    I don't clean with any chemicals anymore because of the toxicity. I go to a healthfood store and buy all of my shampoos'; lotions, bath soap, and cleaning chemicals.

    I'm sure that you could find that stuff online less expensive but when you pay for the shipping to get it to you then it's all about the same.

    I have been trying very hard to detox myself for about 3 months now and am starting to feel better. I think for us with this DD, our immune systems are not as strong as other people's so we have to step up the healing process with eliminating some of the things that we know are not healty; ie; bleach.

    I found a product at "Wild Oats" Market that takes the soap scum right off of my shower and it's all natural; so you might just try some other stuff for cleaning and laundry until you find something that works for you.

    Good luck,
