As it turns out housework may be hazardous to your health after all. So ok, the excuse might not get you out of having to actually take care of the house, but it should get you to think about what in the world could be so hazardous about housework.
Have you ever really thought about the products you use to clean your home, your bedding, your family’s clothes? The well-known manufacturers you pick up every week because they are familiar are also frequently filled with chemicals that put your family and their health at risk. Environmental poisoning is something that can never happen to “our kids”… OR so I thought! I was totally unaware that any potential long-term health consequences were associated with the exposure to household chemicals in my air fresheners, floor cleaners, germicides, bug sprays, laundry products and even general all-purpose cleaners. I had wrongfully assumed the products I chose were safe to use.
After all, they were manufactured by well-known brands and sold in the stores we frequented. It never occurred to me to consider the possibility that my family’s health might be at risk by chemicals IN those clothing products themselves.
Statistics from the Jacques Cousteu Society have found that more than 60% of the polluting and dangerous chemical ingredients in home cleaning products harm the environment: this means they are harming my family and yours and the environments in which we live, breath, work and play. Ignorance is indeed bliss, but ignorance can kill! Denying the truth harms us and the people we love.
Once I learned that the household products I had been using contained hazardous and toxic chemicals, I went looking for a natural solution and I found Shaklee.
Shaklee is company that has been a front runners in the fight against pollution since 1956. It’s not a fly-by-night or a trend. It was founded by Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee (yes, a real-life, practicing doctor), and his Basic-H formula that was developed all the way back in 1958 is a non-polluting, non-toxic, biodegradable (earth-friendly) cleaner. Dr. Shaklee was caring about and creating people/earth friendly products before it was trendy! The entire Get Clean line of Shaklee products have radically changed the landscape of cleaning without harm.
Today Shaklee, offers a full range of cleaning products for the home and work environments that are all organic, non-toxic, non-magnetic, non-flammable, non-volatile. That means they are not only safe to use on and around your family but they are also great for the environment and they are a financially responsible choice because you save money by investing in longer lasting effective cleaning solutions.
I switched to Shaklee because I cared about my family, I cared about the environment and I cared about making financially responsible choices. I had to make a choice to do something that was better for my family and you have to make a choice today about the types of cleaning products you use. Do you want to continue knowing your housework may be hazardous to your health and the well-being of your entire family, or is it time you switched to a product that’s safe, effective and economical? The choice is yours.
