Put Down the Chemicals!
By Angela Rose
Okay, I get it. Everyone is super worried about this virus and wanting to be extra cautious. I’m wiping my groceries down too, friend. But NOT with toxic cleaners! I totally get WHY people are doing it but did you know that most active ingredients in Lysol and other products are toxic to cats and dogs, are asthmagens, and increase the risk of antibiotic resistance? Yikes. I’m seeing all of these videos showing people how to wipe down all of their groceries with Lysol and I want to throw myself in front of them screaming NOOOO! Dramatic, I know.
But there’s a better way, and here’s how…
Good ‘ole all-natural soap and hot water remove the majority of germs from hands, objects, and surfaces. You don’t have to spray everything down with products full of toxic chemicals, especially since you’re supposed to rinse it off if you’re going to be using food on the surface you just cleaned. Have you been rinsing off the Lysol, bleach or other toxic chemical-laden recommended products? If not then it’s still on your food when you serve it to your kids.
You can use plain old vinegar! (As long as it has at least 5% acetic acid) If you’re diluting the vinegar with water just make sure it’s at least a 50/50 ratio. You can also use several other all-natural options and of course my favorite includes essential oils. Can’t find Lysol on the shelves? No problem! That’s actually a GOOD thing!
I saw a hilarious meme the other day that had me ROLLING! But then it got me thinking…
This could actually happen! With so many people spraying down their groceries and clothes with toxic cleaners, the exposure really could be so harmful that they’ll be suing in a decade! Let’s just not go down that road okay? It’s time to get the chemicals OUT of your home!
Friends, it’s not time to panic but it is time to be wise. That’s why I’m hosting a 28-day challenge starting on April 6th called The Healthy Home Challenge ~ from Panicked to Prepared and I would love for you to jump in with me. This challenge is going to help calm your nerves, prep your house the best you can, and give you the tools you need to be as prepared as possible all while supporting your immune system!
