You might be asking yourself?
- Why is it important to use safe laundry detergent?
- Why should laundry detergent and dryer sheets be one of the first things I replace?
- For starters, just like everything else, using safe laundry detergent means one more step to living above the wellness line.
- It is one of the first things to replace because it affects the entire family. Replacing toxic laundry detergent and dryer sheets with toxin-free products means that there is no more wearing clothes or rolling in sheets that are filled with chemicals 24/7. These chemicals are transferred onto your skin and absorb into your body throughout the entire day.
Scan your Laundry Detergent or your dryer sheets with your Think Dirty app. What score did you get? Now check out one of the ingredients that was rated a four or higher. Are you surprised?
It is common to see harmful chemicals like Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) in detergents. It is a foaming agent that has been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, and biochemical or cellular changes, possible mutations, and cancer.
There is some controversy over whether SLS is safe or harmful, but to be honest, if there is any question that it could cause the things listed above, I’m going to avoid it. What about you?
So I choose to use Thieves Laundry Soap instead 🙂
With a plant-based formula, Thieves Laundry Soap gently and naturally washes your clothes, cleaning them without any chemical or synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength to leave your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent.
Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz (946 ml).
For dryer sheets I use dryer balls instead with a few drops of Essential Oils 🙂
