The Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization focused on the environment and public health, lists the safety information of common household products you use to clean your home. These products contain ingredients like carcinogens, asthma instigators, and poisons! Yikes! Many of the generic cleaners contain phthalates which interfere with hormones and are known carcinogens.
The answer is simple. Thieves Household Cleaner has NO Phthalates. Instead, it contains two different sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar. These all-natural and safe sulfates are considered surfactants, which means the Thieves Cleaner sticks to the surface, grabs the oil, and then washes it away easily with water.
It can be used on many different surfaces: counters, bathrooms, floors, toys, clothes, carpet, mirrors, windows, and more. Spot check a small area before you use your Thieves Cleaner on a new surface.
This cleaner is also incredibly cost effective. It is highly concentrated so you only need about a capful for every 2-3 cups of water! With this ratio, one small bottle will yield you about 29 16-oz spray bottles of safe, all-purpose cleaner... at just under $1 per spray bottle!
You will find that supporting your health saves you money with YL. You literally replace every thing under your counter with one bottle.
