These products are especially harmful to people who suffer from severe chemical sensitivities and asthma and other respiratory illnesses. The lungs are terrible things to waste. The best way to prevent health problems is to use 100% organic non-toxic laundry products. Baking soda, white distilled vinegar, and Borax are very effective in cleaning clothes. You can also add organic essential oils to your laundry for improved smell and efficient cleaning. Lemon, orange, lavender, eucalyptus, and mint essential oils are very effective in providing safe organic aromatherapy and are anti-microbial. These products are very efficient and completely biodegradable.
For a large load, you can use this mixture that my husband and I've used for many years: One Cup of baking soda, one Cup of white distilled vinegar, and half a Cup of Borax. It's best to use a measuring cup for accuracy. Many environmentally conscious people throughout North America and abroad have been washing their clothing this way for many years and they continue to do so on a regular basis. It’s wise and sensible to use organic non-toxic laundry products in order to reduce our carbon footprint on Planet Earth for us and future generations. What's your favorite way of doing organic non-toxic laundry?
