This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 2000 Flushes. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey did you guys know that approximately 90 million toilets are flushed during half time of the Superbowl? All I can say is, that is a lot of water… 2000 Flushes contacted me, asking if I would review their products. They also sponsored a Super Bowl party in my home. It was a nice small party with a few guests. We don’t get crazy over the Super Bowl, but we love watching some of the commercials.
2000 Flushes was very gracious in sending us party decorations, and a gift card for some food. They also sent me some of their 2000 Flushes products to test out. They are offering a giveaway of a $10,000 bathroom makeover on their site, so be sure to enter that!
When asked if the product does what it says, in that it keeps me from having to clean the toilet bowl as often, my answer is yes. However, I want to take this opportunity to hopefully make a difference with this company by offering some helpful feedback. The entire time that bleach was sitting in my toilet bowl, I was concerned for the health and safety of not only my dog, but especially for my children. Bleach is a very toxic chemical that is dangerous not only to the environment, but to animals and people. I’ll quote the back of the box:
HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND DOMESTIC ANIMALS
DANGER. Highly Corrosive. May be fatal if swallowed. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. Causes eye and skin damage. Irritating to the nose and throat. Avoid breathing dust. Do not get into eyes, on skin or clothing. Wear rubber gloves when handling and wash thoroughly after handling.
The box then goes on to explain what you should do if the product is ingested or comes in contact with your body. Aside from the fact that the warning on the box is enough to scare this mother into not using it, the bleach in the product is actually not good for the environment or if you are on a septic system.
Septic systems contain bacteria that are there to break down the waste. Using harsh chemicals in excess kills this bacteria, which means your septic tank will need to be pumped more often.
While convenience is sometimes nice, I would rather clean my toilet bowl more often with a greener cleaner, than risk my animals and children, not to mention the environment.
2000 Flushes seems like a great company, seeing how generous they were to me, so I’m hoping that this means they will generously consider my request for a natural and greener option with their toilet bowl tablets. It’s time we all start standing up and trying to make a difference for our world and the people we love. Come on 2000 Flushes, what do you say? Should you accept my proposal, and launch a green/natural tablet, I will be among the first in line! Just tell me where to buy it! Who’s with me?
