Learn The Truth About Your (Dangerous) Laundry Detergent

While our typical laundry detergents are making our clothes seem fresh and clean, they may actually be doing much more harm than good. Very few people know just how dangerous regular laundry detergents can be so we thought that it was important for us to tell you! Here are seven reasons why they can be toxic:

  1. The fragrances which seem to smell so nice are actually synthetic and has: formaldehyde which is a chemical compound known to cause cancer in animals, other carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) and phthalates which have shown negative effects on reproductive health and respiratory system.
  2. Most detergents have optical brighteners (additives that add blue light, making whites seem whiter) which stay in the clothes long after washing and can cause skin irritation.
  3. The chemicals have a negative effect on the environment, contributing to water pollution in particular.
  4. Laundry detergent manufacturers don’t have to list all ingredients on packaging, so you have no idea what chemicals they could be adding and whether or not they’re hazardous.
  5. Fabric softeners are designed to stay in the clothes after washing which means continuous contact between chemicals and the skin.
  6. Chlorine bleach (found in most detergents) when going down drain can produce organochlorines which can create problems for reproductive and neurological systems.
  7. Majority of products never been tested so we have no idea if they are actually safe to use or not.

TOXIC INGREDIENTS IN YOUR LAUNDRY DETERGENT?

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!
