Every Singapore Household would buy dettol, that includes me. Now I know what's brewing in my home. Its time to change disinfectant.
Dettol has three main compounds: chloroxylenol, pine oil and castor oil.
Pine oil and castor oil are not considered toxic. But chloroxylenol is poisonous and should not be ingested.
While not considered that toxic to humans (unless swallowed), chloroxylenol does kill fish. Cleaning or washing with it can result in the some of it getting into our rivers and lakes.
It's become popular because it does kill a wide variety of microbes including bacteria, fungi and some superbugs. Natural equivalents would be tea tree oil or neem oil.
The Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database ranks chloroxylenol as a mid-range toxic chemical that can cause burning, itching, rash, redness, or swelling. If you experience any of these symptoms you should stop using it immediately.

MelaPower detergent from Ecosense is 6 times more concentrated than all detergents from NTUC OR COLD STORAGE. I divide one bottle into 3 bottles and fill them up with water. You just need to use as normal measurement for your laundry. Alternatively, you can just pour 15ml for each full load and mix well with water to disperse it into the washing machine. You can do the same with the MelaBrite 6x.
MelaBrite 6x is an ultra-concentrated color-safe brightener that is strong and effective, ecologically sensible, non-caustic, safer for your home, and economical. Requiring just a half ounce per load of laundry, MelaBrite 6x still delivers a powerful, proprietary blend of detergents, enzymes, and brighteners to target stains and safely remove them without resorting to toxic or corrosive chemicals—giving you brighter, whiter clothes that look newer and last longer than ever before. Good for kids white uniforms. :)
MelaSoft is good for towels and bed linen. Its 2x concentration. One 15ml is good enough to wash a full load of towel together will Melapower and MelaBrite 6x.
Try them and you will see the differences!
ALL THESE PRODUCTS ARE POWERED BY NATURE, ECO-FRIENDLY AND HIGHLY EFFECTIVE!!
