Natural Home Tips By Room
Here are some tips that will help turn each room of your home into a natural home!
Sheets – Even organic bedding may be treated with chemical-based finishes. Take a closer look at products with labels like “permanent press”, “wrinkle resistant” or “easy care.”
Cleaning – Consider plant-based cleaners for wiping down countertops and scrubbing veggies. They contain naturally-derived ingredients, which break down dirt and pack a powerful cleaning punch.
Pantry – Fill it thoughtfully, cook with care and forget the artificial ingredients.
Did you know that youcan compost coffee filters, tea bags, cardboard scraps, brown paper bags, paper towels, shredded newspaper, toothpicks, burnt matches, lint and pet fur.
Clothing – If you love adorable prints and patterns, consider play clothes and pjs colored with organic or vegetable-based dyes.
Crib Mattress –Opt for a mattress made with natural materials like organic cotton, wool padding, and PVC-free rubber or latex.
Washing Up – Consider sulfate-free personal care products. Sulfates, found in many shampoos, cleansers and soaps can irritate skin
Detergent - Choose ultra-concentrated formulas, which help reduce water use and packaging. Less detergent, less water and less energy. If only there was less to wash…
