Transcript of Natural Cleaning Products

Being aware of these realities is the first step in preventing these toxins from causing harm in your own body.
There are lots of everyday items in your house that are great for cleaning.
Lemons
Vinegar
Baking Soda
On top of this, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, our indoor environment is two to five times more toxic than our outdoor environment.
The outdoor causes are obvious: smog, pollution, and natural allergens.
The average person will ingest 140-150 pounds of additives and chemicals every year from their food alone, creating a serious imbalance within the body.
Because toxins from food and household products are fat-soluble, the body will naturally create fat to safely store the toxins and protect the body.
This toxic fat will block nutrients, rob your energy, contaminate your cells, affect your moods and contribute to a host of symptoms and disease.
What can we do to minimize our exposure and neutralize their effects?
The acid in lemon juice removes dirt and rust stains. It's especially effective when mixed with salt; it turns into an excellent scouring paste. Or, dip the cut side of a lemon half in baking soda to tackle countertops. Also, brighten your whites with half a cup of lemon juice to the rinse cycle!
This acidic wonder can wipe out almost anything. Among natural cleaners, it's the clear champ. Distilled white vinegar creates an environment that inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. To clean your coffeemaker, fill it with a mixture of half vinegar and half water in your coffeepot and let it sit for an hour, then turn it on to complete the cycle. Rinse with water after. For your dishwasher, pour half a cup of vinegar into the reservoir and run an empty cycle. Clean your floors (not marble or wood!) with 1/4 cup of vinegar and warm water. And, clean drains by pouring vinegar down them!
Baking soda can be used in many ways. You can soak your stove burners in a dishpan of a gallon of warm water and 1/2 a cup of baking soda for 30 minutes. Or, fill stained teacups and coffee mugs with 2/3 water and 1/3 baking soda, soak them overnight, then rub with a sponge in the morning. To remove odours from upholstered furniture, sprinkle baking soda on it and then vacuum.
Unfortunately, we are exposed to toxic materials everywhere we go.
This is caused by a long list of toxic substances found in our household products and moulds in our living spaces.
In some cases, it's been found that air measurements indoors are up to 100 times more polluted!
Not to worry, we've done the hard part for you. The search is over, and the best natural products have been found!

The Pink Solution can be found at Costco or thepinksolution.ca.
Some easy homemade solutions are vinegar water and lemon water.
Salt
Salt's granular texture makes it perfectly suited for scouring. Table salt is the cheapest choice! It gives extra abrasion when cleaning glassware. Sprinkle it onto the outside of a lemon peel and rub it on stained mugs until clean. You can also cover grease splatters, oven spills, and wooden counters and tables with salt, leave it for an hour, and then brush it away and clean with a damp sponge.
