I’m ready to invite Spring to New England and with that a little Spring cleaning is in order.
The American Lung Association reports that many mainstream cleaning products can irritate your eyes or your throat; and cause skin irritation, headaches and or other health problems, including cancer. The Mayo Clinic recently posted another great article on cleaning products and the effects of toxic chemicals. None of these things are favorable for any of us! I remember my cleaning lady being so grateful that I had a nontoxic solution that actually works. She had a reoccurring cough and had to wear gloves because the skin on her hands were so damaged. I’m proud to say that my team has been able to provide safe solutions to many cleaning companies and families across the United States.
Even products advertised as “green,” “natural,” or “fragrance free” can contain chemicals that cause health problems. Fortunately, you can limit your exposure to those risks. Read all of your labels and avoid cleaning products that do not list ingredients. That’s right, it’s not mandatory that companies include ingredients on the label! It’s up to the consumer to decide whether a product is safe to use or not.
