Slowly, consumers are realizing food is not the only thing we buy that is full of pesticides and chemicals that harm our health. Many of the cleaning products we use on a daily basis are toxic. When we use these products we release toxic chemicals into the air, which are than circulated throughout the house by the furnace. By using green, eco-friendly or organic products we are assured we are breathing healthy air and what is being released into the air is not harmful to our health.
Chemicals released into the air at home are dangerous, because it builds up. There is little fresh air exchange in homes today because they are so air-tight, so every time you clean with a chemical spray it is added to the last time the spray was used. This builds-up and before long you are circulating a toxic cocktail that can cause allergies and asthma. Since I have switched to green products I no longer have difficulty breathing when I clean and I have had fewer asthma attacks in gereral.
