Keep away from children: Poison that we all enjoy and use

We cannot deny that we’ve used fabric softeners even just once in our life. We are attracted to what it sells – fabric softener ads give the sense of illusion of comfort, sweetness and freshness.

Although, we have been caught, line and sinker for buying and using it – we are most probably dismissing the facts that these products contain numerous toxins and chemicals, which can enter the body through the skin and by inhalation that can lead to a long list of health problems, especially young children are more prone to acquiring diseases.

The fabric softeners are dosed with chemicals and a hefty dose of fragrance that are hard to remove and cling to every surface of fabric or piece of clothing; the scent stays on for a long period of time, too.

This is known as “fragrance substantivity,” which describes how a long a fragrance lasts on a particular surface and how it is affected by temperature, humidity and other conditions.

These are the most common toxic chemicals, found in all fabric softeners:

Alpha Terpineol – this is a toxic chemical, which can cause many health problems, such as; dizziness, headaches, hunger, memory loss, numbness in face, pain in neck and spine.

Benzyl Acetate – is a toxic substance that has been linked to pancreatic cancer. Its vapors can be irritating for the eyes and respiratory passages and it can also be absorbed through the skin

Chloroform – is a powerful carcinogenic neurotoxin and it may cause many health problems, such as loss of consciousness, nausea, headache, vomiting, and/or dizziness, drowsiness

Linalool – is a narcotic, known to cause respiratory problems and it causes the so-called loss of muscle coordination
