The One Product You Should Remove From Your Home
by April Anderson
With so many great alternatives on the market today,
why would you still be using any product
containing Chlorine Bleach
at home or in your business.
And don't be fooled by ingredient trickery
many of the toxic household cleaning products
under your cupboard or in your bucket
contain chlorine bleach
aka "sodium hypochlorite"
what is the side effects of using Chlorine Bleach
Irritation of the Lungs......not so bad, right?
dangerous for people suffering from heart conditions
or chronic respiratory problems such as asthma or emphysema.
And to top it off.........
risks are compounded
when the cleaners are used
in small, poorly ventilated rooms,
such as the bathroom.
Do you or your staff wear the proper masks
to work with products containing Chlorine Bleach
it's highly corrosive
it can damage, not irritate
skin, eyes and other membranes.
Do you or your staff wear the proper safety glasses,
industrial gloves, and protective clothing
to cover exposed skin
chances are, that would be a No, not really
Now Chlorine bleach is
considered by the EPA to be
"simple and effective"
when properly used
in a well-ventilated space
with protective gloves
and in appropriate quantities
what they consider well-ventilated
and if they would change their view
if they were the one's cleaning bathrooms
day in and day out with chlorine bleach based products.
And just a little side note
The Children's Health Environmental Coalition
singles out chlorine bleach as the cleaner
most commonly swallowed by children
Did you know Chlorine Bleach can be fatal if swallowed.
Now let's talk about what happens
when you do a little bit of accidental mixing
Which of these items listed below
can be safely mixed with Chlorine Bleach?
Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Other Products containing Chlorine Bleach
sodium hypochlorite or hypochlorite.
Chlorine Bleach cannot be mixed with any of the above
potential lethal vapours will form
Chlorine itself is not flammable,
but it can react explosively or form explosive compounds
with other chemicals such as turpentine and ammonia.
It would be safe to say Chlorine Bleach
should not be mixed with any other product.
How do you know
if you have accidentally mixed Chlorine Bleach
with another cleaner
here are the signs that all is not right....
Burning sensation in the nose, throat, and eyes
Nausea and vomiting
Burning pain, redness, and blisters
on the skin if exposed to gas,
skin injury similar to frostbite
if exposed to liquid chlorine
Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
may appear immediately
if high concentrations of chlorine gas
or may be delayed
if low concentrations of chlorine gas
Fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema)
within 2 to 4 hours
I had 6 of the above symptoms
immediately after the toxic cloud formed
and yes I was fully dressed
and industrial gloves
They did not protect me
So why is it you feel you need to use Chlorine Bleach in your home and business?
