Do insecticides remain on cotton used in clothes?

    Yes, there are trace amounts of pesticides found in traditional cotton clothes. To avoid this buy organic cotton, especially towels, bedding and undergarments as these items are up against your skin the most. Because cotton is not a food item the growers don’t have as strict of rules about how much and when pesticides can be applied. As a result they tend to use more chemicals and closer to the harvest then food products. Buying organic cotton is a great way to reduce the amount of harsh pesticides going into our environment and bodies.
