Did you know that the EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency) estimates that household air can be 2-10 times more polluted than outside air due to household cleaning products?! OH! I thought I was CLEANING when I was using them! No you idiot...you are polluting!
Not only do I find out that they have a significant impact on your health, but they also wreck havok on the planet when they are washed down the drain. These chemicals feed into our water supplies, rivers, lakes, and oceans...NICE!
Shockingly....I never really thought about that before! To think all the times I mopped the floor with Mr. Clean (the big menacing bald man on the package of industrial stregth house cleaner) only to dump it down the drain afterwards and never to give it a thought again...duh. I guess I considered anything that went down a drain or flushed down a toilot (potty if you prefer) was magically taken away by the drain fairies never to be seen of again. I imagine I never thought about asking for the drain itinerary like where was the next stop in my #2's travel schedule? TOO disgusting to think about really, but inquiring minds want to know...?
I was browsing the cleaning products that are now offered and Mrs. Meyers is my new favorite:
All Natural, effective, and smells great! I wish I could say that for a few other afore mentioned household "doodies."
