The Health Facts That Matter Most
Preventing toxins from joining your family has never been easier. Green Clean makes cleaning simple, safe, and super effective without all the toxins.
Let’s take a look inside the containers of typical household cleaners.
In common Glass & Surface Cleaners:
You may be shocked to find one or all of the following ingredients:
Ammonia is a very volatile chemical and is very damaging to you eyes, respiratory tract and skin.
Isopropanol : Causes irritation of the eyes and mucus membranes of the face. Symptoms can range from mild irritation, to coma, and even death. It is also known to produce serious health concerns in pets as prolonged exposure can cause liver damage, neurological malfunctions, unconsciousness, and even death.
Indoor air quality is compromised not only due to the chemicals omitted in our air, but because these products also are dispersed in a spray, they tend to be splattered like a giant toxic sneeze in more places then where we intended them to be….yuck!
In common Glass & Surface Cleaners:
Chlorine bleach is a very strong corrosive. It will irritate or burn the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. It may cause pulmonary edema or vomiting and coma if ingested. Never mix bleach with acid toilet bowl cleaners or ammonia. These mixtures may produce fumes which can be deadly
Your skin is your largest organ, and some chemicals are so readily absorbed through the skin, that they quickly make their way to your blood stream. In the case of scouring powders, they are known for skin contact since they are used to clean out tubs, where we place our babies to bathe, and showers where we stand and bathe.
In common Multi purpose cleaners:
The pool of toxic chemicals can be pretty deep.
Generally used for tough cleaning jobs, multi purpose cleaners can contain high concentrates of chemicals because they are used to remove grease, heavy dirt, and even mold.
Highly concentrated cleaners often subject the user to inhalant concerns, damaging the lungs, affecting the delicate eye tissue, and cracking and drying the skin it comes in contact with.
In common Toilet Bowl Cleaners:
Loaded with harsh chemicals, standard bowl cleaners are polluting our environment both inside and out since they usually contain hydrochloric acid or Chlorine bleach
Hydrochloric acid is a highly corrosive irritant to both skin and eyes that damages kidneys and liver; and hypochlorite bleach, a corrosive irritant that can burn eyes, skin and respiratory tract.
Chlorine bleach is a very strong corrosive. It will irritate or burn the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. It may cause pulmonary edema or vomiting and coma if ingested. Never mix bleach with acid toilet bowl cleaners or ammonia. These mixtures may produce fumes which can be deadly.

- Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants. Pound for pound of body weight children drink more water, eat more food and breathe more air than adults. The implication of this is that children will have substantially heavier exposures than adults to any toxicants that are present.
- According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) 50% of all illness can be traced to indoor pollution, which can be directly related to the use of household/chemical based cleaners.
- The hazardous chemicals are known contaminates to ground and surface water, impact septic systems, enter storm water and cause fish kills, injure garbage collectors, and add to the flammability and toxic effects of house fires.
