The Problem: Many common household cleaners contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to you, your family, your household, and the environment.
Ensuring your spaces are clean is essential to create a safe, welcoming, and productive environment. To achieve this idea of ‘clean’ that has been embedded in our minds, we often find ourselves using harsh chemical cleaners that end up on our surfaces and in the air we breathe. In the era of living green and toxic-free, more and more people are moving to natural cleaners as an alternative.
Chemical cleaners may get the job done, but not without an accompanying list of negative side effects. Chemicals found in cleaning products, such as Volatile Organic Compounds and Ammonia can cause an array of side effects including irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, nausea, headaches, migraines, dizziness, skin issues, allergic reactions, and more. The list goes on and on.
If the majority of household cleaners have this many harmful effects, why do we continue using them in our home, around our families, around our children, and around our pets?
The Solution: Green Cleaning is a win-win for everyone— you, your family, your household, and the environment!
In the era of COVID-19, cleaning is more important now than ever. The term “green cleaning” refers to cleaning methods and products with environmentally friendly ingredients and procedures which are designed to preserve human health and environmental quality.
Some people think of “green cleaners” as less than or not as effective. That statement couldn’t be farther from the truth.
For example, VSE xTREME Antimicrobial Multi-Surface Cleaner is a “green cleaner” that’s highly effective and has been tested on numerous organisms for over a decade. It safely replaces toxic and corrosive chemicals that are commonly used in households today. Through its active ingredients consisting of Lemon Grass Extract and Citric Acid, VSE xTREME safely and effectively replaces the use of dangerous compounds like glutaraldehydes, formaldehides, and quaternary amines.
VSE xTREME is EPA Exempt under minimal risk pesticides exemption FIFRA section 25(b). Additionally, this “green cleaner” is 100% biodegradable and approved as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. It’s even safe for food-contact surfaces. Today, VSE xTREME is used by school districts, municipalities, correctional facilities, and more.
Why continue to use harmful, toxic, and corrosive chemicals in your home when there’s clearly a better, cleaner, more natural alternative? VSE xTREME gives you the same (if not better) results, without all the negative side effects of harsh, toxic chemical cleaners.
This is just one example of the numerous “green cleaners” out there. We encourage you to take a look at the chemicals in your household cleaners and consider a cleaner, “greener” alternative.
