I have had my washer for six years, all six of those years I used one detergent, because you don't mess with a good thing.
Or so I thought.
I was doing some light cleaning in the laundry room and wiped down the front of my washer. I knew the soap was dripping, I normally kept it clean but the last week I didn't get to it, busy happens. So I was quite shocked to find under a thin layer of detergent build up...
The paint on the front of my washer is peeled off. Gone. Because the detergent was on it.
I am shocked at the damage laundry detergent can do to a hard painted metal surface. Imagine what it is doing to our clothing... and our skin! All Free & Clear, one of the most recommended detergents for sensitive skin, managed to peel paint? I need to explore options for milder more natural laundry soap that won't cost a fortune, we do two or three loads of laundry a day and I can't afford to pay double for a natural detergent.
What laundry detergent do you use? Where do you buy it? What do you recommend trying?
I want to continue to do this with no worries...
