Safer Bleach Alternatives

In this period we keep our house cleaner, disinfected and we wash our laundry more often. 

❌"Conventional Chlorine Bleach" is a disinfectant that’s been around for almost a hundred years, but that aside there are lots of problems with using bleach. First, it’s not an effective cleaner, so you’ll need to use something else to perform that task. It also comes with very slow contact times (the amount of time a surface must stay wet to kill germs). Finally, it is irritating to the skin, eyes and breathing it in all day long isn’t great for your lungs. 

❌ BLEACH AND QUAT-BASED DISINFECTANTS Sodium hypochlorite – found in chlorine bleach – and quaternary ammonium compounds, also called quats are linked to respiratory harm and other serious health effects.

DO NOT MIX any laundry products with Chlorine, Ammonia, or any other toxic chemicals.

✅ Hydrogen peroxide is a great disinfectant and a great alternative to traditional bleach or alcohol.

I keep it in a spray bottle and spray it on many surfaces including the kitchen counter, handles, doorknobs, bathroom, and cell phones. ​

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

Now you have all you need to know for a safer, organic laundry experience. Wash your garments at home in your organic laundry detergent whenever is possible and when you need professional laundering to choose only eco-friendly dry cleaners that use the CO2 method.
