Many of us were raised with cleaning products that contain innumerable amounts of toxins. Growing up, questions regarding the toxicity and the hazards of chemicals within the environment were altogether overlooked. Today, however, evidence shows that what people put in their homes – and what they use to clean their homes – is just as important as what we put inside our body. In fact, the products most people commonly use within their homes enter into our bodies via the air we breathe, through our skin, through the water we drink, and any through any food we consume that has been on our counters or tables. With all these chemicals, it’s no wonder that the EPA found the air quality in our homes to be 5 to 10 times more toxic than the air outside, and typically contaminated by anywhere from 20 to 150 different pollutants.
Much of this pollution comes from petrochemical cleaners. Unfortunately, many commonly used cleaning products contain many toxic ingredients. If you are not using a 100% natural product, you are probably using dangerous chemicals. Be aware of products that do not disclose all of their ingredients. Products that do not openly disclose all of their ingredients usually have something to hide. The words ‘organic’, ‘non-toxic’, and ‘eco-safe’ do not always mean the product is natural – or completely safe. On personal care and household products, the labels ‘organic’, ‘non-toxic’, and ‘eco-safe’ are not regulated by the FDA or USDA – this means that companies can use these terms even if their product is toxic and un-natural. Look for products that have nothing to hide and products that openly disclose all of their ingredients. Some products that use a ‘natural’ label, such as Ms Meyers, Simple Green and Method, contain artificial fragrances, and other chemicals, and are NOT natural products. We use only safe, natural, non-toxic, environmentally friendly products in your home.
