You may not realize just how much toxic substances in the daily household cleaners are affecting your health. Some of these chemicals have been linked to lung disease and asthma if exposed too often.

A study done by the University of Bergen in Norway found that being exposed to chemical cleaners daily for 20 years caused the equivalent lung damage of smoking 20 cigarettes a day!

You will especially want to avoid the spray cleaners which can linger in the air for hours after they have been used.

This can cause harm to you, your family and even your pets. Even if you deep clean once in a while with these harsh chemicals, it’s important to use the natural cleaners for everyday spills, messes and maintenance cleaning.

Many people think that it will be difficult to concoct natural cleaners, but they are actually simple to make. Many of the ingredients in safe, non-toxic cleaner recipes can already be found in most homes.

Things like baking soda, vinegar, and water are commonly found in these cleaners.

Simply Self Storage put together a large list of natural cleaning recipes and best practices for non-toxic cleaners to help you keep your home shiny and clean—naturally!
