Did you know that one of the main sources of toxicity in your home may actually be stored underneath your kitchen sink? An estimated two-five million exposures to household poisons occur every year, with a significant number of them involving household cleaners. Commercial cleaning products are not required to list all of their ingredients. Using harsh chemicals may seem easier but it can actually create problems for your family, your pets and our planet.
Several of our cleaning products have natural disinfecting properties. Lemons and lavender are naturally great cleaners and we use them in essential oil form. Lemongrass oil as a lovely, fresh scent that is not overpowering and it is a perfect ingredient for use in bathroom cleaning. We rely on a variety of resources for creating these “recipes”, including the Women’s Cancer Resource Center and Clean House, Clean Planet, authored by Karen Logan.
