Detox 8 Miracle cleaners come at a cost

Using harsh chemicals as a substitute for basic cleanliness and hygiene is fraught with danger for the environment and for your health.  Therefore, exclude ammonia, chlorine and phosphate-based cleaners from beneath your kitchen and laundry sinks.  Obsessive use of these anti-bacterial cleaning products leads to:
1. Pollution of the air you breathe.

2. Emergence of even more harmful strains of bacteria — superbugs.

3. Unnecessary anxiety about salmonella and E. coli bacteria through clever TV advertising —  leading to fear and guilt.

4.  A weaker immune system which means more childhood asthma, eczema and hayfever.  The immune system needs to be challenged, to be healthy.

5. Lowering of basic cleanliness and hygiene practices because of reliance on miracle cleaners.

It’s easy to keep your home sparkling clean using: white vinegar, bicarb soda (sodium carbonate, baking soda) for stains and stubborn dirt, and an environment-friendly, citrus-based detergent.

A fun cleaning hint
Dip half a lemon in salt and rub the bottom of a copper-based saucepan vigorously with the lemon pad.  Rinse with hot water.  Polish dry with a soft cloth.  You will be amazed by the result!

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.
