Room cleaning products in the home can be friends of hygiene
Every home always has some means for cleaning rooms and maintaining cleanliness. The market is full of liquid and solid products, gels, spray products, powders, tablets, soaps that safely and effortlessly remove stains and impurities. They often have a pleasant smell and guarantee hygiene and cleanliness. Most of these agents often contain unpleasant substances that many people do not like. Some products contain small amounts of heavy metals (nickel, cobalt or chromium) that cause irritation and allergies in some people. The acidity of these substances is around 11 pH, which is different from the acidity of human skin (which oscillates between 3 and 7 pH). That is why unpleasant reactions sometimes occur.
In Europe, several million cases are registered every year, mainly skin reactions to the detergents we use every day. Experts say that detergents are not dangerous, but they should always be used according to the instructions, i.e. correctly and in the recommended doses, and that they should not be mixed under any circumstances. For example, detergent for washing dishes and laundry in the machine are very aggressive and if they are used for hand washing, they can easily irritate the skin. A cocktail of different cleaning agents does not clean better and more efficiently. During mixing, chemical reactions and the release of dangerous gases occur, which can cause poisoning. It is wrong to overdo it with detergents. The laundry will then not be cleaner, but will only be more difficult to wash in water, and the environment will be more polluted. The amount of washing powder should be adjusted to the characteristics of the water. Hard water (with more limestone) requires more detergent and soft water – less detergent.
You should always read the labels of any cleaning product, no matter how well-known the product is
Always keep all chemical agents tightly closed and in a safe place away from children and heat sources. Never remove the label, and if it is indicated, be sure to tailor the gloves and study the symbols on the label. When using abrasive agents in the form of powder or cream (they contain small particles of quartz and marble, often varicin, hydrochloric acid, phosphates and disinfectants) for washing and scrubbing strongly dirty surfaces – always use rubber gloves and do not inhale fumes. When washing dishes by hand, it is recommended to use gloves. Abundant rinsing is necessary because statistics say that people who eat from hand-washed dishes over the course of 1 year swallow between 1 and 3 grams of chemical substances harmful to the body (which these detergents contain). Dishwasher detergents destroy 99% of bacteria, but are more aggressive (they contain hydrochloric acid, phosphates and substances that produce chlorine). Means for washing and disinfecting toilet bowls and sanitary ware are more acidic and alkaline than others, so the use of gloves is mandatory and inhalation of vapors is strictly prohibited.
Lower the seat if you are pouring cleaner into the toilet bowl
Leave the product to act according to the instructions and rinse thoroughly with water. Agents against clogged water and sewage pipes are the most toxic and that means the most dangerous. Never use these agents without protective gloves. Carefully pour the product into the tubes and in the indicated amount. Stay away from the toxic fumes and let it work as directed. Rinse again with water.
