Clean Clothes, Dirty Air?
I’ve had many clients ask me what they can do about their smelly washer. Or they tell me their laundry smells bad after washing. Obviously, a laundry smell should be expected before washing clothes, not after. When a washer smells like mold or laundry smells sour, the cause is always due to the growth of bacteria and mold, both of which contribute to poor indoor air quality. The man-made chemicals and fragrances used in laundry detergent tend only to mask odors, not eliminate them.
Green detergents can cause a smelly washer
Laundry detergent, including Green laundry products, also contaminate indoor air. Not to mention the environmental impact of introducing these chemicals into the earth’s water system. Some plant-based detergents, Green laundry detergents, in particular, have nutrients in them that can contribute to a smelly washer. Most detergents are also expensive and can cause washing machines to prematurely break down.
Laundry detergent never fully rinses out of clothing and bedding. Contacting or inhaling the residual particles contributes to skin rashes, skin allergies, headaches, migraines, chronic fatigue, allergy symptoms, chemical sensitivity, fragrance sensitivity, and asthma symptoms.
What you’ll learn
This book will teach you how to permanently avoid a smelly washer, washing machine mold, and a mildew smell in clothes. If you already have a washer odor problem, you’ll learn how to remove odor from washing machine interiors to prevent your clothes and bedding from developing laundry odor. This book will literally teach you all the problems and all of the solutions.
Clothes dryers exhaust approximately 9,000 cubic feet of air out of a home each time they are operated. This results in negative indoor air pressure that can cause hidden mold to grow in other areas around a home. Negative air pressure can also introduce poisonous carbon monoxide gas into indoor air from other appliances such as water heaters and furnaces. Clothes dryers can also contribute to indoor humidity that can result in mold growth in other areas around homes. You’ll learn how to identify and resolve these problems as well.
Lastly, this book will also teach you how you can wash and fully sanitize your clothes and bedding without laundry detergent. This is a great option for those wanting to save money, and make their washing machine last longer, prevent pollution, and maintain color and fiber quality in clothing.
