Manufacturers of traditional household cleaners are not required to list ingredients.
Lake Forest, IL (PRWEB) December 26, 2012
With Christmas passed and New Years on the way, and with people thinking about resolutions, a leading countrywide dealer of Ladybug steam vapor sanitization systems is encouraging shoppers to approach 2013 with an “out with the old, in with the new” attitude by disposing of their toxic household cleaning products.
1-800-GO-VAPOR.com today announced extended telephone hours to help educate people on the benefits of cleaning without chemicals. The company also announced that it is reducing the price of the popular chemical-free Ladybug 2150 steam cleaner from $1,049 to $999 to kick start the New Year.
“Ever wonder what’s in those cleaning products stored under your kitchen sink?” asks V. K. Dunlop of 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com. “You won’t learn a lot looking at the labels.”
That’s true because manufacturers of household cleaners are not required to list ingredients, so what you often see instead is vague descriptors like ‘dye’ or ‘fragrance.’
According to Dunlop, many cleaning products contain chemicals that are unsafe for human health.
“There are over 82,000 chemicals currently used in the U.S. in everyday products, and only 200 of these have been tested for safety,” she says. “Meanwhile breast cancer, autism, asthma, reproductive disorders and other health problems linked to chemicals are on the rise.”
Dunlop uses shower cleaning as an example.
“Scrubbing the shower is one of the most dangerous jobs you do around your home,” she says. “You probably wear latex gloves, use a bathroom cleaner with bleach from your local supermarket, and keep the window open to avoid the fumes. Those fumes are dangerous to anyone who inhales them.”
Part of the problem is that a many people looking to 'go green' have no idea where to start.
To help shoppers make the switch in 2013 to steam, 1-800-GO-VAPOR.com has extended its telephone hours. Shoppers can reach a live sales representative 7 days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. CST.
When equipped with Ladybug’s optional TANCS® technology, the Ladybug 2200S vapor steam cleaner and the popular Ladybug XL2300 vapor steam cleaner qualify as disinfection devices for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Est. No. 82121-WA-01).
According to Chuanwu Xi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan, "Scientific studies have found that biofilms can be up to 1000 times more resistant to biocide inactivation than are suspended microbes. It is extremely difficult to get rid of biofilms and kill them. The efficacy of the steam vapor system is important because even strong chemical disinfectants such as bleach when allowed 20 minutes of dwell time did not achieve the same degree of kill that the TANCS®-equipped unit accomplished in three seconds.”
