Truth is the household cleaning supplies industry is not regulated. In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to US Poison Control Centers accounting for 206,636 calls. Of these, 120,434 exposures involved children under 6.
It can be a challenge to know what’s truly safe and what isn’t. Knowing what ingredients are in your products is important but knowing where they come from is even more so! The source should be trustworthy and honest and 100% transparent. And I have found that source!
Now I’m on a mission to help people not only choose great safe products but to also understand the health challenges that may be as a result of the toxins in these products! In my personal experience the big offenders are : Shower cleaner, laundry soap and drain cleaner. My Dad suffered a severe chemical burn on his hands a couple years ago... see that blog post here.
