There are many great reasons why you should switch to using organic cleaning products. Uncover these reasons and try these three simple homemade cleaning products for the kitchen.
Keep toxins out of your home. (Most homemade products are toxin-free!) According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accidental household poisonings affect more than 300 children in the United States every day. If you keep the medicine cabinet locked and use cleaning products that are safe, you’re reducing your risk of an accident.
Use natural products because someone in your home has asthma or allergies. (Organic cleaners are much better to use around those with sensitivities.) Interestingly enough, the stuff that you clean with can actually make you sick, essentially negating the benefits of cleaning itself. According to the Environmental Working Group, conventional cleaning products and artificial fragrances can trigger asthma, can include low levels of 1,4-dioxane (a carcinogen), and can even include low levels of formaldehyde (another carcinogen) without disclosure.
Green Choice is a leader in the carpet industry for using green alternatives to the usual chemically based cleaning that is the norm in the carpet cleaning business. Regular carpet cleaning products usually contain ingredients that are considered to be health risks. One common ingredient is perchloroethene, or “perc”. (This is also used in dry cleaning) Perc can cause headaches and nausea if you come in contact with it. It is also believed to cause cancer. This is just one of the potentially dangerous chemicals that regular carpet cleaning solutions use and bring into your home or apartment. Green Choice only uses green ingredients that are safe and biodegradable and will not impact your home environment. This means it is safe to use with children and pets in the house during cleaning. Also if you have allergies, our green cleaners will not set off allergic reactions during the cleaning.
