GMOs and pesticides. It seems like they’re everywhere, right? Unfortunately, they’re even hiding in our clothes, linens, towels and more now. So how can we avoid GMO cotton and the associated pesticides? What materials should we choose?
I got to thinking about all of this when I was thinking about cleaning cloths. Yes, cleaning clothes. Oh the glorious things we think about as moms!
I have had an internal debate going on for a while between synthetic and natural fibers. I love my microfiber cleaning cloths because they get the job done – even with just water. However, after a few years, it’s hard to get them clean and they aren’t biodegradable (a fact I wasn’t aware of when I bought them). I have been trying to decide what to replace them with when they bite the dust.
I was leaning towards natural fibers when one day it dawned on me – cotton really isn’t a natural fiber anymore. Gasp! When did that happen?
