Wow, are those chemicals scary or what? Now what do we do so we don’t irritate our skin, eyes, lungs and more? “Green” is the way to go but that too can be problematic if you don’t read the labels! Reading more labels, just what we all want. So we know what chemicals to avoid as well as those with “harmful if…”.
But remember, the government does not require manufacturers to list ingredients on household products. Manufacturers are required to have a Material Safety Data Sheet (an MSDS), which lists precautions and known health effects, available on request. Or you can go to the EPA site to research a specific chemical.
Now, to make things even more confusing, there are no regulations on the words: Green, Natural, Environmentally Friendly or Eco-Friendly. These words have no regulated meanings, so they are useless when it comes to cleaning products according to Jane Hoback, a freelance writer from Denver in a recent article.
I use Shaklee’s Get Clean Products and love the results. They really work and don’t make me sick, cough or suffocate when I use them. Get Clean products are biodegradable, which means they break down easily instead of hanging around for hundreds of years. And they don’t contain any of the ingredients we have discussed earlier. We have seen how those chemicals are harmful to us as well as the planet.
Shaklee’s Get Clean Products are SAFE FOR THE PLANET as well as SAFE FOR YOU because they are:
- No Phosphates – No Nitrates
- No Borates – No Animal Testing
And Shaklee’s Get Clean Products outperform the national brands. When tested in third party laboratories, the Get Clean products out performed Bounce, Windex, OxiClean, Method or Seventh Generation Dish Wash Concentrate, as well as Spray n’ Wash. Your home can be both safe and clean, along with being environmentally friendly!
