After reading the book Poisoned Profits: The Toxic Assault on Our Children, I have decided to reduce the chemicals that I use in my home for the next 30 days!
The areas that have given me the most concern are:
- Household cleaning products
- Laundry Detergent
- Hand wash
Synergy is defined as two or more things functioning together to produce a result not independently obtainable. Not just using bleach once-in-a-while, but using chemicals on the plates that we then eat off of…and then washing our clothes in the chemicals that we then wear on our skin or sluggle up with in bed at night…and how about the chemicals that I clean my dog’s chew toys with that are actually going in his mouth…and let’s not forget the makeup that I put on my face and then kiss and hug my sweet nephew Reef with that are linked to cleft palate in newborns (yes, this should make every woman feel like throwing up).
So these are the things I have conquered today! If you want some Febreze or a free bottle of fabric softener, then you know who to call because this girl is done with them all! Now it’s time to start cleaning…chemical-free cleaning, that is;) I’m sure I’ll discover some more horrific chemicals as I begin my journey…so here we go!
