Chemical Soup Invades your Home Environment
Updated: Dec 3, 2018
How many cupboards or cabinets in your home store your chemical soup?
hiding under the kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, garages, sheds, basements.....
How much money do you spend on chemical cleaning supplies and the paper towels used to wipe it all up?
In 2011, the website Statistic Brain Research Institute compiled census data and found that the average American spent $42 on cleaning supplies every month.
Chemicals in cleaning products have been shown to cause a multitude of health issues and an overburdened toxic body.
In the U.S. alone, 3000 tons of paper towels are sent to the landfills and yield a $6 billion annual market. Not only are chemicals & paper towels expensive, but they are relatively ineffective at purifying without chemical residue. The detriments far outweigh any perceived benefits.
Toxic burden including multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), also known as idiopathic environmental intolerances (IEI), is a disputed chronic condition characterized by symptoms that the affected person attributes to low-level exposures to commonly used chemicals. Sick-building syndrome (indoor environments overwhelmed by chemical infiltration) often contributes to symptoms, which are typically vague and non-specific. They may include fatigue, headaches, allergies, runny nose, sneezing, rashes, nausea, degenerative disease, auto-immune disorders and dizziness.
Commonly attributed chemically-laced substances include scented products, detergents, cleaning products, food, pesticides, anti-bacterial wipes, plastics, household products, synthetic fabrics, furniture, construction products, smoke, petroleum products, paint fumes. Other pollutants include solvents, VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), perfumes, “chemicals” in general and often exacerbate problems with regard to airborne pollen, house dust mites, and pet fur & dander.
Whether you are chemically sensitive, consciously aware of harsh toxins in our cleaning products, or completely unknowing to the chemical soup and aerosolized particulate matter surrounding us,....we are ALL affected by the rash of chemicals inculcating our indoor and outdoor environments.
So how do we reduce the chemical barrage in our home spaces?
Create a home that is safe & clean with only water & microfiber.
Be vigilant consumers!
The exclusive microfiber that is 1/200th the size of a human hair seems to be one of the only viable, eco-friendly solutions to reduce harsh chemicals & paper towel use. Used dry the exclusive microfiber cloths originating from Norway create ionized, static charge to lift up the smallest debris and particulate. Used wet the exclusive microfiber cloths clean and "removes up to 99% of bacteria from surfaces". When the exclusive microfiber cloths are hung up to dry, the 'locking silver' properties self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth.
Since you use only water with the exclusive microfiber cloths to
clean & sparkle, there is NO CHEMICAL or BACTERIAL residue and reduced
paper towel waste and expense.
