It’s Time to Switch to Natural Laundry Detergents!

Organic and natural products have become a big trend, and you can get wonderful baby care, skincare, and cosmetic options – but what about your laundry detergent? After all, these products are absorbed into your linens, towels, clothing, and baby garments – all items that come into direct contact with your skin and use plenty of water and power to keep clean. Here’s why it’s time to swap out your typical store brands for something more natural.

The Problem with Everyday Detergents

Laundry detergents sold in every supermarket and store should be safe – after all, we use them regularly in everyday life. But that’s not always the case. After all, similar standards govern mainstream baby care products and skincare products, and consumers are moving away from these because of the chemicals and toxic materials in them.

Having safe laundry detergents and softeners are just as important as having safe skincare because our skin is exposed to it on an almost constant basis. However, many off the shelf brands contain dioxane, a solvent that the US Environmental Protection Agency has classified as carcinogenic, causing skin irritation, headaches, liver damage, and even kidney damage in larger doses. They also contain sodium laurel sulphate, ammonia, phenols, and phosphates. Optical brighteners, which are used to make white materials look whiter, can also cause skin irritation.

These chemicals not only remain on your clothing after the washing cycle is complete, but they can also penetrate the skin – especially if the material becomes damp when you sweat.

Finally, these chemicals enter our water system in vast quantities every single day, degrading very slowly. There’s consistent proof that this is damaging to water quality, plant life, wildlife, and marine life.

The Natural Laundry Cleaning Solution

The answer to this issue is easy – to change to a natural and organic laundry detergent that is chemical-free, biodegradable, environmentally safe, and non-toxic.

At KidsBliss, we’ve developed a laundry liquid that is all this and more! Made from 100% natural ingredients, it offers gentle cleaning power that not only leaves your linen and garments fresh and clean but also protects natural fibres and delicates. Enriched with Australian eucalyptus, it has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, ensuring your items are hygienic as well as clean, and it can be used on baby items, natural wools, and much more without damaging or staining these materials. We’ve made it easy to make the switch, reducing skin irritation and health issues while caring for the environment!
