All purpose cleaners!

all purpose cleaning and disinfecting wipes

Love method products so I just had to link their page on house hold cleaning items.

Not only are conventional house hold cleaners harmful to the environment, but they are harmful to you.  Ammonia and chlorine are not only terrible to breath but potentially dangerous.  I know we have become a society driven by need to kill all bacteria!  Germ freaks!  Most germs are good, but that is a later topic.

Non-organic house cleaning products contain phthalates, these are endocrine disruptors.  You might say who cares I have no idea what phthalates or endocrine disruptors are really.   Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that interfere with normal hormone activity. Why should you care?  Endocrine system is a network of glands and hormones that regulate many functions.  The glands in this system are: pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, thymus, pancreas, ovaries and testes. 

Know anyone with thyroid problems, what about obesity, what about infertility or  even testicle or ovarian cancer?  No, then you are lucky.
