Creating a Toxin-Free Home

We are surrounded by various substances these days that can be harmful to our health. Many of these toxins can be found right in our homes. Creating a toxin free home takes a little know how and effort.


Natural cleaning tools to help you in creating a toxin free home.

Here’s how:

Switch to Natural Cleaning Products

Many cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to our health. Consider switching to natural cleaning products, which are often just as effective and are safer for both you and the environment. 

I like Mrs. Meyer’s, Ecco and Dr. Bonner’s.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air due to dust, mold, and chemicals from household products. Improve your home’s air quality by regularly opening windows to let fresh air in, using air purifiers, and keeping houseplants that can naturally purify the air.

Invest in high quality vacuum bags and air filters.

Consider a portable air purifier or system.

Use Non-Toxic Cookware

Some cookware can leach harmful substances into your food. Opt for non-toxic alternatives like stainless steel, cast iron, or glass.

Choose Organic Bedding

Conventional bedding can contain a host of chemicals and synthetic materials. Organic bedding is made from natural materials and is free from harmful chemicals, offering a safer sleep environment.

Be Mindful of Home Renovations

Home renovation projects can stir up dust and release harmful substances like lead and asbestos, especially in older homes. If you’re planning a renovation, consider hiring professionals who can safely handle these risks.

Consider a one-hour strategy session with me before beginning renovations. 

Reduce Electronic Pollution

Electronic devices can emit electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that some studies suggest may have health effects. While the research is not definitive, it’s a good idea to limit your exposure where possible. Consider creating an electronics-free zone in your home, especially in bedrooms.

Also, unplug devices when they’re not in use and avoid using electronic devices while they’re charging.

By being mindful of electronic pollution, you can further contribute to creating a toxin-free environment in your home. Remember, every step, no matter how small, helps in creating a healthier living space.

Be Conscious of Your Food Storage

Plastic containers and non-stick cookware can leach chemicals into our food, especially when heated or placed in the microwave. You can actually smell the toxins in old plastic containers.

Consider using glass or stainless-steel containers for food storage and avoid microwaving food in plastic containers. Also, try to reduce the use of canned foods, as many cans are lined with a resin that contains bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical linked to various health problems.

By incorporating these additional steps into your routine, you can further reduce the presence of toxins in your home and create a healthier environment for you and your family.

Remember, every change, no matter how small, contributes to a healthier, toxin-free home.


By making small changes step by step, we can significantly reduce our exposure to harmful substances and create a healthier living environment for ourselves and our loved ones.

Remember, every little bit helps when it comes to creating a healthier, toxin-free home. Start small, and before you know it, you’ll have made a big difference in the health and wellness of your household.
