Rethinking Laundry: The Hidden Dangers of Conventional Pods.

Laundry day – a ritual we all partake in, but are we aware of the hidden dangers lurking in our laundry rooms? Conventional laundry pods, touted for their convenience, may be causing more harm than we realise. Today, let's unravel the downsides of these compact capsules and explore a cleaner, greener alternatives.

The Dark Side of Convenience: Conventional Laundry Pods

Environmental Impact:

While laundry pods promise an easy, mess-free solution, they come packaged in layers of plastic that contribute to our planet's growing waste problem. Single-use plastics from discarded pods can take years to break down, lingering in landfills and water bodies.

Chemical Concerns:

Conventional laundry pods often contain a cocktail of chemicals, including synthetic fragrances and brighteners. These additives can irritate the skin and release harmful fumes during the washing process. The residue left on clothes may trigger allergies and skin sensitivities.

Dosage Issues

When using laundry pods it's impossible to measure just enough liquid for your load as it's limited to the amount sealed in the pod. Using too much detergent leaves a residue that can create an invisible layer of film, trapping dirt and hard water minerals, giving clothes a crunchy texture and faded appearance. This means, one pod could be too much or too little for a load and using 2 pods could be massively overusing the liquid.
