Clean The Earth with
Natural Laundry Products
Natural laundry products are designed to work the same way as harsh commercial laundry products EXCEPT they
do not contain harmful chemicals and are environmentally friendly.
The main properties of detergents are to break down the surface tension of water. This allows the water containing other chemicals, like surfactants, etc to enter into the fabric or pores of the item being cleaned. This allows the dislodging and removal of the dirt, stain or debris.
The body is made up of many sensitive mucous membranes, such as the eyes, nose, mouth and lungs. These mucous membranes rely on a delicate balance between water content and other bodily fluids, such as sebum and enzymes.
If any of these mucous membranes comes into contact with detergents, this delicate balance is severely disrupted. The moisture-retaining sebum is oily, and this is the first thing to be attacked by the detergents. This allows the moisture within the tissues to be washed away or contaminated.
The tissues then lose their natural elasticity and ability to hold their natural chemical balance. The result is that tissues become easily torn, or ruptured. This increases risk of infections.
It is easy to protect the most vulnerable parts of our body such as the hands, with gloves, however, many modern cleaning products come in spray bottles, others require dilution in hot water.
This leads to the potential of chemicals being sprayed in the air or being transmitted in hot, steamy fumes with the following risk of being inhaled into the lungs or reaching the eyes and other mucous membranes.
Some areas in America have banned phosphates from laundry detergent and other cleaning products. However, phosphate is still a staple ingredient in commercial automatic dishwashing detergent because that formulation is exempt from restrictions.
