What do you clean? Let’s make it green! There are many reasons to use green cleaning products. Green sustainability is important for a healthy home, especially in our laundry room.
Living creates laundry. There are many ways to ensure your practices emulate green sustainability in the laundry room. Every week we find our clothes have new drips, drops, smudges, and smears from food, drinks, ink, dirt, grease, and our body. These create the stain of the day.
In treating these stains it is important to understand that since skin is the largest organ in our body we must be cautious about what we put on it. Studies show it is a very short time from when a chemical on our skin gets into our bloodstream! So what are stain removers are made of? Nasty chemicals that are concentrated for the purposes of treating the stain.
Unfortunately some of the more popular stain removers (e.g., Shout, Spray’n Wash, Mr. Clean, K2R Spot Lifter) are made of common petrochemical based chemicals that cannot be considered one of the green cleaning products, including isopropyl, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, acetone, naphtha, terpene, and other petroleum distillates. You will also find ammonium hydroxide, sodium hydrosulfide, hydrofluoric acid, acetic acid, oxalic acid is used. Oftentimes these are not listed on the label because that is not a requirement. That said, however, if there label recommends washing your hands after use, that is a strong hint that nasty chemicals are in use!
