This DIY all-purpose cleaner will make your kitchen a tad less toxic!
More people are becoming conscious about the products they use in their home.
What chemicals are used in the ingredients? Will it harm my family in the long run? These are all questions that parents are starting to take seriously when doing their shopping.
Sadly, a lot of home cleaners have hidden toxins that are not even listed on product labels.
For example, a toxin like phthalate, which is used in scented household products like air freshener, has been proven to have endocrine disrupting properties. A 2003 study found a link between the toxin and poor human semen quality.
But in some countries, companies are not required to list all the phthalates used to create scents in products, and instead use words like “fragrance”.
