You know, coming out of the brainwashing from those that stand to profit off of consumers…I had to really become ill** before realizing how dangerous chemicals are…even those promoted as “helping” us, such as cleaners. It’s really hard to break away from that mindset because we’ve been misled to believe that natural is not as powerful as chemical.
Meanwhile, chemicals destroy the very thing that keeps us healthy: your immune system.
So, I personally switched to baking soda, vinegar, and borax as my main cleaners. I got this recipe from a natural health magazine:
6 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Borax
Mix these two with a small amount of hot water in a quart spray bottle, then add enough filtered water to make a quart.
Vinegar and baking soda make a good toilet bowl cleaner. Baking soda is a natural antibacterial and a nice scrub for tubs and such.
Farmer’s Almanac also has an article up on natural cleaners. I like the uses of ash for scrubbing oil stains off of brick.
Being the change you wish to see in the world starts at home — detoxing our world is part of that. It’s difficult to feel God’s presence when you’re toxic.
Be well, my friends.
**edited: Being so toxic from heavy metals, I would get migraines from car exhaust fumes, even if I only walked a total of twelve blocks to the grocery and back. Or being exposed to cigarette smoke. Or perfumes/after shave…and on…it proved to me how toxic chemicals really are and left no doubt in my mind that they destroy one’s health.
