5 Best Natural Laundry Detergents: Mother Earth Living Editor’s Picks

| 2/24/2012 3:19:00 PM

Mother Earth Living Editors' Pick logoConventional laundry detergents may leave our clothes smelling fresh, but most contain enough toxic chemicals to make an entire household sick. Optical brighteners, synthetic fragrances, chlorine, distillates and other harsh chemicals can all linger in clothes after washing, causing everything from irritation of the eyes, mouth and skin to reproductive effects and cancer development. Manufacturers aren’t required to list ingredients on laundry products, and few ingredients used in detergents have even been tested for safety.

Instead of dousing your clothes in a chemical bath next time you do laundry, try one of these five natural laundry detergents, all safe to use in both HE and standard washers, and all tested by Mother Earth Living editors. Free of toxic chemicals, these laundry detergents will leave your clothes naturally clean and fragrant.

Method Ultra-Concentrated Laundry Detergent

Method’s ultra-concentrated laundry detergent brings new meaning to the phrase “good things come in small packages.” Just 20 fluid ounces of the company’s super-concentrated, Cradle-to-Cradle certified formula is good for 50 loads. The pump top means you can easily dispense the required amount without any drips or spills (and did we mention that it’s kind of fun to use, too?). And thanks to Method’s handy refill pouches, you can keep using that little bottle over and over, cutting back on the amount of waste laundry day generates.

Cost: $15 for 20-ounce bottle (50 loads); $20 for 32-ounce refill pack
