Mr. Clean: Non-Toxic Household Cleaners

Brianne

Wanna make your place sparkle like the top of Mr. Clean’s head? Skip the toxic cleaners for eco-friendly brands like SimpleGreen, Greenworks, Mrs. Meyers, Ecover, Method, Green Depot, and Seventh Generation. Cleaning products end up … in our homes, cars, and office as well as on dishes, countertops, furniture, clothes, floors, windows, and hovering through the air. Most of the conventional ones we’re used to are toxic and nearly all of the traditional cleaning products we have grown up with are petroleum-based and have perilous health and environmental implications. Sit back and think about it for a moment … our traditional household cleaners all have the warning seal, DO NOT CONSUME. Fair enough. But if it’s harmful to consume isn’t it harmful to breathe it in and let it leach into our skin? We think, yes! Instead of opting for cleaning products that annihilate everything in their path with toxic, there are plenty of natural products and methods that keep a house clean and fresh-smelling minus the toxic side effects. Try it!

The kiddos are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants. Children drink more water, eat more food, and breathe more air than adults … this means that children will have substantially heavier exposures than adults to any toxins that are present.

One of the largest culprits in ocean pollution is phosphates which are found in laundry detergents and other cleaning products. Americans use nearly 8.3 billion pounds of dry detergent and a billion gallons of liquid detergent each year, which in turn can kill life in rivers, streams, and oceans by causing phosphate-laden "algae blooms"

Clean Slate: Organic Cleaning Products for Babies

Greenista Girl Shivani

Wanna start fresh with a tidy home sans chems? Take a chance with Babyganics. Kevin and Keith, the two founding-fathers, are clean freaks like us Greenista Girls.  Their line is organic, VOC free, without fillers and dyes, and has superior performance. Try out the dish washer detergent ($9.49) or the toy and highchair cleaner ($4.99) – it’s strong enough to clean and still good for your babies, pets, and the environment. Currently, our government does not require manufacturers to list all chemicals and ingredients on product labels, and according to the National Research Council no toxic information is available for over 80% of the chemicals used in everyday products. Don’t fret about what you did in the past – take this opportunity to have a clean slate … and home.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Traces of chemicals can be found in every organ of the body within 26 seconds of exposure. Now that is a scary thought.

Soap Star: Kiss My Face Castille Soap

Brianne

Don’t want any day time drama when it comes to cleaning? Try Kiss My Face Peace Soap ($15.99/34 oz).  This castile soap is made by combining organic olive oil with coconut, hemp, and jojoba oils, and it’s biodegradable, veggie-based, vegan, and free of SLS, parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrances. There are four eco-licious scents like Grassy Mint, Lavender Mandarin, Pomegranate Acai, and Lemongrass Sage Clary. Bonus: A portion of the proceeds go to Seeds of Peace and the soap has over 101 uses…seriously! Try it on home, body, kitchen, and outdoors. Greenista Girl Brianne used it to wash dishes and her pooch … not at the same time.  Steamy, hunky lothario not included.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Castile soap is one of the oldest forms of soap in the world. During World War I, a shortage of natural oils resulted in the development of synthetic detergents — like conventional ones we use today — as a substitute for soap-making.
