Another reason to use green cleaning approaches: your lungs

I remember the time I tried a spray shower cleaner a friend had recommended (remember the scrubbing bubbles ads?). My bronchial tubes hurt and I started to cough. Simple Green does the same thing to me. There’s a so-called green product from Clorox that drives me out of the room.

Increasingly research is showing that a lot of household and commercial cleaning products are hurting lung function, especially for women.

So if the man of the house doesn’t want to do all the housecleaning, switch to safe cleaning methods: water, vinegar and baking soda can clean virtually anything. Use hydrogen peroxide to disinfect sealed surfaces.
