We shut liquid cleaning products in cupboards, out of reach of children, because we recognise them as a potential danger. But we often don’t consider what the residues left on surfaces are doing to us and our children. Nor do we consider the risks when we are actually doing the cleaning.
Fragrances are often added to cleaning products and they are not always what they appear to be. e-cloths use just water to clean grease, dirt and bacteria. They are not impregnated with chemicals. Being able to clean without chemicals, naturally reduces the risk from using chemicals in the home.
It is virtually impossible to clean without leaving chemical residues behind – residues that contaminate areas and objects used by all of us, including the very young who are more susceptible.
Chemical sprays, in particular, create chemical ‘mist’ that can be inhaled. The spray also drifts to areas, particularly floors, that are used by babies and pets.
