When thinking about cleaners, dish soap and house hold cleaners, it's important to really look for one's that are not made from petrochemicals. So look for one that is plant based instead. On the product themselves they will often say plant based. So that's one way that you can really tell. It's also good to avoid chlorine bleach, because the chlorine is very toxic and can also create allergies and has been linked to asthma. And lastly when thinking about household cleaners and dish soap for your home, one of the things that is important to remember is to look for products that are fragrance free or only use natural fragrance. Synthetic fragrance can be made from hundreds of chemicals and are not required to be disclosed, so when you look at the label, simply say fragrance, so it is important to try to look for ones that either list what the fragrance is usually in natural fragrance is essential oils or plant based.
