The harm from cleaning using toxic chemicals
The majority of modern homes have cupboards that are packed full of toxic and polluting cleaning products
we all use to make our domestic lives easier when to carry out cleaning tasks. We often pay high prices for these branded, commercial, chemical-based products without giving much thought to the long term health implications
to humans and the polluting effect
on the environment caused by their manufacture, use and disposal of packaging
(if not recyclable).
What’s more, many of us suffer from allergies such as asthma or sinus problems and we don’t realise our health is closely linked to our environment.
we use in our homes can have a negative impact on our health
. Treating our health conditions caused by allergies should include replacing with non-irritants all the harmful chemicals we use for domestic cleaning
. Most of us don’t realise that so many cleaning jobs can be carried out using our own home-made cleaning products. Take, for example, the unpleasant job of cleaning the bathroom
. We all want a bathroom and toilet that always smells and looks fresh but we can achieve this completely without chemicals
. Our bathrooms harbour many germs
and cleaning them is not a job anyone particularly relishes, even when it’s your own bathroom! We risk encountering unpleasant debris, nasty smells, smears and stains. CONTINUE ON THE NEXT PAGE...
