5 top reasons why to clean your home plant based!

You have probably heard me talking a lot about harsh chemicals and your health, here are the top 5 reasons you should be using a plant based cleaner.


1. Safety: 

Have you read the label on the back of a commercial cleaner?
Warning! Flammable! Do not ingest!
Keep out of reach of children!
Many chemicals used in household cleaners have not been tested for safety.  Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance classes accounting for calls to the National Poison Control Center. 
Many commercial cleaners contain endocrine disrupting chemicals , carcinogens, or neurotoxin ingredients.
Infants, children, and pets are even more vulnerable to chemical exposure because they are smaller and are unable to rid of toxins as easily as adults. 
It is definitely worth ditching harsh chemicals for a cleaners with plant- and mineral-based ingredients.

2. Air quality: 

Did you know that indoor air is 5–7 times more polluted than outdoor air? 
Most cleaning products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which have been associated with many health problems, including damage to the liver, kidneys, and the central nervous system. 
They have also been shown to harm our lungs and cause throat irritations and headaches. VOCs are released when products are used and can linger in the air long after we clean. 
When we breathe, we inhale the air—as well as whatever is in the air.


3. Environmental impact: 

Harsh chemicals found in cleaners are not only harmful to our bodies but they also have a major impact on the environment and are huge contributors to environmental pollution. 
Some conventional cleaning products contain ingredients that are toxic, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum.
Harsh chemicals can contaminate the water systems including ground water, rivers, streams, and lakes, which affects wildlife, plants, trees, and us! 
Plus, there are thousands of chemicals that are in cleaning products that have never been adequately tested for safety.


4. Convenience: 

It's much easier to clean with a few products that take care of all your cleaning needs, rather than having a whole arsenal of toxic products under your sink and in your bathrooms. 
With Thieves® Household Cleaner, you can tackle multiple cleaning jobs in your home without switching products as you clean!  It cleans countertops, windows, mirrors, floors, toilets, showers, and pretty much everything else. 
Plus, you don't have to worry about getting bleach stains on your clothes or accidentally mixing dangerous chemicals together. 
It’s worth a try for the convenience alone.

5. Cost: 

The cost of buying cleaners is expensive, especially if you have to buy multiple different cleaners for many different surfaces.  Thieves Household Cleaner is very cost effective especially due to its concentrated form. 
There are approximately 60 capsules of the cleaner in a 14.4-ounce bottle.  Using the medium degreasing ratio, you can get about 29 16-ounce cleaners.  That’s less than $1 a bottle!
Why worry about all the what if’s?  Become empowered and take charge of your home by using a cleaner with plant-based ingredients.
These are only five of the numerous reasons to use a plant-based product for cleaning.
