Top 10 Things To Start Detoxing In Your Home
Cleaning products: Laundry and dish detergents as well as air fresheners release chemicals in the air! Many studies show that they can create asthma and respiratory problems because they create inflammation in the lungs. A study shows that using Clorox in the home increases your child’s chance of having allergies and asthma by 75%! Go through all cleaning products and make sure they’re toxin free! Using something as simple as half water and half vinegar is a clean, useful cleaning agent.
Beauty products: This is huge! Especially for ladies.
Reduce plastics: Buy glass containers instead.
Cooking supplies: Cook with stainless steel, ceramic or cast iron. Stay away from Teflon as this can seep into food and is also released in the air.
Water: Get a water filtration system! Clearly Filtered is one of the best options and can be taken with you when you travel.
Air: Get an air purifier! Look for mold in the home as well. Mold will disrupt everything if not taken care of.
Mattress and furniture: Get an organic mattress. Non-organic matresses release toxins while you sleep! Buy organic cotton sheets as well. When buying new furniture or rugs, cover them with baking soda and let sit, then vaccuum the baking soda before bringing it into your home. Wipe down surfaces with half water and half vinegar. This will absorb toxins on the furniture.
Buy EMF protectors and turn off WIFI at night.
Clothes and underwear: Buy organic cotton. There are many hormone disrupting chemicals in our clothing fabrics!
Candles/wall scents: Use essential oils or fresh flowers instead for a nice scent in your home.
