Scan your laundry detergent or your dryer sheets with the Think Dirty app. What score did you get? Now check out one of the ingredients that was rated a four or higher. Are you surprised?
It is common to see harmful chemicals like Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) in detergents. It is a foaming agent that has been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, and biochemical or cellular changes, possible mutations, and cancer.
There is some controversy over whether SLS is safe or harmful, but honestly, I already have enough issues going on that there’s no need to risk adding to them for something that can be easily avoided by using different laundry soap.
It is one of my first (and easiest) things to replace because it affects the entire family. Replacing toxic laundry detergent and dryer sheets with toxin-free products means that there is no more wearing clothes or rolling in sheets that are filled with chemicals 24/7. These chemicals are transferred onto your skin and absorb into your body throughout the entire day.
