Commercial home cleaning products are not just more expensive when compared with natural alternatives. They are full of toxins known to affect your skin, lungs, nervous system, and even your endocrine and reproductive systems. These dangerous toxins invade your body either through the fumes they create or direct contact with your skin.
The Dirty Truth about Cleaning Chemicals
Most of us grew up believing it was important to have a clean, shiny germ-free home, and our cabinets contained an array of colorful, fragrant liquids and powders. We never considered that these could be harmful to our family’s health; promoting allergies, cancer and other disease. The following are in household cleaners, but other toxins in your home can come from carpet cleaning chemicals, new furniture and flooring, and pesticides.
Toxic cleaning products not only affect your health; they find their way from home drains or garbage cans to the soil, drinking water, and air – affecting all humans, animals, and plants. The good news is that you can make your own non-toxic cleaning products at home with ingredients you probably already have. This will not only save you money; it can improve your health.
