Green Cleaning Products

Green cleaning products aren't about the word green. I've learned that lots of toxic household products now contain this word to trick you into thinking the product is harmless.

Many household products that you have in your house right now contain chemicals which are very unsafe and unhealthy for you and your family.

We don't notice it, but we're breathing these chemicals into our bodies during and after we use them. So what do we do?

I say, we make better buying decisions. And if you can't find something better at the store, you can just order it online.

There are companies that offer safe household cleaning products. Right now I'm trying out Maleleuca's line of green cleaning products and I'll let you guys know how it goes once I try them out for a while.

Another option is to try to make your own. I haven't done this but I've heard you can mix some common (and natural) things together to make this sort of thing happen. I'll have to do some research for that if there is an interest...

So, here's a short list of common household products to consider replacing with healthier options...
  • Detergents
  • Degreasers
  • Stain removers
  • Pesticdes
  • Paint
  • Cleaners
  • Toothpaste
  • Deoderant
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Makeup
Some of the chemicals in products like these have been directly linked to allergies, birth defects, skin reactions, headaches, depression, chest pains, bad sleep, cancer, and other scary things.

Here are some common ingredients to avoid (when looking through the ingredients on the labels)...

  • Alkalies
  • Acids
  • Phosphates
  • Bleach
  • Bentonite
  • Propylene glycol
  • Diethanolamine
  • Benzylphanone
  • Sodium benzoate
More information coming soon as I continue learning. Please--if you have any tips, share them below.
