Dish Detergent Smuggled Into Washington?

Why are Washington citizens smuggling dish detergent into the state? Well, in 2008 dish detergents containing phosphorus was banned by force of law in the state of Washington. Now, citizens are taking matters into their own dirty little hands and smuggling detergent out of Idaho.

Why banned detergent? According to the genius Washington lawmaker, banning phosphorus containing detergents will help the environment. How? Phosphorus can foster algae which can damage waterways. Hey, I don't make this stuff up.

How long have we had detergents? Has it really been that big of a problem? Does your state face the possibility of this ban in the future?

Stay tuned.

Ain't Washington next to an ocean or something?
