Which Laundry Detergent is Non Toxic?

 

I shared what toxic chemicals to avoid in laundry detergent in my previous post, ‘What Toxic Chemicals To Avoid In Laundry Detergent.’  Now I want to share with you non toxic, natural laundry detergent brands I have researched. These laundry detergents do not contain toxic chemicals such as fragrance, toxic surfactants, bleach or chlorine, optical brighteners, toxic stabilizer or preservatives. They contain eco-friendly, natural ingredients that are safe. Some natural laundry detergents even use organic or certified organic ingredients.

I included an EWG (Environmental Working Group)’s rating for each laundry detergent below. When you click on the link of the rating, you will be able to see each ingredient’s toxicity rating by EWG. All of them have ingredients that are rated from A to C only. (A is the best and F is the worst)  Tide Pods Laundry Detergent Ocean Mist Scent which I talked about in my previous post is rated at ‘F‘ by EWG.  It includes some ingredients that are rated ‘F’ or ‘D’. Not all of the natural laundry detergents I listed have an EWG’s rating, however, you can still see their ingredients in the ingredient list I included.  These natural laundry detergents are especially great for sensitive skin, some declare they are even safe for babies. Let’s take a look!

Final Thoughts

All of these natural laundry detergents are great! My favourites are Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder, Greenshield Certified Organic Laundry Detergent and Fit Organic Laundry Detergent. I like Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder because it is formulated with only five earth-derived ingredients. I like Green Shield and Fit Organic Laundry Detergent since they use certified organic ingredients. I have been using Molly’s Suds and Green Shield laundry detergent and they wash our clothes very well with no toxic chemicals. I have been also using Rockin Green Laundry Detergent for my baby’s clothes and it also has been working very well!  Eco Nuts Organic Laundry Detergent is something very interesting because it is made with “nuts” that are actually dried berries from a tree. I definitely want to give it a try one day.
