There are tons of cleaners on the market today that boast quick and effortless ways to clean, but have you ever wondered how those cleaners are able to be so effortless and quick? It is because most commercial cleaning products are filled with chemicals, which are pretty toxic not only to humans, but pets and our environment as well. Did you know you can get the same type of clean, if not better by using natural or “green” cleaning products and a little elbow grease. Let’s be honest you will have to put a little effort in when you use “green” cleaners because they aren’t filled with metal eating chemicals that could strip a car of its paint in 30 seconds.
Sometimes cleaning products are “Greenwashed”, which means that they are labeled as “green and “biodegradable”, when in fact, they are not. Marketers know that if you slap the words “green” and “biodegradable” on products and put pretty pictures of plants, people will just assume the product is safe and environmentally friendly without actually reading the ingredients.
