Step-by-Step Toxin-Free Living: Week 4

Toxin-Free Floor Cleaner

When it comes to our flooring, it was tough to find a product on the market that had no warnings.

The floor is where our babies play, our animals relax, and they have a role in our whole-home toxicity.

The convenience of grabbing carpet or hard surface cleaner at the store is nice, but it’s not worth it if you’re choosing organ, reproductive, and respiratory- destroying products in the process.

Hard Surface Flooring

Option 1:

The one we use in our home (because we use it in place of TEN toxic cleaners) is Thieves Household Cleaner.

We simply fill this refillable mop with hot water, add one capful of Thieves Household Cleaner, and mop away with amazing results!

The best part about this cleaner is the wonderful smell!

It’s like Christmas and coziness all wrapped up into one. We always get compliments after mopping!

Option 2:

I have used Babyganics products in the past, so I chose them as the in-store buy, but please know that this company does have some products that rate an “F,” and therefore cannot be fully trusted.

Babyganics Floor Cleaner

I am choosing from EWG but have never actually used this cleaner. I wouldn’t personally waste my time only because I know Thieves Household Cleaner is so effective and I always have it on hand.

However, if you’re looking for a quick buy and are willing to try it out, Babyganics rates as an “A,” even if it does have a vision concern.

Carpet Cleaners

Unfortunately there were no carpet cleaners that scored an “A” without any concerns, but feel free to see what did make the “A” list here.

Option 1:

When it comes to carpets, Thieves still comes in handy! I add one capful of Thieves Household Cleaner to 1 C baking soda, sprinkle on the carpet and scrub in with a bristled brush in those extra stubborn spots.

Let sit for an hour, and vacuum.

Option 2:

Add 1C baking soda to a glass bowl.

Drop 5 or 6 drops of Young Living’s Purification essential oil blend or Citrus Fresh blend in and stir.

Sprinkle on carpet. Scrub stubborn spots. Let sit for an hour, and vacuum.

Final Thoughts

For our family, buying doesn’t make sense in the store. Why waste our money on something that might work, when I already have Thieves Household Cleaner and purifying oils in my cabinet?

It’s also super easy to make, works so well, and leaves our home smelling so fresh!

YL + Toxin-Free Living

I chose Young Living after spending a long time researching.

Young Living made sense for our family because it was a source I could trust when I kept running into different companies off the shelf that I couldn’t.

However you choose to live toxin-free, make sure you research using free resources like ewg.org to learn the truth about your products and keep your family as safe as possible for generations to come.
