Choose Cleaning Technology. Not Cleaning Chemicals.
The average household contains about 62 toxic chemicals say environmental experts. We're exposed to them routinely--from phthalates in synthetic fragrances to the noxious fumes in oven cleaners. Ingredients in common household products have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders, hormone disruption, and neurotoxicity.
Manufacturers argue that in small amounts these toxic ingredients aren't likely to be a problem, but when we are exposed to them routinely and in combinations that haven't been studied, it's impossible to gauge the risks. While a few products cause immediate reactions from acute exposure, different problems arise with repeated contact. Chronic exposure adds to the body's "toxic burden"--the number of chemicals stored in its tissues at a given time.
No one can avoid exposure to toxic chemicals altogether, but it is possible to reduce it significantly. And the best path is to switch from chemicals to technology.
Technology continues to improve our daily lives in countless ways. From electric toothbrushes for cleaner teeth to robotic floor sweepers that remove cat hair, technology is more often than not a force for good. Add to that list: cleaning technology like the iClean mini. The iClean mini cleans, sanitizes, and deodorizes without chemicals. Small enough to hold in your hand, but as powerful as bleach, the iClean mini is a simpler, safer, and more sustainable way to clean.
So the next time you reach for Windex or Clorox stop a moment and think about how much better it would feel to reach for a mini!
