One of the best things you can do to keep your family safe is to remove the toxic cleaning products from your home. Most of us do not think much about the products we buy, but many of them can be very harmful. It is easy to clean your home with non-toxic products if you know what to look for. Here are some simple changes you can make to keep your home safer and cleaner.
Change to a Non-toxic cleaner without ammonia:
The glass cleaner is a great multipurpose product. It cleans windows and mirrors, but can also be used to clean countertops in bathrooms and kitchens and stainless-steel appliances. Most traditional glass cleaners contain ammonia, which is irritating to the skin and can cause breathing problems when inhaled. It is easy to find glass cleaners without ammonia if you take the time to look when you buy. Non-toxic products are much safer to clean the surfaces.
Choose non-toxic multi-purpose cleaners:
Multipurpose cleaners are often used in stoves and countertops … which are also the same places where we prepare food. For this reason, it is important that cleaners effectively clean the surface, and it is equally important (if not more) that they are not toxic or dangerous. Therefore, be sure to choose products that are labeled “non-toxic”.
Avoid alcoholic products:
Many cleaning products contain alcohol, which is known to cause skin irritation and respiratory problems.
Ultimately, there are many alternative cleaning products that will keep your home as clean as ever without worrying about the safety of your family.
