An environmental group named Women's Voices for the Earth did some tests on laundry detergent and found that Tide contains small amounts of dioxane, a cancer causing chemical. Tide's dioxane is found in the company's Tide Free and Gentle and Original Scent brands.
Swell. We use the Original Scent kind.
However, some toxicologists claim the amount of dioxane is well below danger levels. And frankly I am prone to not take too seriously data from a group which calls itself, Women's Voices for the Earth.
In other Tide news, it seems that Tide has become one of the most shoplifted items going these days.
