There are many ways to help protect the environment and a good first step is to start at home with the products that you use in everyday life. This is especially true with cleaning supplies and the products that are used for the toilet, as some traditional cleaners carry harmful chemicals that damage the environment.
What harmful chemicals are found in regular toilet cleaners?
- Hydrochloric acid
These substances have been identified as having a negative effect on natural waterways and are highly corrosive, shortening the lifespan of valves that are necessary for proper flushing. In addition, chemicals like ammonia and hydrochloric acid can kill helpful bacteria that assist in breaking down waste.
Another factor to be aware of is the harm to animal life through a substance such as formaldehyde when it gets into a natural water source. It causes mutations in wildlife due to it being a carcinogenic chemical.
To reduce environmental damage, we’d recommend switching out regular toilet cleaners for eco-friendly toilet bombs.
What are the benefits of eco-friendly toilet bombs?
A lack of harsh chemicals
One of the major benefits of sustainable toilet bombs is that they don’t contain any damaging chemicals. Our toilet bombs are made from vegan ingredients, which include bicarbonate of soda, citric acid, geraniol and linalol.
This makes the toilet bombs completely biodegradable, breaking down in water without causing any harmful effects.
Sodium hypochlorite, a common chemical found in toiler cleaner, has a reputation for being toxic and may cause irritation to the skin or trigger certain health conditions. Eco-friendly toilet bombs don’t contain any of these ingredients.
This decreases the likelihood of a negative body reaction during cleaning. We’d still recommend taking a safe approach and wash your skin thoroughly if it comes into contact with the product and you experience any irritation.
Another benefit of our sustainable toilet bombs is that they can be used in more than one environment. In addition to cleaning the toilet, they are suitable for cleaning drains.
All you need to do is drop one of the tablets into the designated area and let it bubble within the waterline. The natural ingredients have a powerful cleaning effect and leave behind a fresh smell.
