20 Homemade DIY Cleaning Product Alternative’s That Every Home Needs (Natural + Toxin Free)

Cleaning Products Have a Damaging Impact on Women’s Health

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that:

Cleaning products are necessary for maintaining attractive and healthful conditions in the home and workplace. In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefits of cleaning, the removal of dust, allergens, and infectious agents is crucial to maintaining a healthful indoor environment.

The real reality is we are damaging our DNA and we are changing our genetic makeup for future generations. There was a study a few years back that said the umbilical cord of an average American baby has over 200 known chemicals in it. Eighty percent of the common chemicals that are used daily in this country, we know almost nothing about. Our children are being born toxic and we have no idea if these toxins are already doing some sort of damage their brains, their immune system, their reproductive system, and any other developing organs. Are we unknowingly setting ourselves up for failure in the womb, even before birth?

Scientists and researchers are concerned that many of these chemicals may be carcinogenic or wreak havoc with our hormones, our body’s regulating system. But the impact of these chemicals may be most severe on the developing brain, Perera said.
Brain development is the “most complete and most rapid during the first nine months, prenatally,” she said. During that time, neural connections and pathways are being developed.
“Any interference by a physical stress like a toxic chemical or other stressor can disrupt this natural progression that is so very delicate and complex,” explained Perera.
Though the group hopes to come up with regulatory recommendations to reduce this toxic burden, there are some simple things that individuals can do to reduce their exposure.
 
Children exposed to higher levels of these pesticides have been found to have higher rates of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
 
Most products have a  warning label that is typed in bold “Keep Out of Reach of Children”.  As consumers, we believe that if our children don’t ingest these products they will not be harmed by them. This can be far from the truth. Think about other common methods of exposure are through the skin and our respiratory tract. WE are along with our children are often in contact with the chemical residues housecleaning products do leave behind, by crawling, lying and sitting on the freshly cleaned floor.
 
 

Scientists at Norway’s University of Bergen tracked 6,000 people, with an average age of 34 at the time of enrollment in the study, who used the cleaning products over a period of two decades, according to the research published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

They found that lung function decline in women who regularly used the products, such as those who worked as cleaners, was equivalent over the period to those with a 20-cigarette daily smoking habit.

Everyday chemicals carry toxic burden

These chemicals can chemicals bind together.
Exposure to phthalates has been associated with lower IQ levels.
These chemicals can also be found in the shampoos, conditioners, body sprays, hair sprays, perfumes, make up, cleaning supplies, colognes, soap and nail polish that we use.
 
The results follow a study by French scientists in September 2017 that found nurses who used disinfectants to clean surfaces at least once a week had a 24 percent to 32 percent increased risk of developing lung disease.
 
 Scientists and researchers are concerned that many of these chemicals may be carcinogenic or wreak havoc with our hormones, our body’s regulating system.
 
It’s not enough to be aware of all the outdoor chemicals that we are exposed to everyday but inside our homes we can have more power and control. We have to be more aware about using chemical cleaners, paints, glues, body lotions, toothpastes, underarm deodorants, hair products and pesticides. Instead start to begin to use products that don’t pollute our very own bodies. We must read labels, make our own products and do our own research. I can’t stress this enough. We must take a stand for our health. Stop using commercial products that are laced with unknown and harmful body damaging products.
 
Did you know that products we use every day may contain toxic chemicals and has been linked to women’s health issues? They are hidden endocrine disruptors and are very tricky chemicals that play havoc on our bodies. “We are all routinely exposed to endocrine disruptors, and this has the potential to significantly harm the health of our youth,” said Renee Sharp, EWG’s director of research. “It’s important to do what we can to avoid them, but at the same time we can’t shop our way out of the problem. We need to have a real chemical policy reform.” The longer the length of ingredients on your food label means how much more unhealthy it is for you to consume. When an item contains a host of ingredients that most likely you cant even pronounce or remember to spell you can bet your lucky dollar that the natural nutrients are long gone. These highly processed frank n foods are very difficult for the body to break down and some of the chemicals will become stored in your body. Click on this link to see what you should avoid.
 

Pesticides, herbicides, GMOs in our food, fluoride and chlorine and trace pharmaceutical residue in the water supplies, methane, carbon monoxide and industrial pollutants in the air, and the toxic chemicals in our everyday household products.

No wonder our bodies are completely bombarded and overwhelmed with the constant exposed to toxic chemicals through the air that we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat, and the personal care products and cleaning products we use.

Every Cell in your body responds to the foods you eat, the products you put on your body to the house hold chemicals that you purchase for your home. All of these things have a direct impact on your hormones and in return your hormones have a direct impact on every major system in your body. Not to mention that our body is lacking certain nutrients that heavily influence the function of every cell in our body. 

For starters, the three essential categories into which most of the hazardous ingredients in household cleaning products fall are:
 
1.  Carcinogens– Carcinogens cause cancer and/or promote cancer’s growth.
2.  Endocrine disruptors – Endocrine disruptors mimic human hormones, confusing the body with false signals.  Exposure to endocrine disruptors can lead to numerous health concerns including reproductive, developmental, growth and behavior problems. Endocrine disruptors have been linked to reduced fertility, premature puberty, miscarriage, menstrual problems, challenged immune systems, abnormal prostate size, ADHD, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and certain cancers.
3.  Neurotoxins – Neurotoxins alter neurons, affecting brain activity, causing a range of problems from headaches to loss of intellect
 
TAKING CUES FROM PRODUCT LABELS
 
You may find it time-consuming to research all of the ingredients in the cleaning products under the kitchen sink, in your garage or even in the bathroom but trust me. It is worth the hassle.  Over all, product warning labels can be a useful first line of defense. These companies are required by law to include label warnings on their cleaning products if harmful ingredients are included. From safest to most dangerous, the warning signals are:
 
Signal Word
Toxicity if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin*
Caution
One ounce to a pint may be harmful or fatal
Warning
One teaspoon to one ounce may be harmful or fatal
Danger
One taste to one teaspoon is fatal
 
You can reduce your exposure to them by eating organic foods, making your own cleaning chemicals and using alternative pest control methods.
 

What goes on your body, goes in your body?

Sometimes I want to shake people and say, “Wake Up”! You have the power to make a difference in your life. You’ve always had the power. People are using products on their body and in their homes and that are hormone disruptors. No one can force you to become more aware of what you put on your body and what you put in your body. What you eat is just as important as what you put on your body.   Adjusting your life, reading labels and catering to your specific health needs isn’t easy but it will benefit you in the long run. This is one of the smartest decisions that you can make. Not only will you start to look and feel better but think of the medical cost that you could be saving your future self.

 

Throughout my latest book, you will find useful, informative and easy to understand recipes for your mind, body and spirit. When I started writing this book, I wanted to introduce you to the idea of a cleaner less toxic world and for you to learn just how simply easy it is for you to start creating your own cleaning recipes throughout your home but this book has transformed into so much more than just a book full of all natural DIY recipes.

Bathroom Mold disinfecting spray

You don’t have to grab bleach to get rid of mold in your bathroom. This 3 combo all natural mixture will do the trick.  I will spray the areas in my bathroom and leave it on for 10 minutes and wipe the moldy areas away. Vodka might be a little bit pricey but you won’t be breathing in toxic chemicals or having to worry about your skin absorbing a list of toxic chemicals.  Vinegar is naturally antimicrobial, tea tree is natural fungicide which can eliminate any mold or mildew problems and kills black mold spores!

Simple all natural air freshener

Add your water to the spray bottle, next add your baking soda and your favorite essential oil. I always put the lid back on & give it a good shake to mix.  You can spray this on fabric or in the air. Just like you would any store bought synthetic air spray but without the harmful chemicals! Make sure you label all your bottles with a marker to keep track of your DIY products.

This homemade laundry detergent recipe not only keeps those harsh chemicals away but it’s also a cheaper, lasts longer and with all-natural ingredients, it’s a greener, healthier alternative to commercial chemically loaded products. There’s nothing more natural or better than natural products like vinegar, baking soda and essential oils. All my recipes are cheap and healthy plus it is an easy routine that helps to keep your clothes in top shape AND you can feel good about using these products in your home.

 Homemade powder laundry soap

    2/3 cup Super-Washing Soda

   3 tbsp. Baking Soda

    ½ cup Liquid Castile soap

5 cups of water, divided

Directions

    Bring 5 cups of water to a boil.

    Pour washing soda into a large glass bowl then slowly stir in 2 cups of boiling water until washing soda is completely dissolved. Don’t forget to label with a black permanent marker.

Homemade dryer sheets:

2 cup of vinegar

20 drops of your favorite essential oil scents.

Cut 10 pieces of fabric in wash cloths size squares.

1 glass container with a lid

Mix the vinegar and the essential oil scents in the glass container, fold your fabric and place in your jar. Give your jar a good shake and mix the solution all over your fabric.  There are two ways you can do this. 1. After you’ve already dried your clothes, turn your dryer on the no heat cycle and put a few of your dryer sheets in your dried load for about 10 minutes.  But 1st squeeze out excess liquid before you add them in the dryer the sheets should be damp not soaking wet. 2.  Remove a fabric sheet from the jar and squeeze so it is not dripping. Add a sheet to the dryer with wet laundry and dry as usual. Also, don’t be afraid to mix essential oils. Lavender, eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary are very refreshing scents when combined. My favorite homemade laundry scent combinations are:

    Zen Spa – 10 drops eucalyptus, 5 drops lavender

    Floral Dream – 8 drops ylang ylang, 8 drops jasmine

This fabric softener will keep your clothes fresh smelling for a long period of time.

 

You can also just place a wool dryer ball in your and it will naturally help soften and reduce static by bouncing and rubbing against the fabric as it dries.

 FABRIC SOFTENER RECIPE

 1.5 tsp of baking soda

 3.5 cups apple cedar vinegar

 20 drops of essential oil (your choice).

Large plastic bottle

After bubbles go away, add the essential oils. Place the lid on it and give it a good shake. Store it on a dark, cool place. You can use also create a large batch and use this natural softener by adding it in washing machine or soaking your clothes in it. This fabric softener will keep your clothes fresh smelling for a long period of time. Don’t forget to label with a black permanent marker.

 

Honey Vanilla Bubble Bath Recipe

    1/2 cup jojoba, almond, or olive oil

    1/4 cup local, raw or Manuka honey

    1/2 cup Dr. Bonners Liquid Castile Soap

     3 tablespoons of baking soda

   3 tablespoons of Epsom salt

    1 egg white

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or Mason jar and then pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup under running water. This bubble bath doesn’t have any preservatives and it contains egg whites therefore it has a short lifespan. I keep this in my fridge and use it within a week. The egg white is the key to making your bathwater frothy and bubbly.

DIY Liquid Hand Soap

    1/2 cup Dr. Bronners Liquid Castile Soap

    1/2 cup distilled water

    1 TB vitamin E oil (optional)

    1 TB sweet almond oil or olive oil or jojoba oil (optional)

    5 drops lemon essential oil

    5 drops lavender essential oil

    In a Mason jar or recycled soap dispenser, add the water first (to prevent bubbles) then the liquid castile soap, followed by the oils. Shake the ingredients together.

    Shake the soap dispenser before using, then squirt a small amount on your hands as needed, rinsing with water.

 

Natural Citrus Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap

    1/2 cup Dr. Bonners Liquid Castile Soap

    1/2 cup distilled water

    1 TB vitamin E oil

    1 TB sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, olive oil or jojoba oil

    5 drops lemon essential oil

    5 drops On Guard essential oil

    In a Mason jar or recycled soap dispenser, add the water first (to prevent bubbles) then the liquid castile soap, followed by the oils. Shake the ingredients together.

    Shake the soap dispenser before using, then squirt a small amount on your hands as needed, rinsing with water.

Homemade Shaving Cream

    1 cup shea butter

    1 cup virgin coconut oil

     3 Tablespoons vitamin E oil

    3 Tablespoons sweet almond oil or olive oil or jojoba oil

     3 Tablespoons Dr. Bonners Liquid Castile Soap

     30 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)

     30 drops of lemon essential oil (optional)

I like to use an electric mixer, mixing all ingredients until stiff peaks are formed (approximately 2-3 minutes). Store in a mason jar with a sealable lid.

Home Remedies to help with vaginal odor

12 Weird Things Women Do to Their Vaginas

Having a vagina is like having to carry around a high maintenance model who is very temperamental. You always are worried about what materials you put on her. What styles look best and she always has to have the best clothing. You have to be careful with cutting her hair. You have to be sure to take her to the doctor each year for a check up. You can’t just shove things in her, but sometimes you have no choice.  I’ve spent years inspecting my vagina from every possible angle and she still leaves me guessing, “Okay, what’s next?”   Have you ever taken a look at your own “personal space” A lot of women never do, and that’s so strange to me. So far, I’ve mastered  to predict my menstrual cycle to a reasonable degree of accuracy. It still baffles me that I am  supposed to go about my day and do all of your things without being distracted by the sensation of liquid leaving your body and that the fact that I am shedding the entire lining of my uterus . Men really have no clue what we women go through unless they are a OBGYN doctor.  I’m still trying to figure everything else out.  Also, the fact it’s so elastic. It stretches to accommodate squeezing out a baby, and yet in most cases, it has no trouble contracting back to its original size.  Our vaginas are very talented in the sense that she is very musical . She likes to queef and I can’t get her to stop. No reason to be alarmed  queefing is  only air trapped in the vagina but during yoga, sex or just walking around can be a bit much. Clearly I can’t be the only person left on this planet that feels a little perplexed by her attitude to be in complete control all the time.  On a more serious note. let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. The truth is The vagina comes in all shapes and sizes. 

Vagina’s are naturally wet, for the most part. That’s just part of the our ordeal. Normal vaginal discharge is a self-cleaning method. (No reason to be alarmed there)  Another question.  Why is it so taboo to call a vagina, a vagina? Why do people have to pick different nick names instead of calling it what it is for instance personal space ,snatch, vajayjay, coochie, lucy, cootie-cat, hoo-ha, lady parts, beaver, punani, love taco , twat and I could go on and on with a ton of more nick names.

It all starts with puberty. The moment we see that 1st hair. We are so excited and why?! We have no clue of the things ahead of us.  We start to become very smelly from head to toe. It is  normal and healthy for you to have some vaginal odor. However, strong vaginal odor can be the result of douching, excessive washing, wearing clothes that are too tight and certain chemicals in your soaps, bacterial growth, yeast infections, poor hygiene, hormonal changes, and  or sexually transmitted diseases. This strong odor can become embarrassing.

If you have symptoms like redness, itching, burning and irritation in the vaginal area that can be a  problem is due to infection. For example, a fishy odor can be caused by bacterial vaginosis. Your OBGYN can perform tests to see what is the underlying problem of your odor.  Even if, you OBGYN gives her a clean bill of health  but yet you still are experiencing  vaginal odor which is very embarrassing. Don’t be alarmed, there are many natural remedies to help treat the odor.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

(brought to you by Top Ten Home remedies)

Due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, apple cider vinegar can be used to fight vaginal odor. In fact, taking a bath with apple cider vinegar is one of the simplest ways to get rid of the bad odor. This will help fight off the toxins and bacteria that cause vaginal odor. It will also help restore the acidic quality of the vaginal flora.

  • Mix two cups of apple cider vinegar in warm bath water. Soak in it for about 20 minutes. Follow this remedy several times a week to get quick results.
  • You can also drink a glass of water mixed with one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

  1. Add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater.
  2. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes.
  3. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

3. Yogurt

Another good ingredient that can be used to treat vaginal odor is yogurt. Yogurt is rich in lactobacillus bacteria, which help fight candida infection (one of the most common causes of vaginal odor) and restore the normal vaginal pH level. Once the pH level is balanced, the vaginal odor will be gone.

  • Eat two cups of unsweetened, plain yogurt daily. You can also take probiotic supplements.
  • Another option is to soak a all natural tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your body. Leave it in for a few hours, and rinse the area thoroughly after removing the tampon.
  • Another option is to freeze yogurt in a long ice cube where you can insert it in your vagina and allow it to melt.

4. White Vinegar

White vinegar has the power to neutralize odors by breaking down odor proteins. A white vinegar rinse will help eliminate vaginal odor. It will also help restore pH levels in the vagina.

  1. Mix one-half cup each of white vinegar and salt in lukewarm bath water.
  2. Soak in it for a few minutes.
  3. Follow this remedy several times a week.

5. Garlic

Garlic is a natural antibiotic that can be great for dealing with vaginal infections as well as vaginal odor. The antifungal properties present in garlic will help fight a yeast infection and help your body get rid of bad bacteria.

  • Eat garlic in raw or cooked form on a daily basis. You can eat one or two raw garlic cloves on an empty stomach with a glass of warm water. You can also add garlic cloves or its paste to your dishes and salads.
  • Another option is to put a piece of garlic in the vagina for an hour or two. Do this daily or a few times a week until you get rid of the problem.

Additional Tips

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins and harmful bacteria from the body. It will also help ward off a variety of health issues.
  • Avoid refined carbohydrates, caffeine and sugary drinks; sugar stimulates yeast production.
  • Check for possible signs of infection that could be causing this problem.
  • Maintain proper personal hygiene.
  • Wear 100 percent cotton panties that allow air circulation and help keep the vulva ventilated, thus avoiding excessive perspiration.
  • Change pads, tampons, and panty-liners frequently.
  • Avoid using scented products down there as they may contribute to unbalanced vaginal pH.
  • If the problem mostly occurs after intercourse then simply wash the vagina with mild soap and water after sex.
  • Practice safe sex.
  • At times, women simply do not like the normal vaginal odor caused by vaginal secretions. However, there is nothing bad about it, you just need to respect your body and embrace your natural odor.

Weird things women do their Vagina

Written by ECOSALON

1. You can steam it
Yep, vaginal steaming is a thing. You apparently pick out herbs – you know, like you do for asparagus – that help to detox and heal any vaginal imbalances. But how exactly do you know if you’re walking around with an imbalanced vagina?

2. You can knit with it
This is not a drill.

3. You can keep it cool
There’s underwear that works as central air for your vag to keep it from overheating – the technology apparently reduces your down-there temperature by three degrees. Not sure, but your boyfriend’s peen might have to wear a light jacket the next time you fool around.

4. You can buy it a hat
The Vaj-J Visor is a little hat that protects your vagina while shaving, waxing or tanning. It comes in a wide variety of colors – because if your visor clashed with your razor, that would be weird.

5. You can dye it
This might be taking the whole carpet-and-drapes thing with a Fun Betty kit.

6. You can whiten it
According to women who clearly spend too much time studying their vaginas, it’s better for your vagina to be as pale as a creepy china doll: Vaginal whitening is all the rage in places like Thailand and India, where you essentially bleach your lady bits and make them look so pale they practically glow in the dark.

7. You can keep it minty fresh
I wish I was joking, but unfortunately vaginal mints do exist (otherwise known as a yeast infection waiting to happen).

8. You can give it injections
Fillers aren’t just for your face anymore: Women are injecting collagen into their cooch to inflate their g-spot, making it super sensitive to sexual stimulation. You know what else inflates your g-spot? A guy who knows what he’s doing.

9. You can give it a makeover
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation runs for between $4,000 and $20,000 and aims to make a woman’s vagina tighter than a vice-grip – you know, to make up for years of promiscuity and super-size vibrators. There’s also a more budget friendly option: “Wanna Be Tight” Vaginal Shrink Gel. I wanna be drunk.

10. You can decorate it
Like the college guy hanging out at a high school party, vajazzling is still around – especially useful if your guy is distracted by shiny things.

11. You can remodel it
If you’re looking for a new pair of drapes, a labiaplasty will give your otherwise floppy, uneven vaginal opening a more proportioned, feminine look… for $5,000 or more.

12. You can give it a facial
Vajacials (vagina facials) are a 50-minute beauty “essential” where your nether regions are plucked, cleansed, moisturized and covered in a fruit-flavored mask. Because in order to have good sex, you have to smell like a scented candle.

13. If you think Your Vagina is Too Loose
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a trademarked phrase that refers to a practice developed and popularized by Dr. David Matlock, who’s made several appearances on the E! channel’s plastic surgery reality show, Dr.90210. Matlock and other doctors who carry out LVR claim that the $4,000 to $20,000 procedure makes women’s vaginas tighter, thus increasing sexual pleasure.

But many doctors disagree. The American Urogynocology Society won’t endorse it. And the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists cautioned in a 2007 statement that women seeking “designer vaginas” should be “informed about the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia, adhesions, and scarring.” Sexy!

14. If you think  Your Vagina is Ugly
Labiaplasty drastically reduces the labia, the protruding lips that surround the opening of the vagina. Why would you want to do this? Because your labia are  “unequal,” “elongated,” “large,” “irregular,” “floppy,” and “unfeminine.” These are just some of the unflattering adjectives bandied about on the Web sites of surgeons who offer this procedure. Luckily, with the use of lasers and scalpels, your vagina can be made “prettier,” “better proportioned,” “youthful,” and achieve “the true Playboy aesthetic look.” How much will it cost you to make your labia proportional and feminine? About $5,000 or more.
