What laundry bleach in washing powder does to clothes
- Chlorine bleach wreaks havoc on clothes, it’s harsh on fibres and the environment.
- It also cancels out detergent in the washing cycle by deactivating the cleaning enzymes, reducing the efficiency.
- It can produce harmful acids or poisonous gases when mixed with other cleaning products.
What is SLS and what does SLS do to your skin
- Sodium lauryl sulfate is a surfactant which allows oil and water molecules to bind together – it’s what’s found in soaps and detergents.
- SLS is a proven skin irritant, and contact can cause skin irritation.
- Laundry powders that contain SLS can leave it as a residue on fabric fibre, which comes in contact with skin for prolonged periods.
- SLS can be a problem for those who suffer with allergies or have sensitive skin. Allergy symptoms can include hives, skin irritation, red eyes and dry skin.
Why are fillers in laundry detergents bad for you, your machine + environment
- Fillers damage your washing machine, they can corrode the alloy and metal parts of the machine.
- Filler builds up in parts of the machine as sediment that will turn to a hard cement-like blockage in pipes and passageways and can damage pumps and other internals.
- Shortens the life of the rubber hoses in your machine.
- Because fillers stay in the micro fabrics of laundry, they can cause allergic reactions on your skin.
- Fillers rot your fabric in storage and eventually clothes “smell”. This is because the filler remains in the fabric, and attracts moisture causing mould, rot and odour.
- Use of fillers renders your grey water unusable on gardens as they are harmful to plants
