Some of the ingredients might be: Nonylphenol Ethoxylate, Colors, 4-Dioxane, Stabilizers, and Alcohol Ethoxylates. Such ingredients may be toxic and cause cancers. The "scent-free", "gentle" or "free&clear" were poorly rated as the others. Below are some common products that are rated with a D: Gain Liquid Detergent with Freshlock, Lavender Downy Ultra Concentrated Fabric Softener Downy Ultra with Febreze Cheer Bright Clean Powdered Laundry Detergent(Free & Gentle) Read more about this here: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/does-your-laundry-detergent-contain-these-5-common-carcinogens.html

The detergent I use rates a D. Yay me. I am going to research this a bit more and see what other product I can use that gets a higher rating. I have tried using a homemade product with terrible results. The soap didn't dissolve well. Unfortunately unless you can afford the more expensive products we are stuck using less than desirable ones.
