Cleaning products are a necessary daily product that have come so ingrained in our lives we assume they are safe, but in fact most are filled with dangerous chemicals such as chlorine, sodium hydroxide and butoxyethanol. These chemicals not only present a hazard to our health, but also our homes and environment.
We at Gleem feel passionately about preserving our environment, thus we felt we should provide some information about eco-friendly products to ensure your home is healthy and happy!
As mentioned before, such products can be harmful to humans, pets and your home. Chemicals such as butoxyethanol can cause minor symptoms such as sore throats as well as more serious issues like severe kidney and liver damage.
Some products include more acidic chemicals which overtime will cause upholstery and furniture to decay overtime.
Also, eco-friendly and organic products tend to be a cheaper option compared to big-labels. So switch now, for a healthier and happier environment, home and wallet!
Online is the best place to source and purchase more organic cleaning products. Big Screen Smile and The Ethical Superstore are both fantastic UK-based websites that offer eco-friendly, biodegradable products including soaps, washing-up liquid and all purpose cleaning. The Ethical Superstore takes it one step further by ensuring their products are also Fairtrade and vegan.
It would be unfair of us to expect other people to care for the environment without doing our part. Here at Gleem we have researched eco-friendly cleaning products to ensure we fulfill our role. So you can rest easy knowing that booking one of our domestic cleaners is still you doing your part.
Not only that, Gleem prides itself in working with the Charity organisation FRANK that aims to provide drinkable water to third world countries. If you would like to find out more make sure to visit them at www.frankwater.co.uk.
