Area of concern: Floors
The soles of our feet is one of the most absorbent part of our body. Many commercial cleaners contain harsh petro-chemicals and irritating scents that leave behind a residue, even after rinsing.
Children and pets are particularly vulnerable due to their smaller size and proximity to the ground. For instance, bleach or chlorine found in some floor cleaners poses risk of cancer, liver and kidney damage.
Regularly mop your floors with non-toxic cleaners like Resparkle’s Organic Floor Cleaner Concentrate. The added lemon & mint essential oils leave your home smelling fresh and clean without chemicals.
Area of concern: Carpets
Carpets are able hold 8 times their weight in toxin-filled trapped dirt in the fibers and underneath it.
Most carpet cleaners are highly toxic leaving dangerous fumes and residues like perchloregthlene and ammonium hydroxide. The former is a known carcinogen which can damage the liver, kidneys, and nervous system while the latter is a corrosive which can irritate eyes, skin, and respiratory passages.
Vacuum and/or air it regularly. For carpet stains, sprinkle bi-carb and spray on Resparkle’s Organic Kitchen & Multi-Surface Cleaner.
Area of concern: Healthy diet in a toxic world
For many, healthy living is focused on our diet supplemented by vitamins and superfoods. It is equally important to avoid absorbing toxins from everyday products into our bodies.
Harmful chemicals absorbed through our skin and lungs are even more dangerous than digesting it through our mouths. That is because the toxins bypass our body’s natural defense (our digestive system), heading straight into our bloodstream and to our organs where they wreck their havoc.
Gaining knowledge of the toxins and reading labels is the first crucial step towards a truly healthy life.
Take baby steps in detoxing your home such as removing household cleaners that have a Danger/Warning label and switching to safer natural alternatives.
Area of concern: Artificial Fragrance in Air-Fresheners/Scented Candles
Scenting your home using synthetic fragrance is probably one of the most dangerous yet unnecessary toxin you can have at home.
According to the NRDC (Natural Resource Defense Council), air-fresheners/scented candles contain harmful chemicals such as phthalates that aggravate asthma, cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects and reproductive problems. A plug-in air freshener contained more than 20 different volatile organic compounds, with more than one-third classified as toxic or hazardous under US federal laws.

Use 100% natural essential oils to scent your home. For fresh clean scent, use a mix of lemon and mint essential oils, a little goes a long way.
Area of concern: Kitchen Surfaces
For most of us, kitchen is where we spend a large amount of time, making it crucial to keep the nasty chemicals out. Unfortunately, most all purpose cleaners leave residues of toxic chemicals on countertops and dishes even after you’ve washed it off, exposing us and our children to unwanted substances that have the potential to cause countless health issues.
