Cleaning products often contain a cocktail of chemicals which are potentially hazardous to our health. Common ingredients such as perchloroethylene, triclosan, ammonia, sodium hydroxide and chloride, have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders and hormone disruption. These cleaners are also very environmentally unfriendly and if they find their way through drains into the natural ecosystem, they can cause a lot of damage to waterways and wildlife.
Fortunately there are natural cleaners that do just as good a job as chemicals and which are readily available in the home. They cost a fraction as much, are environmentally friendly and completely non-toxic to users.
Fly screens, insect screen or bug screen are designed as the first line of defence against germ carrying insects entering our homes. So who was the bright spark that came up with the idea of using a textile with a weave small enough that would stop small insects such as flies and mosquitoes, yet open enough allow ventilation?
The furthest we could go is back to the best match for conventional fly screens was back in 1832, when the term “Woven wire for window screens” was referenced in the publication, American Farmer. In 1836 an ad appeared for “wire window screens” in the American directory, Boyd’s Blue Book.
