5 Natural Cleaning Products To Keep Your Kids Safe
Cleaning ain’t easy….for more reasons than one.
A highly overlooked part of being a parent, especially to newborns-toddlers, is deciding on the sorts of cleaning products the household will use. We as adults are so used to cleaning products whose strong scents don’t alarm us until it’s time to consider the effects they might have on younger children.
Because we don’t
always lick windows or crawl around the floors and put our hands in our mouths for no reason at all, we don’t worry about whether or not we’ll ingest the potential toxins within the cleaning products we use. But when infants enter the picture, it’s time to take a closer look at the cleaning solutions they come in contact with.
To help calm your jitters, I’ve found 5 natural cleaning products to keep your kids safe and anxiety low:
Fresh Wave Home Spray Natural Odor Eliminator
Fresh Wave natural odor eliminators use the power of nature and molecular science to get rid of organic and inorganic odors. Rather than masking unwanted odors, these products go to the source to destroy the odor. More importantly, Fresh Wave products use no toxins, so they are safe to use around people and pets.
Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot Dish Soap
If you’re a fan of citrus scents like I am, you’ll love the Sapadilla grapefruit + bergamot dish soap! It features a fresh blend of sweet, citrusy goodness, combining top notes of lemon and litsea cubeba, heart notes of juicy grapefruit and sweet orange, anchored with deep and delicious bergamot.
Bio Green Crystals Glass & Window Cleaner
You couldn’t stop my nephew from licking a window, even if your life depended on it. For some reason it’s one of his (and many other babies’) favourite pastimes! It entertains him much more than all the expensive toys we all bought him for Christmas.
His affinity for windows makes us all concerned about both keeping them clean at all times and using non-toxic chemicals to do it. That’s why I’m a pretty big fan of the Bio Green Crystals glass and window cleaner. It’s the world’s first doctor endorsed, nutraceutical grade cleaner specifically made for people (meaning it is food-grade safe!).
ATTITUDE Window & Mirror Cleaner
There’s no point using natural cleaning products like the Bio Green Crystals glass and window cleaner just to erase its purpose by using toxic liquid solutions.
That’s why I’d suggest pairing the Bio Green Crystals glass and window cleaner with the ATTITUDE window & mirror cleaner, which is both free of carcinogen ingredients and by products (IARC group 1 & 2) and free of 1,4-dioxane and ethylene oxide. You can also rest assured knowing that the cleaning solution has been certified eco-friendly by EcoLogo, is vegan and was not tested on animals.
Ecover Floor Soap Made with Linseed Oil
Last but not least, when it comes to cleaning your floors, you should consider using natural cleaning products like the Ecover floor soap made with linseed oil. It leaves no chemical residue and has a fresh, plant-based, fragrance, Suitable for all non-treated floors such as tiles, marble, concrete and linoleum. It’s also alcohol-free, which is a huge plus!
Another awesome tip when it comes to cleaning solutions and children is to make sure to properly store them out of reach. I’d suggest using a door/window sensor accessory on your cupboard of choice to make sure that you’re immediately alerted in the event that any of your children manage to open the door.
