Too much information kazzzz, although I heard that you jumped on his bed and the sheets broke. :)

I once used some "organic" spray cleaner and got asthma so bad I had to drop the bottle and run outside so I could breathe! It was "Sun and Earth", a liquid in a pump spray bottle that was supposed to be good for cleaning surfaces. It sure did a number on my lungs! What was scarier was that no one was home, and I didn't have a cell phone, and I stood out on my front deck hoping that I'd be able to get back into the house to call 911 if my lungs didn't open up.

At least I didn't release any pollutants into the environment! >:-(

I'm happy that you got better mrsthing! Some organic cleaners use strong natural substances that can still be volatile - like highly-concentrated citrus-oils - I had breathing problems after using one of those sprays. I have found that 7th Generation makes the best natural cleaning products - they're a Vermont based company, and were one of the first environmental product companies. I have the biggest problems with bleach, ammonia, and most commercial cleaners. The difference is that natural-based cleaners do break down into harmless substances, while most synthetic chemicals do not.

One time my food co-op was painting, and they said it was "safer" paint, so I shopped - but the next day - my lungs were closed up like cement had hardened - instead of feeling like something you can breath through - they felt like a wall. Most of the time I avoid things that give me asthma, but sometimes it's harder to.

Terry S - I understand how it might be frustrating, but with so many people, threads just go with the flow(s). I think if you want a thread to be really one subject only - you could put "only," in the title, and even then - good luck :) As you can see, there are too many free spirits here, that need to be free...! It's an adventure...!

It's true to the category: "Blathering on." :) *Best*

My house always has a "smell" to it--not necessarily bad, but not like potpourri or candles, either. I've phased out most of the artificial cleaners. Hot water will get most things clean and kill most germs. I use grease cutting cleaners only. If the air gets really bad, I open a window, or set some mulled cider to simmer on the stove.

On Cleese's forum, it degenerates into profanity, vomiting, or sex. We're a wild bunch over there!
