The detergents that we use mindlessly when washing our clothes contain a whole range of cancer causing chemicals, some of them being Sodium lauryl sulfate, NPE (nonylphenol ethoxylate), Phosphates and 1,4 dioxane. These are known to cause skin irritation, organ toxicity, affect reproductive health and can cause possible mutations and even cancer. Not just these, when you contaminate water with these, it adversely impacts the environment and the waterways.
Healthy alternative: Natural or home made detergents
