What is a toxin?

Sick and Tired of Using Chemical Cleaners? Adding to the toxic burden of the body is NOT worth it! Let’s define a toxin.toxins_in_household_cleaners

A toxin is:

  • A chemical or poison known to have harmful effects on the body.
  • Potential human illness or injury when inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through the skin.

Home sources may include: indoor air, cleaners, and pesticides. The cleaning products we buy and the scented air fresheners we spray and inhale are full of chemicals that can make us sick. Many of these toxins may not leave the body easily. This could make it almost impossible for you to recover if you find yourself getting sick. Luckily, there are resources available to help you clean your home without harming yourself or others. If you would like to learn more about how to clean your home and safely rid your homes of toxins, you can read –
According to the EPA 80% of people’s exposure to chemicals occurs in the HOME. In a 5-year study, the EPA found that many homes had chemical levels 70 times higher than that of outside air and that common household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution. Products that have the potential to cause cancer are often the subjects of lawsuits from those who have got the deadly disease. The same is true of those who have taken defective drugs and subsequently got the disease leading to things like a Zantac lawsuit becoming a more common sight amongst legal circles.

What is under your sink? If the label on the container states CAUTION – between 2T and 2 cups ingested can be lethal to an adult. WARNING – as little as 1 tsp can be lethal. DANGER – a few drops can be lethal.

Our Homes Shouldn’t be Hazardous to Our Health

Chemicals can be found in many places inside your home:

The furniture we sit on (flame retardants)

What we clean surfaces with (all kinds of chemicals)

What we use to wash our clothing (chemicals that act like synthetic estrogens)

What we use to wash our kitchen ware (these can leave a residue)

So, what can you do about the toxins in your home?

Here are 5 ideas:

Breathe Cleaner Air – Bring out the Aroma Ball, keep a spritzer in the bathroom, and diffuse! Buy real wood and look for eco-friendly home supplies and furnishings.

Cleanse Your Fruits and Veggies – Just because you may buy organic foods, doesn’t mean your fresh food is clean. Get rid of unwanted hitchhikers and pesticides

Switch to Homemade Cleaning Products – Ditch that toxic waste dump of chemical and petroleum-based cleaners Enjoy wonderful simple recipes to get you started for your shower, bathtub, glass stovetop, toilets, and counters. If you are not a great lover of cleaning, you may benefit from hiring Professional House Cleaning Services.

Dump the synthetic fragrances in your clothing – Time to toss the commercial dryer sheets that are soaked in chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Simply throw a white felt square or a felted wool ball with some Lavender EO in your dryer for your own homemade non-toxic dryer “sheet.” Make your own laundry soap.

Take Outdoor Shoes Off at the Door and Hang dry cleaning in the garage for a few days – Our shoes can track in everything from dirt to chemicals to parasites. Treated clothing diffuses chemicals into the air.
