When we wash and then dry our clothes, we assume that our laundry is fresh and ready-to-wear, but how clean is it really? Laundry detergents, fabric softeners, dryer sheets and even dryer balls made from PVC, contain some not-so-snuggly ingredients that are doing a lot of harm to our health and our planet! Although these products are marketed to make us believe that the warm fuzzy bunnies, teddy bears, or babies are safe and comforting, we often overlook the fine print telling us that they contain hazardous chemicals. The good news is that there are healthy, truly clean options.
