How safe are the cleaning products you use in your home?
We use cleaning products everywhere in our home and offices. Washing and cleaning our dishes, countertops, furniture, clothes, floors, windows, and now even spraying that “clean air smell” through the air. Makes you wonder what ever happened to opening a window!
In our war on dirt and germs we may often actually be making things worse. We are simply unaware of the significant health damage it could be causing our family and even to our pets! Many cleaning products in fact are very harmful to the health of people, animals and the environment. Most of these products are made up of petrochemical components and have many disadvantages.
Here are some environmentally friendly cleaning tips for making your household a little greener.
- Toxic Chemical Cleaning Products
First things first: get rid of all those chemical-heavy cleaning products lurking under your kitchen sink. How many of those bottles read “Danger” or “Caution” complete with a frightening warning? Throw them out!
- Avoid poor indoor air quality
We hear the air inside a home or office can be more toxic than the air outside! This is because of the presence of toxic materials and substances. .Keeping windows open as often as possible allows fresh air in and keep toxins flowing out. This is especially important when cleaning your home.
- Minimise your use of detergents and cleaning products
- If this isn’t too gratuitous we would advice everyone to use environmentally-friendly cleaning products
Here is a list of top plants for removing toxins from the air in your home
