My new mantra for life is "Less, but better". SmartKlean laundry products make my laundry fit into that mantra with ease.
I learned that traditional laundry detergents were not for me & my family, when I delved into cloth diapering a few years ago.
The laundry detergent companies will have you believing you're wrapping yourself in fresh cut Spring flowers, strewn across a babbling brook, with a hint of lemon. The truth is,detergents saturate your laundry with chemicals. Here are just some of those chemicals -
Phenols- Deemed toxic by the National Health Institute, phenols can cause damage to the lungs, heart, kidneys and liver. They are very easily absorbed into the skin, making them especially dangerous.
Optical brighteners- These trick the eye by altering ultraviolet wavelengths to make clothes look whiter. Studies have shown these agents are extremely toxic to fish and can cause mutations in bacteria. They can also trigger strong allergic reactions in humans when exposed to sunlight.
Surfactants-A surfactant is a substance which basically binds to oily particles and carries them away with water during washing. These are what make our clothes clean when we wash them. Surfactants can be natural or synthetic. Natural surfactants are generally safe for people and the water supply, but chemical surfactants are not. Commercial laundry detergents are loaded with synthetic surfactants.
Fragrance-Artificial fragrances in laundry products are a strong irritant. The chemicals in fragrance additives can cause itchy, watery eyes and stinging nostrils. But the effects go much deeper than that. Chemical fragrances can trigger asthma attacks and aggravate allergies. They can even affect your thinking, making concentration and coordination difficult. All of these irritations show their worst in sensitive individuals, although no one is immune to the effects of these chemicals.
Seriously. Pop the the SmartKlean ball in your washer and walk away. Other than sunning your ball every once in awhile, it's a no brainer.
The SmartKlean laundry system is -
People-Friendly - Safe for the whole family! The active components inside are derived from Earth minerals and are formulated to leave zero residues behind. Ideal for sensitive skin.

SmartKlean is a feel good product. I know that the laundry that outfit my family with is just cloth - that's it! Healthy!
And the smell! It's actual fresh - like it just came in off the line hanging in the sun & breeze. I LOVE it! Fragrance of commercial detergents smells dirty to me now.
Today is the launch of the SmartKlean

This is what I have been waiting for to make my laundry system perfect. You know you drop a bit of dinner on your shirt, or your little one drops a strawberry on your cream colored hallway carpet - grab your SmartKlean stick, rub it in a little, moisten, work into a lather and launder as usual or wipe clean.
