How to detoxify your home environment?
We all want to have a perfect, clean house but when you have a big family, it is tricky to maintain your home and keep it clean. Toxins can gather in your house without you even knowing it. It is vital to detoxify your house in order to be healthy and active. Here are some tips:
- No shoes allowed inside. If you wear your shoes inside your house, you are transferring bacteria, germs, and pesticides. These end up on the floor, tracked onto carpets and end up on your clothes and skin. Ask the family members to take their shoes off before they enter the house, or as close to the door as possible.
- Grow indoor plants. If you live in a city, the air is contaminated with pollutants. It is very important to bring green plants into your home. These will act as natural air detoxifiers and will help clear polluted air.
- Get rid of chemicals. The chemicals we use to clean our home affect you and your family. It is inevitable that you will place some food on a table or counter that you have just cleaned with a chemical solution or your child will play on the floor that you have just cleaned with a chemical spray. There are many non-toxic cleaners on the market or you can use vinegar, baking soda, or lemon to clean your home.
