Your home should be the cleanest place in the whole world… and you may think it is, but by using cleaning products filled with hazardous chemicals, you are actually doing more harm than good!!! You can read the alarming facts HERE. The good news is that keeping your home clean and healthful (to you and the planet) is not as hard as it seems. And contrary to popular belief, these green cleaners work just as well as the chemical ones. I know because I use them!
So I’ve gathered some easy tips from Shaklee’s website. They make my favorite products for keeping my house squeaky clean.
- Get the dirt.
Educate yourself about what you bring into your home at www.householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov
- Have a clean-for-all.
Put on the gloves and get rid of the nasty stuff in your home. Responsibly, of course. Your local waste collection service has guidelines for proper household hazardous waste disposal, as well as collection sites for things like paint, batteries, and cleaners. Whatever you do, please don’t toss this stuff in the garbage.
- Welcome healthy into your home.
Commit to carefully considering everything that crosses your doorstep. Here are some safe, healthy things to have in your home:
- Fresh air. Open your windows to reduce indoor air pollution.
- Essential oils. Use these instead of air fresheners.
- Plants. Besides being nice to look at, they can absorb harmful gases and help clean the air.
- Organic cotton bedding. Avoid standard bedding treated with chemicals.
- Floors made of recycled and renewable resources.
- Healthy paint. That new paint smell can be as nasty as it smells. Choose low VOC paint instead.
- Cleaners that are truly cleaner. Look for these clean credentials on Get Clean products: non-toxic, natural,
biodegradable, concentrated, and hypoallergenic.
- Clean up our collective home.
Make the earth healthier for all of us who call it home by using these things in yours:
