You’re a smart shopper when it comes buying groceries for your family. You read the labels, avoid over processed foods, and opt for fresh healthy real foods. When we shop for cleaning products, we might get caught up in the way marketers of these products promote them, using phrases such as, cleans, disinfects, leaves your house smelling fresh, kills germs, or wipes away grease. We want a clean and safe house for our families but when we buy these products, do we really know what we’re getting? Unlike the groceries we buy, housecleaning products are not regulated. Even if a product label claims to be “green”, that product may not be any safer than other products.
It’s important to read the labels on cleaning products including detergents, scents, aerosol sprays, air fresheners, dish detergents, oven sprays, and furniture and floor polishes. If you see ingredients listed such as ammonia, bleach, sodium hydroxide, or parabens, avoid purchasing these products. These toxic chemicals are not good for your health and can cause a wide variety of serious health issues. Exposure to the chemicals can affect your lungs, interfere with hormones and reproductive health creating both short- and long-term illnesses. So, if even the so-called green products contain harmful chemicals, how do we get our houses clean and germ free?
It’s surprisingly easy and inexpensive with just a few ingredients you already have in your home and a little elbow grease. Soap, water, vinegar, baking soda, salt, lemon juice, borax and a clean sponge can be used to safely and effectively clean your home.
