If you haven’t switched to non-toxic household products yet, now is the time. Each year the U.S Poison Control hotline receives thousands of calls regarding accidental poisoning by common household cleaners and products. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) warns that 53 percentof the household cleaners they reviewed contain ingredients that can harm our lungs. Some products also contain carcinogens, such as formaldehyde and chloroform. Even more concerning, just seven percent of cleaners adequately disclose harmful ingredients. And the EWG warns many commercial “green cleaners” are equally misleading.
But there’s good news: Keeping a house clean does not require the use of any toxic chemicals. Simple, inexpensive ingredients, such as baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and salt get the job done. Coconut oil is a must-have ingredient to add to the mix. Traditional island communities have used coconuts and their sweet-tasting oil for thousands of years. Modern research suggests the oil has powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal abilities. It can handle the toughest scrubbing, reconditioning, and greasing jobs.
