Why You NEED An Eco-Friendly Odor Eliminator
Did you know that our laundry room can harbor some of the most hazardous chemicals in our home?
Living a truly healthy and eco-friendly lifestyle is no easy feat. Every day we are exposed to a plethora of chemicals in our environment, and most of the time we are completely unaware of these potential hazards. Even our home could be a major source of toxicity — with the “cleanest” rooms, like the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry being among the core offending areas!
Benefits of Using Eco-Detergent
To ease the anxiety and physical stress produced in a toxic environment, first, get to know the surroundings. Laundry detergent and other laundry products, for example, contain a variety of pollutants and artificial preservatives. The chemicals usually present in these detergents include Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)/ Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES); 1,4-Dioxane; NPE (nonylphenol ethoxylate), and phosphates. The amalgam of these chemicals can be potentially damaging, and in some instances can cause skin irritation and other allergic reactions for humans and pets. Studies have even linked cancer and reproductive disorders to the release of certain toxins found in common detergents.
Outdoors, 39 percent of a garment’s environmental impact comes from consumer care like doing the laundry. According to the Business for Social Responsibility, laundry products have the potential to contaminate our waterways, as they are carried around the earth and become deposited on a wide range of surfaces that eventually lead into our rivers and lakes.
A Softener for Your Wallet
But let’s be real, nobody wants to wear smelly, faded clothing. Similar to the way an eco-friendly detergent has a softer environmental impact inside and outside the home, it also increases the life of the fabrics themselves. Many of the eco-friendly options eliminate the long-term costs of having to replace our favorite, worn-out clothing; and of having to add fabric softener — even more chemicals — to the cycle. Fabric softeners are designed to stay on our clothing for an extended amount of time, and gradually become inhaled or absorbed through the skin as exposure increases. This laundry product also contains a hazardous chemical called “Quats,” that can be a leading indoor air pollutant in homes. That comforting fragrance may not be so comforting to our health.
A Healthy Solution
Eco-friendly laundry detergents, therefore, are a good, financial and environmental alternative to keep clothes smelling and looking fresh. There is one in particular that has the science to remove deep, long-lasting odors while still protecting the fabric. OdorKlenz Laundry Additive, unlike other eco-detergents, utilizes a patented earth mineral technology that works at breaking down and completely neutralizing both a broad spectrum of noxious odors and chemicals from clothing. After using OdorKlenz, the smell or odor will be removed from the entire piece of fabric, not just the surface – and without the use of masking agents to simply hide the smell. If you live in an apartment or home where the washing machine has previously been used with hazardous chemicals, using OdorKlenz in the wash cycle can aid in effectively deodorizing the washer of past odors and fragrances trapped in the machine.
The OdorKlenz technology is even so effective that it was originally procured for the U.S. Department of Defense for chemical decontamination and has been tested by some of the top labs in the world including Battelle, and the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center for non-medical chemical and biological defense.
“As a Bikram Yoga teacher, I have lots of sweaty yoga clothes at the end of each day. I had several items of clothes that I thought were headed for the trash because I could not get the odor out,” said one OdorKlenz customer, Terri A. “I was thrilled when all the clothes came out of the wash odor free.”
OdorKlenz Sport is a line specifically focused on athletes — including yogis. Yoga can do a lot for the human body and eliciting the production of sweat and foul odors is an unfortunate result. The specialty Sport Laundry Additive effectively neutralizes the sweat that seeps into workout apparel, and better yet the odors left on the yoga mat!
The Other — Sometimes Unidentifiable — Smells in the Home
Odor elimination, however, is not simply about doing the laundry and taking out the trash/compost. It’s also about clearing the air and tending to those spaces our pets love. OdorKlenz-Air products like their popular Mobile Air System, purifies the home of particulates like pet dander, allergens, dirt, hair, and dust, while also capturing and/or neutralizing smells from cooking (burned dinner, anyone?), fumes, VOCs, and general everyday nuisance [body] odors. Their pet-specific line includes the Pet Urine Eliminator, Pet Litter Additive, Skunk Odor Eliminator, and Pet Shampoo.
“I suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and it has worsened over the last year,” said another customer, T. Booth. “I found OdorKlenz through Debra Lynn Dadd [the World Leading Expert on Toxic-Free Products] and began to research their mobile exchange unit. I have now had the unit for over 6 months and it has been a true lifesaver. I no longer worry about odors or fragrances from adjacent apartments in my building and I can now sleep safe and sound.”
