TADgreen Inc.'s e-cloth Explains the Importance of Cleaning Chemical-Free with e-cloth

Cleaning is tedious and time-consuming, but the reality is that house cleaning is necessary. Not only does it make the home environment more enjoyable, it also makes it safer for those living there. Cleaning removes dust, mold, mildew, and bacteria that cause allergies and asthma attacks, illnesses, and other health problems. e-cloth's extensive assortment of high-performing, task-specific cleaning products are designed to meet these challenges and the toughest cleaning chores using just water and a cloth.

Cleaning chemical-free removes the problems without adding toxins to the home environment. It's no secret that chemicals are pervasive, but new studies are consistently proving that their long-term effects are detrimental. According to Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, "More than 30 years of environmental health studies have led to a growing consensus that chemicals are playing a role in the incidence and prevalence of many diseases and disorders in the United States, including: Leukemia, brain cancer, and other childhood cancers, which have increased by more than 20% since 1975." Cleaning chemical-free with e-cloth has never been more important, and
e-cloth cleans all hard surfaces in the home using just water and a cloth, eliminating the dangers of chemical exposures.

Cleaning with e-cloth Improves Indoor Air Quality
As noted by Healthy Child Healthy World, "The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. According to the EPA, indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times – and sometimes more than 100 times – higher than outdoor levels." Indoor air pollution comes from many sources, including chemicals in traditional household cleaners such as formaldehyde – a known carcinogen that triggers asthma symptoms – and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted as gases into the air.

No Chemical Residues Remain on Surfaces when Cleaning with e-cloth

A growing concern is that dangerous residues from cleaning products remain on surfaces. Chemicals in cleaners "are designed to bond with or attract dirt, so their residues continuously compound over and over again," (Cooper, 2013) meaning that they remain on surfaces indefinitely. These residues "can become airborne and inhaled, perhaps with consequences for asthmatic, allergic, or sensitive persons" (Cooper, 2013). Children are especially vulnerable to these residues "given their hand-to-mouth behaviors, floor play, and developing nervous and reproductive systems" (Kay, 2013). In fact,"[c]hemical exposures during this time period can disrupt normal growth and development" (Gilden, McElroy, Friedmann, Witherspoon & Paul, 2015).

e-cloth Provides a Better Clean
e-cloth cleaning products have been proven to remove dirt, grease, grime, and most importantly, over 99% of bacteria from all hard surfaces using just water. e-cloth commissioned the internationally-accredited Silliker Group (the leading food testing organization whose clients include McDonald's, Kellogg's, and Kraft Foods) to conduct microbiological research studies which tested the cleaning power of water and
e-cloths on hard surfaces contaminated by different common bacteria. Using just water, the results verified that e-cloths remove over 99% of bacteria, locking them away inside the cloths' fibers where the bacteria stay until the cloths are rinsed. It is proven that surfaces
are cleaner when cleaned with e-cloth and water.

e-cloth cleans better in less time with less effort than traditional cleaning products and protects what's most important ‒ family. For inquiries about or to place an order for e-cloth, contact ESSCO at
