5 Laundry Hacks for a Non-Toxic Home
1: Do use an all natural non-toxic laundry detergent
Our non-toxic, natural and environmentally friendly laundry detergent cleans your clothes and removes stains without the harsh chemicals that can irritate your skin, or worse, make you sick. Just think about it...everything you wear, bathe with and sleep on gets washed with laundry detergent. That means your skin, your largest organ is exposed to whatever your clothes, sheets and towels are exposed to constantly, so switching to a non-toxic detergent is one little thing you can do that will make a big difference in the health of your home.

Love a fragrance? Just because you want an all natural non-toxic laundry detergent you don't have go fragrance free. At Berkley Green, we source only the best non-toxic fragrances, carefully testing each one for many months before bringing it to market.
2: Prevent static cling
This might come as a surprise, but if you use Berkley Green laundry detergent, you are already taking a step towards preventing static cling because our laundry detergent is formulated to help prevent it.
3: Pre-treat your stains
While our laundry detergent is super effective at removing stains, we always recommend pre-treating stains for best results. Spray the fabric with our stain remover and let sit for 30 minute before washing or if you don't have a stain remover available, pre-spot with a small amount of laundry detergent.
4: Run a shorter wash cycle
Kids pajamas that aren't stained but just slept in? New clothes that you want to wash before wearing? Or anything that is not really dirty? Trying using a shorter wash cycle and less laundry detergent! It will help cut down on your water waste and save you precious time!
5: Do throw in the towel!
Do you ever find that your clothes take forever to dry? It might sound like an old wives tale, but throwing in a clean dry bath towel can help cut your drying time in half.
