Our modern society has become very accustomed to purchasing the products that are found in our grocery stores and department stores with little to no research into how safe the ingredients are or are not safe for us. While this issue happens across many different types of products, it is extremely common when it comes to products to clean your home.
When you pick up a common home cleaning product off the shelf in a store and look at the ingredients, most people do not know what any of the ingredients are, nor their level of safety for our homes. Ultimately everything we do in our homes affects the health of our body. From the foods we eat, to the TV shows we watch, even to the products we use to keep our home clean. For a full list of common products found in our homes that are toxic, please take a look at this list of Household Chemical Products and Their Health Risk from the Cleveland Clinic.
Clean homes and organized homes are a strong foundation to a healthy and happy life. We are big fans of the KonMari method and always recommend it to friends and family looking to declutter their lives. Once you start to declutter your home, you quickly realize your home is full of toxic ingredients from cleaners, bug sprays, dryer sheets, weed killers and more. These assortment of products can impact your health because many of them seep into the air as a gas or odor and some of them we are applying directly onto surfaces in our home and we are then touching or walking over these products.
While I am not attempting to be a doctor or scientist, I would like to ask you a few questions as to whether plant-based home cleaning products are right for your home:
- Do you ever have migraines or unexplained headaches?
- Do you have unexplained skin ailments?
- Do you have babies or small children in your home?
- Do you have pets such as cats & dogs?
- Are you focused on your health?
- Do you spend significant amounts of time at home?
- Do you work from home?
If you answered yes to any of these, you should consider taking a look at the products you are currently using to clean your home. Most likely you are using way more toxic products than you realize to keep your home clean.
The good news is that with recent advances in cleaning technology, you can now find a variety of home cleaning products that are naturally derived, nontoxic and biodegradable. You no longer have to sacrifice a clean home for your health and the environment. Now you can have a clean home AND be healthy AND be good for the environment.
Here at HAUS Naturals, all of our products are naturally derived, non-toxic and biodegradable which is good for you, your family and any pets you may have. At the end of the day a clean home is great, but we want it to look more than clean, we want it to look spectacular and be natural.
Our most popular product is our All-Purpose Cleaner which uses cleaners derived from coconut to break down dirt naturally so that each spray leaves nothing behind but a fresh scent and gleaming clean. Knock out dirt with the power of plants and not harmful chemicals.
Next up is our Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish to keep your stainless steel refrigerator and stove top clean from fingerprints, paw prints, water marks and everything else that life throws at it. When cleaning is your therapy, HAUS Naturals is your method. Just wipe away and not a fingerprint in site. HAUS Naturals wants each of the surfaces in your home to look its best.
From there, we have our Granite Cleaner & Polish. Your granite, marble, quartz, onyx, slate and any non-porous stone finish will effortlessly convey a streak free, polished finish and clean look with only naturally derived, nontoxic and biodegradable ingredients.
Lastly, we have our Streak-Free Glass Cleaner which is ammonia-free (that stuff is seriously toxic) and does an amazing job keeping all your glass, windows & mirrors clean.
At the end of the day, I am writing this to hopefully get you to stop for a moment and consider all the products in your home which may be having a negative impact on your life. For many years I was oblivious as to the impact of all these items in my home, but once I started learning about them, it became very evident to me that I needed to make changes. And once I started removing them from my house and replacing them with natural alternatives, I started to feel much healthier.
