Cleaning, Cosmetics & Chemicals in the Home
I am a massive proponent of chemical free living. The vast number of chemicals we are surrounded by in our daily lives is FRIGHTENING! Many of these chemicals are new to our generation and the effects of them are unknown. In other cases we already know that these are endocrine (hormone) disruptors and carcinogens. The health of our families is at risk BUT once you know how it's actually really easy to reduce or eliminate chemicals in your house.
To start I recommend making your own cleaning products. There are loads of recipes on the internet - some good some not so effective but give it a go. Be prepared to put in a little more elbow grease but things like adding white vinegar and baking soda to your cleaning cupboard will make life easier and much much safer for you and your family. Try googling chemical free living and see how you can reduce your chemical exposure. We'll be posting more on this topic soon.
