Did you know that cleaning your house may have the same negative health effects as smoking an astounding 20 cigarettes per day

Some of the toxic chemicals found in popular cleaning solutions are high levels of chlorine, ammonia, volatile organic compounds, phthalates, even acetone.

These chemicals can aggravate your allergies, make you feel sick and dizzy, and even carry potentially serious long-term health risks. These include respiratory illnesses, hormone/endocrine disorders, and even some types of cancer. 

Plus, these chemicals can also cause serious harm to our environment. 

We know that you’re concerned about how cleaning products could harm your health and the health of the people you care about the most. As an eco-friendly smart consumer, you’re looking for the right non-toxic cleaning products. 

Still, you want to be sure that these better-for-you cleaning products can still handle some of your toughest messes — and you’re not exactly the “DIY” type, so making your own cleansers is out of the question. 

Don’t worry. We have the solution you need. 

Read on to learn more about the benefits of going with healthier, non-toxic cleaning products, and get familiar with the Lemi Shine difference. 

1. A Better Indoor Air Quality

Unfortunately, many of us have had the unpleasant experience of feeling woozy, dealing with itchy, red, and watery eyes, or just feeling like we can’t quite catch our breath after a bout of cleaning — especially in a room that’s not well ventilated. 

This is because some toxic cleaning products contain VOCs, or volatile organic compounds. VOCs are released into the air inside your home every time you use cleaning products that contain them — and they can stay there for a long time afterward. 

This may lead to difficulty breathing, rashes, and even damage to your nervous system and kidneys. 

In addition to posing a threat to your health and indoor air quality, VOCs and other toxic ingredients in household cleaners can also lead to a serious uptick in urban air pollution. 

2. No Toxic Residue Left Behind

If you don’t thoroughly rinse a surface or object once you’ve finished cleaning it — and in some cases, even if you do — toxic cleaning products can leave dangerous chemical residue behind. 

The toxic ingredients left behind in the residue can end up on your skin, on your dishes so you end up ingesting them, and even in the bathwater that you use. 

Some of these ingredients may even be flammable. 

Especially if you live in a home with pets, young children, or people with weaker immune systems, the toxins left behind in the residue will have even more of an effect on their health. 

Health-conscious, non-toxic cleaning supplies don’t put your family at risk once the job of cleaning is done. 

3. A Safe But Powerful Star Ingredient 

As a discerning consumer, you may sometimes doubt whether or not non-toxic cleaning products truly can pack the same punch as those that have a higher overall chemical content. 

The great news is that, especially when you buy health-conscious cleaning products from the right company, your concerns are unfounded. 

So, what’s the safe secret ingredient that makes it all happen? 

Citric acid. 

It’s able to kill mold, mildew, and bacteria without releasing all those toxins into your home’s air. This means that it can both clean and disinfect the objects and surfaces in you need to shine. It even works to banish hard water stains, rust, and calcium deposits. 

This is because citric acid is able to safely interact with other acids that leave stains and spots, softening deposits and gradually dissolving them. Plus, it can also neutralize stinky smells, leaving everything smelling as clean as it looks.

4. Affordable Cleaning Products 

Many consumers also incorrectly assume that, unless they make their non-toxic cleaning products themselves, they’ll never get a good deal on safer household cleaners. 

First of all, many of the products used in health-conscious cleaning products are derived from natural ingredients, which means that they’re more affordable for companies to make. 

Plus, since so many businesses are getting into the non-toxic cleaning scene, prices are much more competitive than you might imagine. 

5. A Variety of Mess-Specific Products

Finally, remember that you don’t have to rely on a “one product only” solution when it comes to finding the right safer cleaning supplies for your home.

In fact, quality companies will be able to offer you several different cleaning products for each room, appliance, and surface in your home.

You’ll even be able to find non-toxic options for your laundry room, your dishwasher, and even cleansers that will help to keep the appliances you use every day fresh.
