When it comes to choosing the right disinfectant, it’s important to make sure that the product has been evaluated to be safe for the intended use. While disinfectants are commonly used around the home, many consumers fail to consider underlying risks within the product. On top of the confusing labelling, it can be difficult trying to read between the murky lines of marketing lingo – which can sometimes mask a product’s true ingredients and effectiveness.
Why is it important to verify safety claims?
These products may claim to be “safe”, but it may not be what it seems. Disinfectants are used to eliminate germs that pose a threat to our health, but some of these off-the-shelf products make use of harmful chemicals such as alcohol and bleach to kill off pathogens. However, these ingredients may also cause skin irritations, respiratory problems and even lead to more serious health concerns in the long run, especially around children who are more vulnerable to toxic exposures.
How do you know if a product is safe to use?
A safe disinfectant should not contain any warning symbols or precautions on the product label, which would otherwise indicate the presence of toxic chemicals on the ingredients list. A little research will determine whether a brand is making truthful, accurate claims. Beyond running your own lab tests, one way to ensure credibility is through third-party testing. This helps to validate its safety and efficacy claims – whether or not a product delivers on its promises – allowing consumers to make well-informed decisions.
