Go Green On Your Home!!!
We are so careful when it comes to what goes in our mouths is it organic? Is it healthy? But one thing we do overlook is the fact that how the chemicals around us can affect us. The air we breathe in is toxic? Many cleaning products we use are toxic and can have side effects on her health. We cannot totally avoid using these products but can definitely decrease our exposure to them.
Well it might sound stressing to where to start from? We are not talking of ripping your carpets or chipping your furniture.
Leave shoes outside.
The simplest way to control the amount of germs and dirt getting in your home is by removing your outside. Most families have shoe racks right next to the entrance door where you can remove your boots to get into slippers.
Open the windows.
The air we breathe in is five times more polluted then the outside air. Open the curtains and let the fresh air in. draw back those beautiful curtains and let the sunshine into your room.
Detox your dry cleaning.
When the dry cleaning comes remove the plastic bags and let it hang in a hall or a shed for two days to get rid of perchloroethylene that sticks to the fibers. Inhaling it can trigger respiratory and eye irritation, headaches, dizziness and vision problems.
Go Easy on pesticides.
If you decide to get rid of the pesticides in your house decide whether it is necessary to use a pesticide or the issue can be solved using the over the counter and eco-friendly products.
If you’ve got ants, plug holes in your walls and keep counters cleaner. For agents those cause diseases—such as rodents or fleas—call a professional who knows how to properly fumigate and air out your home.
If you intend the issue yourself go for the least toxic products you can find.
For an all-purpose cleaner you can mix 1/2 teaspoon of washing soda with a teaspoon of a natural liquid dish wash and 2 cups of warm water and put it in a spray bottle. You will get a natural non-toxic cleanser.
