Cheap chemicals can get rid of that dirt, stink, and mess, but not the harm that they actually cause.
Health and Safety comes first as we keep a clean home. But sometimes, looking, feeling, and smelling clean becomes our only concern. Most have that misconception, that what seemed to be clean, keeps us healthy and safe.
Let me show you facts why these are very different things.
10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers were caused by cleaning products found in home. That's 206,636 incidents, where 120,434 children were involved, in the year 2000.
Thousands of chemicals that are widely used may not have been tested for safety.
Chemical formulas are considered as trade secrets, but The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found that one-third of the substances used in the fragrance industry are toxic. These ingredients are not required to be listed, but were rather labeled as "fragrance".
After being done with these cleaning formulas, they're washed away down the drain, into the sewages, and released to our streams and rivers. Not all would break down naturally, and would contaminate our very own ecosystem. They would eventually affect aquatic creatures, other animals, and vegetation. In turn, would also affect the source of what we eat.
When consumed or absorbed through the skin, they may have harmful effects, be toxic, cause cancer or cause birth defects. Cheap chemicals can get rid of that dirt, stink, and mess, but not the harm that they actually cause.
