Green for the Win: Why Natural Cleaning Products Are Better

Posted: March 15, 2018

Eco-Max was created so both retail and commercial consumers could clean their homes and businesses without the use of harsh chemicals. Since then, we’ve worked really hard to develop green, natural cleaning products that work really well, at a price anyone can afford.

The reality is, however, that many people still choose chemical products over natural ones. Why? For starters, they’re often advertised for their strength and convenience. In a world where stress is high and time is short, words like quick, powerful and fast-acting often entice those with a heavy ‘To Do’ list. Others simply believe these products do a better job.

Unfortunately, what many don’t consider is the harmful effects chemical cleaners can have on their families and themselves. Below, are a few reasons to consider natural cleaning products the next time you need to stock up.


  1. They’re safer to use.

Wear latex gloves when cleaning your bathroom? If you haven’t noticed already, many commercial and household cleaning products come with labels that read hazardous and come with heavy warnings about possible explosions, or burns, allergies or other irritations to the skin and eyes.

Natural cleaners don’t contain corrosive ingredients, so you never have to worry about them combusting or being absorbed by the skin.

  1. You don’t have to worry about breathing them in.

Recent studies show that regular use of cleaning products may increase your risk of lung disease, including asthma. Cleaners sit on surfaces and linger in the air, meaning other family members are also at risk, too.

Using natural cleaning products can reduce these risks tremendously, as there are no dangerous chemicals to breathe in.


  1. Your air quality is better.

 No one has ever inhaled a chemical cleaner and said, “That smells so good.” In fact, many people complain of the strong odor, while others suffer from headaches or even the taste of the cleaner getting to the back of their throats. Synthetic fragrances merely mask the chemical smell, but can cause the same types of symptoms.

Natural cleaners are made from 100% pure ingredients that aren’t overpowering, and won’t leave you feeling sick from using them.


  1. They don’t pollute drinking water.

Chances are, you never thought about covering your tap or drinking water supply when you were cleaning the counters and sink. But the truth is, the chemicals in your cleaning products could be polluting your clean water, making it unsafe to consume.

Because natural products don’t pollute anything, you can use them freely anywhere in your home, without worrying about harmful consumption.


  1. They’re safe for pets.

Your pet probably spends a lot of time on your home’s floor. Any time you use regular cleaning products to clean your floors—or detergents to wash their blankets or beds—your subjecting them to possible health risks. That’s because the ingredients in the cleaners get onto their fur and absorb in their skin. And since they’re lower to the ground, they are affected much faster.

Using natural cleaners eliminates these risks for your pet and the rest of your family.
