Are you using a liquid laundry detergent that was purchased at the store? Almost all types of detergent used for laundry contain various additives and harmful chemicals. Something you might want to do is use a healthier product like a DIY liquid laundry detergent,

Making a DIY liquid laundry detergent is actually really easy to do. Believe it or not, you need to have a 5-gallon bucket for the recipe you will use. Water will fill most of the bucket, before adding all of the necessary ingredients. The most important ingredient you will need to have is a Fels-Naptha soap bar.

One thing to keep in mind about a DIY liquid laundry detergent, it is mainly for use in regular washing machines. A high efficiency unit may not be able to use a homemade detergent. The best thing to do is to use less than what might be required for a regular washing machine to see how it works.
