Wear Protective Gloves To Do Laundry!

What laundry detergent do you use? Is it safe? I used to use Tide. I don't anymore. I didn't want to provide the opportunity for it to harm my children. Am I being crazy? See for yourself. Try holding a handful of the stuff in your hand and see how long you can hold on before it starts to burn. Do you really want this touching your kids skin?

here is what I found out: It's warnings are as follows: Keep out of reach of children. Product is an irritant, avoid contact with the eyes and wear protective gloves (rubber, neoprene) for prolonged direct contact. May be harmful if swallowed. Store in a dry location to avoid dispensing problems.

How much is prolonged exposue? If you do laundry every week over time is this prolonged exposure? Should you be wearing protective gloves to do your laundry?

It's Acute health effects: Inhalation: Heavy or prolonged exposure to product dust may cause transient respiratory tract irritation resulting in coughing, sore throat, wheezing or transitory shortness of breath. Skin Contact: Prolonged or frequent contact may result in skin irritation. Eye Contact: May cause mild transient irritation resulting in stinging, tearing, itching, swelling, and redness of the eyes. Ingestion: May cause transient gastrointestinal irritation resulting in nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

You can check warnings at this government site.

If you'd like advice on safer products, don't hesitate to contact me.
