How Toxic is your home? We all know that household cleaners and self-care products contain chemicals that can be harmful to our health. Have you ever wondered just How toxic your products are? Here’s a test! Take a few moments to really look at your products and see just how toxic your home is….you may be surprised. I am shocked that I scored an “F”…and we’re trying to be toxin free!
- It only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals from the products you use in your home to enter the bloodstream through your skin.
- There over 80,000 chemicals in use in the US alone, thousands of which are banned overseas.
- Our children are at risk. Babies are born with 200 chemicals coursing through their veins. Studies have found more than 287 chemicals linked to issues like birth defects, developmental delays, toxicity and even cancer.
- Manufacturers of the cleaning products and laundry detergents you use every day to clean your home (unlike food, beverage, cosmetic and other personal care products) are not required by federal law to list their ingredients. (1).
Take your score and make it a goal to improve. Removing toxins from our home helps not only those living there, but helps the planet globally, our waterways and ultimately our pockets. Please let me know your test score and good luck!
