You may indulge in a detox routine once in a while to get rid of toxins from your body, however, you need to know that this applies to your home as well. It is essential that you make it a practice to cleanse your home of toxins too from time to time so that you can ensure that you and your family remain healthy.
You are probably already aware that cleaning products that you use to clean your home on a regular basis are known to contain over 500 chemicals that can be dangerous for the people around you living in your home. Below are a few tips that you can use to keep your family safe from these chemicals by availing of the right means to clean your home.
Read and understand labels
When you make your way to the supermarket to get your monthly supply of groceries and cleaning products, be sure that you read the labels and try to understand them as well. You may be a little overwhelmed with the words that come your way, but take some time out and get familiar with these words. It will take you a few minutes with the help of google. Some might contain potentially harmful chemicals that could do great harm to your family’s health.
Are you being mislead by ‘Green’ marketing schemes?
When you do see yourself fall for false marketing terms such as ‘green’ or ‘natural’ remember that you may be being duped by marketing gimmicks. Instead, take time to read these labels too, so that you can be absolutely sure and do not end up spending extra money on false promises.
Have you thought about creating your own cleaners?
Creating an all-purpose cleaner at home is very easy. All you need is three basic ingredients: water, soda bicarbonate and white vinegar. It’s safe and will not poison the people living around you.
In case the smell of this natural cleaner seems to bother you, simply integrate some essential oils in to the mix like lavender or eucalyptus or any other that suits your fancy. They will give your home a beautiful smell and in fact have antibacterial properties that will help with keeping your house free of toxins.
Keep the air clean
When you breathe, you take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide, plants absorb this carbon dioxide and release oxygen, and that’s why having indoor plants is a great idea.
