What You Need to Know About the Chemicals in Your Home

Chemicals are everywhere. They’re in the environment, in our food, and in our homes. Even the “safe” cleaners you use every day contain chemicals, and while there may be no way to completely eliminate them, there are things you can do to minimize their impact.

Wash, Rinse, Sanitize

First, I want to explain a bit about how cleaning and sanitizing works, because they are two different things.

In the sanitation business they have a mantra: wash, rinse, sanitize. The reason is, you can only sanitize a surface if it’s been cleaned. Bacteria needs water and a food source to thrive, so if the surface isn’t cleaned then bacteria may live despite sanitizing.

Wash, Rince, Sanitize

For most people, cleaning is all that’s needed followed by rinsing the surface. However, if you choose to sanitize make sure you thoroughly clean the surface first. For cleaning, a good soap is typically sufficient.

The first thing you need to know about the chemicals in your home is that almost all of them contain poisons.

All Cleaners and Detergents Contain Poisons

Yes, I’m talking about the household cleaners and detergents on the shelves of your local grocery store. Almost all of them contain poisons.

The key is dilution. All the products you buy at the store have been diluted to a point where the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) deems them safe for every day use.
