Silky Soft Laundry …. day 21

By on 4-21-2014 in Clean in 30 Days

ry=400Every mom wants her laundry to be silky soft…especially for our little bundles of joy, no matter how big they get.  You too can have silky soft laundry that is clean-smelling by using the new and improved Get Clean® Soft Fabric Concentrate.  It contains a special plant-based ingredient that adds extra softness to fabrics. Plus, it’s HE compatible and biodegradable!

This special softener adds the cozy goodness your family will love and leaves clothes virtually static free. I no longer have to search for my daughters teeny socks in the legs of my hubby’s sweats.  Not to mention how much Greg appreciates that those socks…or even my panties (hehe)…do not reveal themselves at an in opportune time.

It also works to reduce wrinkles.  That in itself is a huge selling point for me as I HATE ironing.

The Shaklee Difference

For softening, Shaklee Soft Fabric Concentrate rivals Melaleuca EcoSense® fabric softener*.  Get Clean® Soft Fabric Concentrate is as effective as Ultra Downy®, Snuggle®, and Ultra Suavitel® reduction*.

*These performance comparisons were conducted on Feb. 4 and March 7, 2011,
and are valid only for the named products marketed at that time.
 

Why do we use fabric softener?

Washing machines and dryers can wreak havoc on your fabrics.  Fibers become stiff and full of static cling when they rub against one another thus creating positively and negatively charged ions that are attracted to one another.  Fabric softeners coat the fibers with special softening agents that reduce friction and neutralize negatively charged particles. The result is silky soft laundry!

I know we all want our laundry to be clean and fresh as well as feel silky soft.  I did some investigating found out that some of the chemicals used in name brand softeners have been linked to some serious health issues…

Benzyl Alcohol….upper respiratory tract irritant

Ethanol…on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Hazardous Waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders

Limonene…known carcinogenimages

A-Terpineol…can cause respiratory problems, including fatal edema, and central nervous system damage

Ethyl Acetate…narcotic on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list

Camphor…causes central nervous system disorders

Chloroform…neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic

Linalool…narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders

Pentane…chemical known to be harmful if inhaled

Benzyl acetate…linked to pancreatic cancer
Wow!  I can’t pronounce half of those never mind even know what they are.  Knowing that these chemicals are embedded in your clothes is bad enough.  Realizing that they will also slowly release themselves into the air that your kiddos breathe and onto their skin which will absorb all those chemicals makes it even worse.   Kind of makes you want to forego theUnknown fabric softener huh?

But WAIT…..don’t be too hasty!  There is an all natural alternative.

Get Clean® Soft Fabric Concentrate is a biodegradable formula made with sustainable ingredients from natural sources that will get you that silky soft laundry without harming your kiddos, you or the planet.  Try some today for only $10.35 ($8.80 for members)!  Remember…it’s concentrated so you use less!
