Because laundry is often part of daily cleaning routines, some people assume it leaves no detrimental byproducts. The truth is that even a well-functioning washer and dryer are vulnerable to product and mildew build-up that can reduce their effectiveness. That’s part of why we use fabric softeners and deodorizers; they counter the smell and harshness clothes may pick up from within the dryer. Though they make our clothes feel and smell better, not all deodorizers are ideal. Some have toxic ingredients that can cause health problems and negatively impact the environment while only masking odors temporarily. Here are 5 reasons it’s time to choose non-toxic laundry deodorizers for your clothes:

1. Better for Your Health?

Toxic laundry deodorizers contain chemicals such as phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors. They can disrupt hormones and cause reproductive problems. Toxic deodorizers can also contain benzene, which is a known carcinogen. Benzene is also found in gasoline and tobacco smoke, and long-term exposure to it can cause leukemia and other cancers.

Non-toxic deodorizers like the EnviroKlenz Laundry Enhancer are made from safe, mineral-based ingredients, such as aluminum, zinc, and magnesium oxide. This deodorizer is designed with the safety of you and your family in mind, using no chemicals or fragrances that can be harmful to sensitive skin and overall health. 

    2. Environment-Friendly

    Some deodorizers contain chemicals that can harm the environment. Non-biodegradable ingredients and water contaminants that harm aquatic life are sadly common in many deodorizers used in the laundry room. 

    Deodorizers with toxic ingredients also contribute to air pollution, as these ingredients release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into homes and the atmosphere. Non-toxic deodorizers are environmentally friendly in addition to being family-friendly. Their use of natural ingredients makes them more biodegradable, safer for septic systems, and the absence of chemicals eliminates the potential for VOCs.


      3. Cost-Effective

      Toxic deodorizers may seem cheaper than non-toxic ones, but they can have surprising hidden costs. The chemicals in those deodorizers can cause damage to your clothes, which can lead to early wear and tear. That may mean spending more money on replacing your clothes, and doing so more frequently than you would like to. 

      Toxic deodorizers can also cause product residue buildup that leads to washing machine malfunctions or breakdowns, which can be expensive to repair. By using basic, natural ingredients, non-toxic laundry deodorizers are much gentler on your clothes and washing machines over time. This sustainable, low-impact approach may help you save money in the long run.

      4. Better Smelling Clothes

      Non-toxic laundry deodorizers are made to leave your clothes smelling fresh and clean without artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances may give off a strong initial scent before ultimately fading. EnviroKlenz’s non-toxic deodorizers produce odor-free laundry by eliminating odor-causing chemicals and fragrances left behind on fabrics, so your clothes stay smelling nice. After all, a true ‘clean’ has no odor. 

      5. Suitable for Sensitive Skin

      Toxic deodorizers can cause skin irritation and allergies, especially to those with sensitive skin. Synthetic fragrances, dyes, and other additives are all capable of triggering skin reactions, even in people without allergies. EnviroKlenz’s non-toxic laundry deodorizer eliminates this risk by forgoing chemical irritants, and rather promoting soft, comfortable laundry suitable even for sensitive skin.
