Low-Tox Cleaning Products For Your Home

There are so many benefits to using low-tox cleaning products around your home (and office). Say goodbye to the products containing chemicals which may be harmful to your health and improve the environment around you by grabbing one of these natural ranges.

Many chemicals in generic, mainstream household cleaners are seriously bad news and totally unnecessary. One repeat offender is known as Quats (Quarternary Ammonium Compounds), found in disinfectants and fabric softners. Quats can trigger dermatitis and intense asthma in some people, even if you are not prone to either of these – and this is just one of the concerning ingredients used!

There are many ranges now available even from the supermarkets that use ingredients derived from natural sources with less toxic chemicals. We share eight we love which will make your house and office sparkly clean and, most importantly, are human-friendly causing less havoc to your health.
