The Ecosential by Smart Choice™ line of home cleaning products is the green solution to persistent worries about the health risks posed by chemical cleaning agents. A growing number of people realize that the chemicals used in oven and surface cleaners pose serious short- and long-term health hazards.
Oven cleaners, for instance, commonly contain chemicals so dangerous that ingestion of a miniscule amount is enough to kill a small child. Inhalation of monoethanolamine, which is the primary ingredient in one popular oven cleaner, can cause severe irritation and burning of the nasal passages. It can also burn the skin through clothing. This is part of why green cleaners, such as Ecosential by Smart Choice™, are becoming more popular in homes.
Risks of Chemical Residues
Most cleaners do not pose as much immediate danger as oven cleaners. Those surface cleaners, however, are not benign chemicals. Many of the active ingredients in popular brands are classified by the EPA as carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, or neurotoxins. Many of them are bioaccumulative. Is this threat great enough for you to switch to a green choice like Ecosential by Smart Choice™?
Bioaccumulation is the technical term for chemicals the body cannot eliminate efficiently. These chemicals end up being stored in fatty liver tissue or in the body's other fatty deposits, including the brain and kidneys. Low levels of these toxins have no discernible effect, but repeated exposure over time contributes to serious diseases. For instance, people who routinely work with cleaning chemicals were found by University of Iowa researchers to face much higher rates of bladder cancer. Ecosential by Smart Choice™ does not use toxic chemicals.
The Smart Choice
Using household cleaners regularly will maintain clean surfaces, but the cost is rather high. Ironically, the cleaner the surfaces remain, the more your family is exposed to toxic residues. Many researchers now believe the growth in chronic diseases, including childhood obesity, is partly due to exposure to environmental toxins. With Ecosential by Smart Choice™ cleaning products, you don't have to trade toxins for grease and grime. You can have a truly clean environment without the health risks.
