Ditch the All Purpose Cleaner with BLEACHDid you know chlorine bleach use has been linked to breast cancer? Neither did I. According to Breast Cancer Options, an independent non-profit and provider of breast cancer services, they recommend to avoid All Purpose Cleaners with bleach:
"Avoid using chlorine bleach for household cleaning or laundry. The chlorine in your automatic dishwashing detergent mixes with the food and steam to create a gas. When the dishwasher is opened and this gas comes out, it's highly toxic. The same is true even in laundry machines but at a lower level."¹
According to the National Poison Control Center website², 43,518 calls concerning bleach were reported in 2012. Using all purpose cleaners that contain bleach, or sodium hypochlorite are almost always dispensed in a spray bottle. Sodium hypochlorite poses many health risks including asthma and respiratory concerns, skin allergies and irratation, cancer, and environmental risks.³
