Simple Toxin Free Cleaning Habits
Cleaning products can be some of the most toxin filled products in your home. If you’re wanting to create habits to support your toxin free lifestyle, cleaning is a great place to start!
1. Evaluate Your Cleaning Products
You’ve likely been using the same cleaning products for years. It has become a habit to pick up the same products you know and love for your home without reading the labels or evaluating potential health risks.
Instead, take a look at the cleaning products in your cabinet and read through the ingredients. Check the ingredients on the Environmental Working Group website or simply search the potential health risks of a specific ingredient. You may be surprised at the toxins in your everyday cleaning products. Start by replacing one product at a time to work towards a toxin free home!
According to the EPA, the levels of indoor air pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels. This is largely due to toxins found in the home, many from cleaning products.
When making future cleaning supply purchases, make it a habit to always read the labels and evaluate the risks!
2. Regularly Wipe Down Surfaces
Regularly wiping down surfaces prevents viruses, bacteria, and toxins from lingering on surfaces and in the air.
Creating a habit of wiping down your most used surfaces – remote, doorknobs, light switches, faucets, or other high-touch areas, will eliminate toxins and help you and your family breathe easier.
3. Wash One Load a Day
Washing one load of laundry each day will not only help to get your laundry done more efficiently, but will also ensure you don’t have dirt, bacteria, and toxins sitting on your clothes and circulating into the air.
By washing one load a day, you limit the amount of time your dirty laundry sits in your home, creating a cleaner environment and a more efficient cleaning routine!
I hope these simple cleaning habits help you work towards toxin free living and creating a safer, cleaner home for you and your family.
