In the days of yore when all I used were chemical bathroom cleaners and typical soaps and shampoo’s from the grocery store I constantly battled with ring around the bathtub, slimy tile walls and an absolutely discusting shower curtain.
How about you ?
I felt it was a never ending battle. I also struggled with how ill I felt after I cleaned because of noxious fumes from the typical cleaning products I was using. Not to mention how positively itchy I felt after using petroleum derived skin care.
I seriously itched a good portion of my life.
Being able to clean green of course altered the chemical portion of that completely.
Three non-toxic, biodegradable products
An all purpose cleaning product
and a scouring paste.
The most remarkable detail of using the above powerful green trio is that I could spray, scour, sanitize and mix all of these things together, without fear of a chemical melt down.
We all know that combining bleach and ammonia and other regular cleaning products is very very dangerous.
Mixing bleach and ammonia releases a gas so deadly it was once used as a chemical warfare agent. It can overwhelm a victim in less than a minute.
After I was introduced to green cleaning products I was then introduced to a non-soap bar for everyday bathing.
A positively delicious oatmeal, vitamin e, wheat germ oil product that was such a shift from the squeaky clean Ivory soap I grew up with, or the Irish spring soap my husband seemed to enjoy ( gosh I hated the smell of that stuff)
I could hardly believe the difference this product made in my life.
My new non-soap bar was lovely smelling, ph balanced, and non-stripping to the skin. It actually protects the skins acid mantle versus destroying it. I had horrific dry skin from using every day skin care products that were harsh, not ph balanced and derived from tallow ( animal fat ) and lye (the same thing that oven cleaners are made up of ).
I have introduced hundreds of people to this non-soap bar and they love it as much as I.
Here’s the deal
Soap products make soap scum – no other way to say it, soap leaves a horrific trail.
Use soap products you will have soap scum.
No more soap scum. Not to mention no more dry skin.
No soap scum and you almost have a self cleaning bathtub.
I have not had a bathtub ring since 1993!
Come over anytime and look!
With regard to the discusting plastic liners for your shower? Forget those.
I stopped using them ions ago.
I buy an all fabric cotton shower curtain – actually I buy 2 and wash one with the towels!
No more plastic touching my body, not more outgassing and no more mold.
