There was a time when we thought that the stronger the smell of a cleaning product, the more effective the product was. It was worth it to endure the (disgusting) smell of a Heavy Duty Multi-Purpose Floor cleaner to live in a germ-free home. Well oh were we wrong. Like many, you may still use grandma’s secret weapon once in a while to make sure that every inch of the house is as clean as ever. We hate to break it to you, but it’s time to leave nonna’s tips & tricks and switch to natural cleaning products. (We’ll definitely keep nonna’s recipe book though).
Why you should buy natural and organic household cleaning products!
Take a minute of your time to have a look at your cleaning products. Can’t find the ingredient list on the bottle? That’s definitely not a good sign. How can this be possible? Isn’t there a law that would require companies to list what’s in the products we use on a daily basis?
Just like it’s the case for perfumes and fragrances, as we discussed in another blog article, companies don’t have to disclose the ingredients included in the cleaning products they put on the market because of proprietary information. The problem is that many chemicals and harmful ingredients are known to trigger allergies, asthma, and could be linked to cancer or Parkinson’s, just to name a few. So, what is the solution for those who want to know what they are breathing day in and day out?
To make sure you and your family aren't exposed to products where you don't even know the ingredients, opt for greener, more transparent, and more responsible companies.
