Cleaning the bathroom used to be a nightmare… I have very poor ventilation in my bathroom which makes it the perfect place for mildew and on top of that my bathroom is so tiny that manouvering in there takes something that resembles acrobatics. I used to rely on harsh cleaners so I could just get in and get out with brute force but there is no more need to use products that can harm your skin and your lungs. Using this natural scrub cleaner is a super easy way to start swapping toxic ingredients for more natural alternatives.
Growing up, I remember my parents using a bright blue liquid to clean the mirrors and windows in our home. Unfortunately, checking out the ingredients list as an adult I was completely shocked to see a common household item carry a few severely harmful ingredients. So I did what any responsible adult would do. That’s right, I kept using it because I had no idea what else to use…
But when you know better, you do better and there really is no reason you should still be inhaling that blue liquid junk! I got you covered in this post.
When I started learning about natural living and green cleaning I was so overwhelmed by the recommendations and ideas online. I also didn’t have the financial means to experiment endlessly, so I ended up spending hours researching and experimenting to figure out how to make the switch from toxic products to more natural alternatives.
The only way I’ve found will work is to see it as a journey, tackling one product at a time. The best product to start with in my opinion is a good all-purpose spray. You can choose to make one yourself or choose from a number of truly green options. It’s up to you!
Up until a few years ago, I never stopped to consider what I was using to clean my home. Growing up it was normal to own conventional cleaners, but looking back there were a few red flags. We knew to stay out of the cupboard that had skeletons on the packaging and not to inhale when mom was cleaning the bathroom.
One day, I checked the label on some of my (natural) cleaning products and what I discovered haunted me! Learn everything you need to know about green cleaning in this guide for beginners!
Up until a few years ago, I never stopped to consider what I was using to clean my home. Growing up it was just normal to use conventional cleaners. One day, I decided to read the label on one of my favorite cleaners and man did that open a can of worms! No one wants to live in a place that is polluted with harmful chemicals. Luckily, you can prevent harm to yourself and our planet by using a few simple green cleaning products.
The number of times my partner washes his hands on a daily basis has become a standing gag amongst friends and family. There is just something about an unhygienic looking surface or even the idea of bacteria that completely grosses him out. Maybe you can relate. Unfortunately, many hand sanitizers and soaps are filled with equally nasty ingredients that are harmful to both our health and our planet. Most of us won’t use this item as often as my partner, but nonetheless, he inspired me to start looking for a healthier and natural alternative for keeping those hands clean!
