I am chemically sensitive, but believe it or not, I react to organic cotton. Some say it's the cottonseed oil, which easily turns rancid when the clothes aren't processed enough. After a couple of washes (just 2), my daughter's clothing smells just fine to me, but I'm still concerned about residual glyphosate, dyes, and chemicals. I use organic Whole Foods brand detergent and a lot of hydrogen peroxide. My question is, how many times would it realistically take to remove all of the chemicals used in processing the cotton? Is that even a reasonable expectation?
