Many Cleaning Products Said To Contain Toxins

Household cleaning products may contain toxic substances linked to health problems such as asthma, allergic reactions, and cancer, according to a new report by the Environmental Working Group.

The environmental group rated more than 2,000 household cleaners - from laundry soaps and stain removers to bathroom cleaners and floor care products. Products are graded A to F based on the safety of the ingredients and how well the maker discloses those ingredients.

Vegan Daily News highly recommends this as an outstanding, unbiased resource for finding the greenest cleaning products!  For example, EWG rates 49 different glass cleaners…only 3 warrant a grade “A”, while almost half fail with an “F”.

10 Household Cleaners To Avoid At All Costs

You can avoid all these type of products by making your own non-toxic cleaners or shopping at your local natural foods store.  Most Whole Foods Markets have a fantastic selection of non-toxic cleaning products.
