5 Reasons Why Green Cleaning Products are better

Posted on June 1, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

FACT #1:   Liquid dish soap is the leading cause of poisonings in the home for children under the ae of six (over 2.1 million accidental poisonings a year).  Most brands of liquid dish soap contain formaldehyde and ammonia.

FACT #2:  The typical  home today contains an average of  62 toxic chemicals – more than even a chemistry  lab of a 100 years ago!

FACT#3:  Women who work in the home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who work outside the home.

FACT #4  Out of 2,435 pesticide poisonings in a  one year period, over 40% were due to exposure to disinfectants and similar cleaning  products in the home.

FACT #5  Today children have  chemical exposures from birth that their parents didn’t have until they were adults.  Because children are exposed to toxins at an earlier age than adults, they have more time to develop environmentally triggered diseases with long latency periods, such as cancer.

These are just  some  of the reasons why strong and toxic chemicals should be avoided, especially when there is no valid reason for putting your family’s  health in danger.    Green cleaning products work just as well,  if not better than the toxic formulas, and  many can be found right in the grocery store aisle, OR you can just  hire a green cleaning service like Sponge & Sparkle.  We  have,  through research and extensive trial and error,  found products that we are excited to use  because they work so well, are completely safe and smell fresh and clean.
