace design!

  146. Karen says:

    So so so so super adorable! Love ’em! We use All Free and Clear. It is very interesting to read all these comments about laundry detergent! Thanks for doing giveaways!

  147. em tanner says:

    Tide for sure!! love all my stuff too! xo

  148. Susan Tethal says:

    Tide (high efficient) original scent! Love, love the way it makes our clothes smell. And love, love your jewelry!

  149. I have yet to find one that I would love to stick with… so I float! I smell every single one in the store every time and I pick the one that smells the best. =) So right now I am using Tide but I have used a lot of Small and Mighty before.

  150. Sue Stich says:

    Lovely necklace, reminds me of hanging clothes in New Hampshire with my grandma.
    We used to use more environmental laundry detergent, low suds, etc., but one day my husband, who is fighting cancer, said he really would like better smelling clothes. With the chemotherapy he has, his smell is really affected, so back to good old Tide from when I grew up.

  151. Seventh Generation is my fave. I also like Biokleen.

  152. what a cute new necklace. we use all free and clear in our house :)

  153. Jessica says:

    Very cute necklace! We use Purex.

  154. Costco eco friendly soap, darling panties both the boys and girls!! :)

  155. Deb says:

    i swear – every single new piece you launch i want as much as the last one! gorgeous!!

    we use detergant for sensitive skin here

  156. Cherith Hediger says:

    We just started using Seventh Generation laundry detergent and love it. It leave our clothes smelling so fresh and it’s considered more of a “green” detergent so it’s better for the environment. I love the your new necklace design…it’s adorable and sweet.

  157. vicki says:

    We use Nature Clean liquid detergent (in Canada) for our clothes and cloth diapers. Seems to do the trick for us!
    Cute concept….I wear my Lisa Leonard “tags” necklace everyday….I even have a small tan line where the three tags always sit on my chest…now that’s proof for you! 😉

  158. Alyson Wozniak says:

    I use Gain. CUTE necklace!

  159. beca says:

    only, always TIDE :) Love the new necklaces!

  160. alison says:

    While I gravitate towards more eco-friendly detergents, I really tend to buy what’s on sale and smells good when I’m tight on money!

  161. Darcie says:

    I use cheap-o Purex but hope to whip up a batch of homemade soap soon. Kind of makes me feel like a pioneer :)

    The new jewelry is amazing as usual! I got my millionth compliment on a necklace you made last year and recommended your website

  162. Ann says:

    I love all your jewelry but these are just the cutest things. We switch between cheer and Mrs Meyers for laundry . I can’t wait to purchase a few of your pieces. They are the type to where everyday and all day . Love them , keep up the good work .

  163. deezie says:

    Wow that sure is cute. You are so creative LIsa. Love it
    I use All free for front loaders
    but I love the smell of Tide.

  164. Jessica says:

    I started making my own several months ago with a mixture of grated soap, borax, baking soda, and essential oils. Works well, is better for our skin, and better for the environment. A cost savings, too!

  165. Lynette says:

    Gain Lavendar Lilac Moment…..yummo…it’s smells like heaven

  166. Linda says:

    ok first I didn’t think the comments had an end…holly cow you got lots of comments on this one. lol We are faithful Tide users.

  167. Southern Gal says:

    Gain. Love the smell. Reminds me of when my husband and I were dating. His mom used Gain and I loved the way his clothes smelled!

  168. Wendy says:

    I’m a Tide girl myself! What a sweet necklace this is..I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  169. Anouk says:

    We use Gain. The smell just makes me happy every time I use it!

    The only laundry brand I consistently use is Oxy Clean. I usually just buy cheap detergent.

    The necklace is adorable!

    What a sweet necklace – love it!! I currently use Era, but I want to try the new Tide Total Care as soon as the current bottle runs out. :)

  172. Julie says:

    We use Tide. It seems to work the best on my ‘ mud magnet’ daughter’s dresses. I love the necklace! It would be very fitting for me, since we have mountains of laundry every day. thanks for the chance!

  173. carrie says:

    That is just soooo cute! We just started using the new sheets from Purex – they work great.

  174. Nichole says:

    I can’t use anything but Tide!

  176. Sarah W says:

    We use All Free and Clear–it works for us :)
    Such a cute necklace!

  178. Rebecca says:

    I use the cheapest detergent I can find (so it varies) but one thing that DOESN’T vary is….SHOUTing it out. 😉

    Lisa i love all your work and check your blog each day…. enjoying your pics very much :)

  180. Regina says:

    Tide. I love the necklace and design! Takes me back to my childhood!

  181. Jenny Lynn says:

    I never really had a preference but when I got married last June, my husband informed me that we HAD to use Gain EVERYTHING. Gain detergent and liquid fabric softener and dryer sheets.

    You know why?

    Because that’s what his mama uses!

    So what do we use???


  182. Cheryl Sims says:

    Great designs!!! I love the Tide with the lavender scent. I adore crawling into bed with sheets that are scented with this. When I don’t use that on my sheets and undies, I like Gain with the fresh scent. I also add a little oxyclean to each load. Thanks for the chance to win!!
    Cheryl Sims

  183. Alison says:

    Love the new design, wearing my ‘wish’ necklace today as it happens! We use persil non-bio (here in the UK) and I use tea tree oil in my rinse – smells lovely!

  184. Tonya says:

    Oh my heavens…those are the cutest little things ever!!!

    What kind of detergent do I use? Usually whatever I have a coupon for! 😉 I’m using All Small & Mighty right now…don’t ya just love that name! 😉

  185. I use Tide High Efficiency for my front loader. Also in the summer, I HAVE to have my bottle of Dawn handy to remove all of those nasty softball and baseball stains! :)

  186. debbie says:

    we use All detergent – the basic blue bottle for us grown-ups, and the white, “free” for the kiddos. I use All, because my Mom used All – – isn’t that just the way? it must be “right” if momma did it that way.

    I love your blog – as well as your line of jewelry. and your photographs – inspiring!

  187. Tricia says:

    I use original Gain. I would love to have this necklace as I am getting married in a couple of months and it would be awesome to have something to add to this once children begin to come along. Love your site and your work…beautiful!

  188. Anna G says:

    I have to use anything that is free and clear because everything else upsets my skin.

  189. Julie Kanzelmeyer says:

    We use ALL free and clear in an attempt to control my son’s eczema. Adorable necklace!

  190. Erin says:

    Love the necklace! No loyalties here, just whatever is the cheapest.

  191. Laura says:

    Oh Lisa….that is just the cutest idea!!!
    We use Arm & Hammer detergent, and Downy fabric softener. I have sensitive skin and through trial and skin rashes….found that these work just fine for us. =)

  192. rikki says:

    currently we are using dreft, as that’s what’s in the cabinet. we typically just buy what’s on sale!

    that necklace is precious!

  193. Mel says:

    Tide HE– due to allergies and type of washing machine. Have tried others but TIde is it!!!!

  194. Sandy says:

    We go for organic when we can get it! Citrisuds is one of our favorites.

    Love the necklace idea!

  195. joann says:

    Love your designs. I use Tide, have tried others but my kids complain and I go back to Tide and all is well. My Mom loved the “gramma” necklace we gave her for Mother’s Day.

  197. Lisa Todd says:

    We use Tide at our house.

  201. Kate says:

    Honestly my husband does the laundry so I let him pick but he usually goes for Tide…

  202. Cindy says:

  205. Paige says:

    We use the kirkland brand free and clear. Love that there are no smells or dyes for my babies. =) Love this necklace too!

  206. Whitney says:

    OH! I would love to win a necklace! I really like this design and I do think it is simple and kinda feels clean actually….and I do love clean! You are great! We use Kirkland Signature liquid kind….the free and clear! It is a good price and it works well too!

  207. Jennifer says:

    We usually use whatever it cheapest and for the most part that is the HEB Bravo brand. I just got on of the big new washers and so now I’m using the “HE” kind which I thought was going to be more expensive, but its really not!

    I found your jewlery in a magazine before Christmas last year and told my husband I wanted a necklace for Christmas – the initals one with the little circles and the pearl. I wear several times a week and almost always get compliments! And then I found your blog a few weeks ago from Angie Smith blog! So glad I did!

  208. Serena says:

    Right now I am finishing up a bottle of All but I really prefer Tide Downy scent. Very picky about the scent. The new necklace is too cute!

  209. Kristi says:

    That necklace is super sweet! I love your stuff Lisa. I use whatever brand is on sale that is good for sensitive skin because my little guy has tons of allergy issues.

  210. Amanda says:

    Purex. I just saw that new no liquid sheet thingy and I’m so excited.

  216. Melissa says:

    I am new to your line of jewlery, but love it! How do you find the time?
    We use ALL Free and Clear due to me children’s allergies. I would love something with more of a clean scent, but it’s all for the kiddos, right?

  217. joan says:

    i do four loads of laundry twice a week so I use whichever one is on sale! I love this new necklace-so cute! =)

  219. Kristin says:

    We use Dreft for the baby and Gain for the rest of us. I just found your website recently and I love logging in everyday to check your blog…it’s very inspiring! Thanks for sharing! Love the jewelry!

  220. Tessa says:

    First of all, I must say that your new laundry necklace is adorable! I absoluetly love it! It kind of reminds me of my childhood… I would help my mom hang clothes on the line to dry in the summertime. Wonderful memories! As for detergent, we have been using Purex Free & Clear because of my daughter, who just turned 2 months old!

  221. Tracy says:

    I use Tide. Nothing cleans my husband’s stinkly laundry better!

  222. Tanya S. says:

    This necklace is so precious!

  225. denise sullivan says:

    We use Kirkland’s (CostCo) Free and Ultra Clear.
    Your website is an daily inspiration, thank you for being so dedicated to it.
    I have four children and am hoping for a Lisa Leonard necklace for my birthday. Lots of hints are being dropped here at home!

  226. Melissa says:

    Purex Free and Clear for my sensitive babies(ie hubby!) :)
    This is so stinkin cute, it’s funny I was just thinking the other day…. I am surprised Lisa hasn’t done a new necklace. But thought well she might be wanting to enjoy the summer w/her boys. And here we are!!
    Very cute and unique idea………. LOVE IT. Hope to get one.

  227. Elizabeth says:

    The new necklace is adorable! You have such a gift with design. We use Purex Natural Elements and love it! :)

  230. Tami says:

    I use Seventh Generation Lavendar. LOVE this necklace… I would absolutely LOVE to put it around my neck with pride!

  231. I am a tide user all the way!!! I use the TIDE HE Rain Scent and it’s liquid. I am also very particular about my stain removers. Amway SA8 solution works wonders on anything greasy (butter, fried things) ect and Spray and wash is great on grass stains. Blood comes out wonderfully when you put Hydrogen peroxide on it. I love clean clothes and I hate stains.

    Love your laundry line necklace.

  232. cheryl says:

    oh! those necklaces are SO cute! i am a tide girl all the way!

  233. Michele says:

  237. Liz D says:

  238. val says:

  240. Amanda says:

    I love your necklaces and you new design is wonderful! We use Arm & Hammer Essentials.

  241. Beth says:

    I use Wisk is it great as a stain treatment also….love this necklace…i run a daycare and can see the kids names on it.

  242. Beth says:

    I use Tide or Wisk…but for stains, (which is most anything in the laundry is seems), I use Zout and for grease, Watkins degreaser.

    My husband used to fuss that I wasted so much time on the laundry, examining, spraying, squirting, etc., He was sure that if I just shoved it all in the washer, it would come out good as new. HA…I broke my ankle and was unable to walk for almost 3 months. He was just shocked to see how his laundry came out. I ended up with a very grateful husband…the hard way, of course!

    The necklace is lovely….

  243. Jenny says:

    How adorable!! I use Charlie’s Soap.

  244. Danielle says:

    these necklaces are fantastic!

    I use Tide and All

  245. Ellen says:

    Love the new design, so cute!

    We use either All free & clear, or tide free since baby girl has super sensitive skin. I would love to try some of the more organic and natural detergents, but with a baby covered in stains and risk of rash, I don’t have the guts!

  246. Oh! I LOVE that necklace!!! I use Tide HE. :)



  247. Autumn says:

    Tide for HE frontloader.

  248. Debbie Bobowski says:

    I love the necklace! My kids bought me one of your necklaces for mother’s day and I wear it all the time always getting comments. I use Charlie’s Soap. It is wonderful and great for us as well as the environment.

  257. Laura says:

    We recently switched from the cheapo costco brand to Gain and I’m loving the new scent of my laundry!
    Cute idea! Love the onesie!

  258. i use the kirkland brand liquid detergent (costco find, red container) i have to use the same kind because hubs has sensetive skin and brakes out in a rash if i change. the really strange part is that kirkland has a free and clear with no dyes or perfumes and he reacts to it and not the basic kind. the kind we used to use changed their formula and hubs skin freaked out. weird. i know. but he’s mine! :)

  259. Bonnie says:

    I use Arm and Hammer for sensitive skin detergent as I have always had freaky sensitive skin. This necklace would be awesome as I am a step mom of two kids. The hanging clothes remind me of visiting my Grandma’s house and seeing her clothes on the clothes line. :) Thank you for reminding me of those happy childhood days!!!!

  260. Alina says:

    We use 7th Generation here and I love it…..the necklace is gorgeous….I really hope I win :)

  270. Lourdes says:

    kirkland’s environmentally friendly laundry…trying to combine green, fit the budget and get things clean, plus my sensitive skin people do okay with it. I add Oxo brite for tough stains when needed.
    oh….your jewelry, ALL your work as a matter of fact, so beautiful and inspiring.

  271. I actually use laundry soap that my mom makes!! It’s a very basic recipe, that I wrote all about in this blog post ( It’s fun to use something made my mom, and something that is so economical! Love the new necklaces!!

  272. MacKenzie says:

    We use Purex Free and Clear….it does the best job cleaning our laundry and keeping our sensitive/prone to allergies skin happy….and it’s easy on our wallets.

    The necklace is so fun and charming….what a neat way to share with others a family heritage!

  273. I use GAIN. I have four children and while I was pregnant with my 4th child I fell in love with the smell of Gain detergent. While you were pregnant did you ever find smells or tastes that you couldnt get enough of? That is how I felt with Gain, if I could have eaten it, I would have! I absolutely loved the smell of Gain and the clean clothes!! I also love this cute necklace!!! love it!

  274. Wendy C says:

    We use tide original and Dreft for the baby.
    LOVE the necklaces!

  275. Rebecca says:

    For white laundry I still use a detergent from Europe (Persil) – it’s amazing!

  280. Beth Allen says:

    I love this, Lisa! So cute! We use any free and clear version, usually tide. (cause it is the biggest at Target). I just love this necklace!

  281. Destiny D says:

    We use Tide Free for our front load washer — usually with a squirt of Shout on several items. Hehe!

  282. I use unscented tide and the lavender & vanilla scented downy. I used to reserve the scented fabric softener just for sheets and towels, but I’ve started spoiling the rest of the laundry with it as well. Smells so good.

  283. Clare Hamilton says:

    Ecoballs – save money & help the enviroment (their words not mine) also bold on the more grubby washes!!

  284. I use the unscented Tide to wash my boys’ clothes and Fresh scent Gain for my stuff. It smells amazing.

  285. Andrea Trenda says:

    I like ALL Free & Clear. I am not very picky but I do like the ones that are free of dyes and fragrance!

  302. Jennie says:

    Such a great necklace. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!
    So this sounds lame but, We use Surf because we are a beach bum family, my husband surfs and I just love the pretty box. It smells great too. I will also soak the kids stained clothes in Oxyclean if they need it.

    I have fallen in love with the all natural Mrs. Meyers Clean Day laundry detergent in the WoNdErFuL and GlOrIoUs lemon verbena scent! When I do laundry it leaves a light, clean scent in the whole laundry room! It makes doing laundry fun and the scent makes me happy! :-)
    They also have liquid softner and dryer sheets, as well as other home cleaning prodcuts.
    The necklace is AdOrAbLe!!!!! Would absolutely love to wear it, and my friends would be envious!

    That new necklace is so sweet…almost makes me want to do laundry. Makes me think of childhood and my mother hanging out laundry to dry. I loved the smell of it. I use Tide. We get a lot of stains in this house. Stains= fun summer days. Right?

  311. Linda Z says:

  314. Amie says:

    When I was single, I used whatever was on sale but my husband is loyal to Tide! We use Tide free for HE washers. I LOVE the new design! It takes me back to the the days when I was a little girl trying to help my “nannie” (grandmother) hang the clothes on the laundry line…….it’s nice to remember simplier times….
    My husband and daughter gave me the Mama necklace and ring with all 3 of our names on it for Mother’s day. They are so beautiful! Thank you for creating such beautiful pieces and for sharing your thoughts and pictures with us. I have found myself addicted to your website and blog. Thank you for reminding us to enjoy the small, simple moments in life……

  315. Amy Miller says:

    My washer and dryer came with three years of free detergent so for the last three years we have been using Tide HE. But secretly, my favorite thing to wash clothes with is johnson n johnson baby wash. My clothes are just as clean and I feel like I am carrying that newborn scent with me all day!

  316. Lindy says:

    I use Tide HE. Super cute necklace.

  326. Michelle Ball says:

    Your jewelry is beautiful! I already have one necklace and keep hinting for my husband to get me another one. :)

    I’m a tide girl. My mom always used it and I continued to do so when I got married.

  327. Susan says:


  328. laura says:

    we use meijer naturals or all free and clear. i love your blog and jewelry! thank you for sharing and much love to you….laura

  329. Jan Reid says:

    Who doesn’t love a free giveaway and one that is so cute as well. With one of my children having a severe disability we generally use Gain or Purex, but, either one has to free of everything. God Bless

  330. Alana says:

    so cute! we use tide-he. hee hee hee.

  331. Tina says:

    Before we got our new front loader, I used to make my own laundry detergent using Washing Soda, Borax and some grated Fels Naptha soap. Now I have to use HE, so we use Tide. In place of dryer sheets, I put a few drops of essential oil (lavendar is my favorite) on a washcloth and throw it in with the wet clothes. Saves lots of money and better for the environment!
    Love the necklaces! So cute!

  332. Lisa says:

    Thanks, I get so many compliments on my “love with your whole heart” necklace.
    I hang laundry on the clothesline as therapy. Maybe I need a second necklace.
    I make my own laundry soap and hope to not never go back to store soap.

  333. Erin Kaylor says:

  336. Carlyn says:

    Stinkin’ winkin’ adorable…. We useTide along with liquid Downy pure essentials aloe and white lilac fabric softener which smells like absolute heaven………

  337. Stephanie says:

    Holy smokes, those are the cutest ever. Whimsical, definitely! I usually use Tide but it does depend on what’s on sale.

  338. Dawn says:

    I absolutely love your work! We use Gain because I love the way it makes our clothes smell!

  339. Laura says:

    Whatever is on sale!

  340. Jean says:

    Gain Baby all the way!!!

  345. Kim Howell says:

    Love the new design… it is on my wish list.. sent your link to my hubby..HINT HINT in the subject!
    Any way.. I always used Tide… but really for the price, Arm and Hammer works awesome and for tough stains… Zout!!! Must have Downey.. was this supposed to be just detergent???
    Thanks for the possiblity to win!! I read your blog all the time!

  346. Melinda says:

    Tide is our detergent for many many years now.
    and oh my heck that necklace is too stinkin’ cute. Loves it!

  347. Missy says:

    We are a Tide family! And what beautiful necklaces – so cute! I love the laundry idea!

  348. Kim R. says:

    I use Purex because someone told me a long time ago that it was a good value and I’m all about that! But I may look into Costco. I love that necklace. All of your jewlery is such high quality. That is what I love about it!

  349. Ginny says:

    Dreft- it was supposed to be for the baby’s clothes- but it smells so good we use it for everyone!

  350. becky coulthard says:

    Super cute necklace!
    we use sunlight laundry detergent….love it!

  351. {{* *}} Laura says:

    Seventh Generation (unscented, & I add lavender essential oil) when I find it on sale,
    and homemade laundry soap when I run out.
    I like them both equally, but there is a special laundry thrill that comes with using homemade…
    and don’t we need some laundry thrill in our lives?

  352. tricia says:

    I have always uses whatever free and clear brand that was on sale, but we have switched to more environmentally friendly brands like 7th generation and ecos and have been very happy with them:) The new necklace is so sweet:)

  353. Stacy says:

    Wow, I love the new necklaces. I usually buy Tide with Downey April Fresh in it. Sometimes, though, I’ll buy Gain. I do love the Gain original fabric softener. It makes your clothes smell awesome!

    Also, I wanted to say I love the canvas printed photos over your dresser. Not only are they great photos, but they go so well together–such great picture ideas you have.

  354. megan says:

    I love Purex. Normally when it is on sale at my grocery store and I have coupons I can get it almost for free.(I am the queen of coupons in my house) I love the scents and it seems to work very well. I love the new necklace and would love it around my neck even more.
    Megan from Louisiana

  355. Melanie says:

    I tried soap nut shells and love them. I even found out that you can wash your hair with them ( I really couldn’t believe that), but I tried it and it was better (on my my fine hair) than everything I used before.
    Thanks for this lovely lovely giveaway!

  356. April says:

    I’m a “what’s on sale” kind of gal, but usually go with Purex. Recently found a sale on Tide at Family Dollar, so I might be switching… still waiting on the final word.

    Love the necklace!

  357. I use homemade laundry detergent! I use borax. washing soda, dr. bronners bar soap, and lavender essential oil. It’s cheap, smells good, and does a fabulous job!
    Brandy from Tennessee

  358. Jen L. says:

    I use Tide Free – it is gentle, cleans my clothes well, and doesn’t have annoying smells.
    Jen from Virginia

  359. Dena says:

    whatever’s cheap, but a good name brand. i love tide. use 1 c of tide (classic original scent), heaping scoop of oxi clean powder and one cap of downey (april fresh). yummy.

    love, LOVE this necklace. too cute, what a sweet idea. :o)

  360. Linda Mills says:

    Hi Lisa,

    I use the Kirkland Signature brand in the powder form from Costco……usually. If not, it is Tide all the way baby. Have a great 4th of July celebration.

  361. Christi A. says:

    Tide is the brand for us! Love your jewelry!!!

  362. Tiffany says:

    I love the necklace. Your jewelry is beautiful as is your photography. I read your blog weekly for a little sunny inspiration. My fave detergent is homemade. I am a science teacher and taught my kids how to make homemade household cleaners and found this recipe that I now use at home.

    1 quart Water (boiling)
    2 cups Bar soap (grated)
    2 cups Borax
    2 cups Washing Soda

    Add finely grated bar soap to the boiling water and stir until soap is melted. You can keep on low heat until soap is melted. Pour the soap water into a large, clean pail and add the Borax and Washing Soda. Stir well until all is dissolved. Add 2 gallons of water, stir until well mixed. Cover pail and use 1/4 cup for each load of laundry. Stir the soap each time you use it (will gel).

  363. Eliza says:

    I currently have three laundry soaps on the go . . . Tide Free, Zero and Baby Soft. I ADORE the new necklace, it totally rocks!!

  364. Faith Sheehan says:

    Hi Lisa,
    Love the new necklace. With 2 boys, I am always in the laundry room washing hockey and soccer uniforms. I use Tide Coldwater most of the time. Cheer Dark for black and navy. I would love to be entered in the contest. I’ve gotten many compliments on my other necklace.

  365. Julie says:

    I love the new design!! I use All it works great!

  366. Kendra Stiles says:

    Love the new necklace – heck, love all your stuff!!! So creative and whimsical!

    Laundry detergent – Sunlight HE

  367. Courtney says:

    These necklaces are too cute!

  368. kristin says:

    The new necklace is adorable! For laundry I love the smell of Gain, but if its not on sale I pick up Purex Natural Elements…

  369. Richelle says:

    I make my own. It’s friendly to the earth and cheaper too!

  370. miranda says:

    Good ole regular Tide here. The hubs is insistent on it!

  371. Sana Abbott says:

    Love the adorable “Laundry Line” design!

  373. Karie says:

    Love the necklace! Been wanting to get one for a long time now. I use Gain and love the smell.

  374. Michelle B says:

    TIDE! So cute necklace! Love it!

  375. Anna Ely says:

    What a darling little necklace. I love the tiny little charms for each member of the family!
    We use ALL Free and Clear as we have a family full of allergies. This is one of those weeks I can’t seem to catch up on the laundry. Son just got back from a week of Boy Scout Summer Camp…my 2 daughters and I took a weekend trip while he was gone…add to that the usual work clothes for hubby and all the linens, it seems the mounds keep getting higher instead of lower. PLUS it’s been raining for a week so I can’t hang anything outside! I know what I’ll be doing this long weekend! LOL

  376. jane says:

    Amazingly cute necklace-LOVE IT! I make my own laundry soap using ivory soap,borax and washing soda. Super simple, super cost effective and it works great ! I found the recipe on you tube and totally surprised myself because I really never thought that would be something I would be making for our family. It’s actually quite neat !

  377. Julie says:

    This brings back memories of childhood…we used a ringer washer and we didn’t have a dryer growing up, so we hung everything out on the line. Reminds me of the squeek the line made as you reeled in the crisp fresh laundry…costco brand laundry detergent

  378. Krista says:

    adorable necklace! we use norwex laundry detergent. also, did you know vinegar makes a great fabric softener?

  379. Sue says:

    Lisa, another darling necklace…it would be perfect for my daughter. We both use Tide.

  380. Katerina says:

    Purex free and clear or arm & hammer perfume& dye free. love the new necklace!

  381. Adrienne Beck says:

    Purex free and clear! Love the necklace! :) Pick me!

  382. sarah says:

    Hi Lisa. I just love all your designs. Whimsical things are my absolute favorite. In my house we us Tide. It reminds me of my Grandma’s house.

  383. Jenny V says:

    Super Cute necklace!! I usually use Tide with Febreeze.

  384. MrsBagley says:

    I’m a Tide girl, born of a Tide mother and hopefully I will raise a Tide son. He’s six months old tomorrow- think it’s time to teach him to do laundry?

  385. christa says:

    SO cute! I use liquid Tide and Oxy Clean. Then bounce dryer sheets when I don’t have the luxury of hang drying!

  386. Jackie Smith says:

    I love Tide Mountain Spring…….but it’s just too dang expensive. So I’ve been getting SUN burst……from Target and it’s like $2 something a bottle. Smells good too :-)

  387. Cathy says:

    I use Tide or Gain, whatever I can get a deal on! Lovely necklace!!!!

  388. Heather says:

    Cheer all the way baby! Love the smell :) and the best part about laundry at my house… husband does it all! I haven’t done a true “load” for 10 years.

  389. Daniela says:

    I try to use very soft detergents… with a jasmine perfume… and it’s so nice when I put them wetting to pass by and they smell so good… :-)

    PS: sorry for my bad english….it’s not my language! But I really love your necklaces! All of them!


  390. Libby says:

    We started using Purex detergent and I love the smell of it. It makes my clothes smell good even when they’ve been sitting in the drawer for awhile. But my MUSTHAVE for laundry with two small boys in my house is OxyClean (God bless Billy Mays!!!!) I have bottles strategically placed throughout the house and sitting next to the washing machine for the stains that have slipped by me while getting the loads ready. It’s a lifesaver!!!

    Your necklace is wonderful! I love it! XOXOXO

  391. Kathy Cox says:

    Lisa…you are a GENIUS!!! I am always so inspired by your jewelry and your photography! My new favorite is Gain…it cleans well and the smell, oh the smell! Here’s a little laundry tip—if you have something with yucky odors (and with two boys, I’m sure you NEVER experience that!) throw some vinegar in with your detergent! It works wonders! Hoping I win!

  392. Lisa Stewart says:

    We are Gain all the way in this house! If I won your necklace, I’d give it to my best friend, Lourdes, who turned me on to your site and your beautiful talents–and is also entered to win!! I bought the Mama necklace yesterday and can’t wait to wear it!!

  393. kristin says:

    mostly tide & shaklee detergent for us. love the necklaces. laundry is definately part of our everyday life!

  394. MamáChanga says:

    For the longest time we’ve used Dreft here (because DrillSgt. has some SERIOUS allergies), but we finally tried the Kirkland EcoFriendly brand and it worked!! Hooray!!

    Hugs & Blessings!

  395. Brianne says:

    Hello :)
    I am a student, and spend my money on art supplies and paint….. so I typically use whichever laundry detergent is cheapest that month.
    My favourite though, is Gain Apple Mango Tango – smells amazing!!

    LOVE the new bracelet. I don’t have kids though. I have dropped major hints about my favourite bracelet for my birthday coming up, so hopefully I will have one of my own soon!

  396. Molly says:

    I still use Dreft for my 2 and a half year old. Dreft for the baby, too. I just love the way it smells! For our clothes I use a store brand that is free from perfumes and dyes.

  397. Christine says:

    We use Norwex. It is a chemical free, fragrance free etc… detergent that works well on my kid’s sensitive skin. Took a little while to get used to not smelling a scent. But it’s been great on their skin!

  398. Sylvia says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, Lisa. What a cute concept!

    My mother always used Tide in our laundry and today, I am a Tide user. I never sway! :o)

  399. Sylvia says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, Lisa. What a cute concept!

    My mother always used Tide in our laundry and today, I am a Tide user. I never sway! :o)

  400. Lindsey says:

    we use All free and clear!!!! love your work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  401. Jessica says:

    I use the most awesome laundry detergent that is made by a wonderful soapmaker on Etsy (Heart J Creations). My husband and toddler son both have very sensitive skin and eczema. This is the first detergent I have found that does not irritate their skin but still works, and smells, great! You can also choose from a huge variety of fragrances. I love that, in addition to helping my guys, I am supporting a handmade product.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your fabulous necklaces!

  402. tammy says:

    what a precious idea! thanks for the giveaway.
    we use gain apple-mango tango! yum!

  403. Wendy says:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new necklace! Love the onzie and the boxers especially! We use All Baby. We use it mostly for our children but my husband loves the smell. Thanks for the give-away!

  404. Christen says:

    That new necklace is ADORABLE!! I am always amazed by the way you simply yet creatively capture life in your jewelry and photography. We use Kirkland brand (costco)

  405. Carla says:

    Tide he… front loader.
    Your necklaces are very cute are they PMC?

  406. JulieB says:

    All Free & Clear HE for us. Thanks for a great giveaway – this is adorable!

  407. Megan Boragine says:

    Hey Lisa, Summer, et al! My soap is not so exciting but my clothes are pretty clean! I use all free-n-clear (free of perfume and dye). The new necklace is darling! You are so creative to see it and then to make it happen. Amazing! Have fun :) Love you guys :)

  408. Emily says:

    What a great new necklace! I use All Free & Clear for high efficiency machines.

  409. nicole gibeault says:

    How will you ever choose just one person from all of these entries? I absolutely loved the creativity of the person who did the little poem using all the different brands of detergent. Smart! We use tide with bleach! I spend way too much time doing laundry and I only have 3 children! The necklace is really cute too.

  410. Shi~ says:

    oh my…there are alot of comments here! I love this neckles what a charming idea! You are an amazing artist! I use tide…is there really any other! hahahah Blessing shi~

  411. ChristineK says:

    Absolutely adorable!

    I use Tide – no overpowering scent and it gets our clothes clean the first time. :)

  412. Shelly Primm says:

    too cute lisa! We use Tide here at the Primm household. I was just telling a friend the other day that I remember my great grandmother using Tide as well as my grandmother and my mom. I think the only reason I use Tide now is because of the smell that I remember as a kid. I am not “brand sensitive” to anything else but I can’t stand the thought of using something different for my clothes! :-)
    Have a great weekend!

  413. Andrea P says:

    Lisa….I love this new design. I LOVE IT!

    I use anything that is cheap…and only powder because the water is so hard in Boise my laundry stinks if I use liquid soap.

  414. Amy H says:

    Tide!! What a cute design!

  415. Jessa says:

    Gain. Smells yummy.

  416. Kristin says:

    oh my….that is adorable! I use Kirkland Signature. :)

  417. annie says:

    I love this necklace design- very sweet and clever! We use Seventh Generation for pretty much all but the nastiest of preschool-related stains, and then I use a combo. of the environmentally friendly stuff and some heavy duty stain remover…

  418. Ashley says:

    We use All Free and Clear or Tide …the lilac scented Baking Soda version…..

  419. Jennifer says:

    We use Costco brand detergent. I love and use Caldrea-Sweet Pea for babies. Love the necklace!

  420. All Free and Clear… we try to be as natural as possible around here (without going so far as to wash our clothes by hand in the river!) Love your necklaces! Can’t wait for an excuse to get myself one! Can “because it’s Friday” be a reason??!!

  421. Mimi says:

    We use Earth Friendly Products.

  422. Patricia says:

    Tide free or anything that’s on sale in the no perfume category – kids have a mild case of exzema – thought they would have outgrown it by now, but everytime I try to switch ~ they have mild breakouts. You never cease to amaze me with your inspiration – love the new necklace!

  423. Sherry says:

    what a cute necklace! I use either Arm and Hammer liquid detergent or the store brand which I usually buy when A&H isn’t on sale. And I always buy unscented of whatever I get!

  424. Annette says:

    LOVE this new necklace. What a fabulous concept.
    We either make our own with castille soap, borax and washing soda. Or I buy ECOS lavender from Sam’s.

  425. mary anne says:

    Dear Lisa,
    The laundry line necklace is really cute. We have no allergy issues here so I buy whatever smells nice and is on sale. Sometimes it’s Tide, sometimes Arm & Hammer, often Purex, as long as it’s on sale. However, one smell that is so comforting and inviting, which I haven’t used in years, is Dreft. I love the smell of it, it’s evocative of new motherhood and brings me back to when my boys were infants.

  426. Ju says:

    This necklace is adorable!! All your jewelry is amazing. We got one for my mom for mother’s day and I can’t wait to have one of my own… one of these days… one of these days.
    We use Tide.

  427. Angie Minshall says:

    What an adorable necklace!
    I use Tide Total Care.

  428. KellyM says:

    Wow! Those are sooo cute! We use anything that is free and clear and ON SALE! I did try soap nuts recently and they really did work so, I might pick them up when we run out of our regular. Thanks and keep those lovely photos coming!

  429. We use whatever is on sale but I used to make my own laundry soap. I think in honor of summer I’m going to get back to doing that. It seems like it worked better than store brands and doesn’t contain the perfumes, dyes and fillers that commercial laundry soap does. We’ll see.

  430. Denise Witcombe says:

    Tide Free and Clear for HE washers. Boring, I know.

  431. Tammy says:

    Used to be whatever is on sale but now I know there is no better cleaner than Tide. Sweet necklace…

  432. Elizabeth says:

    The new knecklace is beautiful. We use Tide !

  433. Rebecca says:

    We are normally ALL users, but occassionally I mix it up (for smelling purposes) and use CHEER.

  434. Candy Foster says:

    We use Arm and Hammer or if I can’t find it ALL. Cute necklace.

  435. Melody says:

    Usually Tide. Love the new necklace. Didn’t realize it until today, but we drove through San Luis Obispo on our way to Hearst Castle when we were recently visiting Santa Barbara.

  436. Kristin says:

    Love the new design! 😉 I just started using the Purex 3 in 1…easy and I need as easy as I can get!

  437. Joy says:

    beautiful! i LOVE the necklace my husband ordered for me from you =) i am happy to say that as of this week i use he tide since i’m the proud new owner of front loaders!

  438. Kristin says:

    How cute!!! We use Seventh Generation. :) Love that it’s made for cold water! :)

  439. Ashley says:

    This is such an adorable necklace! I use the Costco free and clear detergent…and vinegar. I’m obsessed with vinegar 😉

  440. Gina says:

    Iam a tide girl !!! I would LOVE a chance to win this necklace to add to my growing collection of your jewlery that I have !!!

    Happy 4th

  441. Denise says:

    My favorite laundry detergent is anything lavender scented! Real lavender scented. Not with that fake vanilla-y lavender smell. Must be real! Costco makes a great lavender scented HE liquid that I love. I add baking soda to the wash for extra cleaning, and dream of having a laundry line outside to hang my clothes on. Sigh. One day. For now I will dry my sheets in a dryer and dream of a time I can dry them outside in the sun, and go to bed, my kids and I, on sweet, sun dried sheets. (o:

  442. Jennifer Vicente says:

    Adorable necklace!!! I always use Tide. Nothing fights a stain like it!!

  443. Lari says:

    I use All free and clear HE for my front loader. All 4 of my boys have sensitive skin.

  444. Sarah says:

    Tide, mostly. Reminds me of my mom–and so does the sweet laundry line necklace!

  445. Katie says:

    Hi Lisa! We use Tide around here, and I hang dry most of our clothes so I especially love the clothesline necklaces!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  446. Kristen says:

    Tide Free all the way!

  447. alyssa low says:

    currently, since we live in a dorm with college students, we usually have a surplus of TONS of unwanted detergent left behind from the students. so…at the moment, all. i LOVE the summer and winter-they don’t want to pack it in their car, so we get all the extra detergent. thank you hart hall!!

  448. Jennifer says:

    I use Seventh Generation Water Blossom scent. It smells great!

  449. Lori says:

    My family has sensitive skin so I must use Tide Free.

  450. Lisa says:

  451. Bev says:

    Love the necklace. Seventh Generation all the time

  452. Lisa H. says:

    Hi Lisa,

    What a fresh and summer inspired necklace. Definitely represents my life. We use Tide HE powdered formula for all our clothes and hang them out to dry on our clothesline in the summer months!

    Many thanks,
    Lisa Hamelin

  453. Mrs. H says:

    wowzers, lotsa laundry options!

  455. Ann says:

    Those are so sweet! We’re an All Free and Clear family here! :) Can’t stand detergent with a scent!

  456. Pam says:

    Adorable!! We use Tide HE but I prefer Tide Free when we had our old washer. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  457. Lesley says:

    How do you come up with such cute things? I love your pieces. I use Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day detergent in Baby Blossom for our 1 year old (it smells SO delightful!) and Gain or All for the rest of us. I hope I have some new “laundry” to wear! :)

  458. Daniela says:

    i use ariel which my family brings over from germany every time they visit

  459. Michal says:

    i use tide granular….it is the best for getting the mildew stink out of towels in a front loader! love the necklace!

  460. Christine says:

    I use Tide liquid. I love it! I live in Cincinnati, so Procter & Gamble all the way!
