Over the last few years, I have made a conscious effort to cut back on the amount of toxic chemicals I use in my home. Switching out my conventional products for natural or homemade versions was difficult at first but now has become second nature. I don’t have a lot of extra time so all the products that I make are versatile and can be thrown together in just a few minutes. While I do make a lot of my own natural home products, there are some things I prefer to purchase to make my life a little easier.
Cleaning products were the first thing I switched out when I began trying to cut down on the extra toxins in my home. It seemed like a logical place to start since most cleaning products contain a crazy amount of harmful chemicals. The more research I did the more appalled I was at the side effects these chemicals can have on our bodies and the environment.
