Choose natural cleaning products to keep your home healthy

Using natural cleaning products in the home is but one of many ways to significantly reduce exposure to hundreds of harmful chemicals. Many of us, without even being aware of it bring toxins into our homes. Cleaning products are one of the main offenders.


Unknowingly we purchase products at our local supermarket that promise to make our oven sparkling, our floors shine, our windows streak free, and bathrooms and kitchens smelling fresh and clean. However many of these products believed to improve the look and scent of our "home sweet home" can actually harm us and our family.

I believe it's very unnecessary to buy chemical based cleaning products. You can clean your home very effectively without the use of them. For example my cleaning cupboard consists of:

Organic White Vinegar, Baking Soda (Bi-Carb), Organic Lemon, Orange, Lavender and Tea-Tree Essential Oils, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Sea Salt and Organic Liquids Detergents and Eco-Friendly Detergents for the Laundry with no nitrates, added bleaches, phosphates, softeners and fragrance free.

TIP: You don't have to make changes overnight. When it's time to replace your cleaning products simply switch to safer alternatives by beginning to use some of your organic home products from the pantry.
