When you clean your home, do you try to use more natural products, or do you use traditional strong chemicals? Switching to natural products can be beneficial for the health of you and your family. Harsh chemicals can cause breathing issues, trigger allergies, and cause skin irritations in humans and pets.
Some people think that using more natural cleaners will clean less effectively. But that is not true. Natural agents can do a great job cleaning, sometimes even better than chemicals. Many natural products you find in stores are eco-friendly, meaning they have not been tested on animals and contribute to a healthier environment because of how they were made and what happens when they are disposed of. Harsh chemicals not only affect air quality, but also our water systems.
You may even choose to make your own products. There are many DIY videos online that teach you how to make natural cleaning products. Many of them use ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils. These can be cost-effective. If you don’t want to make your own, though, there is a variety to choose from online and in stores.
