Many of the cleaners we use have harsh chemicals. If you have a strong sense of smell like me, you can probably smell them when you get home after your cleaners were in or want to gag when you have to clean up a spill or stain.
Well, gag no more because there are some alternatives that actually work.
I have a few personal favorites. They aren't perfect, however they are a better alternative to the common brands like Lysol and Clorox.
Today I'll tell you about one of them- Seventh Generation All Purpose Natural Cleaner.
The first thing you'll like about it is that it doesn't smell toxic like many of the others. In fact, it does not have much of a smell at all because of the minimal amount of chemicals, lack of chlorine bleach and because it does not contain synthetic fragrance (believed to be harmful to health). Secondly, you'll appreciate that it does the job.
According to the packaging, Seventh Generation only contains 6 ingredients, 5 of which are considered "clean" (no pun intended). The only one that is of some concern is Methylisothiazolinone which is a synthetic chemical that is potentially an allergenic. A report released by the European Scientific Committee in 2003 concluded that insufficient information was available to allow for an adequate risk assessment analysis of this chemical.
I like that the first ingredient is water and the next 3 are plant based or plant derived.
