Detox 14 Avoid the use of insect sprays

Insect sprays, pest strips and insect bombs have no place in the modern kitchen, as their vapours pollute the air you breathe, and their chemical residues accumulate on foods and food preparation areas — leading to ill-health. 

Fly wire screens on windows and doors should keep flies and mosquitoes away; however, if  insects beat the barriers, a simple fly swat is usually all that is needed. 

It’s important to keep fly-wire screens clean of dust and mould.  Use your vacuum cleaner to remove dust, and then wipe over screens using a hot water and vinegar solution.  The vinegar will act as an anti-mould agent.  Many people are allergic or intolerant to the microscopic spores and chemical vapours given off by moulds and mildew.


About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
