Watching television and social media over the past few months and seeing everyone stock up on toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and household disinfectant made me wonder if anyone bothers to read labels.
Label reading for consumable products has taken off over the past several years especially when news of toxic ingredients like Glysophate, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Arsenic, and many others have been added into our food supply for years, and maybe the cause of health problems including the spike in cancer cases.
The same can be said for household products including hand sanitizers and household disinfectant cleaners.
There are many disinfectant cleaners that contain toxic substances to humans including bleach, chlorine, quaternary ammonium, red & yellow dyes, and much more.
Many people are of the mindset that bleach is safe. Bleach is very irritating and corrosive to the skin, lungs, and eyes. As well, it has been known to burn human tissue internally or externally. On top of this- it may cause skin rash, extreme headaches, migraines, muscle weakness, abdominal discomfort, esophageal perforation, nausea and vomiting. In addition, it can damage the nervous system. People that have a respiratory problem should avoid the use of bleach because it can worsen especially people suffering from asthma and allergies. Covid 19 is an upper respiratory virus which also affects the lungs, so using a household cleaner with bleach, will only make matters worse, if in fact, you have the virus. Other symptoms may occur such as stinging sensation in the eyes and nose, coughing and breath shortness. Bleach fumes can accumulate and linger in poorly-ventilated homes. Indoor air becomes polluted with toxins, endangering the health of all those who breathe it in.
Chlorine is a naturally-occurring element with a strong, irritating odor that can be either a gas or liquid. Chlorine gas can be released if household bleach mixes with ammonia or other cleaning products. Household bleach does not contain pure chlorine. Chlorine is used to kill bacteria in drinking water and swimming pool water, and make pesticides, solvents, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic. When chlorine enters the body as a result of breathing, swallowing, or skin contact, it reacts with water to produce acids. The acids are corrosive and damage cells in the body on contact.
Americans are now eating five times as much food dye as we did in 1955. That statistic isn’t as surprising when you consider that since then food dyes have made more and more of our foods colorful-from breakfast cereals to ice creams. While natural colorants made from foods like beets are available, many manufacturers opt for synthetic dyes-which may have dangerous health consequences, particularly for children, according to a recent report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest. This is why the nonprofit Washington, D.C.-based consumer-watchdog group has asked the Food and Drug Administration to ban them. Such man-made food dyes appear in ingredient lists as a name of a color with a number following it: Blue 1 and 2, Citrus Red 2, Green 3, Red 3 and 40, Yellow 5 and 6. The three most widely used culprits-Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and Red 40-contain compounds, including benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl, that research has linked with cancer. Research has also associated food dyes with problems in children including allergies, hyperactivity, learning impairment, irritability and aggressiveness.
Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, also known as “Quats”, are potent disinfectant chemicals commonly found in disinfectant wipes, sprays and other household cleaners that are designed to kill germs. It is often the stuff that allows a product to claim to be antibacterial, as they are certified by the EPA as pesticides. In most cases, quats are total overkill for your everyday household cleaning needs. Unless you plan on doing some open-heart surgery on your kitchen table, there is no need for quats to sterilize the surfaces in your house. Quats are lung irritants and can contribute to asthma and other breathing problems. They irritate skin too – and can lead to rashes. This is one reason why packages of antibacterial wipes strongly recommend washing your hands after use. A factor that really takes the convenience out of using a wipe in the first place. In addition, there is emerging science that is showing exposure to quats is harming sperm quality, reducing fertility and resulting in birth defects in mice. We simply do not know yet whether these impacts could occur in humans as well. Lastly, the widespread overuse of quats is creating superbugs – that are resistant both to quats and other antibiotics, which is problematic on so many levels.
So, that leaves us with natural and safe household cleaners and disinfectants. One that I found very intriguing is called Sol U Guard from Melaleuca.
Most people have heard of Melaleuca and it has been in business since 1985 making safe, natural American made products.
The natural cleaner that they have, called Sol U Guard, has in it essential thyme oil combined with citric acid.
Thymol, which is an organic compound found in plants, is the key ingredient to the effectiveness of essential thyme oil being such a great natural cleaning agent.
Combine essential thyme oil with citric acid, and you have a winning combination.
Citric acid, by itself, kills bacteria, mold, and mildew.
Some of the other benefits from essential thyme oil include, preventing hair loss, getting rid of acne, lowering high blood pressure, removing toe nail fungus, and many more.
On top of that, Thymol is just one of six organic compounds found in essential thyme oil.
The EPA has recently come out with a list and have added Sol U Guard as one of their approved products to kill the Coronavirus.
That is pretty impressive. And for just $10.00 for a 16 fl. oz bottle, you cannot beat it.
Sol U Guard gets an A+ as a safe and natural household cleaner which includes destroying Covid 19.
