Why use all those harsh chemicals trying to clean shower doors? Here's a great replacement. Take this into the shower with you: a couple of "dryer fabric sheets". After you clean yourself, use the "dryer sheets" to clean the shower doors! Two sheets normally clean both both doors! Try it! You will be amazed!

While this seems like a good idea and may work well, you will be surprised to know that dryer sheets are just as full of toxic chemicals as any other mainstream cleaner or laundry item in the store. When I typed in "toxins in dryer sheets" into the google search I found 104,000 sites that came up talking about this problem. here are a list of ingredients in normal dryer sheets:

Benzyl Acetate: Linked to pancreatic cancer

Benzyl Alcohol: Upper respiratory tract irritant

Ethanol: On the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste list and can cause central nervous system disorders

A-Terpineol: Can cause respiratory problems, including fatal edema, and central nervous system damage

Ethyl Acetate: A narcotic on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list


Camphor: Causes central nervous system disorders

Chloroform: Neurotoxic, anesthetic and carcinogenic

Linalool: A narcotic that causes central nervous system disorders

Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled

Sometimes its better to not use short cuts and use a little elbow grease. Make a paste of baking soda and water for hard to clean shower doors. Put some of the paste on a rag and wipe the doors and simply rinse off when done. Not only is the concoction safe on your tub but it is safe for you and the environment. Throw your used rag in the wash and you have saved a fabric sheet or paper towel from the landfill.
