*Sniff* ahhhh.... the fresh smell of harmful chemicals
Isn't it amazing how much time people spend cleaning their homes, trying to kill all the bacteria to keep their families safe? Happily spraying and wiping, leaving the room, satisfied with it's "nice, fresh, clean" smell. The irony is that they are doing more harm than good. Now they have deposited chemical residue all over their home and their family is now inhaling and ingesting it.
The marketers have it right, make people think bacteria is dangerous and our product will sale. A truly clean smell, is really NO smell.
www.Care2.com/channels/solutions/home/334 has some great recipes for all natural cleaners. If you have to have a fresh clean smell, add essential oils to your cleaners. You body and your earth will thank you for it.
