Household products - Dishwasher detergents
Have you ever ran your dishwasher, pulled out a cup, filled it with water, and tasted the soap residue with your water? Yes, unfortunately soap residue does happen. Did you know some of those same chemicals left on your dishes are inhalant toxins?
This info on this site is never to scare you. This info is purely to educate you as to what’s in the products that you use. We used Cascade for years. Did it give me cancer, probably not and hopefully not. So WHY do I care❓
. 👉🏻🌟Because the EPA reported this year, “a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.” The EPA continues to say that after researching, “people spend about 90% of their time indoors. And INDOOR AIR POLLUTION IS ONE RISK THAT YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT.” 🌟
👉🏻When the EPA suggest that you actually do something about pollutants in your home, it means it worth listening too 😄.
What’s causing your indoor air in your home to be polluted? It can range from radon to mold to improper ventilation to lead in paint, to just the fumes and fragrance from things like kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners, laundry soap, dishwashing detergent, air fresheners, plug ins, etc. Products I buy to clean my home with, is an easy place for me to start to try to reduce the indoor air pollutants.
