Hello there! This is a blog that gives you natural skincare tips, DIY skin recipes, talks about herbs, and flowers
Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great thanksgiving weekend. Forget the Windex, here’s a recipe for a natural, non-toxic homemade cleaner. It is inexpensive to make and you probably have the ingredients in your kitchen!
1 cup white distilled vinegar
*optional- 20 drops antibacterial essential oil(s) of your choosing
Such as: pine, lavender, tea tree, grapefruit, peppermint, rosemary, lemon or eucalyptus.(The essential oil(s) add extra cleaning power, elimanate germs, and masks the scent of the vinegar. Plus it smells great too!)
After you added your ingredient(s) pour into a spray bottle and shake.
Ammonia and why you should avoid it as much as possible
According to the Internet - Ammonia exposure can cause serious health problems. It will irritate and burn eyes, throat, and nose when inhaled. In higher concentrations it can produce severe coughing and choking fits. Prolonged exposure to ammonia in gas or liquid form can severely irritate the eyes and skin, and result in permanent scarring of the cornea and chemical burns on the skin and lungs. Using ammonia in enclosed areas is also dangerous, as is mixing the chemical with bleach, for the combination can produce extremely toxic chlorine gas.
Although ammonia exists in small quantities in the natural environment, chemical plants use sophisticated technology to extract it for industrial use. As these facilities often have huge quantities of dangerous substances like ammonia, chemical plant explosions often pose an immediate and potentially fatal danger to the surrounding community. Few people realize the daily risks of living next to one of these ticking time-bombs, and fewer still know what to do should the worst occur.
Ammonia spills and chemical plant explosions are one of the realities of life in the modern world, but should these accidents occur it is the duty of those responsible to provide help for those they injure. If they do not, the victims of these disasters need to take legal action in order to recover compensation for their pain and suffering. If you or someone you know endured injury or loss due to an ammonia accident, you need to contact an ammonia exposure attorney right away. The statute of limitations on your case is already running, and if you hesitate you could lose your chance for justice. Don’t risk your future.
