A Dirty Secret of Clean Laundry
Doing the wash means rinsing off dirt, grime and germs, leaving your clothes fresh and clean… right?
If you've been using big brand laundry detergent or dryer sheets, you might be exposing yourself and your family to two very dangerous carcinogens: acetaldehyde and benzene.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has said that these two chemical additives should not be inhaled, yet they find their way into several scented detergents and dryer sheets.
Your best bet is to go natural.
Your second best bet is to skip the perfumes and scents and go scent-free.
Many stores now offer these options, such as dropps, and they're definitely worth the switch.
