By Suryan Organic & NaturalConventional floor cleaners contain toxic derivatives of benzene which can cause harm. But a 100% natural alternative can do the job while being beneficial to your health & environment.
In Bharat, it is customary to clean the floors everyday with a sweep and a floor mop. This is in contrast to western countries where generally floors are carpeted and cleaning the home/office is a far more tedious, time consuming, expensive and often ineffective. The sweep or jadu in local parlance is made from natural plant based fibers, and so is the mop which is generally an old rough cloth used to wipe the floors clean. However, the water used to clean the floors is mixed with chemical cleaners like ‘phenyl’. These chemicals are usually toxic derivatives of benzene which may have wide ranging side effects for those inhaling the smell and even more for those who come into contact with it. Synthetic ‘phenyl’ home cleaners are not only hazardous to health but also harmful to the environment.
Thankfully, there are natural alternatives and you don’t need to depend upon synthetic floor cleaners. One such alternative is a floor cleaner manufactured by Bansi Gir Gaushala. This cleaner is made using 100% natural and Ayurvedic ingredients which can disinfect your home or office, while being beneficial to health. It contains the following key ingredients –
1) Gomutra Ark – This floor cleaner contains Gomutra Ark which may not be noticeable from its smell, as it has a predominant smell of lemongrass essential oil. Various studies have demonstrated the anti-microbial properties of Gomutra Ark. Gomutra Ark also has natural acidic and cleansing qualities.
2) Neem – Neem also has natural anti-microbial properties. Neem is also known for its pesticidal and insecticidal properties. It helps to control fleas and mosquitoes and has also been known to repel termites and moths.
3) Lemongrass – Lemongrass is known for its natural anti-amoebic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and insect repellent properties. Lemongrass is popularly used in Aromatherapy to treat a range of health conditions, including respiratory diseases and induce freshness as well as relaxation.
