Easy steps to detox and declutter your home.
Detoxing is more than just drinking green juice. The act of cleaning should be extending to all areas of your life, including your home. Many of us know that our home environment can impact our state of mind, particularly if it’s no longer serving us correctly. To help you detox your home this month, check out these tips on how to improve your living space.
Improve the air
The most important thing is air quality. It’s important to vacuum your property regularly, particularly in winter when there’s most dust in the air and we don’t open the windows as much. Refrain from using scented products such as plug-in air fresheners and candles. We often associate scents with freshness, but that’s simply not the case. Plants, however, provide us with clean, natural air and oxygen.
Opt for an eco-friendly mattress
Flame retardant chemicals, foam, and artificial materials can wreak long-term havoc on the endocrine system. Since you spend around six to eight hours in bed a day, it’s a good idea to ensure your mattress serves you well. Make sure it’s certified chemical-free.
Tend to the pantry
The less plastic in your home, the better. Buy in bulk and store in glass. Look at the ingredients in the food that you buy. Ideally, purchase whole-food plants that are better for your health and environment.
Our very cleaning products can be harming our health and environment. Harsh chemicals and toxic substances can be found in many cleaning products in today’s market. Instead, use gentle, sulfate-free, fragrance-free and plant-based detergents and products. You really only need vinegar, water, and baking soda. For tough jobs, you can bring out natural plant-based cleaners.
