Taking care of a situation could have different connotations in different cases. People often resort to the easier way out regardless of the consequences that could actually bring worse later on. Taking strong drugs for immediate relief from a pain or disease is not advisable always because the drug could also have the same strong effect on the body as it did on the disease. This same phenomenon usually applies to most situations, like health, physical growth and daily chores such as laundry.
Laundry care is not so simple anymore. There are multiple types of fabrics today and each requires a specific way to be stored, washed or dried. A garment that has a color bleeding problem should always be washed separately; right temperature is needed to wash a garment with a certain type of fabric like woolen clothes, delicate clothes need to be hand washed and so on. Also some laundry detergents might have potent elements that deal strongly and effectively with dirt and stains. However, the same effect could have harsh and damaging result on the fabric of the garment. Even worse, some detergents and soaps could be harmful for people especially with sensitive skin types.
Talking about sensitive skin types reminds me of baby skins. Babies obviously have one of the most sensitive skin types. They are more susceptible to anything harsh in nature and the saddest part is that they cannot complain and let you know exactly what they are suffering from. Hence, it is the parents’ and caretakers’ responsibility to ensure the ultimate care possible for them is undertaken. Chemical laden soaps and detergents are a strict no when it especially comes to washing baby clothes (even for adult clothes). The latest and smartest alternative is to go natural.
Using natural products like a soap nut shell ensures the safety for the skin of the baby. Soap nut shells or washing nuts are fruits of the tree and so have no chemical agents added to them. They have been used for washing for thousands of years by native peoples in Asia and Native Americans too. Studies have also shown that they exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, thus clinically qualifying them to be used for the laundry of people with sensitive skins. They are absolutely allergy-free, effective for cleaning and gentle at the same time on fabrics.
Researching on various chemical laundry soaps and detergents could become a wild goose chase. There are so many brands in the market and most of them have components that ordinary ears have never heard of. So why beat around the bush when there is a splendid solution right here?
There are more advantages of using natural laundry products than just being allergy-free. Soap nuts and other natural products like natural liquid laundry detergents are derived from herbs and plants. They provide longevity to the clothes by not harming the fabric color, texture and softness. They can also be used on all fabrics and at all temperatures for more versatility in washing. Apart from being allergy-free, soap nuts are also non-animal derived, non-toxic and biodegradable, therefore cause no ecological harmful effects as well. By using such products you go absolutely natural and make a green statement. These natural products are also quite affordable.
Wait no more, find a shop that provides these great products and start using them. Soap nuts and natural laundry detergent let you save and keep your fabrics safe.
