The Big Detox Part Two: Your home

In our last blog we looked at how detoxing your body was an essential part of looking after yourself. This blog is all about how important it is to detox your home!

Spring will be here before we know it, and then we will all be madly cleaning to spruce up our homes before the warm weather arrives. Our homes can be filled with hundreds of different chemicals from various cleaning products, we will look at the ways you can reduce the nasties in your home.

 

Use natural cleaning products – Is it organic?

Looking for organic household cleaning brands such as Ecover and Delphis eco is a fail-safe way to avoid most of the nasty chemicals that are in many household products.

Bin the artificial air fresheners

Essential oils can be used in many ways to make your home smell wonderful. The easiest way to create a room diffuser is to add a few drops of your favourite scent to cotton wool and place it in a jar, there are hundreds of ideas online, and they will save you a fortune too!

Open the windows – let the outside in!

May sound simple but recirculating the air is very important!

Get rid of that limescale!

Softened water leaves bathrooms and kitchens clean and shiny, reducing the need for cleaning products such as Calgon and Viakal. Soft water starts to remove existing limescale not only on your taps but also cleans inside your pipework, and you won’t have to de-scale the kettle!

Take your shoes off

Shoes bring in contaminants from the outside leave the germs at the door instead of spreading them around the house.

Get green fingered

Use potted plants inside to purify the air within the home.

Swap dryer sheets for dryer balls

100% Wool dryer balls are non-toxic, hypoallergenic and baby safe. They also shorten drying time and some last more than 1000+ loads.
