Why We Are Non-Toxic.

Updated: Aug 18, 2022

It's not the first time and it will not be the last time that we hear "non-toxic cleaning just doesn't smell 'clean' to me". In our opinion, smell isn't the only sense we have that indicates something is clean or unclean. Many times when using chemicals the fragrance added in the cleaner merely masks a scent, instead of addressing the culprit that is creating the scent. For this reason, we cannot denote that smell is the sole indicator of cleanliness.

"You have to work so much harder to clean with non-toxic cleaners". Refusing to use harsh chemicals on surfaces not only preserves the integrity of your surfaces, it allows you to feel what truly needs specific attention. Meaning you spend less time cleaning with non-toxic cleaners and you aren't damaging your lungs and surfaces in the process.

Sure those are reasons that could deter you from choosing to clean with non-toxic cleaners, but why SHOULD you clean non-toxic? The answer is simple: traditional cleaners are just the opposite, they are toxic. In the worst ways possible. Some of the top culprits can cause things like respiratory distress, dizziness, upper-chest pain, eye irritation, throat irritation, nasal irritation, and cough. Some products even utilize carcinogens which are known, as cancer-causing agents. So our question to you would be... is it really clean if it's causing you harm? We would argue to say that it is not.

Here are some ingredients to look out for:

  • Ammonia

  • Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Acetate

  • Sodium Hypochlorite

  • Trisodium Phosphate

If any of these ingredients are listed on your cleaning products RUN, do not walk.

Your children and pets should not have access to any cleaning product with the above listed on it. To include direct contact with surfaces where these chemicals have been used. Many times people take cleaners that contain these ingredients and mix them together (for social media videos), without taking into consideration the aspect of chemical reactions. This is dangerous, even hazardous. If you have to use protection against your cleaning agents then they are dangerous and would require dilution to make them less dangerous on the contact surfaces that you utilize in your daily life.

Real clean is green clean.
