Let's clean with clean ingredients!
Great gifts for you, your mom or Mother in Law or any other mama you want to spoil.
In the last year plus, we were told to disinfect EVERYTHING and many of us still disinfect much more than we did before. Let's start by saying that I LOVE CLEAN! I love, an organized and clean space. I am constantly organizing and wiping around the house and always finding a new drawer or corner that needs to be redone. I also love everything to be shiny and free of dirt or dust (I guess this might be a bit of an OCD).
You can check out my "organization" highlight to learn more about that.
Ever since my first pregnancy I was a lot more cautious of what we use around the house. I got rid of many cleaning supplies and replaced them with cleaner brands. This year I had discovered "Clean Smart" along with a few other great brands that are non-toxic.
It is important to understand the bad ingredients in some of the commonly found disinfectants.
Lets look at 2 common ingredients:
Quats (quaternary ammonium compounds) are very harsh disinfectant chemicals commonly found in disinfectant wipes (such as lysol), sprays and other household cleaners that are designed to kill germs. Known to cause allergy symptoms and asthma.
Bleach, a staple in many homes, is very irritating and corrosive to the skin, lungs, and eyes. Additionally, it has been known to burn human tissue internally or externally.
Aside from these 2 ingredients there are more that you should learn about and try to avoid such as, Fragrance for instance. We explain a bit more about this in my "Non-Toxic Baby Essentials Guide"
Why do I love and recommend Clean- Smart?!
CleanSmart is a non-toxic cleaner that doesn't only clean but it also disinfects surfaces! This is my go to cleaner around the house (and my car). I feel comfortable using it in my children's rooms, the play room, kitchen and really all around the house. It is made of Hypocholorous (HOCL) which is a naturally occurring germ killer. With a simple electrolyzed process, clean-smart replicate HOCL and bottles it for us. HOCL has the ability to kill germs with a pH-balanced chemistry that will not irritate skin. AMAZING RIGHT?!
