Every day we bombard our homes with an assortment of chemicals and toxins in the endless quest for a spotless house. Whilst giving our homes the sparkle we’re after these chemicals have a less than beneficial effect on our health. Studies have found links between chemicals used in cleaning products and an increase in allergies, asthma and eczema.
We aren’t the only ones to suffer from these chemicals. The manufacture and disposal of these chemical goods have a damaging effect to the environment and fragile eco-systems.
So, what are the alternatives? Is it possible to achieve a clean and healthy home without using chemical laden cleaning products?
Thankfully, yes it is. It’s encouraging to see that there is an increase in chemical free cleaning products available. As well as a move towards resurrecting some of the classic cleaning remedies used way before modern day cleaning products were readily available.
