Organic Bathroom Cleaners

Many of us do not realize how toxic our daily household detergents can be!

They contain chemicals, irritants, and pollutants that affect not only sensitive individuals, pregnant women, the elderly, pets, children, and wildlife, but all of us, too! Yet, they are sold in regular grocery stores as harmless products.

Conventional Cleaners 

Conventional detergents contain toxic ingredients and chemicals that are cheap to produce, harsh on us, the planet, and the environment. They are linked with asthma and respiratory damage, skin allergies and irritations, development and reproductive toxicity, posing cancer, and environmental hazards. You can check your current detergent's toxicity  EWG.org ratings

To keep our house a healthy place, we need to ditch conventional cleaning products and use natural ones! ​
❌ ​Besides many popular brands such as CloroxAjaxLysolMr. CleanArm & HammerUp&UpWindex, with products rated F- toxic by ewg.org, there are many "greenwashing" products around.

 

Greenwashing Cleaners

❌ Greenwashing companies are filling their “natural" products with synthetic petrochemical, oleochemical emollients, thickeners, detergents, fragrances, and preservatives.

Brands such as MethodSafewayGreen Works (a Clorox company), Babyganics, and Mrs.Meyer’s are still classified as toxic by ewg.org, with products classified D and F. ​

❌ Many "natural cleaners" contain controversial ingredients mixed in their almost natural formula such as preservatives, dyes, fragrances, surfactants, bleach, alcohol, quats, hydrogen peroxide, or any other harmful chemicals. 

Methylisothiazolinone:  preservative skin sensitizer, linked to allergies, lung, neurological, and organ toxicity. Plus it is very toxic to aquatic life. Found in BetterLife Brand! Check at the bottom of the page the greenwashing brands.

Since there is no government regulation of the words: “organic” or “ natural.” ​We need to buy USDA-certified organic products and when not available we need to carefully read the labels.

That’s why we need to have the right information that allows us to buy a better detergent to protect us, our family, pets, and the environment.  Use your nose and eyes. Read the ingredients list. Avoid fragranced products and colored liquid products.

Miessence  Household Cleaning 

🍃BioPure is a highly concentrated, all-natural household and industrial cleaner containing powerful probiotic bacteria, antioxidants, and enzymes that break down grease, grime, and dirt and neutralize odors.
🍃 BioPure means cleaning without chemicals and its living benefits continue to work even after the initial application.

The probiotic properties of BioPure ensure it is eminently safe for humans and the environment, and uniquely effective as a surface-active agent to ionize and digest organic matter for surface cleaning and odor reduction. Can be used safely in septic systems and is fully biodegradable.

🍃 BioPure can be used as a general-purpose household cleaner, for floors, kitchen surfaces, mold and mildew areas, and bathrooms. BioPure is a probiotic cleaning liquid and works differently from anti-bacterial products, which attempt to kill bad bacteria. BioPure utilizes beneficial bacteria to regenerate and repopulate with healthy bacteria so they can dominate harmful, disease-causing (pathogenic) bacteria. This creates a natural, healthy and clean environment. When used consistently, BioPure prevents the re-emergence of pathogenic bacteria.

INGREDIENTS: aqua (purified water), certified organic molasses, naturally occurring probiotic bacteria and symbiotic yeasts, organic mineral powder, sea salt, certified organic oryza sativa (rice) bran extract, certified organic vanilla planifolia (vanilla) fruit extract

❌Not recommended brand:
New_Sprayer_Bottle_1200x1200.jpg

Not recommended brand:

Force Of NatureI don't recommend this because it has a controversial ingredient!

 

This is a disinfectant, not a household cleaner since its formulation generates a form of chlorine!!

 

Even though it is much less than in a conventional bleach it is still chlorine!

In fact, the company states: "Those individually allergic to Chlorine should avoid direct contact as it may cause irritation with symptoms of redness, itching, and swelling."

Even you are not allergic to it, you are still breathing and touching chlorine. I find chlorine to be also not eco-friendly!

Their chlorine is in their Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) and Sodium Hydroxide (aka Caustic soda) that is formed during the electrolysis of vinegar, salt, and water. 

Chlorine and caustic soda sound eco-friendly to you?

 

1. First sign of greenwashing.

They claim it is only salt, water, and vinegar.

Their full ingredients list is not easy to find!

But in reality, the ingredient list is reported in their safety data sheet:
