One of my least favorite things in the whole world is walking down the laundry detergent aisle at any store. If I don't think to hold my breath, my lungs, eyes and sinuses are overwhelmed by the fumes, leaving me dizzy and kicking myself for thinking it was a good idea to use THAT aisle as a shortcut.
If you look into the chemicals that are found in most of those products, it's no wonder I have such a reaction to them! They're full of known carcinogens, hormone disruptors, and irritants- some of the chemicals used are even derived from petroleum!
These harmful chemicals aren't just found in detergent, but they're also found in dryer sheets. I would recommend using a clothes line or drying racks to dry your laundry, but if you must use a dryer, dryer balls are the way to go.
The best thing that you can do when deciding what products to use is to be certain to read labels. Now, of course, we hope that you will use our laundry powder, but there are also plenty of other non-toxic alternatives out there such as soap nuts. The most important thing is the giving yourself the ability to make an informed decision.
No petrochemicals here!
