So What’s So Wrong With Conventional Cleaning Prducts? And a Note from the Universe!


So What’s So Wrong With Conventional Cleaning Products?

On the surface, they’re great at what they do, repelling dirt, dust, and grime with nothing more than a spritz and some elbow grease. But many of these cleaners contain toxic ingredients that, while safe in small amounts, could have unknown long-term side effects–like phthalaltes, which help products hold onto fragrances, but may cause birth defects; volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which lower indoor air quality and can be connected to respiratory problems; phosphates, which break down dirt but can also affect algae when they enter the water supply; petrochemicals, or petroleum-based by-products that have been linked to cancer; and chlorine bleach, which disinfects but can cause serious health problems.

Many of these ingredients are the same compounds you are working to eliminate from your furniture, beauty routine, and laundry processes; if they don’t have a place in your living room, medicine cabinet, or closet, they shouldn’t be in your cleaning supplies, either.

I’m sure it’s just a phase they’re going through.
