7 Ways To Keep Your Nursery Clean Without Toxic Chemicals

Force of Nature is a safe cleaning product for nurseries

It’s one of the laws of nature…curious babies and toddlers are like magnets, magically drawn to the grossest messes.  Doing things like playing in the dog’s water dish, grabbing the kitty litter or investigating the diaper pail are all in a day’s work for our little ones.  With all the cleaning up we do around them, it can be a huge challenge to keep our little explorers safe from toxic chemicals. Another problem is that products labeled “natural” aren’t necessarily safe cleaning products.

“Natural” Doesn’t Mean It’s A Safe Cleaning Product

Even cleaning products called “natural” can be filled with toxic fragrances, dyes, preservatives, allergens & irritants.  In fact, while they can be safer than conventional cleaners, many so-called “natural” cleaners from top brands contain toxic chemicals.  That’s because there are no federal regulations that dictate standards for cleaning products labeled as “natural”.  Many of these products contain botanical-based ingredients like thymol that sound safe but that are actually known allergens. Another example is methylisothiazolinone, a preservative very common in “natural” cleaning products. This chemical is associated with skin allergies & rashes, inhalation toxicity, organ toxicity & neurotoxicity.

Fragrance chemicals should also give you a reason to re-think your cleaning products. Fragrance chemicals can pass through the skin and enter the blood stream. They are manufactured from petroleum and coal tar and are classified as carcinogens, hormone disruptors, neurotoxins, skin and respiratory irritants. The fragrance industry is self-regulated, and the one word “fragrance” on a label can actually hide a cocktail of toxic ingredients. Most fragrances contain phthalates, which are not listed on labels, to make the scent last longer. Phthalates are associated with endocrine-disruption, cancer, reproductive & developmental toxicity and respiratory problems. And you can’t assume natural fragrances are any safer than the synthetic ones.

Luckily, there is a better option. Force of Nature is a small appliance that turns salt, water & vinegar into a cleaner and sanitizer that’s as effective as bleach but with zero toxic chemicals.  It’s an EPA registered disinfectant that kills 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew.
