Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I do the same thing. I dont have the time to spend hours on the internet researching products - and I wouldnt trust what I read, anyway! I have stopped using regular bleach, and switched to H2O2 products - they ARE safe and do the same job. It is important to me that any product I use smell good. So, if I try something and the smell bothers me - OUT it goes! My customers seem to feel the same way, since many comment how on how nice their homes smell when I leave.
One problem I have had with certain products is that they can leave a dull film on counters, etc. If that happens, I try diluting it further. If it still does this, I toss the product. Trial and error has given me a set of decent products. And I do think they are safe - maybe not the cheapest out there, but I do worry about MY health, AND my customers. Many of my customers have pets - mostly cats, because I love cats and people tend to hire me just because of this. I do not want to use any product that could hurt animals - or children.
