According to the research conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average family washes around 400 loads of laundry a year.
Do you know what that means?
It means that there’s up to 20 kg of commercial laundry powder sifting through your clothes and its residue in close contact with your skin almost 24 hours a day.
Kind of scary right?
After all, what goes in our laundry wash goes on our clothes, and what goes on our clothes goes on our skin. Some laundry powders have intrusive effects and if you have sensitive skin it pays to know what to look out for. Though perfumes and dyes are obvious, another big skin enemy is detergent powders that contain insoluble chemicals which are also known as ‘fillers’.
Want to know if your current laundry powder is filled with fillers?
I dare you to try the solubility test.
Put ½ a teaspoon of your current laundry powder into a clear glass of water. Allow it to stand and observe. If it dissolves completely, your current laundry powder is safe. If not, you should change your laundry powder now.
However, how will I know if I chose the right and safest laundry powder in the market?
- If you are living in the remote areas of Australia and rely on a septic system, choose laundry powder that may not upset the balance of the microorganisms that make a septic system work efficiently.
- Choose a blend that is a true concentrate so you use less per measure, so it lasts longer resulting in a very cost-effective result compared to any other laundry powder.
- Make sure that it is an adaptable product, 100% soluble and able to be used in hot or cold water and in the top or front loaders.
