I am convinced as we speak that P&G adds a "moldy" smelling chemical to their detergents. I've experimented and I feel sure that anything new you buy will end up smelling moldy with almost any detergent.

Remember when detergents smelled flowery or sweet, Cottony and fresh. Now they purposely make clothes smell bitter. If they know so much about making almost any kind of smell with chemicals, then why do they choose to make it smell so disgusting?

It all started about two years ago and now we have the 2X and all. These chemical smells NEVER come out of the fabrics, intentionally. How long do we allow the Big Businesses to force feed us products?

I have found that we cannot trust these corporations. I buy natural products (though sometimes things that say "natural" are not!) and make my own cleaners. 98% of the fragrances out there are petrochemicals (literally!). And who knows what mold related stuff is in there, or if batches are getting contaminated. I think you're so right! Things have gotten really out of hand.

I posted that before I learned this today:

The enzymes used are all produced using species of Bacillus, mainly by just two companies. Novo Industri A/S produce and supply three proteases, Alcalase, from B. licheniformis, Esperase, from an alkalophilic strain of a B. licheniformis and Savinase, from an alkalophilic strain of B. amyloliquefaciens (often mistakenly attributed to B. subtilis). GistBrocades produce and supply Maxatase, from B. licheniformis. Alcalase and Maxatase (both mainly subtilisin) are recommended for use at 10-65C and pH 7-10.5. Savinase and Esperase may be used at up to pH 11 and 12, respectively. The a-amylase supplied for detergent use is Termamyl, the enzyme from B. licheniformis which is also used in the production of glucose syrups. a-Amylase is particularly useful in dish-washing and de-starching detergents.

It sounds complex and disgusting.
