- Essential Oils

- Formaldehyde donate*
- 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1, 3-diol 5-bromo-5-nitro-1, 3-dioxane

*Formaldehyde is widely used by manufacturers of bedlinen to make it look smooth and unwrinkled. It also prevents the development of mildew during storage and shipping. Formaldehyde is often used in bedding labelled 'easy care', 'permanent press', 'anti-cling', 'anti-static', 'anti-wrinkle', 'stain resistant', 'mothproof' and 'mildew-resistant'.
For some, sleeping on or in bedding treated with formaldehyde can result in sleeplessness, coughing, watery eyes, fatigue upon awakening and sore throat. It has been classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
