The new science of cleaning with microbes instead of
chemical cleaners and air fresheners
THE CHALLENGE OF CHEMICAL CLEANERS
By poisoning the environment with harmful chemicals and indiscriminately eliminating good germs, we are not only contributing to rising levels of asthma, allergies and migraines but to obesity, negative effects on growth, brain development, intelligence and coordination that will last far into the future. (Royal College of Medicine, 2016)
SWAPPING SCIENCE FOR CHEMICALS
MICROBIAL CLEANERS EXPLAINED
WHY MICROBIAL CLEANERS ARE BETTER
Microbial cleaners are also safer than their conventional counterparts because they use simple and organic ingredients like corn, baking soda and sugar, along with a microbial/ enzyme blend that is naturally existing and not modified or manipulated in any way.
Unlike abrasive chemical cleaners, they are non-corrosive to surfaces and machinery. More importantly, there are no side effects to their use, whereas most conventional chemical cleaning products contain corrosive ingredients that can irritate eyes, skin and the mucous membrane and cause allergic reactions. In addition, long-term exposure can increase the risk for dermatitis and asthma, birth defects, lung disease and cancer.
