National Spring Cleaning Week
Isn’t it just awful how so many stain remover products almost advise you to wear a space suit when using their product? They instruct you to wear eye protection and a face mask, cover your skin when using it, and wash any part of your skin exposed to it. They actually use the word contamination, telling you if your clothing is “contaminated” with their product, wash it immediately! Not only that, but they strongly advise against breathing in their products’ fumes, mist, or spray for very long, but neglect to specify how long ‘very long’ is. If it’s not good to be around a product for ‘very long,’ why would I want to be around it at all?
Goo Gone® Degreaser’s key ingredient happens to be petroleum distillates. Petroleum distillates are irritating to the skin, and are considered a breathing hazard, and can be fatal if swallowed. Yikes!
Here’s what the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Household Product Database warns about Goo Gone:
“Warnings—Hazard Statements: Causes serious eye irritation, skin irritation and/or respiratory tract irritation. If breathing is difficult, remove VICTIM to fresh air. Wear eye protection, face protection, and protective gloves. Avoid breathing the dust, fume, gas, mist, vapors, or spray. Wash CONTAMINATED work clothing.”
Doesn’t that make you feel safe? I know with warnings like that, I don’t. Why in the world would I expose my family and risk their health just to get rid of a simple stain?
That’s why I love Sol-U-Mel. It’s simple solution for getting rid of stains without endangering my family’s health. Sol-U-Mel sorks dissolving stains the same way salt dissolves in water thanks to a proprietary combination of three cleaners featuring the solvent action of all-natural Melaleuca Oil. It has removed grease, permanent market, pet accidents, paint and fingernail polish, spaghetti sauce, wine, gum in hair or in the carpet, tree sap, and even road tar for me! It’s a wonderful freshener and deodorizer for wastebaskets and garbage cans. It removes the odors of smoke, pets, and even mold from the air and furniture. An added bonus: it kills mold.
For heavy duty spring cleaning I use Sol-U-Mel on my cabinets, walls, and more. It has a fresh scent and my home feels & smells fresh which makes me feel good because my home is healthy and safer—for me and my family.
