Figuring our how to avoid toxins in your home sounds overwhelming but it can actually be quite simple. Get 8 easy tips from Allison.
In this episode, host Allison Schaaf shares 8 simple ways to avoid toxins in your home.
1. Removing Shoes in the House
This is such an easy one that keeps dirt and other things your shoes have picked up out of the house.
2. Reduce Exposure to Cell Phones, Wifi, etc.
You can set your wifi on a timer or simply unplug it. We also try to keep our phones away from our bodies, and especially away from our kids. We also have a kill switch that switches off the electricity in our house. The exposure is so constant, I like having some breaks.
3. Cleaning Products
I love the brand Force of Nature for household cleaning. You receive a little pouch and make the cleaning solution fresh every week or so.
4. Laundry Detergent
We love the Molly’s Suds laundry detergent in our home.
5. Cloth Diapers
We used cloth diapers for both of our boys and found that it really wasn’t that time-intensive.
6. Using Microfiber for Cleaning
Microfiber picks up a lot of germs even just with water.
7. Use Cloth Napkins.
This is more environmental than about avoiding toxins but it is a nice habit that also elevates our meals a bit.
8. Opening the Windows
Letting in some fresh air can help clean the air in your home, especially if you use a gas stove, a fireplace, have just cleaned a lot or have recently painted. Even if you have air filters, opening the windows is helpful as well.
