I know it sounds too good to be true, but it is!
There was a time that the safest place to be was in our home. A time when our yards were grown by nothing but the sun and rain. We played hide and seek and picked dandelions and held them under each other’s chin to find out who liked butter. Anyone remember doing that? We ate Grandma’s food that had been sitting on the counter for hours, we even ate chicken and fish fried in LARD. It was healthy and wholesome, and I never got sick from it. But there is a problem – things are not the way they used to be. The world has gotten a lot more complicated. There are thousands of synthetic chemicals, hormones, additives, repellents and preservatives that link to learning disabilities, asthma, obesity, birth defects and allergies.
There are approximately 83,000 industrial and toxic chemicals in use and about 700 new ones introduced into commerce each year in the United States alone. Many of these chemicals cause cancer and other diseases in the human body, yet every year there are more diseases – causing chemicals carelessly approved to further pollute our environment and each other. Our regulatory agencies can’t keep up with the marketplace. It seems as though everything has become improved, antibacterial, enriched, hypoallergenic, natural, new and fortified. I say let’s go back to the good old days – not that they were perfect, but at least you could eat an egg and not feel threatened. Our children and grandchildren are being affected by these chemicals everyday, along with the rest of us, children being at a greater risk.
Yes, there are chemicals everywhere – in our food, clothing, soaps, cleaning supplies, beauty supplies, and YES, in your laundry detergent. What is the answer? Small changes you make everyday add up to a safer, healthier home. Find out ingredients to avoid, what products to buy, and non-toxic alternatives to pesticides, herbicides or any-cides.
One easy, yet simple way to lessen the toxins in your home is to add an EcoWasher to your existing washing machine. You no longer have the need for laundry detergent, hot water or fabric softener. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. I have been using mine for 3 years and would never go back to using chemicals to do my family’s laundry ever again. Yes, I am in love with MY ECOWASHER.
