Do you want to save money and avoid toxic chemical exposure while cleaning your house? The funny thing is that there is no catch here. It is easy, cheap, and good for you and the environment. I will provide you with the cleaning product recipes I have been using to clean my house.
What I find interesting is that cleaning product manufacturers are not required to disclose their cleaning product ingredients. Have you ever wondered why that is? Maybe it is just me but I always think if they do not want to tell me what the products they want me to buy are made of, they must be hiding something. And if they hide something, they must be hiding something they do not want me to know. And if they do not want me to know something, that something must be bad for me. And if that something is bad for me, why would I want to pay money for it? Again, maybe it is just me.
A lot of cleaning products are potentially dangerous for our health. You will know that by noticing warning statements on the label. Some cleaning products cause immediate hazards such as skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, chemical burns, or even death. According to the US Poison Control Center, in 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of toxic exposures.
