So many harmful effects when it comes to various cleaning products.

12 Oct 2019 4:30 PM | Martha Wilson

There are so many harmful effects when it comes to various cleaning products. It can be harmful on the environment as well as your health. We feel that cleaning products are  safe but that's not true alot of cleaning products are dangerously toxic. Cleaning product labels can be misleading alot of cleaners are labeled " Natural but are anything but, to protect yourself and your work environment is to avoid certain chemicals.

A company that uses hazardous chemicals are not concerned about your health, the environment and the effects that these chemicals can have. They are all about saving a dollar and finding a easy way out.

This is why I fee going green is the best way to go it benefits the planet and the community, it has a beneficial impact on the quality of water, energy use and the amount of pollution that is generated. Green products are low in allergens, they have biodegradable agents and they are good products made with natural ingredients and its the safety way to go.

For example a company that uses hazardous chemicals wilj use a chemical such as Butoxyenenthanol: A common ingredient in Kitchen, window and multipurpose cleaners that can interfere with the health of your red blood cells. Ammonia: which is found in glass and bathroom cleaners, it canbe very irritating to the eyes, skin, the throat and the lungs. Chlorine bleach; is a microbial and respiratory irritant. Bleach is a chemical found in mildew remover, and toilet bowl cleaners

Example of a company that uses green products are concern about your health they use products such as baking soda to make a all purpose cleaner for the kitchen and the bathroom. You can use baking soda and borax to make dish washing soap. Instead of using paper towels to wipe up a spill use a reusable cleaning cloth this cuts down on the landfill contribution with greener options for everyday paper products. 

Going green is the best way to go it's safe and cost efficient and it boostsyour business moral with your client, staff and the community.
