Also, as we all know, the elements present in fabric softeners and perfumes are mostly toxic in a nice package.
Soaps are basically the mixture of a fat with something very alkaline, this generates a bipolar substance, let's call it, which likes water almost as much as it repels it, and this is what makes it remove dirt from clothes, the The problem is that the alkaline part hardens the water and therefore our clothes.
To avoid this, we only have to neutralize the alkaline effect with vinegar (vinegar is a mild acid, it has approximately 5% acetic acid), we can use white alcohol vinegar that is colorless, apple cider vinegar or, failing that, white wine, to use it We just have to place it where one usually puts the fabric softener with a 1/4 cup of vinegar per load is more than enough.
The clothes are soft and with a slight vinegar smell that goes away once the clothes dry, those who do not like the smell can add a few drops of essential oil, the one they like the most lavender, mint, etc. until the smell of the vinegar is neutralized.
Other benefits of vinegar in the washing machine are that it will prevent fungus from forming on the rubber of the door, and will keep the filters and internal parts of our washing machine cleaner.
There is the aforementioned, cheaper, healthier and better for the washing machine, but if you like to continue using toxins in beautiful packaging, go ahead and not complain about polluted rivers and other things.
