Do we really need any of those cleaning products?
Are they marketed to us, merely to make someone money?
Are they really making the place cleaner? Or are the chemicals they contain causing us more damage than the germs, they wipe out?
I have began using a simple recipe of
-freshly squeezed lemon juice,
-accompanied by a smidgen of water.
This mixture can then be place into a spray container and used on all surfaces. It leaves the place looking and smelling great. And in comparison is going to be way better for you than piling a bunch of chemicals together to “kill germs”.
The following chemicals may damage the nervous system, fetuses and can cause cancer
Benzene, Toluene, Xylene, Methanol, and Ethylbenzene
They are in oven cleaners, disinfectants, detergents, toilet, tub and tile cleaners, metal polishes, drain openers, adhesives, paints and finishes.
Formaldehyde is known to cause cancer in people. It is in air fresheners, antibacterial dish detergents and carpet cleaners.
