I would like to say that it is an embarrassment of riches, but what it is is just an embarrassment.
I hate all of the toxic cleaners that I have been using, and I am on a quest to replace them with natural green cleaners.
I have a lot of allergies and I am concerned about how the chemicals in everyday cleaning products are making them worse.
According to the American Lung Association ".... chemicals released when using cleaning supplies contribute to chronic respiratory problems, allergic reactions, and headaches." You can read more about that here.
We all want our homes to be clean, to smell good, and to be germ free, but at what risk are we using all of those disinfectants and bleaches. I think I became a bit of a germaphobe because I have a daughter with a primary immune deficiency. She doesn't have the ability to fight off germs the way the majority of us do, but she also doesn't want to be exposed to all of those toxic chemicals. So even though she is now grown and living on her own, I still want to use products that will keep my home relatively germ free without feeling like I am living in a toxic wasteland.
I have been doing some research on using products that I already have on hand. That is a good thing because it will save me money.
There are also some great natural and eco friendly products that you can buy. Two that I personally like are:
So now I am on a mission. Hmmmmm!!!!! Now how do I dispose of those old toxic products. Guess I will have to research that next.
Full disclosure: I am not being compensated in any way for the mention of these products. I just like them, but free products are always welcome in my life.
