Spring-time is the time to tackle all those cleaning jobs on your list. From dirty ovens to making sure unused items are donated, to giving the windows a thorough wash or making sure the refrigerator is fresh, the list is endless. But what about our ‘toxic load’ around the home? We carefully watch what goes into our bodies. But when it comes to keeping a healthy home, it’s tough to know what’s truly safe for our families.
‘Clean living’ can be as important as ‘clean eating’ as every day we come into contact with countless chemicals and toxins in our environment. The average house may contain as many as 400 chemicals according to a 2009 study in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. With so many questionable chemicals swirling around, lowering your toxin exposure could definitely be a good idea. Reducing your contact with chemicals (even by just a little) can give clear health benefits. Try these detoxifying tips today
- Switch to Microfibre cloths
They pick up dirt and hold onto it (instead of spreading it around), meaning you don’t have to rely on chemical cleaners all the time. Plus, they last so much longer than disposable cloths and are far better for the environment.
- Bring the outdoors in
Houseplants are natural detoxifiers and have a natural ability to clean air, removing pollutants including Carbon Monoxide. Breathe easier by adding plants that will improve the air quality of your home.
- Leave shoes at the door
Everyday you can stand in nasty stuff like pesticides and lead dust. Keep out the dirt with a ‘no shoes’ policy, or if that won’t work in your home, invest in a dirt repellent door mat.
- Switch to NutriClean
One of the easiest ways to help reduce ‘toxic load’ is by turning to clean and green cleaning products in our home. By swapping harsh, chemical-laden products for plant-derived, natural products, we can ease the burden on our body’s natural cleansing processes. It’s best to avoid anything that contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Triclosan or Parabens. You can be safe in the knowledge that our incredible NutriClean ranges contain the best natural ingredients for a sparkling clean home without nasties.
- Dispose of supermarket cleaners mindfully
Before you decide to toss out any old cleaners, read the label to see how to dispose of hazardous household waste. You should avoid pouring these products down the drain as it may contaminate water supplies.
