One of the important life skills that I make sure I teach my kids is to have them do some basic house chores since young. But sometimes, I get hesitant to rope in the kids to help because I worry about the harsh chemicals in detergents. I get a stinging sensation if my hands are in long contact with laundry detergent whenever I hand-wash delicate clothes. I try to buy dish washing liquids that stated “hand care” on them. After some time, my hands still get dry. I know I need to protect little hands from all these harmful chemicals and am really happy to find cleaning products that are totally safe and kids-friendly from Pipper Standard!
Did you know that exposure to petrochemicals can lead to the development of allergies, skin rashes, asthma, eczema, and even affect reproduction and fetal development in pregnant women? Common cleaning products may contain hazardous petrochemicals and their byproducts such as 1,4 – dioxane, formaldehyde, and quaternary ammonium compounds, which can cause serious allergies and other lifelong health problems.
Further, most laundry detergents add harmful chemicals like sulfates and chemically derived surfactants, such as SLS, LAS or SLES, which may cause skin irritation in the form of peeling, dry or itchy skin, rash, or scaling, particularly for those who are prone to allergy.
So, what makes Pipper Standard Products so safe that kids can also use them?
PIPPER STANDARD LAUNDRY DETERGENT – HOW IS IT SAFE FOR KIDS AND ADULTS?
Pipper Standard Laundry Detergent as well as all Pipper Standard products are natural, hypoallergenic-certified, non-irritation certified and safe for the entire family including babies and those with sensitive skin. Using their patented pineapple fermentation process, Pipper Standard Laundry Detergent effectively and safely cleans clothing with natural enzymes and biosurfactants. It produces less foam all the while being free from chemicals and any known allergens. Most detergents in the market add harmful chemicals to create a foaming effect due to the common misconception that more foam means better cleaning. Also, with less foam, it is easier to rinse out!
Impressed with the safe cleaning, the first thing I did was to try out Pipper Standard Laundry Detergent together with the kids. We hand washed the children’s soft toys and their favourite bolsters. We only needed to pour a small amount of the laundry detergent and soaked the items for about 10 minutes. What ensued was a pail of dirty water and just 2 rinses later, the soft toys and bolsters were white and clean!
The kids love the faint pineapple mixed with Lemongrass smell. There is no synthetic fragrance but natural essential oil. I love that it has really little foam and still be able to clean effectively, if not, better cleaning power than chemical-made laundry detergents. We need not rinse multiple times and that saves water and time! Not only that, because it is free of chemicals, Pipper Standard Laundry Detergent is suitable for indoor drying with no sunlight and will not leave a damp and moldy smell! Damp smells usually occur when bacteria attach to the chemical molecules stuck in your clothes from chemical laundry detergents or fabric softener. Pipper Standard Laundry Detergent has zero chemicals and hence no damp smells will ever occur. That really helps greatly when one does laundry during rainy season.
PIPPER STANDARD FABRIC SOFTENER – THE AMAZING FABRIC SOFTENER THAT IS FREE OF QUATS, FORMALDEHYDE, PARABENS AND OPTICAL BRIGHTENERS
You will probably not find another fabric softener that is free of Quats, a petrochemical used in fabric softeners worldwide. Quats are responsible for making fabric softer; however, they coat clothing and do not rinse out until the next wash cycle, leaving your skin exposed to dangerous chemicals as you wear your clothing. Exposure to quats can act as a catalyst to developing allergies and/or asthma. And Pipper Standard Fabric Softener is totally free of Quats. So, how does it soften the laundry? Amazing as it sounds, instead of using Quats, they use a blend of their fermented pineapple fluid and soy lecithin which allows their product to naturally soften fabric and prevent static cling without using any harsh chemicals.
Further, Pipper Standard Fabric Softener is free of Quaternium-15, formaldehyde and formalin, which are all well known for being toxic. Exposure to these chemicals can lead to health and respiratory issues. It does not have Optical Brighteners which are synthetic chemicals added to make clothing appear whiter and brighter, and thus cleaner.
If you think that just by washing baby clothes with safe and natural products will protect your baby and children’s delicate skin and health, then you might want to think again. Parents’ clothes are equally important to use safe and natural products as we are in frequent contact with the kids when we carry and hug them.
We like that the Fabric Softerner has a gentle Floral scent in which its fragrance is essential oil-based. It does not have the overpowering artificial fragrance that comes with most fabric softeners that we used before.
PIPPER STANDARD BATHROOM CLEANER
Pipper Standard Bathroom Cleaner is tough on soap scum, stains and other buildup in showers, sinks, bathroom floors and toilets. Missy 12 is big enough to tackle the bathroom cleanliness. We use the Bathroom Cleaner to clean up some stubborn stains on the toilet bowl seat and sink. We left the foam for about 10-15 minutes and brushed away the stains.
We had a brown stain on the sink that could not go away with common detergents for the longest time. To our delight, the Bathroom Cleaner did its magic and the stain went away completely! We were impressed!
We went on to spray the Bathroom Cleaner foam onto the toilet bowl seat which had really very bad and stubborn stains. While it did not remove the stains totally, it certainly helped to lighten them and brighten the toilet bowl seat. I guess with such long-time old stains, it will require a few more tries before they can be removed completely. We were nevertheless satisfied with the result which was highly visible.
The Bathroom Cleaner has an Orange Blossomed pleasant scent from natural essential oil. It is cleverly designed with 2 spray streams: lift the nozzle lid for spray and close the nozzle lid for foam. As it is non-irritation certified and free of allergens and no hydrochloric acid, it does not irritate eyes, skin or nose and can be touched directly. Hence, I find it really safe for Missy 12 to clean up the bathroom, knowing that her hands are protected from harmful damage.
PIPPER STANDARD MULTIPURPOSE CLEANER
I love Multipurpose Cleaners! They can be sprayed onto any surface to clean up grime, dirt, dust and oil that the kids brought in from outdoors or indoor spills. Just one or two sprays on the targeted area and wipe out with a cloth. No rinse needed. It is that simple! Pipper Standard Multipurpose Cleaner comes in Grapefruit scent from natural essential oil. It uses natural enzymes and fermented pineapple fluid to enhance the cleaning ability. It is natural and safe to use on kids’ toys. Best of all, it is easy for kids to handle the spray bottle on one hand and with a cloth on the other to help mummy do quick clean-up of spills and dirt!
