Bad smells in your home can come from many things—bad food, spills, or dirty laundry —so having home odors is a common problem. A lot of people think that chemicals are the best way to cover undesirable odors. They try to chemically remove the odor, or try to cover up the stink with a different smell.
But chemicals are not the answer in this situation, as they don’t remove the smell and are bad for you, your home, and the environment. The good news is that you can remove these odors naturally, benefiting you in countless ways. Here are just a few.
1. You Aren’t Putting Chemicals into Your Living Spaces
Many of the chemical solutions for odor use chemicals like formaldehyde and phthalates. These chemicals are bad for you and bad for your home, as these chemicals and their fumes are toxic and cancer causing. It is common knowledge that formaldehyde is used in the embalming process and to prevent biological matter from rotting. So formaldehyde is not something to want in your home. Phthalates are just as bad. They are known to make babies and children extremely sick with just a small amount of exposure.
By using non-toxic green products, you keep these chemicals out of your home and away from you. In removing these, you can keep yourself and your family safe from the effects of these terrible ingredients, ultimately making you healthier.
2. You Are Using a Sustainable Product
Chemical odor removers are manufactured with artificial ingredients made through laboratory chemical synthesis. This means that these odor removers are dependent on man made processes. These processes turn the product into something unnatural, which can render the original components un-reusable at best and pollutants at worst.
In contrast, green and non-toxic deodorizing products use ingredients like salt, water, and essential oils to remove odors. So as well as being made from natural ingredients that will not harm you or the environment, these products are made from ingredients that are sustainable. After use, their ingredients are easily broken down to be used again.
3. You are Using a Product That Actually Works
As previously discussed, the chemical products people try to use to remove odors don’t actually remove the odor. They merely mask the odors with chemical scents, relying on polymers to cover but not actually get rid of the smell.
Non-toxic deodorizers work differently. The natural ingredients bond to the odor-causing particles and actually remove the smell by neutralizing it through a natural reaction. This natural reaction between odor particles and the salt or essential oils causes the smell to vanish and stay gone.
