We take organic cleaner to our Cotacachi hotel every time we visit because Our staff work to keep our hotel Meson de las Flores spick & span.
This is one reason why the 180 year old colonial building looks so great.
Merri and I also give credit to the entire staff. Most have worked here for decades and they love the hotel. They honor its history and work hard to keep it looking first class. Especially our maids, Rosita De las Torres and ….
not only clean, but put great love, care and attention into making Meson look like a home that our guests will return to again and again.
We do all we can to help Cotacachi be organic because organic cleaners are important to the environment and our bodies.
The cleaner I use on myself, in our house, pur garden and take to our Cotacachi hotel… I call Ted’s Stuff.
Since we are lured into having many poisons in our homes and establishments, I look at everything. I am always suspicious of cleaners..
For example, “Softsoap Antibacterial Soap” a brand of liquid hand soap manufactured by Colgate Palmolive. Check the label of this soap and you will read the words. “Proven to eliminate the dirt and germs your family encounters. Contains light moisturizer to leave your hands feeling soft. GENTLE ENOUGH FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. As with any soap avoid contact with eyes.”
What does this really mean. How can we find out what this stuff is really like?
There is a way.
Every product shipped in the USA has to have an OSHA regulated form called a “Materials Safety Data Sheet”. This form is meant to protect workers shipping and handling products. You can find the real story behind a products toxicity by looking up the “MSDS.” Take for example the Softsoap MSDS.
Get ready to cringe. The “MSDS” on this chemical based formula that is “gentle enough for the whole family” states under the general controls section “Avoid contact with skin and eyes.” It warns workers to wear rubber gloves while using this and such. How this warning is mysteriously converted into gentleness on the store shelves is beyond me, but you can see the “MSDS” for yourself.
Though it is doubtful that Softsoap alone will be really harmful to our health, we must wonder how many other things that are pushed on us as safe and gentle when they really are not. How many of these light toxins does our body have to deal with every day? How many of our allergies, diseases and imbalances are created by this continual bombardment of chemicals that do not kill, but each take their little tolls.
We have all heard of “death by a thousand cuts”. Is our society suffering “sickness by a thousand minimal exposures”?
Merri and I have been away from the farm, its pure spring water and the fresh clean air and we feel the difference.
We must all be aware of our surroundings and take care. There is a saying that “Man can accomplish the impossible, but cannot overcome the inconvenient”. We have walked the moon and sent humanity’s imprint to Mars and beyond. Yet we cannot overcome the multitude of tiny toxicities that bombard us each and every day. This a true challenge. Everywhere we are, everywhere we go, poisons have been made easy to consume.
This is why I sent the reply below to a reader who wrote:
“Gary, organic biodegradable cleaner is nothing new…Watkins has been selling for years. You should be above shilling for these types! Anyone on the Internet can go to Google and debunk the hustlers…”
I agree with this reader that there are many scams in the name of organic, pure, all natural, and such stuff. In fact this why I have been recommending Ted’s stuff and my reply to this reader says it all.
“Ted’s Stuff is a product I have been using myself for many years and the difference is that it works so well. I feel it an obligation to let people know about the enormous danger that we all face and how our environment is being damaged.
Merri and I both feel that perhaps just to stop pollution at the lowest level may help people gain added years and added vitality to their lives.
Here are some shots that our friend Dennis Goff took on our visit to the farm community that our foundation is helping and of our group visiting the Cotacachi organic gardens.
