Why should you switch to SAFE Cleaners

The Natural Health Magazine reports there is a definite health connection to the hazardous chemicals in your home. Here are five prime examples:

a) All Purpose Cleaners (such as Fantastik or Formula 409): Many popular household cleaning solultions like Fantastik & Formula 409 contain a synthetic solvent and grease cutter called butyl cellosolve. This hazardous petroleum-based chemical can irritate your skin and eyes, and repeated exposure to it can cause permanent liver and kidney damage, and impair the body's ability to replenish blood supplyHealthy Alternative of Choice... Shaklee Basic-H All-Purpose Cleaner
b) Bathroom or Countertop Cleaners (such as Ajax or Comet): Traditional scouring cleansers like Ajax & Comet contain crystalline silica, an eye, skin and lung irritant, classified as "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen" by the National Institute of Environmental Health Science. Chlorine, commonly used, is also extremely harmful to the respiratory system.Healthy Alternative of Choice... Shaklee At-Ease Scouring Cleaner
c) Glass Cleaners (such as Windex or Glass Plus): Window cleaning sprays like Windex & Glass Plus contain ammonia, a suffocating gas, irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. Many like Windex and Glass Plus, contain butyl cellosolve, a NEUROTOXIN that's easily absorbed through the skin.Healthy Alternative of Choice... Shaklee Basic-H All Purpose Cleaner
d) Laundry Detertent (such as Tide, All, Gain, Dash, etc.): Most well known powders like Tide, All, Gain & Dash contain corrosives that can burn the eyes and skin. Other chemicals include sodium bisulfate (a corrosive that can cause severe eye, skin and respiratory irritation), ethoxylated alcohols (which may contain I-4-dioxane, which is "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.)Healthy Alternative of choice... Shaklee Basic-L Liquid Laundry Concentrate
e) Dishwashing Detergent (such as Cascade, Sun Light, etc.): Two of the best selling brands of automatic dishwashing detergents, Cascade & Sun Light, contain phosphates and chlorine - two extremely toxic chemicals. Phosphates released into the environment rob lakes and ponds of oxygen, leading to the suffocation of aquatic plants and animals. Chlorine fumes are highly irritating to the eye, throat and respiratory tract. Inhaling them can cause headaches, burning eyes, and breathing difficulties. Healthy Alternative of choice... Shaklee Basic-D Dishwashing Concentrate

Avoid using Antibacterial Soaps that make you SLUGGISH! Triclosan, a key chemical ingredient in anti-bacterial detergents and soaps, is thought to suppress thyroid hormone metabolism. When your metabolic rate drops, you feel sluggish because your body is not as efficient at turning food into energy. Shaklee Cleaners DO NOT contain triclosan. Use Basic-H in your bath... Use Basic-H to wash your dishes.... Use Basic-H for general cleaning... Don't delay any longer... change brands to Shaklee... save money by doing so... and
