I'm with you, Dej. I read all labels. I buy many products at my natural foods co-op. Yes, vinegar is a help, too. I don't know, as you say, how long we will be able to trust products we like. I use Badger Balm ointment on my feet instead of Burt's Bees. Usually avoid anything labeled "natural flavors" because that is used as a euphemism for MSG.
Seventh Generation cleaning products at the natural foods store has been safe for me so far. I use their detergent for dishwasher and clothes washer, but use less in the clothes washer because I add baking soda. And the last rinse has nothing but baking soda. This keeps itchies out of clothes.
Even so-called natural sheets and clothing can come with formalin spray to keep them "smooth"--must be washed before use until odor recedes. It took four washes to get my new "organic" sheets usable, but they sure are pretty, and I needed new sheets badly.
I got them from the Company Store. Much more expensive ones may be bought from Giaim, but I think many things are overpriced at Giaim.
An organic sheet can be actually organic and then sprayed with formalin.
