Natural Stain Removers
There is no law in the United States that requires products of any kind to list chemicals used in fragrances. Do we really know what chemicals we are exposing ourselves to every time we wash and wear our clothes? Are we at risk for toxic exposure even if we don’t ingest the product?
Before Tide, Pyrex and Gain, people have been washing their clothes naturally for thousands of years. Switching to an all-natural brand or making your own laundry products can help you reduce your toxic exposure.
Below is a list of great stain removers you can safely use to clean your clothes.
Vinegar is a great natural alternative to bleach and can benefit your laundry by naturally brightening your clothes. Adding a cup of distilled white vinegar to your laundry loads can help keep your light colors shining!
Borax occurs naturally in salt deposits in California's Death Valley. Naturally occurring borax is refined by a process of recrystallization but can also be produced synthetically from other boron compounds. Borax is a favored ingredient in a variety of household items such as laundry and cleaning products because it is an effective stain remover and eliminates odors.
As a safer alternative to bleach, hydrogen peroxide can be used to rid your clothes and linens of tough stains from wine, coffee and dyes. It can be used as a pre-washing spot treatment to tackle even the harshest of stains without the toxic exposure to bleach.
Baking soda is an inexpensive, natural product with a wide array of uses. Also known as sodium bicarbonate, baking soda is a white powdery substance. It can be used in ways other than just making cookies. As a natural odor reducer, it is a great addition to laundry because it can soften fabrics and keep your clothes and linen smelling fresh.
