There's really no taking a break from household chores! But what's more cruel than that tedious feeling of constantly having to do laundry is that so many products still contain animal by-products. Or they are owned by large parent companies that continue to test on animals. If you feel powerless to do anything about this, you should know there is now a slew of great alternative brands and products that work just as effectively to clean, refresh, rinse, and remove stains and smells. With purer and more organic ingredients (i.e. fewer chemicals) to seep into our water systems on top of everything else, you can also feel good about the environmental benefits.
