The Harmful Cleaning Chemicals

10 Aug 2018 6:17 PM | umalee janousek

When walking into a hospital early in the morning people get a nose full of a strong bleach smell. First thing that comes to mind is going to be, they just cleaned this area. Making people feel like they are in a clean environment, but what they don't know is that there are bad side affects. People can start to feel sick, like  headache, vomiting and maybe even getting skin burns. Some people working with bleach might not know that bleach can't be mix with other cleaning products. It is also bad for people who have pets. Animals walk and roll around the house and then lick themselves clean and getting that cleaning product in their mouth. 

Using products that have a fragrance most people like to use, because it makes the air smell fresh. People can choose their favorite smell and it comes in all shapes and sizes. The company's that make the items don't have to label that there is phthalates in their product. Phthalates is a group of chemicals used to make plastic more flexible. It is harmful males and their reproductive system. This substance is also found in other item, so make sure to read labels before buying the product.

When cleaning windows the big thing people think about is if there are streaks left on the windows. When buying a window cleaning product  most of them guarantee no streaks will be left be hide. How can this product do that with an ingredient called ammonia. Ammonia evaporates, so it doesn't leave any marks. People that are the most affected by this product are the elderly, people with asthma, and workers using this product everyday. They will end up getting bronchitis as a result.

Almost everyone one likes an all in one cleaning product or an all purpose cleaner. It helps save money and help minimize the product amount. When a company choose to use an all green clean product they can find items like these to buy. It helps the workers, so they don't have to carry around so many different cleaning products. They also don't have to worry if it is going to be harmful for other surfaces.

When cleaning a bathroom that gets a lot of traffic going through it people want it to be very clean. One item would be the toilet, using heavy duty sanitizing cleaner is the go to product. What is going to supersize people is that using a green clean product that uses a plant extract has the same affect as the heavy duty chemical cleaner. If that doesn't make your mouth drop it also have a fresh smell and it lost for a long time. It also leave the toilet sparkling clean.

One of my favor items to use are cleaning wipes. Most of the cleaning wipe you find in the healthcare setting is going to be bleach wipes and bacteria wipes. Now if you have never used them they are every hard on bare skin. If someone touches the surface after it has been wipe down by one of these products they end up getting white spots that burn in that location. When using an all natural product people don't have to worry about getting skin burns. It is also safe for using in a home setting with or without kids.
