6 Perks of Using Natural Cleaners in Your Home
August 7, 2021
The symptoms that come along with using harsh chemicals to clean your home are a thing of the past. While most natural cleaners claim to be “eco” or “green,” there is no official regulation on who can and can’t market their products using “natural” words. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires cleansers to list “potentially dangerous ingredients,” while Wonder Spray goes beyond that and identifies their cleansers as bleach, alcohol, and ammonia-free. Their spray is also EPA approved free of other harmful contaminants, additives, and buffers. For the environmentally-conscious person who cares about keeping germs at bay, here are the top six reasons you should consider using EPA-approved eco-cleaners.
Better for the Environment
Packaging waste is a massive issue for corporations. Many corporations have realized the importance to their customers of striving for 100% recyclable products. Some companies attempt to do zero-waste packaging and sell their product alone with no package. For example, Dr. Burd’s Wonder Spray Home Rescue comes in a recyclable bottle, and the pathogen-killing liquid breaks down into saltwater after minutes, so there is no need to wipe away any chemicals that will harm the environment.
Resources like energy and materials are used wisely for EPA-approved products because they adhere to higher standards. While you might not get all of the fancy packaging common to many commercially popular products, you are saving the environment. A bonus is that natural cleaning companies typically don’t make you pay for all of the bells and whistles; the most important thing is the germ-killer inside the bottle. Products shipped in bulk also save you another trip to the grocery store, which saves on gas. Double win!
Minimized Health Risks
Harsh cleaning supplies contain hazardous toxic chemicals that can cause burns, poisoning, and even lung damage. Some toxic cleaners are also known to trigger asthma attacks and sensitivities in immunocompromised people. Dr. Burd’s Wonder Spray Home Rescue Disinfectant contains a natural cleaning ingredient called hypochlorous (HOCl), found naturally in white blood cells of the human body. Wonder Spray electrochemically engineers HOCI to mimic the acid produced inside the body to fight germs. Once the HOCl solution dries, it turns into harmless saltwater.
Gentle on Sensitive Skin
Most strong household cleaners contain some intense and uncalled-for ingredients like formaldehyde and bleach. These ingredients can wreak havoc on sensitive skin and cause serious damage if they get near the eyes. Strong ingredients, like bleach, are also known to cause burns and rashes, even when using gloves to clean. EPA-approved cleaners are less likely to cause skin, eye, and throat irritation due to their non-toxic nature.
Family and Pet-Friendly
Wouldn’t you prefer cleaning products that have deep-cleaning properties and are 100% safe for your family and pets? Natural cleaners are strong enough to be used for cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting businesses and homes. What’s more, EPA-approved household cleaners are highly effective at killing harmful pathogens, all while keeping your family out of harm’s way because chemical-related injuries are one less thing to worry about, especially with kids or pets in the house.
One misconception is that natural cleaners do not clean as well as ones with harsh chemicals, but this is untrue, as Wonder Spray is certified to kill bacteria and viruses like SARS-CoV-2. Buying an EPA-approved cleaner is paramount for you and your family’s safety. Since harsh cleaners are not regulated for safety, there is no way to tell what ingredients you are applying on your surfaces or contacting your body, but with Wonder Spray, you know exactly what is in each bottle.
Overall, natural cleaners are becoming increasingly popular since the COVID-19 pandemic, as more people are using harsh cleaners on their hands and their home’s surfaces. Harsh cleaners contain chemicals that cause health and environmental issues. Dry skin, rashes, and coughing are no longer acceptable when it comes to sanitizing your home. Cleaners with harsh chemicals also have possibly unknown toxic effects on the body. It is scientifically proven that EPA-approved cleaners are a better choice for overall health and safety. Wonder Spray is doctor-approved and family-friendly, and you will not have to play a guessing game when reading our ingredients.
