Cleaning Product Labels
The truth of the matter is that many manufacturers of cleaning products are guilty of false advertising. There are an increasing number of products using words like “natural”, “non-toxic”, and “green” but many times this is misleading. Non-toxic simply means that it does not meet the definition provided by the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (which only states a product is toxic if it causes injury when inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin). If you are concerned about toxicity, look for the Green Seal and Ecologo symbols on the sticker of the bottle.
Scented products are enticing simply because they smell good but many fragrances are produced with a variety of chemicals that may be harmful after long term exposure. Non scented cleaning products work just as well without unnecessary chemicals.
