We all want to keep our families both clean and healthy, which is why there has been such a big push in recent years for more natural cleaning products. But no one should have to sacrifice effective cleaning just to avoid harsh or artificial chemicals. Retro Wash Laundry Powder provides a solution: it’s tough on dirt, grime, odors, spills, and stains, while still being gentle enough for not only skin, but also your most delicate fabrics. Whether your washing your infant’s diapers or your great-grandmother’s antique lace, Retro Wash is a perfect laundry solution because it doesn’t contain any:
- Dyes: Does blue detergent clean better than plain old white? No. Chemical dyes don’t help clean your clothes, so why are they there? Steer free of dyes and your skin will thank you; dyes can cause contact dermatitis—itchy red skin.
- Phosphates: Generally recognized as safe for people, phosphates do a number on the environment. When washed into the water supply, they can cause algae blooms through a process called eutrophication, and these blooms will muck up local freshwater sources. Some algae are toxic, but even when they aren’t they can still kill the fish living there by depleting the dissolved oxygen in the water.
- Optical Brighteners: Some detergents hide the fact that they don’t do the greatest job of cleaning by adding chemicals that are designed not to get rinsed out of your clothes. Instead, these chemicals are meant to attach to the fabric and reflect more light. Your clothes look bright and clean, but it’s all an illusion. Without them, you know your clean clothes really are as clean as they look.
- Perfumes: Many people equate nice smells with cleanliness, so it’s no surprise that many detergents are laden with fragrances and perfumes, but these artificial chemicals can cause skin and respiratory problems, especially for those who are already sensitive. If anyone in your household has asthma, allergies, or eczema, it’s a good idea to avoid detergents with perfumes.
