Creating a healthier, less toxic home doesn’t have to be difficult. Get a good start with simple tips as you switch to natural products for a non-toxic home.
Our skin is the largest organ and it absorbs everything we put on it; including products we use in our cookware and for cleaning. While many of us focus on eating clean and switching to natural personal care products, we should never neglect the products we use in our home. By reducing your exposure to chemicals in our environment, you are able to reduce your risk for health issues due to the toxins in our food, our products and in our environment. Check out these simple secrets to a natural and non-toxic home!
1. Start slow
There is no need to get stressed about switching out all of your cleaning products. You do not have to go all out and spend a bomb. Do it slowly over time and focus on the most important things you need to replace as you go along. Start slow and simple from air fresheners, to laundry detergent, to soaps and to cleaning products. Make sure as you make the switch, opt for natural products without the harmful chemical ingredients.
Try Sunrider Sunbreeze® Essential Oil as an air freshener for your home. Add it to an ultrasonic diffuser for a good night sleep to relax and calm your mind.
2. Replace when you’ve used up your current product
Replace something only when you’ve used up your current product. There is no need to waste what you already have. Once you have finished your current product, switch to other healthier options!
Most shampoos in the market are often alkaline-based and are drying to your scalp and hair. Try Kandesn® Shampoo and Kandesn® Conditioner when you have finished using your current shampoo and conditioner. Its natural ingredients and herbal extracts will give your hair and scalp the moisture and shine they need.
3. Get an all-purpose natural cleaner
For a non-toxic cleaning, it will be best to get an all-purpose natural cleaner. With one product, you can use it to clean almost anything in your home – from countertops, to sinks, to floors and bathrooms. This can also save you costs without having to purchase different detergents for different cleaning tasks.
From sinks to surfaces, the dishwasher to floors and even carpet, Sunrider multipurpose cleaner – SunBright® SuperClean Household, is your go-to for an all-purpose natural cleaner. It contains ingredients such as tea tree and lemongrass oils that are natural antiseptics and disinfect with a crisp citrus scent that freshens your home. It is also non-toxic, eco-friendly with no artificial fragrances and cleans virtually any surface; this is your safest bet for the whole family!
Our home is our sanctuary. It may not be completely possible to have a home free of all toxins but if we could make an effort to choose non-toxic or less toxin products to improve our health and lives, why not?
