Right now, during the Coronavirus pandemic, disinfectants and other cleaners may be hard to come by. The ingredients used to make homemade cleaners, like bleach, rubbing alcohol, and hydrogen peroxide are challenging to find even when shopping online.
But is this constant use of chemical cleaners good for our health and the health of the environment?
Are Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products Better?
If you could get your hands on some chemical cleaners, should you even use them? While treating surfaces with chemical cleaners, some people experience headaches, dizziness, respiratory issues, or eye irritation. This happens primarily when they used in an area with poor ventilation.
But are “green” cleaners safer AND as effective as their chemical-laden counterparts?
As noted on WebMD:
“…the safety of green cleaners can depend on the ones you buy. Just because the word “green” is on the label doesn’t mean the product is free from health risks. “Green” refers to cleaners that have less of an effect on human health and the environment than traditional products. Beyond that broad term, the definition gets murky.”
So, what can you do if you want to steer clear of chemical cleaners and you can’t 100% trust the safety of cleaners labeled as “green”?
Does Steam Cleaning Kill Bacteria?
The most successful option available for non-toxic cleaning is harnessing the energy of steam. Steam cleaning effectively trades heat for chemicals without sacrificing power. When used correctly, steam can easily kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria, making it a safe, healthy, eco-friendly, all-natural way to clean your home from top to bottom. From your oven and toilet to your faucets and dishwasher, you can use a steam cleaner to quickly and effectively remove even the most stubborn gunk.
