The wrong way to remove stains from your laundry
In reality, there are multiple cleaning mechanisms that take place at the chemical level to remove stains from your laundry.
- Some of those are chemicals that make suds. Usually, they are surfactants. In a strange way, surfactants make water, well, it makes it wetter. Using a surfactant spreads the fibers in your clothing apart in order to release the stains from the fabrics.
- Solvents are really toxic chemicals Those will literally dissolve or eat away those stains.
- Also, there are other classifications of chemicals that use very high pH or alkaline conditions. This melts those stains away in a process called saponification.
It’s time to open your eyes to the dangers of these products.
Common ingredients normally found in typical “stain fighter products
Plua their known health risks:
Alcohol Ethoxylated (C12-14) (see elements below)
1,4-DIOXANE: cancer, digestive system effects, respiratory effects, skin irritation/allergies/damage, damage to vision.
ETHYLENE OXIDE: cancer, developmental/endocrine/reproductive effects, damage to DNA, respiratory effects, nervous system effects, skin irritation/allergies/damage, damage to vision, general systemic/organ effects
Ethanolamine – respiratory effects, general systemic/organ effects, chronic aquatic toxicity, nervous system effects, skin irritation/allergies/damage, developmental/endocrine/reproductive effects
Benzisothiazolinone: acute aquatic toxicity, skin irritation/allergies/damage, developmental/endocrine/reproductive effects, biodegradation
But what about bleaching?
You might have also tried some of the “oxygen-based bleach” or the “air bleach” types of products. These products use an evaporated peroxide-based formula. The main ingredient is sodium percarbonate.
The challenge with sodium percarbonate as a bleach alternative is it can also cause some dulling with your colors and fabrics. Plus it’s not as effective as bleach because it isn’t as aggressive a chemical.
What lots of companies who manufacture these oxy-type cleaners do to boost the effectiveness is add in various surfactants, buffers, and fillers. You’ll also commonly see little blue beads in the formula, or just notice that the products are the color blue.
Blue is a dirty little trick….
The little blue beads and coloring? Those are actually ultraviolet light-boosted brighteners and dyes. These trick our eyes under ultraviolet light (artificial indoor lighting) into thinking our clothes are brighter and more vibrant. Even though they’re actually not. In the process, they leave a film of toxic chemicals behind that you wear and absorb all day.
Ironically, many people believe when they use oxygen-type cleaners they’re actually being more eco-friendly or safe. In reality, you’re just replacing one toxic chemical with a host of different ones.
Most of those companies don’t even list on their label the exact chemical compounds that are in those oxygen type cleaners and hide them under various names of “patented formulas for example.
There is another class of ingredients that we use that literally digests stains. That’s right. Digest. Keep reading to learn more about how this works.
Don’t bleach the stains, digest them
If everything on the shelves is more or less concentrated bad-for-you products, what is it that you CAN use safely around your family and friends?
The answer is actually crazy simple. Use something that naturally digests the stains and odors – enzymes.
That’s right. Digest. If you think about the microbiome of our gut in our stomach and in our small and lower intestines, we have enzymes and bacteria. And what those enzymes and that bacteria do is literally digest food matter into its natural elements so our body can absorb them.
Rather than cause nerve damage in your nose to cover smells up. Or attempt to kill fungus with carcinogens Or even cover stains up with fragrances that cause a host of health problems; we are proud to have created something truly unique and safe.
Other chemical-focused companies that are creating enzyme products that you might have seen are using strings of enzymes that are extraordinarily synthetic. The challenge with these is that they have a downstream effect in the environment that is extremely disruptive.
We knew that we had to create a better solution. An enzymatic blend that literally eats stains like crazy, but also has no negative health effects on ourselves or our planet.
This is why we created our Enzyme Stain Remover.
Creating breakthroughs in enzymatic technology
Our formula digests stains using our proprietary powdered enzyme blend. When reconstituted with water the enzymes go on a mission to find whatever organic material they can.
Certain enzymes are designed by nature to eat particular kinds of organic materials, i.e. your stains. We carefully crafted a blend of enzymes that covers the spectrum of stains that your fabrics will face. We worked hard to cover all of the bases and arm you with a tool to be a stain-fighting superhero!
This blend will cut through the toughest stains you and your family can accumulate. Items like:
- Pasta Sauce
- Cheese, meat & butter grease
- Olive and coconut oils
- Grass & leaf stans
- And much, much more!
The enzymes that we source and that we blend with are extremely environmentally safe and do an amazing job at digesting organic stains and odors.
