Why choose green cleaning ? Many household products used today contain harsh chemicals and toxins that can result in respiratory and dermatological problems. Typical chemicals found are:
- Ammonia (In glass cleaner): When ammonia enters the body as a result of breathing, swallowing or skin contact, it reacts with water to produce ammonium hydroxide. This chemical is very corrosive and damages cells in the body on contact. Inhalation of lower concentrations can cause coughing, and nose and throat irritation. Exposure to high concentrations of ammonia in air causes immediate burning of the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory tract and can result in blindness and lung damage.
- Sodium hypochlorite (Bleach): Chlorine Bleach is a strong corrosive material. It will irritate the eyes, skin and the respiratory tract by merely inhaling the gasses. The dangers of bleach are even greater when mixing it with other cleaners. When this happens a poisonous gas is released that can cause bloody noses, neurological disorders, and headaches
- Ethelyne glycol monobuytl acetate (In all purpose cleaner): Harmful if ingested, inhaled, or adsorbed through skin. Irritating to skin, eyes, nose, throat, mouth, and lungs.
- Petroleum distillates (in furniture polish): Irritation to eyes, nose, throat; dizziness, drowsiness, headache, nausea, respiratory system, central nervous system.
