Your toxic laundry

Every time you do laundry more than seven hundred thousand micro fibers are created, many of them released into the environment.  These “fibers”  are a significant problem.

Using fabric softener or dyer sheets is equally bad!

Making several small changes in your laundry routine will make big differences in what we release into the environment!

  • Only do full laundry loads
  • Use safer detergents
  • Wash every thing in cold water
  • Sort your laundry, not just by color but by weight as well
  • Lighten your whites without bleach

To remove difficult stains do not use toxic substances.  Even the toughest stains come out easily with some common items in every one’s cabinet.

Use white vinegar for stains like grass, berries, blood, grease, coffee, wine, mustard and sugary products.  Soak the stained clothes for ten minutes before you wash them.

For just made stains apply salt or baking soda to absorb the stains, then apply baking soda.
