But, being chemically sensitive, I didn't want to use a commercial product with fragrance and other irritants.
So, I researched to see if there was a good natural alternative to these 'afresh' pods.
Nothing was readily apparent, so I dug a little deeper and found a natural product with similar active ingredients.
I found Grabgreen who makes a fragrance-free 'pod' product that has the exact same active ingredients as Affresh but without any of the 'bad'.
Only 'naturally derived' ingredients, and nothing else added. I was extremely happy to find these.
They worked perfectly and got rid of the 'nasty' smell that had built up in the washer, esp. with having 2 dogs...
