We all want spotless laundry, but caution should be used when choosing laundry products. Some spot removers contain dangerous petroleum distillates or bleach. The National Capital Poison Center reviews some of the possible dangers found in laundry products.
PreSpot contains plant based cleaning agents along with three enzymes: Protease targets protein stains, amylase targets starch stains, and lipase works on greasy stains. It also contains T36-C5 Melaleuca oil. You can read more about PreSpot at the Safer For Your Home website.
A stroke occurs when blood flow is interrupted to the brain either by a clot or by a blood vessel that bursts. It is a "brain attack." The brain damage caused by a stroke can rob us of our vitality and independence. ABC News reports that "silent" strokes affect 11 million Americans each year, and by the time people reach their 70s, one in three has a silent stoke every year.
Science Daily informs us that "silent" strokes are common in people over 60, especially in those with high blood pressure. Even though this type of stroke may occur without dramatic symptoms, they have been linked to memory, thinking problems, and a form of dementia.
Gingivitis affects over 90% of the population. Since pain is usually not a symptom, red swollen gums that bleed along with possible bad breath may not be recognized as anything out of the ordinary. Gum disease can lead not only to loose teeth, but also oral bacteria entering into the bloodstream can cause health conditions seemingly unrelated to oral health. Science Daily reports that the cause of failed hip and knee replacements can be traced to gum disease bacteria.
Health connections have also been made between advanced gum disease and cancer risks.
We enjoy laundry that smells clean and feels soft. Unfortunately not all laundry products are made from safe ingredients. A University of Washington researcher found that scented laundry products emit hazardous chemicals. Researchers examined the air vented from dryer vents and found 25 volatile organic compounds, including seven hazardous air pollutants. It is no wonder we look for alternative products to use in our laundry.
MelaSoft uses natural essential oils and biodegradable plant-based softening agents, and is the first fabric softener to use fragrance capsules without formaldehyde! MelaSoft is available in dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener. Each is available in two fragrances. Did you know that the Clean Cotton scent uses tangerine, clove, and patchouli essential oils? And Spring Breeze uses chamomile, geranium, and cedar wood? With long-lasting scent encapsulation technology, clothes laundered with MelaSoft continue to smell naturally clean and fresh for days after being washed.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency tells us that the air within our homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than outdoor air, even polluted city air! The young, elderly and those chronically ill are often the most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution.
No other product is like Sol-U-Mel. It does not contain caustic chemicals or produce toxic fumes, but instead contains the highest concentration of tea tree oil in any cleaner available. Normally oil and water do not mix, but this amazing formula is water soluble, hence the "Sol-U" in Sol-U-Mel. It retains the properties that make tea tree oil so powerful: antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal. It also has solvent properties that help penetrate and dissolve stains and dirt.
