Make a Clean Sweep of Toxic Household Cleaners

You’ve thoroughly cleaned your house.  It looks better, smells better and makes you feel better — you’ve created a cleaner, more sanitary, healthier environment for you and your family, right?  Maybe not.

The majority of today’s mainstream cleaning supplies contain dangerous chemicals, including ammonia, chlorine bleach, glycol ethers and alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs).

Exposure to these chemicals has been linked to both immediate health concerns (such as respiratory irritation) and long-term health effects (such as asthma and cancer).

In addition to raising severe health issues, many of today’s commercial cleaning projects pose hazards to the environment.  Everything that flows down the drain or into a landfill eventually ends up in the water supply.  This is particularly true for people who rely on wells, as opposed to municipal water supplies.

Avoid all the worries about toxic chemicals by making your own cleaning solutions!  A few simple ingredients and a little elbow grease will take care of most of your cleaning needs.Dr. Barbara Smith
