If you were to begin reading the list of ingredients on a typical household cleaner, you would probably be amazed at some of the chemicals that are found inside. Everyday products can cause huge problems for those with sensitivities, but even those who are not sensitive, can be profoundly effected by long term exposure to the chemicals in cleaners.
There is a list of around 500 commonly found chemicals that are known carcinogens. Many of these chemicals are neurotoxins and can affect the respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, liver, circulatory system, skin, eyes and more. They are poisonous to humans, and particularly harsh on children and those who have compromised health.
Natural cleaning is about throwing all of the chemical laden cleaners away and using natural, healthy options. These options worked well for the generations that came before us, and we often take for granted the benefits that they bring…..especially the benefit of health!
I am going to be including some great recipes for natural cleaners that you can make and use at home, without the need for highly toxic cleaners. This will make your home environment safer for everyone!
