TIPS on Why Go Green:

(According to the EPA)

Why GO GREEN...

Did you know that a pesticide is added to many laundry detergents? This pesticide is also found in many household cleaning products that contain a disinfectant to kill germs.  It is found in household products used to clean mold and mildew from your shower or tub.  The additive is Chlorine Bleach.  Did you know that Bleach is a pesticide?  It is!

Why GO GREEN...

Do you know what would happen if you mixed other cleaning agents with ammonia?  Or, what would happen if you mixed two cleaners together and one had chlorine bleach and the other had ammonia or another chemical not listed on the label and there was a chemical reaction?  Never mix a chlorine bleach with any other household or cleaning product.  Doing so could result in harmful acids and fumes being formed.  These acids and fumes are harmful and could cause serious breathing problems or death.
