Non-Toxic Window and Glass Cleaner with Thieves Household Cleaner

Soooo.... let's chat about windows. Sure, sure, I know that it may seem like a boring conversation, but, trust me-- it's not.

I bet you didn't know that most retail glass cleaners are super duper toxic, did you?

Glass cleaners can be packed full of chemicals to give us that streak free shine and crystal clear appearance, but those same chemicals may also decrease fertility, negatively impact growing children, cause respiratory symptoms, decrease the functionality of the nervous system plus a lot more.

How can this happen? Well, it's a long story, but the gist is that our cleaning products are largely self-regulated by the industry and there are very few rules about what is banned in home care products. But considering the consequences of some of these chemicals and that air pollution can be up to six times greater in our homes compared to outside-- this is definitely something we need to take seriously.

For a full list of how toxic your window cleaner may be, check out What's In Your Glass Cleaner or visit the EWG Cleaning Database for more info.
