A Simple Tip For Choosing Cleaning Products

Posted on November 30, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Consumers may find it time consuming and confusing to research all the ingredients in the cleaning products under the sink, so product warning labels are a useful first line of defense.

Cleaning products are required by law to include label warnings if harmful ingredients are included. From safest to the most dangerous, the warning signals are “caution”, “warning” and “danger”.

You should remove products with labels stronger than caution.
Even products with a cautionary label may present health risks if used improperly or with repeated exposure over time.

Label Guidelines (for a 180 lb male):

  • Caution 1 oz to a pint may be harmful
  • Warning 1 teas to 1 ounce may be harmful or fatal
  • Danger 1 taste to 1 teas is fatal

(Remember: these fatal amounts are for a 180 lb male….not a child!)

Good ventilation and skin barriers are important when using any over the counter cleaning product.

New study proves important benefits of clean!

Posted on November 16, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

A soon-to-be-published study led by a Brigham Young University professor has found that “people are unconciously fairer and more generous when they are in a clean smelling environment. The research found a dramatic improvement in ethical behaviour with just a few spritzes of citrus scented Windex”. (source: Christian Science Monitor )

So…not only do we now know that a clean home is a healthy home, but apparently the moral progress of our species is contingent on a clean home! We can change the world one clean building at a time! Who knew it could be so easy? And if you dont have time to keep a clean home – what more reason to you need to justify calling up that local cleaning service right now?!
