Allergies and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

Obviously, most store-bought cleaners are created by using many toxic chemicals. That's the reason they are required to use those warning labels we see about not breathing in the fumes. That should be a huge red flag! These harmful irritants can be even worse inside the confinements of your home, in fact, according to the California Environmental Protection Agency:

"The use of certain common cleaning products and air fresheners can cause an increase in indoor concentrations of both gaseous and particle air pollutants when those products are used in the presence of ozone."

So, always keep you home well ventilated with clean outside air and switch over to natural cleaning products ASAP.

The Environment.

Chemical cleaners make their way into our air and water supplies everyday. Natural cleaning products should be 100% biodegradable and also keep your busiest household areas and the air around them clean. Brands like PUUR Home also offer a concentrated refill that will allow you to reuse your plastic spray bottles over and over again. Do your part by reducing the chemicals you release into the environment and enjoy a better quality of life at the same time.

Save Money.

Most people have the misconception that using natural cleaning products can be more expensive. Not only are natural cleaning products less expensive to make than many traditional chemical based cleaners, many come with a concentrated refill that will allow you to re-fill your spray bottles for pennies on the dollar. Be smart and plan ahead by mixing your own natural spray cleaner re-fills.

Know Your Ingredients.

DId you know that government regulations (FDA) do not require ingredients to be listed on any cleaning products? According to the Environmental Working Group (}:

"Cleaning products, unlike foods, beverages, cosmetics and other personal care products, are not required by federal law to carry a list of ingredients. This means that manufacturers have no reason to avoid risky chemicals that happen to clean well – even if they can trigger asthma attacks or skin rashes or are linked to cancer."

PUUR Home lists its ingredients right on the label, but here they are for your convenience:

Ingredients: purified water, proprietary plant-based nonionic surfactants, coconut and pine-based resins, glucose-based sequestering agents and, except for our unscented products, natural essential oils.

The benefits of using biodegradable and nontoxic natural cleaning products have great implications beyond your health and that of your family. Imagine if each one of us used only natural cleaning products, it would quite literally make the world a far better place to live.
