DITCH HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS, full of harmful toxins!
These chemicals enter your bloodstream within 26 seconds. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to clean my counter with chemicals that disrupt hormone levels and have been linked to cancer and mental illness, and then prepare and eat my food off that same counter.
We can’t assume that just because something is heavily marketed or popular that it is safe. We have to be the guardian of our own home and control what enters the threshhold of our doorways.
The biggest pollutants in our home come from household cleaners. You are literally poisoning your family every day with the things you can’t pronounce in your home, like the bright blue dish soap, the cleaner you use for your kitchen counters, fabric softener, air fresheners, and more. (Good rule of thumb, if you can’t pronounce it, you shouldn’t be using it.)
Essential oils are a better choice for cleaning!
SWITCH TO THIEVES CLEANER!
If you are really looking to make the switch to a more natural lifestyle, no switch will be quite as satisfying to you as switching to Thieves Cleaner.
It is COMPLETELY plant based. I can hand a spray bottle to either of my girls and let them spray without fear of them being exposed to harmful chemicals.
It is such a money saver. For just over a dollar, you can make a spray bottle of Thieves Cleaner for your home (it is a concentrate and is super-diluted! one bottle lasts FOREVER!) You cannot find a cleaner this inexpensive in the store.
You can replace so many products in your home with this one switch! Here are some of them!
