Some product sure sounds promising when it comes to removing stains, killing off bacteria and everything that you want in a cleaning product. However, how will we know that it can really protect your home and family away from the harmful stuff? While most products do their job description majority of them contain strong chemical substances that can be bad for you and your familys health.

Disinfectant Overkill: How Essential Oils Can Help

Report Warns Against Overuse of Household Disinfectants and Suggests Essential Oils as Alternatives

( author: Lisa Wade McCormick) The report by Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) — titled “Disinfectant Overkill: How Too Clean May Be Hazardous to Our Health” — cites more than 40 scientific studies that illustrate the health risks associated with chemicals found in kitchen cleaners, handy wipes, and other common cleaning products.

Companies are working hard to convince consumers, and especially moms, that they need to regularly disinfect every surface in their homes to protect their families from illness, she added. But that’s  simply not true and it may not be healthy.

A spokesman for the makers of household and industrial cleaners, however, says the industries products are safe when used as directed and calls it an extraordinary stretch to link the disinfectants to various health problems.

In its study, WVE assessed the potential health risks of five classes of disinfectants or antimicrobial chemicals

WVE’s report also outlines several “green” alternatives to cleaning products that contain harsh chemicals, including the essential oils of thyme, rosemary, clove, eucalyptus, and oregano.
