When we buy cleaning products, most of us will seek out brands we love to use for certain cleaning tasks. What we aren’t aware of is that these cleaning products could be a risk to our overall health and can negatively affect the planet we live on. It’s time to make the switch to green cleaning products! Not only will they give you the same cleanliness that the store brand names provide, they will also give you a healthier home to live in.
Here are a few of the many benefits you will receive when you switch to a greener clean!
Create a safer home
When you buy regular cleaning products you may have noticed that they are littered with warning labels that tell you they are poisonous, flammable, and toxic. This should be the first sign that these products are not safe for you and your family to use. They are especially dangerous for children and pets to be exposed to because of their smaller size. You can minimize the risk of accidentally ingesting these chemicals by switching to green cleaning products.
For your health
You will instantly notice you feel better when you start using green cleaning products. If you usually get headaches, skin rashes, coughing or sneezing fits when you clean, it may be because of the products you are using. You won’t have any of these symptoms with greener cleaning products and you will help protect your family, pets, and yourself from harsh chemicals.
Have better air to breath
The air inside your home can be filled with unwanted pollutants when you use conventional cleaning products. These pollutants can cause a lot of health and respiratory problems like liver and kidney damage, and damage to your central nervous system. You should never be worried about the quality of the air you breathe while you are inside of your home.
Save the environment
When you switch to green cleaning solutions, you are making a small step in protecting the environment. Most conventional cleaning products contain a lot of toxins and the packaging is created from non-renewable and non-biodegradable materials that will negatively affect the earth when you throw them away. Green cleaning products are created from sustainable manufacturing practices and are made from non-toxic materials.
Save your money
Going green isn’t all about switching to healthier cleaning products; it’s also about gaining more green for your wallet! One of the easiest ways to save money on cleaning products is to make your own green cleaning products. Also, with more companies switching to green products, you will be able to find competitively priced brands that will be cheaper than your old favourite cleaning products.
Will make cleaning easier
Take a look at your cleaning shelf. You may notice you have a lot of products that clean different things. When you go green, you will only need one or two products to get your chores done faster. For example, vinegar can be used to clean windows, clean toilets, clean counters, and more! When you make the switch, you will stop dreading your cleaning chores and start enjoying them because they are really easy to complete!
