Nowadays everyone is suffering from allergies. I know at least 10 people of the top of my head whose kids suffer from asthma. Did you ever ask yourself why? Why do so many people suffer allergies, medical conditions, and various illnesses? Could it stem from the house cleaning products and the chemicals we use inside and outside our home?
How healthy is your home? Your home may sparkle because it is clean, but in the end, those chemicals might be damaging you and your family’s bodies more than you are aware.
The problem is in today’s world everyone is always on the run. Your either working, running to school events, running to after school activities, chauffeuring the kids to wherever, and tending to daily responsibilities. All these responsibilities fill up your daily schedules. With all this going on in your busy schedule honestly who has time to research how hazardous each cleaning product might be. Who has time to examine each chemical in every product and the long-term effects it might have on people and animals. How many people have the time to seriously think about what cleaning products are safest to use in the home? Who has the time to research this topic come on now?
But if you really want to protect the one’s you love than the health of your home is crucially important and this is why you need to know what products you are using to clean them. Even though your busy, make time, your family health comes first. Nothing matters more than a healthy home with happy people living in that home. This is why I have created a quick list of the three reasons why you should be cleaning your home with natural cleaning products.
Do it for yourself, your family and the environment:
- Safer & healthier: Do you know what is in the household cleaning products you are using? The fact is, most house cleaning products on market shelves today contain many harmful and hazardous toxins and chemicals. These hazardous toxic substances can enter the body through ingestion, inhalation or absorption through the skin, which can affect the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and the brain and have the potential to cause many serious health problems. Natural cleaning products on the other hand are non-toxic and much safer to use because they are made from natural, wholesome, ingredients. In addition, when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting your home, they work just as effectively if not better than the chemical products that sell in thousands of stores.
- Better for the environment: Most retail brand household cleaning products are made from harmful chemicals and these substances later become pollutants for our air and our landfills. Natural cleaning products on the other hand are made from natural ingredients, which are non-toxic as well as biodegradable and thus have a reduced impact on our environment. In addition, most natural cleaning products are frequently made from recycled packaging and materials.
- Save you money: It should come as no surprise to you that the average costs for keeping up a family and a household are continuing to rise. However, you do not have to endanger the health of your families or your homes by using expensive, toxic chemical cleaning products. Natural cleaning products are not only safer to use, they also save you money because they last longer and cost less. In addition, to have a pretty scent in your home add 100% natural essential oils to your home made recipes such as tea tree oil, lavender or lemon oil which not only provide a fresh aroma and scent, but also have natural antiseptic, antifungal and disinfectant properties contained within them.
