What To Do If You, Your Child Or Another Family Member Is Poisoned By Laundry Detergent
Source: The New York Times
Petrochemicals like laundry detergents can be highly toxic and dangerous in the home. Make sure all detergents are kept out of the reach of children. Consuming them can be severely hazardous to their health.
Detergents may contain strong alkalis, phosphates or damaging (corrosive) acids, including benzalkonium chloride. Swallowing such poisons can have severe effects on many parts of the body. Some symptoms include severe pain, vomiting blood, heart collapse, breathing difficulty and burns or holes in the skin and underlying tissue. Swallowing these poisons can have severe effects on many parts of the body. The prognosis depends on the extent of damage done by the poison. Damage continues to occur to the esophagus and stomach for several weeks after the poison was swallowed. The faster you get medical help, the better the chance for recovery.
The Toxicity of Laundry Detergents
Laundry detergent contains up to eight poisonous chemicals which erode our immune system – some of which are the following:
- Chlorine Bleach (Sodium Hypochlorite)
- Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)
- Nitrilotriacetic Acid (NTA) & other NTA’s
It takes three washes with a nontoxic detergent to remove the toxins put in from store-brand’s toxic detergents. If you do not have a nontoxic detergent, it takes 16 rinses to remove most of the poisons. How can people hope to escape when they sleep between sheets which have been dipped in eight toxic chemicals and then wear clothes all day which have also been dipped in eight toxic chemicals?
Many areas of the US are requiring laundry detergents to be low-phosphate. As a result, manufacturers replaced phosphates with caustics which are 100 times more caustic than phosphate detergents. Examples are:
- Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)
- Potassium Hypochlorite
These caustics clean by a chemical reaction that burns or eats away other substances which wear out clothes faster and dull the fabric’s colors.

Since 1950, over 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented and dispersed into our environment with only a fraction of these tested for human safety. What a horror to think that this overwhelming flood of chemicals is abusing our children and their children by using them as experimental “guinea pigs” in this massive clinical toxic trial which sweeps our country.
