At last! An all-natural laundry solution that is kind to your skin and good for the environment! Most laundry detergents typically contain hazardous ingredients including: sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)/sodium laureth sulfate (SLES); 1,4-dioxane; NPE (nonylphenol ethoxylate), and phosphates. These ingredients are known skin and eye irritants, may cause other health problems and are harmful to the environment. At the Soap Chest, we have developed a natural laundry soap that safely cleans your clothes and works well in both standard and HE machines. We use a three step process: first we make a soap (lightly scented with pure essential oil) that is specially formulated for laundry, then we shred it and let it cure. Next, we combine it with other natural ingredients: borax (a disinfectant and water softener) and washing soda (a stain remover and deodorizer) to make a gentle soap that's great for sheets, clothes and even baby laundry! One bag is enough to wash 32 loads of laundry. Use the 1 oz scoop (included) for a normal load.
