Chemicals? Everything is chemicals! Part 26

I found this item in the grocery store today.

Introducing the chemical free way to remove dust, dirt, smudges, and fingerprints!


Cool! Chemical free, eh?

Let's take a closer look at the constituents.

 
So this "chemical free" cleaner is comprised of:
  • An 84% Polyester and 16% Polyamide optical microfiber
  • An 88% Polyester and 12% Polyamide cleaning microfiber
  • A 100% Polyurethane foam core
  • A 100% silicone ring band
Yeah, those aren't chemicals.

Oh wait. They are.

Polyester is a chemical. Polyamide is a chemical. Polyurethane is a chemical. Silicone is a chemical.

All chemicals.

Folks, don't buy into the "chemical-free" hype.

Tim Minchin: ...everything organic and natural is good, ignoring the fact that organic natural substances include arsenic and poo and crocodiles...everything chemical is bad...ignoring the fact that EVERYTHING is chemicals!
