Are you in full spring-cleaning mode, yet? I absolutely love this time of the year -- out with the old, in with the new.. Tidying up your home and your life can breathe such a breath of fresh air into your life. One important aspect of cleaning is the household cleaners you use, and I wanted to share dome of my favorite information with you today about how to choose healthier versions.

These chemical-laden household cleaners can make it hard for us to breathe, cause our eyes to water, or even lead to health concerns we certainly want to bypass. These damaging chemical are found in everything from you fabric softener that gets clothes feeling snuggly to your soap-scum remover, and everything in between.

The smell-food factor is what causes a lot of the problem. Chemical cleaner manufacturers want us to feel like our homes are fresh like lemons, but they're still loaded with chemicals agents we release into our homes with every scrubbing. Go look at your cleaning products and read the ingredients. Do you see DEA or TEA? these ingredients, among many others, are actually carcinogenic and should be avoided.

What You Should Look for Instead

If you must but cleaners to clean your home, take a look at the labels. If it says "danger," "caution," or "warning" on it, it's best to keep walking. Choosing non-toxic cleaners is always best for you home and your health.


Another great option is to go with plant-based formulations over petroleum-based. Don't fall for terms like "natural" or "eco-friendly" though. You should keep reading the packaging to be sure those claims are legitimate. If it contains "solvent-free" "no phosphates ," or petroleum-based ingredients" on the packaging, it's a much safer and greener choice.
