11 fantastic reasons why you need to start green cleaning today
Here at Sheiner’s, we have seen a huge increase in the demand for eco-friendly cleaning products. As result we now sell a large selection of products that are non-toxic and safe for the environment.
But why is everyone making the switch? Well, there are many benefits to using eco-friendly cleaning products, and here are our favourites:
Less toxins released into the environment
This is a big one. We make our hardwood floor cleaners non-toxic because understand that if even a small amount ends up in the environment then it could create a big problem in the ecosystem.
It is easy for this to happen too. What happens when you dispose of the empty bottle? You might rinse it out or throw it in your bin? If these break and make their way into a stream then the consequences could be huge.
Better for your health
All those chemicals aren’t good for your health either. When you spray around normal cleaning products, small droplets will be carried in the air and enter your lungs.
With toxin-free cleaning products like ours, you don’t have to worry! There is nothing in them that is bad for your health so if you breathe in a few droplets it doesn’t matter.
Less contamination of water
Contaminated water is a big problem for water treatment plants. On top of that, it is a big problem for wildlife too. Toxic cleaning products have been known to leak into lakes and rivers during manufacturing and kill large numbers of plants and animals.
Eco-friendly products avoid that. They are safe for plants and animals so if they make it into the water stream then it is of no major consequence.
Less indoor air pollution
Indoor air pollution is a big problem even before you start spraying around a load of chemicals. We spend large amounts of time in our homes, so we want that air to be good quality.
If you want to breathe clean and healthy air, then you need to make the switch to products with no toxic chemicals in them. It will benefit everyone that walks into your house.
Protect your pets and children
No one likes to think about the consequences of their child or pet accidentally drinking something from the cleaning supplies cupboard. But with Sheiner’s eco-friendly range, you don’t have to worry.
Obviously, you want to avoid this situation, but if it did happen then our products are safe. Far safer than the toxic equivalents anyway.
Less harmful to your skin
Most cleaning products recommend that you wear gloves as they can cause irritation or even chemical burns. Yet eco-friendly cleaners are far less aggressive in this sense.
Using gloves is good practice, but natural cleaning supplies are unlikely to cause you any issues if you get them on your skin. Natural ingredients and toxin-free products are the way to go.
Better for people with allergies
We’ve discussed indoor air pollution already, but this is an even bigger concern for people with allergies or respiratory conditions.
Many normal cleaning products can cause allergy flare ups and breathing difficulties among sufferers, but eco-friendly alternatives are less likely to do this.
Less aggressive on surfaces when used regularly
Many of the chemicals in traditional cleaning products work by being harsh on your floorings and furniture. But when used repeatedly this can result in damage to these surfaces.
Natural substitutes are gentler without loss of cleaning power. This means you are kinder to your surfaces and increase their lifespan.
The smell of toxic cleaning products can be overwhelming. You can feel those chemicals hitting your nose and throat every time you breathe.
Eco-friendly products provide a softer fragrance that makes cleaning a more pleasant and less intense sensory experience.
Fewer risks of injury
With all non-toxic components comes a decreased risk of injury. We’ve talk about skins irritation, but chemical products can cause burns and eye damage too.
It is easy for small amount of cleaning fluid to splash into your eyes. With chemical-based products this could have serious consequences. Eco-friendly ones would be far less severe.
All eco-friendly products in our range are also biodegradable. This means that when you throw them away you know that they will not be hanging around on the planet forever.
Few traditional cleaners are biodegradable and will exist in landfill for hundreds of years. This leads to increased possibility of leaking into water sources and habitats.
