Recap on Natural Cleaning Products

Natural cleaning

 

In our prior post 101 Natural Cleaning productswe talked about the benefits of making the decision of switching from the best selling no all-natural cleaning products to naturally produced ones.

Lets recap:
  • Safety: decreased poisoning chemicals included in them, no bleaching of fabrics, lower toxicity, not inflammable (as a general rule)
  • Health: You’ll notice a decrease in Allergies, eye burn, headaches, migraines, muscle pain, reduced asthma, no chemicals that might be cancerous or potentially mess up your hormones, thyroids, nose…
  • Environment: They are more                    sustainable                    and do not damage the earth. Less toxic waste going through the drains and air pollution. The packaging tends to be easier to recycle, less quantity, more lasting and reusable.
  • Knowlege is power! it is very likely that you can read with confidence the label of a natural product and understand the components vs. a laundry list of long names that only a Ph.D. can pronounce correctly.
  • Cheaper: Normally green products are more all-encompassing, requiring you to buy one single “all-purpose” to clean most surfaces vs. having to buy a mainstream brand cleaning agent for each particular area of the house. Second, If you know the components you can be confident if you want to add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to have your house smelling exactly the way you like it vs. having to start lighting candles and spray because you house stinks after “cleaning”. Finally, If you prepare them yourself they are really really inexpensive, but if like me you don’t have the time, don’t worry! they are becoming more widely spread and sold at very competitive $.
  • It is an easy step to take towards a more    holistic                  and                          mindful                    lifestyle.

Not enough time in a day!

We would all love to have enough time to make our own and feel that great accomplishment and pride that comes from DYI but truth be said, most of us already have more than enough going on in our daily lives to add that one more thing. That extra responsibility might be our breaking point that tips our day from fabulous to exhausting without a real need. So out with the guilt and in with some All-Natural cleaning retail therapy.

It does not only improves our sense of wellness around but it can be super fun to choose products based on color, smell, shape knowing that they are all safe and efficient. It stops being a task and turns into a source of joy. It is like buying bathroom “spa” products, but for your entire house. How cool is that!
