Dishwashing liquid can be a source of toxins, but opting for an organic dishwashing liquid can be beneficial for your body and the environment. When detoxing their home and life, the first thing many people think about adjusting is the food they eat. That’s an excellent start but it’s only part of the equation. It’s also necessary to re-evaluate everyday, household items such as hygiene and personal care products, cookware, and cleaning supplies. Especially the liquid you use to wash dishes.

Why Should You Buy Organic Dishwashing Liquid?

Your skin is semi-permeable and can be an entry point for toxins. If you’re using a toxic dish soap and are immersing your hands in it, sometimes several times a day, you could be leaving yourself vulnerable to health problems.

Toxins found in non-organic dishwashing liquid include synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde, silicone, acrylate, preservatives, genetically modified organisms, and even foaming and coloring agents, just to name a few. Such chemicals are not necessary for clean dishes and they’re certainly not good for your health or your skin, as some can cause immediate allergic reactions. [1] Wearing gloves might seem like an easy solution but these chemicals are still toxic to the environment and don’t really “go away” when they go down the drain.

Choosing the Right Organic Dishwashing Liquid

When selecting dishwashing liquid, read the label and make sure you’re getting something that’s organically certified. This lets you know you’re purchasing a truly organic product. Taking the time to look for organic dishwashing liquid is the healthier choice for you, your family, and the environment.

Tips for Buying Organic Dishwashing Liquid

Look for products that contain ingredients that are plant-based, as opposed to petroleum-based. Most organic dishwashing liquid contains ingredients like coconut oil or olive oil. Conversely, toxic dish soap contains synthetic chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate and diethanolamine, which are harmful. [2] Also, look for products that are free of foam builders, fragrances, colorants, stabilizers, and preservatives. Check the label for verbiage such as “warning”, “caution”, or “danger” — a clear indication it’s not completely safe.

There are a number of organic dishwashing liquids available so it should be fairly easy to find one you love! Just make sure to find one that is completely natural and non-toxic. Do you have another suggestion? Leave a comment below and let us know what you’re using.
