3 Effective Natural Alternatives to Replace all of your Chemical Cleaners

Did you know that the average household contains about 62 toxic chemicals? This list of chemicals includes:
  • Phthalates (found in dish soap and air fresheners; causes endocrine disruptions)
  • Perchloroethylene (found in carpet and upholstery cleanings; is a neurotoxin and possible carcinogen)
  • Triclosan (found in dishwashing detergents and anything "antibacterial"; promotes growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and is a probable carcinogen)
  • Quarternary Ammonium Compounds (found in fabric softeners and things labeled "antibacterial"; promotes growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria)
  • 2-Butoxyethanol (found in window, kitchen, and multipurpose cleaners; causes narcosis, pulmonary edema, and severe liver and kidney damage)
  • Ammonia (found in polishing agents and glass cleaner; causes breathing problems such as chronic bronchitis and asthma)
  • Chlorine (found in toilet bowl cleaners, mildew removers, laundry whiteners, household tap water; is a respiratory irritant and a thyroid disruptor)
  • Sodium Hydroxide (found in oven cleaners and drain openers; causes severe burns and sore throats)
