When a new year starts, a lot of people decide to cleanse. One thing that they forget is that not only do you want to detoxify your body you also want to detoxify your home.
Here are 5 ways to do that.
Instead make your own cleaning products using white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, castile soap, baking soda & essential oils. Just google to find DIY recipes.
2. Ditch the toxic air fresheners and instead use essential oils.
You can diffuse them if you have a diffuser or you can put a couple of drops on cotton balls & put them in your rooms.
3. Use no VOC paints if you have to paint. VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. They can cause respiratory problems, lung, heart or kidney damage or even cancer.
4. Be careful when you buy furniture. A lot of materials give off toxic chemicals. Shop for more eco friendly furniture.
5. Check out your carpeting and flooring before buying. Those can off gas chemicals too. Most home improvement stores have more eco friendly options so make sure you ask about them.
