Green Cleaning Your Home
“Cleaning! I haven’t even thought about cleaning!”
We’ve all been there. Regardless of your health, cleaning is always a chore. Sure, there are a few of you out there who love it. (Kudos!) But for the majority of us, it’s a never-ending battle to keep up with. And on top of the actual cleaning – now we have to consider toxicity and chemical reactions, bearing in mind things like carcinogenic ingredients, sensitive skin reactions, and basically anything that is potentially harmful to the body.
Whether in treatment or after cancer, sticking with non-toxic cleaning methods is one step closer to easing the mind on your journey to #LiveBetter. And guess what? Chances are you already have everything you need in your pantry to get started. Consider expensive products and misleading labels a thing of the past.
