Are Your Bedsheets Making You Sick ?

I have an adorable little Shih Tzu named Toby. (Keep reading, this could affect you). He sleeps with me on top of the bedspread. Every night he scratches & scratches unless I give him Benadryl, which I hate doing! I've tried everything including enzymes and probiotics. Finally I got the idea of washing my bedspread and NOT using fabric softener, using baking soda instead . Viola , it worked, he hasn't been itching since !!
Do you know what kind of chemicals are in fabric softener?
> Benzyl Acetate: linked to pancreatic cancer
> Benzyl Alcohol: upper respiratory tract irritant
> Ethanol: on the EPA hazardous waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders
> A-Terpineol: can cause respiratory problems, including fatal edema, and central nervous system damage
> Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic on the EPA'S hazardous waste list
> Camphor: causes central nervous system disorders
> Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic
> Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders
> Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled

No wonder people are sick and can't sleep !! Read more here:
