I am so excited how many people have purchased and are enjoying Chemistry Hacks for Home & Outdoor. I have heard so many wonderful things from those using it, and I love that!
If you haven’t purchased it, but aren’t quit sure if you want to, I definitely understand. Today, I want to share with you how to avoid pinterest cleaning myths, one of the benefits of Chemistry Hacks for Home & Outdoor.
Following Chemistry Cachet on bloglovin and subscribing to our monthly newsletter (bottom of post) is also a great way to keep up with the newest chemist tips.
There are so many great tips out there on the internet for this type of thing. Making your own solutions at home is a current trend that people everywhere are enjoying.
Here is the thing, there are so many websites out there that share these things, but they don’t know the foundation of the science behind it. Almost every day, I come across an article about homemade cleaning solutions. I am always a little surprised at the information being shared…some if it is incorrect, while some of it is dangerous. There are so many pinterest cleaning myths out there!
I set out a few years ago, to create an easy to use eBook that will take all that trial and error away from you, not to mention keep you safe in the process.
The internet is chock full of myths and misinformation.
This morning I read an article titled something along the lines of “Cleaning Hacks that Don’t Work and Are Ridiculous.” I was intrigued, so I clicked on it. This blogger had at least three cleaning hacks listed that she said didn’t work at all and were plain stupid (her words).
The thing is, she was scientifically inaccurate. For one, the article stated that hairspray was not effective for removing certain stains because hairspray hasn’t had alcohol in it since the 1960s.
Almost all hair spray contains a form of alcohol. Here is a popular hair spray you see everywhere especially in beauty salons. What is the number on ingredient? Denatured Alcohol which is a mixture of ethanol and a denaturing agent. You can read almost any hair spray and see a form of alcohol.
She also said that baking soda and vinegar cancel each other out. That term I see all over the internet “cancel each other out” is chemically inaccurate. While they do eventually neutralize, it takes a chemical reaction to get there. Didn’t you mix baking soda and vinegar in a bottle as a kid? It blew up! That is not canceling each other out.
While this article is just an example, there are may out there.
Chemistry Hacks not only gives you a background on the chemicals used in this book, but all the solutions are chemically safe, accurate, and very effective!
Science is responsible for every form of cleaning solution, garden hack, and even food advances. That is why I love sharing all these chemistry tips with you!
Pinterest is an awesome inspirational took, but everyone is an “expert.” You just have to take caution when reading articles.
I hope this can help you and feel free to ask me any questions 🙂
