Photo: What home cleaning products do you use?

Join EWGs people-powered research initiative and enter information about the home cleaning products you use.

You love them because they're more than skin deep. Heck, they invented Skin Deep — an online database with safety profiles for more than 65,000 cosmetics and personal care products!

Our friends at the U.S. Environmental Working Group are building a household cleaning supplies database and they need your help. Take 10 minutes and enter the products you use to clean your home. (Don't worry. Nobody's going to ask for before and after pictures.)

It doesn't matter where you live. All data is appreciated, as they hope to rate thousands of products.

So pull out the bottles that make up your cleaning arsenal and get ready to enter the brands you use, where you buy them, and how you use them.

I know what you're thinking: why doesn't the David Suzuki Foundation rank and rate products? We don't have the capacity. But, stay tuned! Early next year we'll be shining the spotlight on toxics in home cleaning products. (Remember how much you learned about how to avoid the Dirty Dozen ingredients found in way too many personal care products?)

Subscribe to win

Subscribe to my blog and you'll be entered to win a four-piece home cleaning kit, certified by ECOCERT and Leaping Bunny, kindly donated by Aspen Clean. (Current subscribers are already automatically entered in the contest and the draw date is October 20th.)

Do you have a favourite cleaning product you simply can't live without?
