Why You Should Switch to Natural Cleaners
Your home is your oasis in the desert and should be the place you feel the safest. But are you really safe with toxic, chemical cleaning agents in your cupboards? If you have children and pets this is a particular worry. If you switch to natural, green cleaners it eliminates the risk to children and pets and ensures that your home is clean and safe from chemicals. A cleaner environment is good for your home, your finances, and your health. Here are a few good reasons for making the switch.
A Healthier Home
Have you ever stopped to read the labels on your cleaning products? Half the ingredients are hard to pronounce and even harder to understand. Why would you even want to clean your house with products that might be toxic and harmful to the environment (ammonia, acetone, chlorine, butoxydiglycol, 2-butoxyethanol, etc.). Many of these types of cleaners can be absorbed through the skin like oven cleaner or inhaled as fumes. The fumes can irritate your eyes, skin, and nasal passages. Natural cleaners have none of these ingredients and are 100% safe to use with children and pets.
Improved Air Quality
Many spray cleaners have ingredients that help them dry quickly when wipes but may not be so good to be breathing it or touching it with bare skin. Heavy sprays and deodorizers don’t clean the air, they actually contribute to lower air quality. Fluorocarbons from aerosol cans contribute to poor air quality as well. So that air freshener that you love so much is not really giving you any benefit at all.
Safe, Effective Cleaning Power
Many people think that natural cleaners aren’t as effective because they don’t have the strong chemicals. This is not true, however. There are cleaners like Get Clean® that are just as tough as any traditional cleaner. They remove dirt and grime just like their commercial counterparts but without the chemicals and toxicity. They get the same results with fewer risks.
You may compare products i n the grocery store for cost, but be aware that most products are mainly water and you’re paying for the brand name. Some concentrated cleaners are more economical by coming in a smaller bottle and letting you add water to make larger batches. For example, one 16-oz. bottle of Basic H2® Organic
Super Cleaning Concentrate makes 48 gallons of cleaner. That will save you a lot of money over time. And many products like this are multipurpose, and you can use it for cleaning multiple things in your home like degreasing your stove, cleaning windows, and countertops.
Eco - Friendly
As the name implies, green cleaners help keep our planet safer and cleaner. They use biodegradable, earth-friendly cleaning agents with no phosphates, nitrates, or other things the planet doesn’t like. Choosing concentrated green cleaners also helps
reduce waste by having less weight to ship and less packaging to throw away. For example, using the Get Clean® Starter Kit helps keep 108 pounds of packaging waste out of landfills and helps eliminate 248 pounds of greenhouse gas.*
The next time you need to restock your household cleaners, opt for solutions that would prioritize a healthier home and a healthier planet. Green cleaning is the way to go!
Green cleaners keep the air cleaner and have less of an impact on the environment. They are biodegradable, concentrated, and contain no phosphates, nitrates, or other toxic chemicals. Because they’re concentrated, there is less packaging and less waste. One example of this is the Get Clean® Starter Kit. It keeps108 pounds of packaging waste out of our landfills.
There are many benefits to switching to green cleaners. These are just a few of the most common reasons. If you want to help the environment and keep your home and family safe, make your own cleaners or try some of the ones mentioned above.
