We all have a desire and an outright need for a clean, germ-free, and great smelling home. But at what cost are we cleaning our dirty messes in our homes every single day. What are we really wiping on our baby’s highchair table, washing our dishes with, and mopping on our floors?
I think we can all agree that the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t have our best interest at heart. There are far too many toxic chemicals that are allowed to lurk right in our foods, so why not in our household cleaning supplies.
We need to do our own research and make safe choices for our own families. In everyday household and personal hygiene products, there are ingredients that are carcinogenic, hormone disrupters, and neurotoxins. (Source) This is really scary stuff and not a subject left only to the “crunchy” mamas.
Here’s the real truth, DIY, all-natural products are just as, if not more effective, than the store-bought chemically laden products we’ve all come to know and love. But why do we love and give our money to companies who made products that poison us?
The best part is, this isn’t a hard decision at all! Natural, home-made cleaners are super easy to made and use. They smell great and obviously smell like real scents… no fake summertime rain scents here. And best of all, natural homemade products are cheap, dirt cheap! Here’s the proof.
