On my quest to reduce toxins in our household I tackled products found in the laundry room this month.

Did you know that laundry detergent & dryer sheets can contain surfactants, stabilizers and phosphates that are known to release carcinogens that are harmful to our body?* In my quest to reduce my exposure to toxins so that my body is fully supported in having a healthy immune system without any MS symptoms or decreased quality of life it’s an easy choice for me to switch out products in our home that could be harmful.
Here are 2 easy ways to makeover products in your laundry room to reduce toxins you or your family are exposed to.
On my last LRP (loyalty rewards program) order from doTERRA I grabbed a bottle of laundry detergent. I’ve been using organic brands from my local grocery store but have made the switch to doTERRA’s brand as I absolutely love the company and earn amazing points towards free products every month on the LRP program. It’s better than Shoppers Optimum!
I love this product because I can use this one bottle for 64 loads vs my former Eco Max detergent which claims 50 loads.
If you’re feeling crafty here is a DIY recipe that I’ll be trying later this month from my friend Ange Peters. After I make this version I’ll keep the concentrated detergent on hand for extremely dirty loads (I’m talking clothes covered in mud from hiking or obstacle racing).
Dryer Balls vs Sheets
I’ve thankfully been using dryer balls for a few years now instead of dryer sheets but I had 3 plastic ones that were well used and needed replacing. When I was in Victoria in August I picked up 3 ULAT woolen dryer balls to replace my plastic ones. I’ve been adding 3 drops of Lavender oil to each ball before throwing them in the dryer. This leaves our laundry smelling heavenly!

I share with you why I love doTERRA, how they source their oils and why the wholesale membership is a great way to shop. Ordering doTERRA products monthly on the LRP program has basically replaced all of my shopping at local drug stores and many products from the grocery store that now get shipped directly to the house.
