How Toxic Are My Commercial Cleaning Products?

Human Health and Toxicology

The Scoop

For the last year or so I switched over from using commercial cleaners to clean my home and began using equal parts white vinegar and water and a few drops of eucalyptus pure essential oil in a plastic squirt bottle that I found at the Dollar Store. I was amazed to find how effective (and cheap) it was to clean your house with such basic ingredients. I loved that my daughter could help me clean the house and that there were no toxic fumes that I needed to worry about. Despite the benefits to using vinegar and water to clean my bathroom, kitchen, table, mirrors, etc I found that there were a few drawbacks. For me the biggest drawback was the smell. I HATE, HATE, HATE the smell of vinegar. I still remember hiding in my room when my Filipino grandmother mopped our wood floors with vinegar. It was putrid. So to switch over to using vinegar for cleaning my home was kind of tough. Using the Eucalyptus oil definitely helped with the smell but it definitely didn’t get rid of it. The second drawback was that as effective as the cleaner was there was just some things that it just wasn’t strong enough to handle. I have dealt with marks all over our kitchen table (pencil, pen, marker, crayon, etc) and kept telling myself I should find an old bottle of 409 (wherever it was hiding) and wipe down the table but I could never bring myself to go looking for it, or use it for that matter. There is also the matter of the bathtub. I don’t mind cleaning my house with one exception, I don’t do bathtubs. I just don’t like scrubbing them. So I make my husband do it and he uses the Comet Powder which smells like death in a bottle, if you ask me.

When Jen offered to let me test her Miraclean solution I jumped at the opportunity. Miraclean is an all purpose cleaner that is able to tackle everything from day to day cleaning tasks (even natural stone and glass) to hard to clean spots like carpet stains, rust and hard-water stains, upholstery and more!
