If you looked at the ingredients of your cleaning supplies what would you find? Are they ingredients you want to be breathing in or ingesting?
Did you know that the majority of household cleaning products contain chemical ingredients with adverse health effects that also harm the environment? Some brands even contain cancer-causing toxins like formaldehyde and benzene.
Chemicals have a way of sneaking into our homes and bodies in various ways, whether it’s from using hand soap, laundry detergent, a plug-in air freshener or wax-based candle. The average household contains about 62 toxic chemicals, say environmental experts. These toxic ingredients can easily be inhaled or absorbed by not only you but your pets and children as well, which is something you don’t want to happen.
There is so much in the environment we can’t control, but we can control what we bring into our homes. There are so many organic household cleaning products and brands that help scrub away the dirt without leaving any harsh chemicals behind. It can be overwhelming and hard to know where to start, but if you know what brands to look for or what ingredients to avoid while shopping, it’s actually pretty easy to clean your home in a way that’s sustainable and healthy.
