Did you know:

  • Over 90% of poison exposures happen at home?

  • Organic pollutants, found in many common cleaners and even air fresheners, are found at levels 2 – 5 times higher inside your home than out?

 

  • Common cleaners give off fumes that can potentially increase the risk of kids developing asthma, the most common chronic childhood disease.

 

  • 1 in 13 school-aged children has asthma. Rates in children under five has increased more than 160% from 1980 – 1994.

 

  • Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants.

 

  • Your skin is your largest organ and the chemicals from you cleaners can be absorbed through your skin?

 

  • An average home generates over 25 pounds of toxic, hazardous waste each year. Much of this waste can be attributed to household cleaning products

 

  • The EPA says that only a fraction of the more than 81,000 registered chemicals have gone through testing for human health concerns.

 

  • A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning soap scum off a shower stall could inhale three times the acute exposure limit of some chemicals.

While you make your home cleaner, you can make your family healthier.

Why I use Organic Cleaning Products:

“I owned and operated a cleaning business for 10 years.  Prior to using organic products, I was getting daily headaches.

It honestly took me a little while to connect the dots between the chemicals in the cleaning products and my health issues.

Once I switched to the Get Clean product line, I noticed an immediate change for the better!

My headaches were gone, my allergy issues got better, I saved money AND they worked.”       ~ Claire

How I Clean Natural for Pennies

Owning a house cleaning business taught me a few things.  One of those was the less I paid for my supplies, the more profit I received!  That was definitely a motivator for me as well as getting the job done well AND efficiently.

Remember my story on why and how I switched to natural cleaning products?  I still cannot believe the harmful stuff I was using and exposing myself too!

This is a picture of my old cleaning bucket.  Any of it look familiar?  You most likely have these in your home too.  I thought I needed ALL these for the many jobs that come from keeping a house clean. 

toxic cleaners

I went from this full bucket to just 3 products to clean everything…..bathroom, kitchen, dusting, floors, disinfecting, everything!

shaklee 3 products

Because each one is a concentrate, it lasts a looooong time.

Here is an example of how I clean natural for pennies with just the Basic H.

Can you believe those numbers???

I used to think the Dollar Store was such a bargain too, but when you break down the cost,

look at how you can clean for pennies!

You can order yours here and start saving a ton of money too.

Clean Green: FREE Webinar hosted by a professional house cleaner

I LOVE the feel of a clean home!  Don’t you?  But have you ever thought maybe after ‘cleaning’ you actually made your house ‘dirtier’?  Say, what?!

Think of it this way.  You wouldn’t let your kids play with toxic chemicals, so why would you let your baby crawl over a floor that’s just been wiped with them?  Hmmmm….ever think of it that way?

Did you know:

~ Over 90% of poison exposures happen at home?

~ Chlorine bleach is the #1 household chemical involved in poisoning?

~ Organic pollutants, found in many common cleaners and even air fresheners, are found at levels 2 – 5 times higher inside your home than out?

~ Common cleaners give off fumes that can potentially increase the risk of kids developing asthma, the most common chronic childhood disease.

~ 1 in 13 school-aged children has asthma. Rates in children under five has increased more than 160% from 1980 – 1994.

~ Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants.

~ A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning soap scum off a shower stall could inhale three times the acute exposure limit of some chemicals.

These are alarming facts!  To be honest I never thought about these things until a few years ago.  I owned and operated a cleaning business for over 10 years and these are the products I used regularly.

How to Clean the Kitchen Sink Naturally

Waking up to a clean kitchen sink makes me happy!  

I feel like it starts my day a little more peaceful.

Here is how I clean my kitchen sink:

1. Daily spray it down with Basic H in the degreaser formula.

2. Scrub

3. Dry it with a microfiber cloth.

4. Once a week (or more if needed) I clean it with Scour OFF

    to get it nice and white again.

I also made a video HERE

Surfaces for use

To deep clean my sink, I put this paste on a sponge or microfiber cloth and rub down my sink.

Then I rinse it off.

That’s IT. So easy!

To give it that brand new look, I also wipe off the excess water with my microfiber cloth to dry the sink.

Here are a couple before and after pictures from friends who love and use Scour Off.

The Real Dirt on Clean: Part 2

4 simple ways to get clean
Your home should be the safest, healthiest, cleanest place in the whole world.
So we’ve put together some pretty easy things you can do to make your family safer and your home healthier.
And, as it turns out, what’s good for your home is good for the earth and everyone else on it, too. So let’s make our
homes healthy. Let’s clean our hearts out. Let’s Get Clean.

1. Get the dirt.

Educate yourself about what you bring into your home.  Check out the chemical list in PART 1

2. Have a clean-for-all.

Put on the gloves and get rid of the nasty stuff in your home. Responsibly, of course. Your
local waste collection service has guidelines for proper household hazardous waste disposal, as well as collection
sites for things like paint, batteries, and cleaners. Whatever you do, please don’t toss this stuff in the garbage.

3. Welcome healthy into your home.

Commit to carefully considering everything that crosses your doorstep.
Here are some safe, healthy things to have in your home:


• Cleaners that are truly cleaner. Get Clean offers product choices that are: nontoxic, natural, biodegradable,
concentrated, and hypoallergenic. To learn more, please visit HERE 

• Fresh air. Open your windows to reduce indoor air pollution.

• Essential oils. Use these instead of air fresheners.

• Plants. Besides being nice to look at, they can absorb harmful gases and help clean the air.

• Organic cotton bedding. Avoid standard bedding treated with chemicals.

• Floors made of recycled and renewable resources.

• Healthier paint. That new paint smell can be as nasty as it smells. Choose low VOC paint instead.

4. Clean up our collective home.

Make the earth healthier for all of us who call it home by using these things in yours:

• Compact fluorescent lighting. They last a whole lot longer.

• Energy Star-rated appliances. Save money and energy.

• A low-flush toilet. Replace the largest user of water in your house. Ultra low flushers cut water use by one-fifth.

• Low-flow showerheads. Same pressure. Less water.

• Your flicker finger. Turn off lights and appliances when you’re not using them.

• Gray water system. Install one to recycle used household water for your lawn.

• Tankless water heater. Save money, energy, and space in the broom closet.

 

Leave a comment to let me know how you are getting your house clean!

Looking forward to our next visit,

The Real Dirt on Clean: Part 1

You know that good, healthy feeling you get when you’ve just
cleaned house? Sorry to spoil it, but you may have just made
your home dirtier.
Think of it this way. You wouldn’t let your kids play with toxic
chemicals, so why would you let the baby crawl over a floor that’s
just been wiped with them? That’s much more dangerous than the
orange juice that was just there.

are you living in a toxic home

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How dangerous? Just take a look at these statistics.
• Over 90% of poison exposures happen at home.

• Common chlorine bleach is the #1 household chemical
involved in poisoning.

• Organic pollutants, found in many common cleaners and
even air fresheners, are found at levels 2 to 5 times higher
inside your home than out.

• A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning scale off shower
walls could inhale three times the “acute one-hour exposure
limit” for glycol ether-containing products set by the California
Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.

• Common cleaners give off fumes that can potentially
increase the risk of kids developing asthma, the most
common chronic childhood disease.

• 1 in 13 school-aged children has asthma. Rates in children
under five have increased more than 160% from 1980 – 1994.

• Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants. Pound
for pound of body weight, children drink more water, eat more
food, and breathe more air than adults. The implication of this
is that children will have substantially heavier exposures than
adults to any toxicants that are present in water, food, or air.

• If your home is anything like the average U.S. home, you
generate more than 20 pounds of household hazardous waste
each year (the EPA designates toilet cleaners, tub and tile
cleaners, oven cleaners, and bleach as hazardous waste).

To find out what’s lurking on your shelves, go to the National
Institutes of Health Library of Medicine Household Products
Database. You can search almost any brand of cleaner you use, find
out what’s in it, and uncover its links to health effects. Or search
by chemical ingredients (see list below for some examples) and
discover what brands contain it. The information may shock you.

 

Chemical ingredients to look out for:
• Sodium hydroxide
• Hydrochloric acid
• Butyl cellosolve
(2-Butoxyethanol)
• Formaldehyde
• Bleach (sodium hypochlorite)
• Ammonia
• Sulfamic acid
• Petroleum distillates
• Sulfuric acid
• Lye (potassium hydroxide)
• Morpholine

www.householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov/ingredients.htm


YUCK!  Did you find any on there that are in your house?  Don’t forget laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, etc.

You may remember my story from HERE on chemical poisoning.

I seriously had no idea that I was doing more harm than good every time I cleaned!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for part 2.  We will look at solutions! 

Now get to it and check your cleaning bottles and the ingredients.

Looking forward to our next visit,

10-Reasons-to-LOVE-Basic-H_thumb.jpg

10 Reasons to Love Basic H

10 Reasons to LOVE Basic H

1. Stop living in a toxic home

Some of the most questionable chemicals used regularly in household products are ammonia, chlorine bleach, phenol, butyl cellosolve, and formaldehyde—all of which can be found under your kitchen sink. Basic H2 is nontoxic and safe for your family.

2. Everything and the kitchen sink
Basic H2 cleans it all from kitchens and bathrooms to appliances, woodwork, mirrors, painted walls, and floors—it even does windows.  So, toss those single-purpose cleaners like sink and tile cleaners. Mix ¼ teaspoon in 16 oz. of water in a Get Clean spray bottle for all purpose cleaning, and 2 drops in 16 oz. of water to clean windows.

3. Eliminate your ammonia-based window cleaner
Basic H2 cleans windows without streaking while being a great alternative to leading brands. Basic H2 window cleaner is equivalent in performance to Windex® Original.*

4. Removes the impossible
From lipstick on a linen napkin to crayons on a painted wall, full-strength Basic H2 comes to the rescue.

5. Great for cutting grease
Tough on greasy barbecue grills, ovens, and even oil spots on concrete. Mix 2 oz. per gallon of water for a super degreaser formula.

6. Does odd jobs
One tablespoon of Basic H2 in a bucket of hot water lifts off old wallpaper. One and a half teaspoons in a half gallon cleans sticky paintbrushes. Just soak for 24 hours and rinse with hot tap water.

7. Saves money
One 16 oz. bottle of Basic H2 diluted per label directions makes 214 bottles (28 oz.) of ready-to-use all-purpose cleaner.

8. Camping and traveling companion
Take along a small size of Basic H2 to keep clothes, dishes, and everything else clean. And you’ll help by keeping the great outdoors unpolluted.

9. Easy on the planet
Biodegradable and environmentally friendly, Basic H2 handles even hard-to-clean jobs without phosphates, borates, nitrates, or other stuff the planet doesn’t appreciate.

10. Less in the landfill
Basic H2 is super concentrated, so you’ll use fewer bottles of cleaning products throughout the year.

Liquid Magic: Basic H2

I clean Only with non-toxic cleaners in my home.  You can read about that change in my life HERE.

I absolutely LOVE Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate.

shaklee-basic-H2-kit

It is Safe, Powerful, Non-Toxic and Cost-Effective

No rinse, No residue, No streak formula.

It is super concentrated and from ONE bottle I get a window cleaner, an all-purpose and a degreaser.   One bottle of Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate  = over 500 16oz bottles of all-purpose cleaner!  It is a concentrate so you add your own water.  This means less waste and keeps the cost down.  I also use these.

Window/Glass

1 to 2 drops of Basic H2 + 16 oz water ….YES Drops!

All-Purpose

1/4tsp.  Basic H2 + 16 oz water

Degreaser

1   1/2 tsp Basic H2 + 16 oz water

I use this stuff ALL over my house…..windows, countertops, sinks, granite, floors, dusting, spot cleaning, cupboard doors, shampooing the carpet, the car….I even bath my dog in it and shave my legs with it. There are hundreds of uses for just one bottle of concentrate.

It is safe for all sealed surfaces.

It is safe for my children, too, which is the most important!

Basic H2 has been on the market for over 50 years!

Here is what just a few happy moms had to say about Basic H2………

I LOVE Basic H2. I run around my home with it looking for new uses and never cease to be amazed!   Missy

I absolutely LOVE Basic H, Scour Off and Basic G!! They are my go to products for everything I clean! I also love knowing that when I use these products, especially in my kitchen around food and my newborn son that they are natural, safe, and biodegradable! I will NEVER go back to toxic/chemical based cleaners ever again!   Jennifer

I love Basic H2! I use it on everything! I removed ink from carpet and wall paint from our clothes. It’s like liquid magic!  Kindra

Gotta say the Basic H2! I use it on my hard wood floors and when I set baby down so she can play with her toys I feel good my floor is cleaned with naturaly non toxin products!  Courtnie

Check out THIS post on  Jeneane’s  story of how she uses Basic H2 in her business.

 

What about you?  Ready to have your own Basic H2 story?

Have a Blessed Day!
