Dangerous Household Cleaning Agents You Should Stop Buying
We use so many household cleaning agents in our day to day lives. Cleaners for the floor, cleaners for various surfaces, cleaners for kitchens and the list go on. The everyday cleaners in our homes contain toxic chemicals like carcinogens (cancer-causing substances).
It’s laborious to find a balance between keeping a clean home and protecting your family from harmful chemicals. There are many mysterious dangers around our home, most of which we have no control over. In a world of going green, it’s hard to tell which products produce a threat to your health and which simply natural alternatives are.

When it comes to toxic kitchen cleaners, they temporarily kill germs on surfaces. They cannot kill germs completely and do not provide long-lasting disinfection. Some disinfectant cleaners were found to contain APEO (alkylphenol ethoxylates
). The metabolites of APEO are generally more toxic than the original compounds.

Toilet Bowl Cleaners
The corrosive ingredients that make acidic toilet bowl cleaners clean so well are the same ingredients that can cause burns on skin and eyes. They are also very dangerous when mixed with other types of cleaners.

Be aware that some labels that may make a product appear eco-friendly, natural, and organic are actually meaningless. For Ex, many aerosol spray and all-purpose cleaners have labeled no chlorofluorocarbons, which deplete the ozone layer, leading consumers to believe they are buying a more eco-friendly product by purchasing that brand. When ingredients are listed, choose products made with plant-based, rather than petroleum-based, ingredients.
