Cleaning house is not a little matter and can have far-reaching health effects; whether you’re a cleaning fanatic or someone like me who cleans when you’ll see the difference. It’s all in what is used. Toxins in our homes – mainly the chemicals in our cleaning products – are being linked more and more often with many of the diseases that are rapidly taking control of our lives. Have you noticed the rise in numbers of children diagnosed with asthma and cancer?
Following is a video from the Canadian Broadcast show “MarketPlace” called “The Toxic Brew”. What they cover about the chemicals in household cleaners will really open your eyes (if you’re not informed already). WE need to become aware and responsible and cannot trust that because something is on TV or on the shelf at the local grocery store that it’s safe for our families. Children especially are at risk because their little systems (immune, reproductive) and brains are not fully developed. So many homes today are built tight – meaning that unless you open your windows, there is no (or very little) ventilation. You are trapped with the chemicals in your cleaners.
Here is a great alternative for the toxic brew – non-toxic and powerful cleaners! I actually do clean more often now because I no longer deal with all the noxious fumes or toxic chemicals. 🙂
