Unlike food, cleaning products are not required to provide a full list of ingredients. They only have to identify those of “known concern.” Unfortunately, many potentially hazardous chemicals are still being used in household cleaners today. Lucky for you, we’ve got a Dirty Dozen Guide to help you steer clear of toxins in your laundry room! (Read on to download…)
REASON #5: THOSE “FRESH AND CLEAN” FRAGRANCES ARE NOT AS SAFE AS THEY SMELL.
We’ve become lab rats for laundry chemical manufacturers.
Everyone loves “fresh and clean” smelling towels. This is why fragrance is a major influencer when purchasing laundry products.
The problem is, you’ve been trained to think these addictive smells are great. In reality, you’re snuggling up to toxic chemicals without a second thought. Fragrances (i.e., chemicals) which have to be blended together with other synthesized chemicals for that “fresh” smell to linger behind on your clothing and linens.
Some fragrances are neurotoxic, endocrine-disrupting, and even carcinogenic. So, although that lingering scent makes you feel fresh and clean, it’s a dangerous cocktail lurking in your fabrics to be absorbed by your bodies 24/7.
If a manufacturer uses less than 1% of a given chemical or fragrance in a finished product, they simply don’t have to tell you about it. And this is legal!
Since there’s so little supervision or regulation in the industry, most fragrances haven’t been truly tested for safety.

REASON #4: LAUNDRY JUGS ARE HARMFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT.
Most people are unaware of the downstream effects their purchasing decisions have on the environment. In the U.S. alone, over 1 billion plastic laundry jugs are consumed each year. End to end, that’s enough to circle the planet 6 times!
Millions upon millions of these jugs aren’t getting recycled. That’s because some recycling companies cannot effectively rinse the suds-making chemicals off of the plastic. This results in tons of reckless plastic in our landfills and oceans right now!
Check out this video to see how dangerous non-recycled plastic is to our planet – it’s at the bottom of the page.

REASON #3: CONVENTIONAL LAUNDRY SLIME SHORTENS LINEN LIFE.
Your clothing and linens are great big sponges. They absorb most of the stuff you put on them.
Unfortunately, most slimy laundry products are made from synthesized petroleum or plant-based oils. Chemicals specifically designed to trick your eyes into thinking your “whites are whiter.” They also fool your nose so it believes your laundry is “fresh and clean.” They do this by leaving behind a toxic chemical film.
Over time, the constant build up of this laundry slime, coupled with high heat drying, corrupts and separates material fibers…
REASON #2: LAUNDRY CHEMICALS MAKE WASHERS STINK LIKE A TOILET.
Virtually all conventional detergents (even the so-called “eco-detergents”) use phosphate or sulfate-derived suds makers. Not only do they leave behind a slimy film on your bloomers, they also coat the inside of your washing machine with stinky scum.
High Efficiency (HE) washers use less water than old-school washing machines. Less water means less dilution. And less dilution means that slimy film inside your washing machine is not getting rinsed away.
The gross reality is that these chemicals, combined with the warm and moist conditions of your washing machine, are a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
So really, your washing machine is not unlike a toilet – full of pungent bacteria. Yuck!!!
MyGreenFills will literally clean your washer and remove any funky bacteria that may be in there.
REASON #1: CONVENTIONAL LAUNDRY CHEMICALS CAN BE ABSORBED INTO OUR BLOODSTREAM.
Wonder why conventional laundry detergents and fabric softeners cause allergic reactions, especially on babies?
Studies show that up to 60% of what you put on your skin can be absorbed into your bloodstream. That’s why some medications (i.e. smoker’s nicotine patch) are dosed through the skin.
When conventional laundry slime mixes together with your perspiration, micro-suds are created on your skin and get absorbed into your bloodstream.
If you find this as disturbing as we do, you’ll be pleased to know MyGreenFills products aren’t filled with goopy surfactants, buffers, brighteners, and dyes. Our products are safe for you, your family, and your laundry room.
