Against The Grain
Lets talk for a minute about cleaning house! When I am cleaning my home, the goal is the make everything a safe, decontaminated area for my children. But, have we been doing it all wrong? When I decontaminate my house, am I using products that are going to aid in the growth of cancer cells in my family? Scary thought right!
I’m going to start this series of blog post about the toxic dangers of household cleaners in your home. They are meant to help you, but they are only hurting you! If I had to choose between killing the germs in the home with a dangerous toxin that can cause cancer and not cleaning at all…I would choose not cleaning at all! I would rather my family get common colds and pink eye here and there than speed up the growth of cancer cells! Thankfully, there is another option! There are so many natural ways to decontaminate your home, all of which don’t aid in the growth of cancer cells! Let me help you get rid of the toxic dangers in your home!

Lets start with some motivation to rid your home of the Toxic Dangers of Household Cleaners!
The government does not protect us from toxins that are unhealthy and unsafe! It is up to YOU to do the research and protect you and your family!
1 in 3 woman and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life!
Chemicals found in household cleaners like phthalates, parabens, triclosan and MANY others are carcinogens! Carcinogens function as endocrine disruptors, act as neurotoxins and/or allergens and lead to learning and/or developmental issues.
Over the past 30 years, research has revealed that exposure to toxic chemicals we encounter daily may play a role in the increase in serious health problems.
It’s time to become your own Health Advocate, do the research and rid your house of the toxic dangers! This series will show you exactly how to replace all of those household cleaners with natural, chemical free cleaners! I will provide you with things you can buy as replacement cleaners and things you can make as replacement cleaners. That way, if you’re a DIY’er, you can make your cleaning products. If you are busy and just don’t have time for DIY projects, you can buy your cleaner. You can start this series by looking at the first all natural replacement, Natural Laundry Soap!
Next I will post about homemade, chemical free cleaning wipes!
