Rather than go into the specifics of each type of harmful substance in mainstream cleaners, I'll leave you with this....look for these words on your household products: DANGER. POISON. WARNING. CAUTION. Take them to heart, and keep these things out of your home. Many of these ingredients are not only toxic, but are known carcinogens
containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation
a substance or agent causing cancer
So now what do you do instead? I thought I would post a series of blog posts about safer, natural alternatives - from window cleaner to laundry detergent to outdoor products. First up will be window cleaners - please check back!
