Spring Cleaning Essentials for a Toxin-Free Home

With spring around the corner comes spring cleaning! Have you ever thought about the chemicals and contaminants you are exposed to inside your own home? More now than ever, we spend most of our time inside our homes and it is important to try to reduce our toxic load wherever we can. We have listed our favourite holistic nutritionist approved chemical-free cleaning products for you to stock up on during your next grocery shop. 

 

Non-toxic cleaning products clean your home naturally without the use of added chemicals that can be harmful to your family and pets. These products are safe and use ingredients that do not negatively impact our eco-system. Use the EWG’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning to check your current cleaning products to see their level of safety. Simply type in the product name and look at the EWG rating to see if you should replace your current products with chemical-free ones.

 

If you’ve never tried green cleaning products before, check out this list below of my favourite non-toxic cleaning products for every space in your home. These are all EWG verified! The majority of these products can be found on Well.ca or in the health food cleaning product section of your local grocery store.
