Do you ever feel like you’re struggling on a mission to create a safer and healthier home for your family? I’ve been on that journey for years, and I’m here to tell you that making the switch to cleaner cleaning products is a game-changer. The best part? It’s so much easier than you think, because you don’t need to dive headfirst into a sea of research and DIY projects. I’m here to share some simple tips and must-have products that will help you detox your home without the overwhelm.

Detox Your Home:
Start Small, Finish Big

If you’re new to the world of natural cleaning, take it one step at a time. Replace your products as you run out of them. You’ll quickly discover that many natural cleaning options are versatile and can replace multiple products in your cleaning arsenal. Before you know it, that cluttered cleaning closet will shrink, and you’ll breathe easier, both figuratively and literally.

On Guard Concentrate: Your Cleaning Superhero

This concentrate is a staple in my cleaning routine. I use it to clean my floors and in my all-purpose cleaning spray. I love that you can adjust the concentration based on your specific cleaning needs. When faced with stubborn grease or tough messes, simply use more concentrate. It’s that simple. Mix it with distilled water in a spray bottle, and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to create a delightful scent. I opt for cinnamon or clove in winter, lemon in spring, and a fresh signature scent for the rest of the year.

Norwex Cloths: Silver-Powered Cleaning

I keep Norwex cloths on hand for daily countertop and table cleanups, as well as dusting. For heavy-duty kitchen cleaning, I pair these cloths with my all-purpose spray, and they work wonders. To make dusting a more luxurious experience, add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your cloth. Sometimes it’s the little things that make cleaning enjoyable!

Liquid Castile Soap: The Swiss Army Knife of Cleaners

Liquid Castile soap is a must-have in any green home. I use it for laundry and as a fruit and veggie wash, but its uses extend far beyond. This unscented, clean soap is versatile enough to serve as body wash, dish soap, laundry detergent, and even pet shampoo. It’s a clean and gentle option for your whole household.

Baking Soda & Vinegar: The Dynamic Cleaning Duo

Never underestimate the power of baking soda and vinegar. They’re a dynamic duo for household cleaning (and science projects). I turn to this combo to tackle my kitchen sink’s toughest grease and grime. The bubbling action is oddly satisfying, and the results are impressive. But these two ingredients shine on their own as well. Baking soda helps absorb grease stains on clothing and keeps your fridge smelling fresh. Vinegar can clean everything from coffee makers to cutting boards.

Bonus Laundry Tip: For stubborn grease stains on your clothes, apply baking soda, let it sit for 10 minutes, then use a drop of dish soap and water to create a paste over the stain. Wait at least another 10 minutes, then wash as usual. It works like magic.

I understand that transitioning to toxin-free living might feel overwhelming. That’s why I encourage you to take small steps. It’s perfectly okay to hold on to a favorite product for a while if it brings you joy. Every change, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction. So, start detoxing your home today, and you’ll be amazed at the positive impact it has on your family’s health and well-being.
