Product Description

I bought these on a whim at the store since I use other Seventh Generation products that work well.  After deciding to write a post about all of the green cleaners I use I needed to learn a little more about why some were more environmentally friendly than others.  I learned that phosphates and chlorine bleach are big no, no’s. Here’s why…

Phosphates

  • Can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea if ingested
  • Can cause severe skin irritation
  • Acts as a fertilizer, spawning overgrowth of algae in waterways eventually killing off fish and other organisms

Chlorine bleach

  • Highly caustic and may cause skin irritation and redness
  • Fumes can irritate eyes, nose and airways, and it can be fatal if swallowed
  • Reacts with other minerals and elements to form a host of dangerous toxins
  • Lingers in water or soil and takes many years to disappear

So, when I read the ingredients in what we WERE using in our dishwasher I decided it was time to make choices that were better for my family and the environment!
