Why I Won’t Use Mrs Meyers Clean Day

Is Mrs. Meyers safe? Or toxic? You’ve probably figured out that one of my pet peeves is companies and products that claim to be ‘natural’, but in reality are not. Mrs. Meyers Clean Day unfortunately falls into that category. While claiming to be natural, healthy and ‘aromatherapeutic’, Mrs Meyers Clean Day products actually contain a number of unsafe and dangerous ingredients including endocrine-disruptors and cancer-causing chemicals.  There are so many better and safer options out there. Please don’t buy into the marketing scam that promotes Mrs Meyers Clean Day as this wonderful, safe, organically scented cleaning line. Because it’s a bunch of bull.

After doing gobs of research in my quest to find the best all natural laundry detergent , I discovered something rather shocking–that even products that I thought I could trust were either environmentally unfriendly, or bad for one’s health, or both.

Are Dryer Sheets Dangerous? What Toxins Could Harm Your Dogs?

Are dryer sheets dangerous? What toxins do dryer sheets contain that could harm your kids, your dogs or your family? Let’s investigate! Bounce supposedly produced the very first dryer sheets in 1975, which is why I don’t really ever recall my mom using them in my youth (that will date me!) In fact, I distinctly remember my mom saying “Don’t be ridiculous!” when I suggested she buy them (hey, I liked the way my friend’s clothes smelled…and I didn’t know what I know today LOL)  Dryer sheets were created to “solve” the problem of static cling in clothing, and prevent static electricity from causing clothes to “stick together” in the dryer.

 Phthalates’ Harmful Effects

Phthlates are nasty ingredients: dangerous, toxic and endocrine disrupting. Plenty of harmful effects. It’s pretty amazing, when you think about it. All you want is for your house to be clean (or at least somewhat clean!) So off you go to your local grocery store to pick up some cleaning supplies: maybe some Comet, Fantastik, maybe some Windex.  You’re all set, right? Well…until you learn about phthalates and phthalates harmful effects on the body.

So let’s pause for just one moment here. How do you know if your house cleaners contain dangerous chemicals, such as phthalates? And what are phthalates, anyway? Read more about Phthalates’ Harmful Effects : Household Cleaners
