Non-Toxic Laundry Detergents
We searched and found all the safer options for doing your laundry
Non Toxic Laundry Detergent Updated for 2020!
Laundry detergent is such a necessary for every day life that we often don’t stop to think about what it’s made from. Traditional laundry detergent can be made from lots of different ingredients that aren’t great for our health, including SLSs, formaldehyde, bleach, and phosphates. These ingredients have been linked to air pollution and cancer. Yikes!
After lots of research, we collected an assortment of safe, non-toxic detergents to keep your clothes smelling and looking new. Some specifically say they are for baby, others have versions for baby along with the original and both are safe, so choose what you like, and know they really are all safe for any age. You don’t necessarily need a baby specific detergent. Choose what you think works best for you. And, while you’re at it, check out our roundup of fabric softeners and dryer sheets. Yay for clean clothes!
