Review: DIY Non-Toxic Cleaning Recipes from Mommypotamus post image

Did you know that in any average home there are over 500 different chemical cleaners? Most of these are extremely toxic and must be kept out of the reach of small children.

Certainly, if a small amount is ingested — it can be a poison and be fatal, but did you know that regular exposure to the air borne essence of these chemicals and through skin contact can be just as dangerous — albeit not immediate?

Clearly, no one wants anything like this in their home, especially if there are young children or pets around.

Good news! Heather Dessinger of Mommypotamus has written an e-book that features all non- toxic, easy, cheap, DIY household cleaners for every aspect of your home!

For instance, have you noticed the price of laundry detergent going up all the time? I have and I only have two people at home now, but I go through a lot of laundry detergent it seems.

Lanudery detergent The laundry detergent, found on page 71 of this book, is made from simple soap of only 3 ingredients plus non-toxic washing soda. You can add an essential oil if you like a scent (I like unscented) and voila! You have a fantastic, safe for you and safe for the environment laundry cleaner that is cheap and easy to make!

What about oven cleaner? Have you read all the warnings on that label? And how would you avoid breathing this in while wiping out the oven? You can’t!

But if you make your own, following Heather’s recipe — your oven will sparkle and you will be safe!

These DIY non-toxic cleaning products are just as effective — is not more so, than commercial brands. The essential oils added to them are very effective disinfectants against e-coli,  MSRA, salmonella, listeria and pneumonia among others.

Did you ever think you could make your own toilet cleaner that is effective? Well, you can! Heather uses several essential oils that are known bacteria killers, yet will not harm the user.

Additionally, these recipes are borax free. Some folks think borax is toxic, so Heather has left it out of all the recipes.

    This sounds like an interesting and valuable e-book. A lot of commerical cleaners make you sick just smelling them so imagine what they do to you if you get them on your skin or consume some by accident!
