Over the past decade, the ever-expanding market of home cleaning products has included a number of dangerous chemicals and harsh cleaning agents. Today, the cleaning products are more dangerous than the things we are trying to clean up.
Many common household products contain bleach, ammonia, alcohol, formaldehyde and more. The toxic fumes of these chemicals are a major threat to indoor air quality, which can irritate eyes and respiratory systems. Some substances are even linked to neurological, liver and kidney damage, asthma and even cancer.
Fortunately, green cleaning can achieve an accepted level of cleanliness, which is pleasing for adults and safe for children and pets, without using hazardous household cleaners and disinfectants. Green cleaning is the use of environmentally -friendly products and services that are non-toxic, biodegradable, and petroleum-free.
Green cleaning is simply taking the next step beyond our current approaches to maintain and improve the healthfulness, comfort and aesthetics of our surroundings.
