Did you know? 17,000 is the number of petrochemicals available for home use, only 30 percent of which have been tested for exposure to human health and environment? This may explain why many of us develop allergic reactions when using particularly strong cleaning detergents. We recommend that if you are constantly exposed to such chemicals, wear gloves, and if necessary, footwear to avoid direct contact with the skin. There are many eco-cleaners on the market and better yet, many natural cleaning recipes on the web.Baking soda, vinegar and lemon are some of the common and commonly found ingredients for these eco-friendly cleaning agents.
