I have become hyper aware of the toxic chemicals in commercial laundry detergents since I became a mom. So, I switched to eco-friendly, all natural detergents and stopped using chemical bleach. Many people think that you have to sacrifice "white" whites and stain-removing power when you use natural detergents. This is a myth that I put to the test with Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent with Oxygen Bleach. I think these before and after photos of my husbands athletic socks speak for themselves. The socks are white...they are not blindingly white, but they weren't bleached with chemicals and that's probably best for the life of the fabric, our skin and the environment.
