Oh My Goodness! According to an article I just read on New York Times, Tide could possibly cause Cancer!
I use Tide! I bet you do too! This is shocking to me because Tide is a household name that I have trusted for years! **cries**
The controversy is all about levels of 1,4 dioxane (read about the chemical from the EPA here).
It seems the Tide Free & Gentle product, which has been promoted by Proctor & Gamble as a “healthy” detergent which is ideal for newborns and babies, does contain problematic levels of 1,4 dioxane!
======>>Read the full article found here on The Huffington Post (my favorite blog for News!).
According to P&G authorities, they are stating that the “4,1-Dioxane” levels are well below the risk factor… What do you think? Are you going to put it on hold until we find out more?
I don’t know about you but I find it very hard to “trust” any brands now-a-days and my guards are up! What about you? I would LOVE to hear your comments on this matter! Please comment below!
=======>>>>>STAY TUNED because I have made it MY MISSION this week to come up with a safe and “homemade” laundry detergent!
(this may be a bit of a challenge for me because I use a High Efficiency Laundry Machine) :-/
