Think those cleaning products under the sink are making your home a cleaner and safer place? Think again.
It seems counter-intuitive, but commercial cleaning products are among the most dangerous items in your home. While you may think they are “freshening up” your house, they are actually polluting it with dangerous chemicals.
Studies have shown that many of our favorite cleaning products – even some of those labeled as “all natural” – come with a plethora of dangers and health risks. Some of these include:
Fumes may trigger asthma attacks
Common cleaning products can be laced with cancer-causing carcinogens such as formaldehyde and 1, 4-dioxane
Children born to women with cleaning jobs had a higher rate of birth defects
Complications to the reproductive system
Chemical burns and poisonings
So, what does one do to avoid these health risks? Stop buying commercial cleaning products!
You can achieve a sparkling clean, germ-free home for half the price and none of the health risks using nothing more than vinegar, baking soda, lemon, and salt. All of these products are natural disinfectants on their own, and can even be combined to create a safe, effective all-purpose cleaner for around the house.
