Keeping your home clean is a top priority for many homeowners and the recent coronavirus pandemic has made this become an even bigger priority. It is important to make sure you keep your home clean but this doesn’t mean you have to buy expensive chemical cleaning products and disinfectants to do so. Prices have risen for some cleaning products and many of these can actually be bad for your health and the environment. This might be the time you decide to make the switch to green cleaning products, so we have provided the top 3 reasons to switch to green cleaning.
Safer Home and Environment
One of the biggest reasons for why you should consider making a switch to green cleaning is because it's much safer for your home and the environment. Many of the chemicals found in cleaning products are toxic and can cause serious harm to children and pets if they get into the wrong hands. Although you will likely keep your chemicals in cupboards out of reach, you may forget to close these cupboards or put the chemicals away. These harmful chemicals can also end up back in the water supply after getting washed down the drain or flushed down the toilet. This means they can end up back in the water you drink or contaminating the fish we eat.
Going green with your cleaning products can also help you save money as chemical cleaning products can also be expensive. All of our e-cloth products are designed to be used with just water, and microfibre cleaning can help remove the need for chemical products. However, even for stubborn stains and hard to remove dirt, there are plenty of household items that can work just as well as chemical cleaning, such as vinegar, olive oil and lemon juice. There are many natural cleaning products you can use to get your home clean and can help save you money. Check out our guide to using apple cider vinegar for cleaning here.
Chemical products can also be damaging to your belongings and home, with green and natural products much kinder to your environment. Accidentally spilling chemical cleaning products on carpets or furniture can lead to nasty stains that are hard to get out, or damage that is irreversible. Chemical products can even damage surfaces over time but green cleaning products are much less hard wearing. Making the switch to green cleaning can help to preserve your home environment and avoid any unnecessary damage that could end up being expensive.
Many people also think that their home simply won’t be free of germs without chemical cleaning but this is not the case. It has been proven that our microfibre technology removes 99% of bacteria and mould from your surfaces. This means you can truly ditch your chemical products and clean your home with just water.
