Connecticut Department of Public Health now recommends green cleaning in child care settings.

Choose SaniDate Hard Surface Sanitizer

Public health professionals recently put out a notice recommending facilities to avoid products containing bleach for routine cleaning and disinfecting. Instead, they suggest using safer yet effective products with hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient. Bleach can harm both children and adults, especially when strong concentrations are used.

Bleach is known to trigger asthma attacks and cause new cases of asthma in those who use it frequently, like janitors and custodians, professional house cleaners, and maids. For some of these people, very small exposures can cause increasing symptoms after the first exposure. Another family of chemicals to avoid during routine cleaning and disinfection.

Child care operators frequently ask about safer cleaning methods and materials for their facilities. In response to questions about the availability of “greener” disinfectants, sanitizers and cleaning products, the Connecticut Department of Public Health offers two fact sheets that address these questions.
