Many traditional daily household cleaners contain extremely harmful chemicals that may be toxic to the brain and nervous system, the hormone system and other organs. The government has so few resources dedicated to this research, so the problem continues to be largely hidden from the everyday consumer in America. Furthermore, the lack of ingredients listed on product labels makes it almost impossible for the everyday consumer to find healthy household products.

The products used to clean your surroundings can affect your health and the environment. Chemical levels can be up to 70 times higher inside the home than out. There are over 100 chemicals commonly found in homes that have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, skin reactions, psychological abnormalities, headaches, depression, joint pain, chronic fatigue, chest pains, dizziness, loss of sleep, asthma….and the list goes on. Housewives have a 55% higher risk of getting cancer than do women working outside the home.

Poisoning by these chemicals is also major concern. The harsh chemicals are usually bottled in attractive packages and bright colors, making them all the more likely to be found by children. Approximately 70% of all poisoning accidents occur in children between the ages of one and five.  

Removing toxic chemicals from your home and replacing with natural green products is simple. The amount of products need to truly clean your home will be greatly reduced. Very minimal natural products are required, and can be combined to make different types of pastes and cleaning agents for a variety of applications. The cost savings is hugely beneficial as well. Not to mention the extreme health benefits for anyone residing in the home.

Many cleaning services are making the switch to natural green products. Employees risk for developing health issues will be decreased significantly, as well as the employers risk of liability for workers health issues. Local communities will recognize the companies effort to reduce the use of resources. 

A proper green cleaning program will protect the cleaning employees and the occupants of the space being cleaned all while maximizing cleaning results. Technology has allowed the development and mass production of natural cleaning products, making it that much easier and attainable by everyday consumers.
