Spray and wipe and wheeze

Spray and wipe and wheeze – Health & Wellbeing: “These substances irritate the airways, causing them to narrow, restricting the flow of air in and out of the lungs, and causing breathlessness and tightness in the chest.”

Personally, I find orange oil a good alternative. I still have some commercial cleaners on hand when nothing else works, but you can certainly smell the difference and they do affect your breathing. You don’t need to be a detective to know they hurt your breathing. The article suggests vinegar, baking powder and salt as well. I’d add lemon juice to that list. I have a lemon tree so it’s easy. We need some healthy options when it comes to cleaners.
