cleaning {the home}

Home! A place that we get to clean! A place that we should be cleaning with toxin-free products that will keep ourselves and our families safe! Check out the next post to see some surprising facts.


Know Better, Do Better

In 1976, Congress passed the Toxic Substance Control Act which included between 63,000 - 100,000 chemicals that were on the market. These chemicals were grandfathered in, without any testing, and are simply unregulated. Today, only about 50% of the chemicals on the market have been subject to any chemical testing at all. Under this act, manufacturers are protected by trade secret laws, so that they do not even have to post what ingredients are in their products. If you go look at a bottle of household cleaner, you may be surprised to see that they only list a small percentage of the ingredients in the bottle. 

There are so many ingredients to be aware of due to health-causing properties: alcohol, aluminum, DEA/TEA, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, TALC, Parebens an more. Check out David Suzuki's 'dirty dozen' list at: https://goo.gl/QPm862
