Cleaning Up Our Cleaners- Getting Rid of Toxic Chemical Cleaners

It was the end of a packed day, we had just finished conducting an Introduction to Essential Oils class, and we were ready to relax and enjoy something cool and refreshing. Almost as soon as we got seated, a friendly young lady came by, chatting as she sprayed all the surrounding tables for the final cleaning of the night. She was using a typical disinfectant cleaner, but the fumes were over powering. Within a couple of minutes, I could feel my throat begin to feel scratchy and irritated and my nose burned from the smell: we left immediately before more damage could be done. These strong, toxic chemicals are all around us. In fact, it has been estimated that we are exposed to more chemicals in one day than our grandparents were in their lifetime!  If we want to preserve our health, we are going to have to take an active role in removing the toxic chemicals from our home and work environments.

What About Green Cleaners

Removing these chemicals can be an overwhelming task to undertake, however, the health benefits make it all worth it. One of the biggest challenges we faced was finding a non-toxic cleaner that really cleans. The toxic chemicals seem to be the muscles behind the cleaners, so many natural products fall short in cleaning potential.  Read your labels closely because many “Green Cleaners” contain similar toxic chemicals along with natural ingredients.

Want some good news?  Thieves Household Cleaner makes this task a breeze! This cleaner can replace every cleaner in your home, including both laundry and dish detergent, and it is safe to use. Get a few spray bottles, use the dilution chart on the bottle to mix up different strengths and you are armed to tackle any cleaning job in your home.

My favorite things about Thieves Household Cleaner:

  • It smells wonderful- after cleaning it leaves behind a nice, fresh smell instead of a strong chemical odor.
  • It is safe- in fact the FDA has approved it for internal consumption.  In contrast, some studies suggest that over 50% of natural plant based household cleaners contain suspected cancer causing chemicals.
  • It works! Thieves Household Cleaner cleans every type of surface and eliminates stains and odors.
  • It kills mold- “Tests have shown that Thieves oil blend is 97.27% effective in eliminating all species of mold encountered in buildings.”
  • It is economical- make dozens of bottles of cleaners from one bottle of concentrated Thieves Cleaner!

Do yourself a favor, do your whole household a favor~ start your spring cleaning in the cleaning cabinet this year. Get rid of those toxic chemical cleaners and replace them with a safe, effective, economical, good smelling, health promoting alternative; Thieves Household Cleaner makes the transition easy! Give it a try and be sure to stop by and share your favorite aspect or use of Thieves Household Cleaner.
