Washing Detergent

washing machineAlthough it is possible to make your own laundry detergents, it can be a little time consuming so we normally buy them. We always buy environmentally-friendly products, here are a few things to look out for when choosing a product to make sure that it not only gets you clothes clean but is also safe for the environment and you family. Look for products which contain vegetable-oil-based soap and which biodegrade in a few days. You products should not contain EDTA, NTA, phosphates, non-biodegradable optical brighteners, or sythetically derived preservatives.
