Babies and cleaning products DO NOT MIX! 
  
H.O.P.E. wants churches and parents to know 2 things when it comes to church nurseries:

 

#1.

#2.

Infants and children are more susceptible to the toxic effects of ingredients in cleaning products than adults.

There are natural solutions for cleaning that a) work better and b) are safer for tiny humans.

 
 

Many cleaning products contain the following ingredients with dangerous consequences:

Ammonia: Fatal if swallowed; skin, lung, throat irritant; can cause blindness

Butyl Cellosolve: Irritation and tissue damage from inhalation

Formaldehyde: Known carcinogen

Hydrochloric Acid: Fatal if swallowed; concentrated fumes harmful

Naphtha: Depresses the central nervous system
Perchloroethylene: Damages liver, kidney, nervous system

Petroleum Distillates: Highly flammable; can damage lung tissue and nerve cells

Phenols: Extremely dangerous; suspected carcinogen

Propylene Glycol: Ingestion can damage kidneys, lungs, heart, and nervous system

Sodium Hydroxide (lye): Highly caustic. Contact can cause severe damage to eyes, skin, mouth, and throat; can cause liver and kidney damage
Sodium Hypochlorite (chlorine bleach): Contact can cause severe damage to eyes, skin, mouth, and throat; can cause liver and kidney damage; causes more poisoning exposures than any household chemical

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: Skin irritant

Sulfuric Acid: Dangerous. Can burn skin. Exposure to concentrated fumes can be carcinogenic

Trichloroethane: Damages liver and kidney
 

Tiny humans absorb these chemicals as they crawl on the floor / play mats, play with the toys and nap in the swings and cribs! 

But, there's hope!
