TOXIC INGREDIENTS IN YOUR LAUNDRY DETERGENT?

Leave a comment

Doing laundry is a daily chore in all households. Whether it’s a machine-wash or hand-wash, we use an ample amount of the well-advertised, promisingly fragrant and gentle, commercial laundry detergent. But did you know that this essential & seemingly harmless household product is imbuing your clothes & linens with harmful synthetic chemicals and flooding the wastewater with chemical residues that do nothing but harm to the environment?

Your everyday laundry powder may contain toxic chemicals which may pose a variety of health risks ranging from skin irritation and allergies to cancer, poisoning and neurological problems! It is a must to know which ingredients to avoid when buying detergent, especially when we use it on a daily basis and on clothing which is in close contact with our skin. It also helps us control the amount of toxins entering our waterways.

Here’s a list of toxic chemicals which could put your health at risk. Does your detergent have any or a combination of these? Check the label & see for yourself!

If your detergent has any of these toxic ingredients, it’s time to make a switch to healthier, chemical-free alternatives! Be on the look out for natural soaps and soapy nuts. To get you started, we have handpicked some of the best options available in the market here.
