Is your green cleaner really safer

The manufacturers of the "Green" cleaning product Simple Green's claim that it is non-toxic, biodegradable, non-hazardous, non-flammable, and non-corrosive. But the Material Data Safety Sheet for Simple Green reveals that the formula contains 2-Butoxyethanol -- a petrochemical solvent.
It is thought that 2-butoxyethanol contributed to the significantly shorter lifespan of Exxon Valdez clean-up workers, which is why Corexit 9527, which also contains the chemical was banned in the United Kingdom.

Here's an alternative: Shaklee's H2 (find it in our store). It's truly safe, nontoxic, and natural. That one product does my windows, counters, floors, bathtub, sinks, and pre-spots my clothes! And it's economical. $12.15 makes 48 gallons of cleaner!

Blessings in your Adventure,
