5 Things Every Mom Needs to Know About Her Laundry Detergent

In this post, we expose some pretty “slimy” truths about what’s lurking in conventional laundry care products

1. YOUR DETERGENT IS FULL OF CHEMICALS

You’ve been trained to think sudsy laundry products are safe. Unfortunately, they really aren’t. Some chemicals in detergent are neurotoxic, endocrine-disrupting, and even carcinogenic.

When a manufacturer uses less than 1% of a given chemical or fragrance in a finished product, they don’t have to tell you about it. There is little to no supervision or regulation in the industry and most fragrances haven’t been truly tested for safety.

Would you agree it’s time for change?

At MyGreenFills, we disclose ALL of our product ingredients, so you can make an informed, and safe, buying decision.

2. LAUNDRY JUGS ARE DANGEROUS

In the U.S. alone, over 1 billion plastic laundry jugs are used each year. End to end, that’s enough to circle the planet 6 times!

Unfortunately, most recycling companies cannot effectively rinse suds-making chemicals off of plastic. That means millions upon millions of laundry jugs aren’t getting recycled. This results in the reckless deposit of plastic jugs in our landfills and oceans!

We can change this now. Join the refillable laundry revolution!

3. DETERGENT BREAKS DOWN FABRICS

Over time, the constant build up of laundry detergent, coupled with high heat drying, corrupts and separates material fibers.

Most slimy laundry products are made from synthesized petroleum or plant-based oils. Ingredients that are specifically designed to leave behind a film on our clothing and linens.

4. LAUNDRY SLIME MAKES YOUR WASHER STINK

Virtually all conventional detergents (even the so called “eco-detergents”) use phosphate or sulfate-derived suds-makers. These detergents not only leave behind a slimy film on your bloomers, but they also coat the inside of your washing machine.

These chemicals, combined with the warm and moist conditions of our washers, are a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Yuck!

MyGreenFills will literally clean your washer and remove any funky bacteria that may be in there

5- DETERGENT IN YOUR BLOODSTREAM

Studies show up to 60% of what you put on your skin can be absorbed into your bloodstream.

When conventional laundry detergent mixes with perspiration, micro-suds are created on your skin. Those can get absorbed into your bloodstream. Which, in turn, can cause a buildup in your system. This is a problem when you realize that a number of these chemicals are known to cause health issues.

If you find this as disturbing as we do, you’ll be pleased to know MyGreenFills products aren’t filled with harmful surfactants, buffers, brighteners, and dyes. Our products are safe for you, your family, and your laundry room.
