National Spring Cleaning week
Those friendly little scrub brushes pictured on Scrubbing Bubbles® Foaming Bleach Bathroom Cleaner look so cute, don’t they? The comercials are fun and cute too. What isn’t cute is the toxic chlorine bleach this product uses to clean. Bleach is toxic to people, animals, and our environment and it can irritate your nose, eyes, skin, and lungs. That’s why the label on every bottle of Scrubbing Bubbles recommends you use it in a “well-ventilated” area and wear protective gloves!
The hazards of common cleansers aren’t just hearsay. New research shows that toxic cleaning agents, like those found on grocery store shelves, are more damaging to human health than had been previously understood! A new, independent study based on 20 years of research reveals that cleaning with products like Scrubbing Bubbles as little as once per week is as damaging over time to your lungs as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years! In fact, the researchers concluded that toxic, airborne ingredients like the vapors from chlorine bleach used in the cleaning products sold at grocery stores are among the most dangerous culprits.
Of course, none of this surprised me. I’ve been aware of the dangers of grocery store cleaning products for decades because of my asthma and allergies. That’s why I was thrilled to find a manufacturer who has been developing safer, more effective alternatives to accomplish all of my household chores without subjecting me or my family to the toxic chemical agents used in so many of today’s cleaning products.
My bathroom cleaner is the perfect example of a safer, more effective alternative. It delivers superior results without any of the toxic side effects. Soap scum and water spots dissolve harmlessly with the power of citric acid—the kind found in lemons. My health isn’t endangered and my family isn’t put at risk when rinse my tub, sinks, and showers. It smells great and cleans fast leaving shining surfaces.
I don’t know what you use, but in our house it isn’t open for discussion. I’m glad I got the toxic chemicals out of my home…it’s improved the health of my family and my home environment and that’s what matters to me. The toxic ingredients in Scrubbing Bubbles cleaners are harmful to women and every family member—they leave behind a toxic chemical footprint. All my cleaser leaves behind is a fresh fragrance, a sparkling clean bathroom, and incomparable peace of mind.
