CLOSED...Tropical Traditions Glass and Surface Cleaner Review + Giveaway

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Moms and dads are busy.

Tropical Traditions Glass and Surface CleanerWhen it comes to cleaning our house, we want cleaners that get the job done fast and right the first time. But what about safely?

Many of us are convinced that we need chemicals like bleach and ammonia to get our home clean. Pregnant women are are instructed to avoid the VOCs (volatile organic compound) of common household products like cleaners and paint, but what about exposure to your newborn baby, toddler, or preschooler? The nervous system and organs of young children are still vulnerable, so why would you want to use toxic cleaners around them?

A slew of research studies are coming out exposing the health hazards of household cleaners (see U.S. News article, EPA report, Women's Voices report). I can't imagine any parent will want to spray their kitchen counter or bathtub with octylphenol after reading these reports.

So, what is a concerned parent to do? You could make your own cleaners from natural ingredients like vinegar and baking soda. But if you aren't into mixing potions, there are natural cleaning products on the market if you know where to look.

Tropical Traditions makes a line of natural cleaners that won't pollute your indoor air or poision your family and pets. I recently reviewed the Glass and Surface Cleaner which was handy because my house has lots of mirrors and windows, plus a glass cooktop that is a pain to clean.

I am a little embarrassed to show you the before and after pictures of my cooktop, but for the sake of full disclosure here it is:

Tropical Traditions Glass and Surface Cleaner Review Tropical Traditions Glass and Surface Cleaner Review
Can you see the difference? This stuff is like magic! I did have to scrub hard to get the more caked-on stuff off, but I'd rather use my own elbow grease than some toxic solvent. I got a clean glass cooktop with the benefits of:
  • No ammonia, alcohol or harsh volatile solvents
  • 0% VOC (Volatile organic Compounds)
  • No rinsing required
  • Non-streaking
  • No fragrance or dye added
