Why I Changed To Natural Cleaning Products
The reason I changed to natural cleaning products really came down to my own health journey, one thing that has become extremely important to me is making sure my household is as toxic free as possible. While there are somethings that our household is still transitioning from, there are a few non negotiables:
-My skincare & beauty products
-Household natural cleaning products
I am all about meeting people half way, and when we decided to finally swap out our cleaning products to natural cleaning products, it wasn’t an overnight fix. I proposed to my partner that we needed to use natural cleaning products, and his rebuttal was twofold:
“they won’t be as good”
“they will be too expensive & we have all of the products we need already”
So, I set out to introduce him to the very effective world of toxic free natural cleaning products that won’t break the bank.
Did you know that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reviewed the safety data of over 1000 ingredients used in commercial household cleaning products. The results were pretty shocking studies have shown, that more than half ingredients used in generic cleaners can be harmful to the lungs, and a whopping 1 in 5 ingredients that can trigger asthma (even in healthy individuals).
First thing to go was our trusty spray and wipe, I swapped this out really easily. Give this homemade natural cleaning products DIY recipe a go:

Literally it so easy, Pop vinegar, water and eucalyptus into a spray bottle, and give it a thorough shake and its good to go. Remember to give it a good shake before every use!
Next, was our laundry. Our household seems to have the never-ending washing pile. I thought to tackle this one we should look at something that is easy, natural and convenient as I really didn’t want to try play around with any DIY recipes. I want to feel confident that I have provided the safest toxic free household environment for myself, my partner, loved ones and fur kids. Walking down the aisle at Woolworths, which is where one of my favourite Aussie brands comes into the picture. Bosisto’s & their sensitive laundry range which ticked all the boxes.
