Household cleanersHere are my top three reasons why not to buy most household cleaners:

  1. Chemicals – are hazardous to humans and animals.
  2. Disease – Many of these chemicals have been linked to cancer, asthma, allergies and other disorders.
  3. Environment – Most cleaners come in plastic containers which takes hundreds of years to decompose. These empty containers should be disposed of as hazardous waste. Most end up in our landfills.
