How much laundry do you do every week? Did you know that the average family washes about 400 loads of laundry each year? Besides all the work and precious time that goes into keeping your family’s clothes nice and clean, that process can also impact the environment and your children’s health in the following ways:
Energy Use. Those loads of laundry add up to about 13,500 gallons of water annually.
Chemical Exposure. Conventional laundry detergents can contain harmful ingredients that end up in nearby water bodies. These chemicals, such as phosphates, can impact aquatic ecosystems by causing algal blooms and killing marine life.
Skin Irritation. The chemicals can also cause health problems such as skin irritation. Our children are especially sensitive to these types of ingredients and can break out in a rash just from using certain laundry detergents. If your children get a red, itchy rash that starts right after they put on their clothes, then it could very well be from the detergent. These types of rashes are typically worse on arms and legs where clothing is tighter and rubs more on the skin.
How To Choose Safer Detergent
You can avoid these problems by choosing a safer laundry detergent such as Cleancult’s detergent pods. They are a three-in-one product, combining stain removal, fabric softener, and detergent. It is safe for all types of washers—including all brands and whether they are top loading or front loading. My family really enjoyed trying out these pods over the last couple of weeks. There are so many wonderful benefits to choosing Cleancult.
Cleancult has developed non-toxic laundry pods that are free of harmful ingredients like chlorine, dyes, phosphates, and masking agents. They are also free of ingredients that can cause allergies like wheat, oats, barley, rye or any derived products from Gluten; dairy; soy; egg; and nuts. They are also hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin. You can view the list of the ingredients they use and avoid using.
Free of Animal Cruelty
Being green doesn’t just mean how a product affects us; it also means how it impacts animals and plants sharing the earth with us. Cleancult’s detergent is free of animal cruelty, which means none of the ingredients it uses were tested on animals.
Some people are skeptical of eco-friendly products’s effectiveness because they don’t use traditional ingredients, even if they are harmful. But Cleancult really works! Our clothes were fresh and spotless. Cleancult has even achieved a cleaning rating equivalent to conventional detergents by the third party Sterling Laboratories. And it is rated as an energy efficient product.
Better Powder Form
Cleancult comes in powder only, which is much better than liquid detergent for a number of reasons. Each pod is used for one load of laundry. It is so easy to just pop it in the washing machine without having to worry about measuring out how much liquid you need. You also don’t have to deal with spills from trying to pour it into your washer. Who wants to deal with that sticky mess? Also, powder is more efficient than liquid detergents and tends to be cheaper per load than liquids. Finally, some studies show that powder performs better than liquids since they have a better bleaching technology than liquids.
Cleancult’s packaging is so compact in a small blue cardboard box. Because they are concentrated in pods about the size of a marshmallow, they take up so much less space in your laundry room than a huge jug of liquid detergent or a box of powder detergent from the grocery store. The cardboard packaging is also more environmentally friendly than plastic bottles. Finally, although all detergents degrade over time, powders have a longer shelf life than liquids. Overall, when you buy Cleancult, you are reducing your carbon footprint to help reduce climate change because of the minimal packaging that requires less space and fuel during the shipping process.
Convenient Delivery system
One of the best parts of Cleancult is that it is delivered directly to your door. You never need to worry about running out of detergent again or dragging it home from the grocery store. They offer several types of membership plans to fit your family’s needs. You have the flexibility to change, skip, or cancel your plan at any time. And there is complimentary free shipping anywhere in the United States!
Finally, the most unique part of Cleancult is their humor. On the instruction card that came in the box with the pods, they wrote some very funny statements that had me laughing out loud: “‘I like putting harmful chemicals on my skin’– said no one ever”. It’s not very often that I find product instructions humorous. Cleancult really knows how to brighten our day–and clothes–in so many ways.
