    • Ethanol: On the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders

    If you want to avoid ethanol there are a lot more common sources than your fabric softener. This is also (IMHO) proof that the EPA list doesn't mean much.



    Can using Dihydrogen Monoxide improve my sex life?

    This is a popular myth, but one which is also actually supported by a number of scientific facts. Dihydrogen Monoxide plays an instrumental role in the centers of the brain associated with increased libido and orgasm. So, much as with endurance athletes, moderate intake of DHMO prior to engaging in sexual activity may enhance performance, although the same caveats apply.

    Apparently you have not tried using this product and therefore are always in such a nasty foul mood....your loss of libido is really showing!!!

    Please go online and your order can be over-nighted!!!

    I'm sorry, I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble here but have you taken a look at the source of this information? The web is a very big place with a lot of scare tactics. The key is to determine if the source is unbiased and can verify their claims with peer-reviewed scientific studies. Among the site's goals is to sell you alternatives to fabric softener. And show me were any of this is backed up with legitimate research.

    Traces of this are in womens nail polisher remover

    SWALKER is what the article said you could use instead of fabric softener:

    • Add a quarter cup of baking soda to wash cycle to soften fabric

    • Add a quarter cup of white vinegar to rinse to soften fabric and eliminate cling

    Check out your local health food store for a natural fabric softener that uses a natural base like soy instead of chemicals

    For someone that has allergies this information could be very useful. I can't tolerate perfumes and many scented products. I just wanted to pass this information along to those people that might benefit by it. As I say in most of my environmental're free to choose...
