But in our opinion, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Most people over the age of 5 aren't likely to eat laundry pods, but almost everyone uses laundry detergent, and most of these are still highly toxic.
True, we're not in the habit of drinking them, but we wash our clothes with them, and these detergents never fully wash out. That's why you can smell them after a load of laundry is done. And while some people like the smell, others recognize how unnatural they are, and don't feel well when breathing them.
The fact is, if they're toxic and you're exposing them to your skin all day and breathing them all day, you are chipping away at your health on a daily basis. We wonder why we're unwell these days, why so many immune systems are compromised. We don't think it's just about laundry detergent, but about all the chemicals we're exposed to along with inadequate nutrition. But we think that laundry detergent is part of the problem.
This is why we're such big fans of detergentless laundry systems like EcoWasher, which we use and love in our own homes and encourage our loved ones to use as well. So ... what about EcoWasher for you?
