Healthy Alternatives to Toxic Household Products
Today’s episode is a continuation of last week’s on toxicity in our daily lives. With spring cleaning upon us, it’s important to note that cleaning up our homes can also mean cleaning up our health, and we’re here to give you some tips on how to do just that. Learn what household products could be causing harm to your body & what healthy alternatives we suggest in order to avoid the damage of toxins.
First up let’s talk about water. Tap water has been found to contain a plethora of toxic chemicals including arsenic, and lead just to name a few. Not only can this be harmful when you’re drinking water, but also when you’re taking a shower, brushing your teeth, etc. The easiest thing you can do to avoid toxic tap water is to get some sort of filtration system whether it’s individually on your shower head, sink, or through your entire house with a whole-house filtration system.
Another toxic household item you may want to consider switching is your cleaning products. Ashley Berlin explains that what you’re spraying on your kitchen counters matter because if your kids drop food on the table and eat it, they may be consuming remnants of the toxic cleaner that was previously used there. There are plenty of clean brands nowadays that make non-toxic cleaners such as Branch Basics, but if you’re looking for a cheaper option check out our article to see how you can make your own at home!
