Laundry Detergent Fillers 
Fillers are chemicals added to laundry detergent to be used as a binding agent for water and add bulk to the box or bottle of detergent, therefore making you THINK you are getting a better deal at the grocery store. Fillers can account for up to 45% of your laundry detergent. BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER!

A few common fillers in your laundry detergent are:
  • 1,4 DIOXANE – a synthetic oil-based carcinogen
  • GLUTEN – wheat and other grains are used to thicken and extend products
  • ALCOHOL – decreases the detergents freezing point and increases solubility
  • LIMESTONE & CHALK – calcium-based to work with phosphates to increase suds
  • PERFUME & COLOR – covers the smell of chemicals and makes it look “pretty” 

  • Fillers are ground down into a very fine sand-like consistency.
  • They get stuck in your clothes and “grind” together (with washing and wear) therefore lessening the life of your clothes and making them look faded.
  • After just 10 washes, clothes, towels and blankets gain 2% of their weight in detergent residue (fillers and chemicals) and are constantly being absorbed by the skin.
