Hey there mamas!
I have been in a big cleaning mood lately, and I find it’s better to actually want to clean than to procrastinate and not want to do it. So getting in the right mood makes doing house chores so much easier. You know what else makes it easier? Having the right cleaning tools. I am excited to say that after years of trying different things when cleaning I have finally found the holy grail of cleaning tools! Do you want to know what it is? Then keep reading!
The One Cleaning Tool Every Mom Needs
So before I announce the best cleaning tool ever, let’s go over some important info. As moms, part of our job is to make sure that our homes are healthy and safe. Most traditional household cleaners contain toxic chemicals that are unsafe and so this means we need to be extra cautious with what we use around the house.
- The truth about these chemicals:
- Out of the 80,000+ chemicals in use today, the EPA only has concrete information on a mere 5%.1
- Exposure to chemicals at any level can cause irreparable damage.
Cleaning products found in every home are linked to Cancer!
- Work-at-home moms are 54% more likely to die from cancer than women who work elsewhere2
- An estimated 5% of childhood cancer in the US is caused by chemical exposure.
- Everyday chemicals have increased the incidence of leukemia, brain cancer, and childhood cancer in the US by more than 20%.
- Breathing problems.
- Women who use traditional cleaning products have a nearly 15% loss of lung function.
- Irritants in the environment including household cleaners can bring on asthma symptoms.
- Poor indoor air quality.
- Indoor air pollution ranks among the top five environmental risks to public health.
- Levels of pollutants in the indoor air are estimated to be anywhere from 2-5 — and sometimes 100 — times higher than outdoor levels.
- 89% of all poisonings happen at home
- 2 children die daily from avoidable poisonings, and over 300 are treated in the ER.
- 10,318 children under 5 were poisoned from household cleaners in 2006.
Now that all those facts are out of the way! Onto the cleaning tool!
