When was the last time you read the labels on your cleaning products? If you’re doing it right, you read the labels on all your food, but honestly, most people probably can’t even pronounce half the ingredients in their cleaning products.
Our homes and environments deserve the same attention we give our bodies; the air we breathe has just as much of an effect on our health as the food we eat. Most mainstream cleaning products contain toxic chemicals that are not only eroding your furniture, but also negatively affecting your health. A non-toxic home supports a healthy family, simple as that.
Further, some soaps have chemicals that can hurt our natural environment, too. When soapy water runs down the drain, the chemicals run off into our water supply. So, your neighbors’ toxic cleaning products could be hurting us all. Don’t be that neighbor.
One of our favorite brands is Dr. Bronner’s. Their soaps are made from hemp, and they have a wide variety of scents from essential oils like lavender, peppermint, tea tree, citrus, and almond. Dr. Bronner’s is active in their environmental and social efforts. We love this brand and many others, but any plant-based cleaning product with recognizable ingredients will do the trick.
