Toxic Fabrics. Most people are aware of toxic or harmful chemicals in food they buy for their families.
However, relatively few people are aware of the potential danger of toxic chemicals in their fabrics/clothing.
The increasing demand of customers for fabrics and clothes that are anti-static, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial plus with everyone in a rush the demand for iron-free fabrics with the most vibrant colours is only possible by fabric manufacturers using chemicals.
Some of these chemicals are harmless like the Alum used in mordants (colour-fixatives) but many are extremely toxic like chrome and formaldehyde.
If you or anyone in your family from toddlers to grand parents are in any way sensitive to chemicals then you should exercise extreme caution when shopping for fabrics and clothes.
There is an increasing amount of chemicals being used these days in order to satisfy the urgent demands of customers worldwide.
BUT there is a simple solution – purchase natural fibers that have had no chemicals added anywhere in their processes.
They may be a little more expensive but they will be far safer, more durable and give you peace of mind.
