Warning: Your Laundry Detergent is full of toxic chemicals.
Now a days to be a smart mom, you have to balance the rising cost of all goods PLUS make sure you aren’t bringing ingredients into your home that that lead to skin irritation, trigger allergic reactions, and even harm the environment. Read on to find the best laundry detergents pods and select the one that’s right for you.
How we chose the laundry detergent pods we use in our house
After researching expert do’s and don’ts of laundry detergent ingredients, we searched for laundry detergents that were free from all the “bad stuff” like phthalates, phosphates, petroleum, and artificial dyes. We then did load after load of laundry (soccer jerseys, delicates, dog urine, and just regular white T’s) to find the best performing laundry detergent pods with the best ingredients.
1. Clean People
Clean People Pods have been a staple in my laundry routine for 2 years. I feel good about using this on my children’s clothes, my sheets, stained clothing, EVERYTHING! I switched from Tide to Clean People the reason is Clean People Pods clean my laundry without synthetic fragrances, optical brighteners, and other harmful chemicals for your body. In short, this is exactly like the laundry detergent power you grew up with but everyone should be making the switch away from the big brands that have chemicals that imbalance your endocrine system and cause skin sensitivities.
2. Molly Suds
Really! There are only 5 ingredients in it! If you suffer from allergies or eczema, Molly’s Suds is a safe bet because of its simple ingredients. You just need one pod and your clothes are clean!
Seventh Generation is a popular household brand and the manufacturer has goals to have clean ingredients to help the earth. It is dermatologist tested for safe use on sensitive skin and there are no brighteners in it. I had some difficulty with. the dissolving of these pods – so you have to make sure you put them in the drum first.
Tide is a trusted household name. This formula is hypoallergenic and has zero dyes or perfumes. It is even recognized by the National Eczema Association and the National Psoriasis Foundation for being gentle on sensitive skin. This Tide formula has optical brighteners. I don’t personally like it in my formulas because they may have negative impacts on your hormones. BUT if you want super bright whites – optical brighteners achieve that.
Arm & Hammer is a brand known for great pricing! If you are super price sensitive these pods could be an option! The scent was too strong for me, but I wanted to include a pod that had great pricing.
Final Verdict: Clean People Laundry Detergent Pods are the best laundry detergent to have in your house if you are looking for cleaner ingredients with zero compromising on cleaning power!
