I hope you're having a great New Year so far! What are some of your health goals for 2017? If it is to live a more nontoxic lifestyle, then why not start with your laundry routine?
Did you know that any chemical you put on your skin reaches your bloodstream in 26 seconds? This is why it is so important to rid your home of toxic chemicals including laundry detergents and dryer sheets.
Let me introduce you to DANSOAP 100% Natural Laundry Soap. The company just recently launched by two lifelong friends- both named Dan! Everything is sourced locally; they believe in keeping a strong community, so you will notice the label says Made in CLE (Cleveland, Ohio).
They generously sent me an Unscented and a Lavender to try out. As always, this is my personal opinion.
So what is Natural about DANSOAP? They have a great FAQ page to check out and even define the terms we may see on the packaging. Check it out here.
There are only a few key ingredients that will get your clothes simply clean. You aren't going to see big suds in the washer. Why? When you see bubbles normally its fillers such as SLS and chemicals that do not simply need to be there. DANSOAP uses essential oil such as lavender, so you aren't going to see Fragrance on the ingredient list.
How did it work for me? We have two young girls who are constantly staining their clothes, a husband who works in a warehouse! My husband's are of course the dirtiest. I have been using ECOS detergent out of convenience and it was not getting his clothes clean enough. Both the Lavender and Unscented DANSOAP worked really well for all of us! The clothes came out feeling and smelling fresh. We also use wool dryer balls instead of dryer sheets.
It only takes two scoops for a top loading washer like I have and one scoop for a front loading machine.
So what are you waiting for? If you're still using a toxic detergent, try something new this year! Did you ever think about what happens to your detergent when it goes down the drain? It washes into streams, rivers, lakes, and eventually the ocean!
