We're not even talking about how our clothes are made in the first place -- just the routine of washing, softening, drying, and cleaning adds so many unnecessary chemicals and unnatural products to our daily lives, it's crazy. But we -- and the natural moms of Pinterest, bless them -- think that all these chemicals can be easily replaced with natural alternatives that the laundry industry doesn't want to tell us about.
