We know we should do it. We know it’s beneficial for our families health. But we also know it can be EXPENSIVE! I’m talking about switching to clean, no-toxic, household products for you home and I am here to tell you that you can start to make the switch to a non-toxic lifestyle for less than you think! I’ve rounded up a list of 15 of my top clean household products for under $15 below!
Not only are non-toxic cleaning products better for your health, they’re also better for the environment. Flushing toxic chemicals down the drain pollutes our waterways and many conventional cleaning products are made with ingredients that are toxic, hazardous, non-biodegradable, as well as from non-renewable resources like petroleum that adversely affect our ecosystems.
The main things to look out for are the following:
1. Phthalates: Often found in many household products with a fragrance, such as air fresheners, dish soap, even toilet paper. Because of proprietary laws, companies don’t have to disclose what is in their scents, so you won’t find phthalates on a label. If you see the word “fragrance” on a label, there’s a good chance phthalates are present. This is so important, especially for women with hormonal imbalances or any reproductive issues.
2. Perchloroethylene (PERC): Found in dry-cleaning solutions, spot removers, and carpet and upholstery.
3. 2-Butoxyethanol: Frequently found in window, kitchen and multipurpose cleaners.
4. Triclosan: Found mostly in liquid dishwashing detergents and hand soaps labeled “antibacterial.”
5. Quarternary Ammonium Compounds (QUATS): Fabric softener liquids and sheets, most household cleaners labeled “antibacterial.”
6. Ammonia: Find them in polishing agents for bathroom fixtures, sinks and jewelry; also in glass cleaner.
7. Chlorine: You’ll find this in toilet bowl cleaners, mildew removers, laundry whiteners, household tap water.
Do natural products actually clean?
YES!! I understand why people think you need the worst smelling, most intense cleaning products to thoroughly clean your home but the truth is, the non-toxic counterparts are just as effective if not more! And they don’t have to be expensive! There are plenty of inexpensive items you can purchase to start your non-toxic journey!
