Five reasons why.
Here are the top 5 reasons you should be using a plant based cleaner.
1. Safety: Have you read the label on the back of a commercial cleaner?
Warning! Flammable! Do not ingest! Keep out of reach of children!
Many chemicals used in household cleaners have not been tested for
safety. Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance
classes accounting for calls to the National Poison Control Center.
Many commercial cleaners contain ingredients that are endocrine
disrupting chemicals, carcinogens, or neurotoxins. Kids, babies, and
pets are even more vulnerable to chemical exposure because they
are smaller and cannot get rid of toxins as easily as adults. It is
definitely worth ditching harsh chemicals for a cleaner with plant-
and mineral-based ingredients.
2. Air quality: Did you know that indoor air is 5–7 times more polluted
than outdoor air? Most cleaning products contain Volatile Organic
Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with many health
problems, including damage to the liver, kidneys, and the central
nervous system. They have also been shown to harm our lungs and
cause throat irritations and headaches. VOCs are released when
products are used and can linger in the air long after we clean.
When we breathe, we inhale the air—as well as whatever is in the
3. Environmental impact: Harsh chemicals found in cleaners are not
only harmful to our bodies, but they also have a major impact on the
environment and are huge contributors to environmental pollution.
Some conventional cleaning products contain ingredients that are
toxic, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like
petroleum, so they harm the Earth's ecosystems. Harsh chemicals
may contaminate the water through rivers, streams, and lakes,
which affects wildlife, plants, trees, and us! Plus, there are
thousands of chemicals that are in cleaning products that have
never been tested for safety.
4. Convenience: It's much easier to clean with a few products that
take care of all your cleaning needs, rather than having to have a
whole arsenal of toxic products under your sink and in your
bathrooms. With Thieves® Household Cleaner, you can tackle
multiple cleaning jobs in your home without switching products as
you clean! It cleans countertops, windows, mirrors, floors, toilets,
showers, and pretty much everything else. Plus, you don't have
to worry about getting bleach stains on your clothes or
accidentally mixing dangerous chemicals together. It’s worth a
try for the convenience alone.
5. Cost: The cost of buying cleaners is expensive, especially if
you have to buy multiple cleaners. Thieves Household Cleaner
is very cost effective, and it comes in a concentrated form.
There are approximately 60 capfuls of the cleaner in a
14.4-ounce bottle. Using the medium degreasing ratio, you can
get about 29 16-ounce cleaners. That’s less than $1 a bottle!
Why worry about all the what if’s? Be empowered and take
charge of your chores by using a cleaner with plant-based
ingredients. These are only five of the many reasons to use a
plant-based product. Get started today! You will be so glad
that you did. http://www.thisworks.biz
