Time to Thoroughly Clean Your Toilet Without a Gas Mask

Did you know there’s no federal regulation of chemicals in household products? 
Rebecca Sutton, PhD, a senior scientist at the Environmental Working Group (EWG), explains, “In terms of household cleaners, neither ingredients nor products must meet any sort of safety standard, nor is any testing data or notification required before bringing a product to market.”

The average household contains about 62 toxic cleaning product chemicals, and we’re exposed to them routinely — from the phthalates in synthetic fragrances to the noxious fumes in oven cleaners. Ingredients in common household products have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders, hormone disruption and neurotoxicity. 
You may think, 'Well, I don't use cleaning products everyday.' That may be true but the build up of a little here and a little there puts a burden on your body's ability to flush out the toxins. Here is something to think about. Results following a study of just two years by French scientists found that nurses who used disinfectants to clean surfaces at least once a week had a 24 percent to 32 percent increased risk of developing lung disease.
Fortunately there are ways to keep your home clean. I have many recipes that I personally use that get the job done, leave every thing smelling fresh and NO Toxic fumes or other harmful chemicals. Scroll through my Blog posts to find some. If you don't find what you want be sure to contact me so I can get you a recipe for your situation.

If you have stains that need more work, try my Soft Scrub recipe. And for those really tough rust stains a pumice stone works really well.
