Cleaning the bathroom, someone’s got to do it and let’s face it, a sparkly clean bathroom feels so good.
The bathroom tends to be the smallest room in the home, which should mean cleaning is quick – but poor ventilation, high humidity and water use make it hard to keep clean. Regularly cleaning will help make your cleaning-life easier, and also help prevent more sinister problems like mould.
Why cleaning your bathroom without harsh chemicals is better
Improves indoor air quality
It’s estimated that indoor air is already 5 times more polluted than outside air, and adding chemicals from cleaning products in such a confined space pollutes the air further. This is particularly true for the smelly, strong chemicals found in bathroom cleaning products. In fact, a study recently published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine claims that regularly using household cleaning products could be as bad as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.
As we spend the vast majority of our time indoors, indoor air quality is important for a healthy home. Looking for ways to improve the quality of the air you’re breathing is especially important if you or your family members suffer from asthma or allergies.
Makes cleaning safer
Reducing chemical use anywhere in the home will ultimately make it a safer space to live, and it’s very important in a space where your skin is exposed to the surrounding environment - the bathroom.
Whilst cleaning, round 80% of the water we use flows straight down the drain. However, switching to a chemical-free way to clean will help reduce your household wastewater. No chemicals means no need to rinse away chemical residue. Simply fill your 500ml Trigger Spray Bottle with water and spray as you go.
Reduces household waste
No chemicals means no contaminated wastewater and no packaging waste. ENJO products are packed into a reusable laundry bag – meaning product and packaging that you wash instead of waste. Plus, ENJO products are reusable for 3 years and upcycled at the end of their useful cleaning life.
Protects fixtures and fittings
Certain chemicals (and the combination of certain chemicals) can cause damage or corrosion to materials, fixtures and fittings. Cleaning with just water and fibre technology removes that risk.
