This is exactly why I am making the switch to all natural cleaning products! Triclosan, Perchloroethylene ……I guarantee most us can’t even pronounce these let alone have a clue what they are. Also most of us are probably guilty of completely dowsing our entire house in them and exposing them to our family. Don’t worry no judgement! I’ve been completely guilty of this too! However, now that I’ve done a little homework, hear me out. Just think about in a given day how many times you or your loved ones touch the counter tops that you just dowsed in these chemicals and then eat off those hands. Think about your little ones that may still be crawling around on the floor that put literally EVERYTHING in their mouths. Even our furry friends for that matter who spend most of the time eating things off the floor!!
I challenge you to look at the back of your cleaning products! Most of them will probably read something like:
HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND DOMESTIC ANIMALS!
AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN!
IF IN EYES CONTACT POISON CONTROL IMMEDIATELY!
So we can’t say we weren’t warned, it’s basically jumping off the back of the bottle screaming at us!
Also, I found some cleaning products that read the following for their ingredients:
Seriously!? That’s SUPER helpful right?
