Clothes


Healthy alternatives

Clothing made of untreated cotton and natural fibres (linen, viscose, hemp...)

Favour garments made of organic fabrics to ensure a chemical-free finish.

DIY

To reduce potential chemicals in clothing, wash or soak the garment in water with 1 cup of white vinegar OR 1 cup of salt OR 1/2 cup of baking soda.


Materials to avoid

  • Formaldéhyde: cancérogène, irritant pour les yeux et les voies respiratoires, sensibilisant respiratoire
  • Plastiques (polyester, nylon, acrylique, spandex)
  • Produits chimiques ignifuges (retardateurs de feu)
  • Teintures

Also avoid washing clothes with scented products (detergents, fabric softeners) which can be harmful.
