Hi. Well, there is an alternative to both. I am a representative for a wellness company. They only sell natural, healthy, non-chemical type cleaners, vitamins, cereal, you name it.....all kinds of things for all kinds of illness. They have laundry detergent that I love, you use a half of an ounce per load! It lasts forever! And it's great! Their dryer sheets are also made of non chemical type material. I've found that even my dog doesn't sneeze anymore when sleeping under the blankets!
If you want more information, let me know. I use their products and I really do love them. And they ship them to your door! There is no water in anything they sell, you have to add it yourself, so everything goes way longer than what you buy with all the chemicals at the store.
It's safe for humans and animals, even goats, cows, horses and more!
