God bless Whole Foods.
Late last week I was running dangerously low on undies, and I had absolutely no laundry detergent.
This led to a frantic search for environmentally friendly laundry detergents at my ordinary local supermarkets. To my surprise and total dispair, they didn't have any. Absolutely none. Nada.
I was scared. Was I gonna run out of undies before I found laundry soap? Dear God.
That's where Whole Foods comes in. Wearing my absolutely last clean pair of underoos, I biked down to their South Loop store during my lunch hour and finally found the soap I was looking for. It's the Whole Foods Generic Brand 365 and it claims to be biodegrabable and free of phosphates and dyes. It is also not that expensive, which is an obvious plus.
One problem: it came with a plastic scooper inside. Ahhhhh!!!! Damn you Whole Foods.
