Facts

  • Many household cleaners contain toxic chemicals. These chemicals may cause short-term and long-term health problems when you use them.

  • Children are often more vulnerable to chemical exposure during developmental stages, and certain chemicals may interfere with the development of their neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Main routes of exposure: eating, drinking, breathing, and touching.

  • Younger children have higher respiratory rates than adults, therefore they absorb more air contaminants per unit of weight, meaning they experience a higher inhaled dose.

  • According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside a typical home is 200–500 percent more polluted than the air outside mainly due to toxic household cleaning products. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!

Must-Have Basics


BAKING SODA

Absorbs and eliminates odor. Use to clean countertops, sinks, and tubs. Sprinkle some baking soda mixed with a few drops of Lemon essential oil on your carpet and vacuum after 15 minutes for a fresher look and feel.

WHITE VINEGAR

Contains natural antifungal and antibacterial properties. Cuts grease and dissolves mineral deposits.

CASTILE SOAP

Lifts dirt, cuts grease, and eliminates tough stains. Pour a small amount over baking sheets and pans then scrub for a few minutes, and you’ll have clean, shiny results.

SALT

Salt is an effective scouring agent. Pour salt mixed with hot water down the kitchen sink regularly to deodorize and keep grease from building up. Mix salt with Lemon essential oil and use to remove stubborn coffee and tea cup stains.


OLIVE OIL

Great natural cleaner and polisher. Rub it into leather or polish wood surfaces. Use this recipe for a natural wood polish.


Add a few drops of each to a cotton ball and place at the bottom of your trashcan.
