Do your clothes, towels, and sheets smell like must and mildew no matter how many times you run them through the wash? Are scented detergents and fabric softeners (full of toxins) barely masking the smell? Mold may be the cause of these undesirable scents on your favorite fabrics. Even worse, you’re likely inhaling the mold and supporting colony growth inside your sinus cavities; and from there the mold will continue to spread throughout your body, wreaking havoc on cells, DNA, and even your pituitary gland. EC3 Laundry Additive is the perfect addition to every load of laundry. Get mold out of fabrics, linens, and your washing machine with a few simple pours.
Mold, Your Health, And Your Fabrics
Even if the smell doesn’t bother you, the impact mold can have on your health should. Brain fog, dizziness, abdominal pains, lethargy, respiratory issues, and hormonal imbalance are some of the many ailments mold can cause.
Mold thrives off of moist conditions, so most likely the mold on your fabrics didn’t get there randomly. Here are some common causes for mold on fabrics:
- Washing your fabrics and storing them for the season without letting them fully dry
- Your washer harboring spores and contaminating everything that goes inside
- Leaving clothes wet for a long period of time
- Leaving clothes wet for over a day after being washed (e.g. leaving them in the washer overnight)
- Machine dryers that aren’t vented outside of the house can release a large amount of moisture into your home if the drier is not vented outside the house
- Clothes drying inside on indoor clotheslines or racks can create a build-up of moisture unless the room is well ventilated
- Night sweats and dead skin cells on linens and pillowcases
We tend to think soap and hot water can work wonders, but that combination only worked well in the past because bacteria and fungi were limited in their behavior. Over time, bacteria, fungi, and viruses evolve and learn to adapt to the methods we use to destroy them. Even bleach has a limited effect on mold; it may remove mold on the surface, but bleach is not made to soak in. This means that mold can easily hide in the layers of fabric and outlast any contact from bleach. Affected clothing requires deep cleaning to remove spores and get rid of mold once and for all.
Wash Away Bacteria And Mold Spores; Remove Musty And Putrid Smells
EC3 Laundry Additive rinses away bacteria and mold spores that get trapped in your fabrics because it soaks into fabrics during the wash. Additionally, EC3 Laundry Additive removes musty and unwanted smells from washable textiles including bed linens and pillowcases. You can also remove mold from towels and sweaty gym clothes, which are notorious for musty and mildew smells. People often use fabric softener to eliminate odors, but this only masks mold a pleasant scent. Without the removal of mold, you’re steadily inhaling mold every night for hours and throughout the day from your clothing.
Maintain A Mold-Free Washing Machine
By adding EC3 Laundry Additive into your washing machine you also create a mold-free environment for cleaning. Most home washers are High-Efficiency front-load machines, and although they are great for conserving water, they create the perfect environment for harboring mold and moisture.
Get rid of unpleasant scents, enjoy a non-toxic nights rest, and remove mold from your clothes and home with EC3’s Laundry Additive.
