Nice smelling clothes cost you more than you pay in the supermarket. Do you have any idea what they do to your body?
Fabric softeners are associated with comfort, freshness and sweetness. Yes, that is what you see on the TV. But, in the real world fabric softeners contain numerous toxins and chemicals. These penetrate deeply in the skin, and end up in your system. You can actually inhale some of them, too. These toxins are dangerous, especially for small children.
Fabric softeners are packed with toxic combination of chemicals, and they also contain an unhealthy dose of fragrance. Fragrance chemicals cannot be removed, since they are supposed to remain in the fabric. If by any chance you did not know, this is referred to as ‘fragrance substantivity.’ It shows how long a fragrance remains on the surface, and does it change when exposed to different temperatures, humidity and other factors.
