Love it or hate it…we can never run out of opportunities for cleaning the house.
I don’t really fall on the love it end of that spectrum and a clean room has a pretty short expiration date around here with two littles in the midst. All cleaning routines end in rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat. “Sissy girl, get your shoes off the counter,” rinse and repeat. “Who peed all over the toilet,” rinse and repeat.
Ever wonder how much of your life is spent on cleaning? During the earlier #momlife years…more than you probably want to think about! I’ve seen statistics on how much time we spend sleeping, something like 12-15 years of your life are spent sleeping. Good thing I enjoy that! All that time cleaning has to add up to a substantial amount of time too. Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat. That’s lots of time…likely years, of handling and breathing in toxic cleaning chemicals. And, you aren’t the only one in your house getting exposed. Ugh!
There is a better way… Time to GO GREEN with our CLEANING ROUTINE!
But how? We did it in our house with essential oils and a few other inexpensive basics, like vinegar and baking soda. Easier than you’d think!
Why essential oils? Because they are trending now? *insert eye roll and head bobble* I know, but it really is legit!
The official word to help explain why we love it so much…
Essential oils provide an alternative to cleaning products with dangerous chemicals. Many of the cleaning products on the market today are full of powerful yet potentially dangerous chemicals. While these products claim to provide effective cleansing benefits, they often contain synthetic chemicals and questionable ingredients that may put your family at risk when used around the home. The beauty of using essential oils for cleaning is that they only contain the natural chemical components originally found within the oil, so when used in proper quantities, they do not pose a risk and are safe to be used around the house. If you have small children in the home, or just want to ensure that your family isn’t being exposed to unnecessary toxins and chemicals every day, essential oils provide a safe, natural solution for keeping the home clean.
BONUS…my house smells amazing now! My daughter says we need to use our oils to clean so our house doesn’t smell like feet. Um, yes…that too!
One more added benefit of green cleaning products…the kids can help clean! My daughter loves to help and now she can. (Soaking this up now! I’m sure she will get over it soon.) First cleaning responsibility…keep their bathroom sink clean! This sink does not have teeth guys…why is it covered in toothpaste?
