Bye Bye Toxic Cleaners!

Hello!

Imagine: You go to the grocery store and you are out of some cleaner, looking at the wide array of products on the shelves with pictures of flowers and you can smell the fragrances just standing there all melding together.  How do you know what to buy, what to avoid?  Does it make any difference, really?  


Below are lists of the TOP 10 household products to AVOID, according to the Environmental Working Group, www.EWG.org, in an article by Alex Formuzis (https://www.ewg.org/release/spring-cleaning-ewg-s-tips-what-use-and-what-avoid#.WphJSyinHrc)


“These products all received an “F” grade in EWG’s rankings for one or more of the following reasons: 1) they contain ingredients linked to health effects such as asthma and respiratory problems, skin allergies and irritation, developmental and reproductive toxicity or cancer; 2) they contain ingredients may have harmful environmental effects; or 3) product labeling failed to disclose ingredients that may be toxic.”
