Author Amilya Antonetti's son, David, spent almost half of the first year of his life in and out of the emergency room. After the doctor's efforts to pinpoint the cause of his distress were fruitless, a determined Amilya eventually discovered an unmistakable pattern: Her son became violently ill about two hours after she finished cleaning house. David was having severe, though not uncommon, allergic reactions to ordinary household cleaners. Amilya's attention immediately turned to finding safer yet still effective ways to keep a clean house -- without putting David in the hospital -- which she built into a successful line of natural products.

The truth of the matter is that commercial cleaning products present in virtually every home are toxic and unhealthful and are responsible for scores of illnesses -- though very few are attributed to this cause. Fortunately, readers can now take control of this problem. This important book uncovers, room by room, the hidden dangers of the most common household cleaning products and teaches readers how to keep a clean house without polluting its environment and in turn poisoning its occupants. In addition, the author exposes the countless hazardous chemicals found in common house-hold furnishings such as countertops, carpet, and paint, and instructs readers how to take control of the situation -- and their family's health.
