Why is a raven like a writing desk?
There are a handful of answers, but why Lewis Carrol’s hatter was mad is simple: mercury poisoning.
When Alice in Wonderland was written, top hats were made with mercury. The hatters experienced continued exposure to the mercury fumes. Subsequently many were poisoned causing a variety of mental issues.
In honor of the 30th anniversary of Mad Hatter’s Day, a day to celebrate the quirky book character and being a little silly, we look at safer alternatives to a common household hazard: chemical cleaners.
Natural cleaning reduces chemical exposure & health risks.
We know eco-friendly products help to save the Earth. We also know eating healthy, natural food is better for us. However, being environmentally conscious isn’t just about preserving the natural world, but our man-made one as well.
Products used in our everyday lives shape our health. Cleaning your home reduces your risk of illness, but the chemicals commonly found in many of cleaning supplies can be just as harmful as a dirty house.
Extended exposure to chemical fumes causes respiratory irritation, headaches, and worsening asthma. Fret not. Alternative exist. Cleaning products with probiotics break down dirt and grime naturally. These products clean a variety of surfaces while being safe for your family. Probiotic cleaners are pet friendly too!
Take a lesson from the Hatter, use less chemicals. Clean naturally.
