6 Reasons to Switch to Natural Laundry Products

There’s more to going green than simply recycling or reusing items.  For the maximum results and to call yourself a true ‘greenie’ you need to use natural laundry products too.

At TIGS&BOO, we aim to reduce our waste and carbon footprint wherever we can and that includes in the laundry too.  If you haven’t made the switch to 100% natural and sustainable laundry products yet, we’re going to share with you six reasons why you should.

6 Reasons to Start Using Natural Laundry Products Now!

You want to be healthy.  That’s a fabulous goal and very achievable. So, you’re careful about what you eat and drink, exercise regularly and any lotions, oils and makeup you use are 100% natural too.  However, what about what you wash your clothes in?  Are you still using chemical-filled laundry powder in the washing machine and then hanging your clothing using plastic pegs made from petroleum?  Here are six reasons why you need to stop right now:

 

  1. Your skin is highly absorbent.  When you wear clothes washed in traditional laundry powder, the residue is transferred to and then absorbed by your skin.
  2. Many of the ingredients in chemical laundry powders are potentially carcinogenic, poisonous, cause hormone imbalances and can affect our metabolism and reproductive organs.
  3. Natural laundry products are far less likely to cause skin irritations, making them safe for those with sensitive skin, especially babies and children.
  4. When your washing machine empties, all the chemical-laden water is drained out.  The key thing there is chemical-laden water.  You are unintentionally damaging the environment and causing more problems.
  5. Stainless steel pegs or bamboo pegs are reusable, sturdy and are not harmful to the environment.  There’s no issue with their manufacturing processes causing damage to the environment either.
  6. Natural laundry liquid such as the Eco Store brand comes in a concentrated formulation.  This means you use less, saving you money and reducing packaging while getting a fabulous clean!  Soapnuts are also reusable, fragrance-free, biodegradable and completely chemical free, making them a great choice too!

We’d like to know, what’s stopping you going The Full Monty and using natural laundry products in your home?  We are and we love the health, environmental and financial benefits it’s providing our family!  Take a look through our laundry products, add them to your shopping cart and try them at home today.  We know you’ll love them too!
