  1. Thank you so much for your research. I would like to know if you have done any research on Doterra laundry soap. They have a few and I am interested in the On- Guard line. Also, has there been any research on which detergent gets the clothes the cleanest? Safest and best for stain removal etc. I love all the safe products but my husband doesn’ think they clean his clothes. Is there some research I can share with him?

  2. What are your thoughts on Mama Suds Laundry Detergent as I don’t see it listed. I have used it for well over a year and I love it. I don’t see any ingredients for concern as I am an avid label reader.

    1. Hi Brittany! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels For You! If you will, please send us the information and scientific data you have found that make you think this ingredient is of concern, so we review the info and update our post, if necessary. We appreciate your interest!!

  3. Hi Maria,

    Thank you for all the work that you do. I have purchased many of your guides. I was wondering if you reviewed Better Life Laundry Detergent, Lavender Grapefruit in this guide? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Callie,

      Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels For You!
      While Better Life per se is not included in this review, you could, if you would, figure out its safety by reading the ingredients on its label and comparing them with the ingredients of concern assembled in the ‘Ingredients You Want to Be Careful About in Your Non-Toxic Laundry Detergent’ section of this blog post. Or, email the ingredients to us for a private email product review.

  5. I’ve been using Ecos Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent with Enzymes – Free & Clear as it does not have Methylisothiazolinone as a listed preservative. Perhaps it’s a reformulation such as with the dish soap?

    1. Hi, Christen! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! You are doing a great job reading ingredients and picking products based on safety – thank you for that! As for the ECOS products, in our blog post we mention ECOS Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent – Free & Clear. As of today (May 23, 2022), ECOS website lists Methylisothiazolinone among its ingredients. At the same time, ECOS Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent with Enzymes – Free & Clear does not list Methylisothiazolinone. These are two different products (the former is without enzymes and the latter is with enzymes). We hope this helps!

  6. Hello! Why are Dr Bronner’s products rarely included in your wonderful research? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi, Marian! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! If you are talking about Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds, it is fine!

  7. When you say which if the cleanest are your favorites (then post a coupon code) I’m concerned about possible conflict of interest. I ask this genuinely, as I’ve followed for some time and trust your research. But a little nagging voice on the back wants to know. Thank you.

    1. Hi, Lari! Thank you for reaching out to I Read Labels for You! Your question is totally legitimate!
      I Read Labels for You receives lots of offers for affiliate connections with attractive commissions (as happened with Monat, for example).
      However, our priority is safety, and we stay true to our core values: integrity, honesty, and thoroughness. So, we study ingredients, do research, and contact the manufacturers. (You can learn more about the steps we take on our website.)If a product meets our standards for safety, we accept the company’s offer for affiliate connection. Other times, we reach out to the company ourselves to participate with them in spreading safe products. Moreover, some companies do not have affiliate programs, but if their products meet our safety requirements, we choose to promote them anyway to make the consumer market a safer place. And sometimes, companies would change their ingredients from safe to less safe, and we break our affiliation with them. As for discount codes, we are happy to help our readers and followers to save money!
      At the same time, our intention has never been to make our followers believe us blindly. It is for this reason that we keep writing and publishing free educational blog posts so that our readers would read them and educate themselves about ingredients and learn to estimate their safety on their own. Plus, we always encourage our readers to contact manufacturers and do their own research regarding the safety of the product in question.
      Therefore, it is great that the question about the conflict of interest has risen in you, Lari! It shows that you are a thinker and do not “eat” any information blindly. We believe that you will be successful at doing your own research and contacting companies, which we strongly encourage because the more of us ask questions, the sooner the manufacturers make changes for the better. 
      If and when your product ingredient research contradicts ours, please bring it to our attention – we are open for communication and changes. We are all in it together and we will definitely appreciate your help!! Thank you for your active participation!!!

  8. Have you ever done research on THE LAUNDRESS
    NEW YORK? I don’t see it listed anywhere in the search option or in any of your free articles. They list their MDSD online. From following your blog I know your anti-fragrance but I’m wondering your thoughts. Thanks!

    1. Hi, Elisabeth! Thank you for your question! A quick glance at this product’s list of ingredients revealed that it contains fragrance, benzisothiazolinone, and ethoxylated ingredients (e.g., sodium laureth sulfate). I Read Labels for You does not consider these ingredients safe. We hope this helps!

  9. Have you done any research on dryer sheets/balls? I couldn’t find any articles on it when I put dryer in she search button. I’ve tried using 100% wool dryer balls and even putting all 6 balls in the dryer on the lowest temp my clothes come out still staticky. Thanks!

    1. Hi, Elisabeth! We appreciate your interest! We haven’t done deep research into dryer sheets, but so far, we haven’t found safe dryer sheets. Thank you for the suggestion!

    2. Place your clean clothes on the ground for an hour or so. Fold them and stack them on the ground. When you put them away, most of the static will b gone.
