What is it about cleaning the bathroom that you hate? For me it isn’t the leaning into the tub while on my knees to clean the dang thing. It isn’t scrubbing the toilet…although once I did ruin my favorite pair of jeans when the toilet cleaner with bleach splashed out. It isn’t having to remove everything off the counter, cleaning it, and putting it all back on. It is the fact that the fumes make me gag.
I hate spraying down the tub with cleaner because it has to sit for a few seconds before scrubbing it down. During those few seconds I am gagging on the fumes that are burning my lungs. Even if I walk away while it sits, when I come back in it is like walking into a gas chamber. Listen to this--“a report by the EPA to Congress determined household cleaners three times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution.” I also read this, “newborn infants have trace levels of toxic chemicals in their bodies, passed on by their mother’s exposure.” As someone who will be a house cleaning momma one day, I need to start thinking about the gas chambers I am now bringing into my home so my babies can be healthier.
Ecostore USA is the perfect “No More Gagging” solution. They offer products that have eliminated hazardous toxins that are the basis of so many conventional cleaning products. They are helping us and keeping our planet in the best shape possible. Their products have “no nasty chemicals” in them.
It is really interesting to read what chemicals are in our every day everythings and see what they really do. For example, toxic petrochemicals. Their effects cause rapid aging, degeneration, and disease. They can be found in personal care items like shampoo, soap, hair spray, gel, lotion, shaving cream, deodorant, toothpaste, astringents, and make-up. You know that they are in your products if you read in the ingredient list: “prop” (can cause vomiting, mental depression, death); “methyl” (can cause blindness, cancer, allergic reactions); “Butyl” (toxic to central nervous system and kidneys); “Ethyl” (can cause vomiting, impaired perception, kidney damage). The great thing is Ecostore products do not contain toxic petrochemicals!
After reading about “No Nasty Chemicals” I decided to do a little experiment at my house. I wanted to see what I was using that had some of these nasty chemicals in it. First I went to my bottle of “The Works Tub and Shower Cleaner” There wasn’t an ingredient list on it! So I went to the website on the back of the bottle….doesn’t work. When I googled it to find the website, I found it…were there any ingredients on the website? NOPE! What are they hiding? Next, I went and got our “CLR Bath and Kitchen Cleaner.” Ingredient list on bottle? Negative. Couldn’t find an ingredient list listed on their website either. After googleing for the MSDS (material safety data sheet) I saw “Propylene Glycol Normal Butyl Ether” is one of the ingredients. NASTY CHEMICALS! No wonder I gag when cleaning. ---May cause vomiting, kidney damage, impaired perception…DEATH---- I clean my kitchen with this!
