It is important to stay eco friendly while doing your household chores and fulfilling work requirements. For example, if you can reduce the carbon footprint (and the chemical residue) in your home from regularly consumed products, then you are also protecting your own body and the health of your family from harmful harsh chemical agents which are also bad for the environment. What does this have to do with laundry?
Surfactants made easy
Surfactants, the most common of which is soap, are able to chemically form spheres around grease molecules, which are identified by their fatty surface and attract certain properties of the soap right to them. Now, most soap molecules must be formed by basic soap properties formed from basic simple chemical compounds. However, most of us do not buy soap or detergent or cleaner in this most basic form. We enjoy our extra strength, tough on stains, works fast on dirt, perfumed and scented soaps. We like to have good clean laundry that gets clean in the first wash and smells just the way we want it to and removes all of the stains and does not cost very much.
Your body builds up defenses
When your system is constantly exposed to these chemicals, then it must form antibodies and build up defenses in order to protect itself from exposure. This type of consistent bombardment is very similar to the types of emotional stress one encounters in a fast-paced, high-stress urban lifestyle, complete with mortgages, threat of job loss, and at least two children. Both physical and emotional stresses are wearing, and therefore should only occur periodically, not on a consistent regular basis. When you use eco friendly cleaning products, these earth friendly chemicals are less likely to have a reaction with your own biological functions or to trigger stress hormones and adrenaline secretion as a result. So how do you find “green” laundry products?
