What to look for in a household cleaner?

In the winter we spend more time then usual indoors in our warm homes especially further North you live.  Keeping the air in our homes clean involves more then most think….  Many don’t realize that indoor air pollution can actually be 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor air.

One of the main contributors to the air quality in a home is household cleaners.  Some household cleaners emit harmful chemicals, such as chlorine, ammonia, phthalates and triclosan. You can avoid exposure to these toxins by selecting natural non toxic cleaning products or creating your own cleaning  products like using white vinegar with lemon.  But my favorite cleaner right now is Thieves Household Cleaner.  I just love the smell of the essential oils used its calming and smells fantastic.  Plus its very economical to use as it needs to be diluted with water to be used in a spray bottle.  This cleaner goes far and lasts a long time.

Natural Non Toxic Cleaners should be:

  • non-toxic
  • natural
  • effective
  • eco-friendly
  • biodegradable

Enjoy non-toxic cleaning essentials for a healthy, happy home!
