If Cleaning Makes You Sick, It’s Not Just Your Imagination

Posted on October 11, 2011. Filed under: Green Cleaning, Safe Cleansers | Tags: , , |

If you clean with traditional chemicals, wearing a mask may be a good idea.Do you have a headache after a day of cleaning? It may not be because you are not fond of cleaning; the chemicals in the products you use may be making you sick.

This article by Victoria Bender, Are We Cleaning Ourselves to Death, offers some sobering facts on the toxicity of traditional household cleaners.

Did you know:

  • Federal and state government agencies only regulate outdoor air, not indoor air?
  • EPA studies show that indoor air may be 3 to 70 times more toxic than outdoor air?
  • Cleaning products that contain toxins and carcinogens do not have to  list these items on the labels because we don’t consume (eat or drink) them? Evidently, ingesting the fumes through our eyes, skin and sinuses is not considered consuming. That’s quite a loophole!

Knowing these facts makes me glad that Sponge and Sparkle uses non-toxic cleaning products.

Here’s a quote from one of our customers:
