Although all disposed water goes back into the ground, no matter what type of water you use, the fact that I have well water made me a bit more concerned with this. Also, there is the fact of suffering from a chronic illness for many years which also made me give this consideration.
As I have said, I have done much research and experimenting on how to live a chemical free life. From my cleaning products to my cosmetics to personal care products to my food. When I researched on how to keep our water safer, I learned that most products which create suds have chemicals in them that cause the suds. Most common is sodium lauryl sulfate, which has been linked to cancer, toxicity, skin irritation and endocrine system problems.
It was then that I decided to begin to make my own household cleaning products. I will admit that it was difficult to get used to cleaning products and shampoo that do not lather. We have been trained to believe that we need products that produce a good foam in order to achieve cleanliness. This is very far from true! I use many homemade and natural products which do not have suds, such as dish soap and my laundry soap powder. Although there are no suds whatsoever, my clothes and my dishes always come out clean.
Today I am featuring Naturally Ethereal All Natural Laundry Soap Powder. I have been using this for a few years now and I have had no problems with it and I love it! It contains three simple ingredients and since it does not foam it is perfect for HE washers. The ingredients consist of sodium tetraborate (a natural mineral), sodium carbonate (washing soda) and castille soap (natural vegetable soap).
So, head on over to the Naturally Ethereal Store and check out Naturally Ethereal All Natural Laundry Soap Powder!
