When we clean our homes it is very important to use only eco friendly cleaning products. Many store bought cleaning products contain chemicals that are not only bad for your health but horrible for our planet.
Did you know that a person who spends 15 minutes cleaning scale off shower walls could inhale three times the one-hour exposure limit for glycol-ether containing products set by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment? It is true, cleaning products that are not green can be dangerous to your health.
It has been estimated that a person who cleans four houses a day, five days per week, 50 weeks per year, could inhale about 80 micrograms per day of formaldehyde if they are not using green cleaning products.
When you use only green eco friendly cleaning products in your home, you will not only help the health of your family but also reduce your impact on our environment.
