5 quick fixes to remove toxins from your home

Chemical sources in the home can come from a variety of places and in the form of a variety of unpronounceable ingredients. Here are some quick-start ways to cut ‘em out in the pursuit of a clean, sustainable, eco-household.

1. Avoid Teflon cookware and plastic Tupperware. Teflon is a safe and stable compound – but recent research has revealed that at temperatures above 500°F, Teflon coatings on nonstick cookware start to break down, releasing toxic chemicals into the air. Same deal with plastic Tupperware – heating it in the microwave may leach chemicals into your food. Opt for glass containers instead!

2. Stay away from most air fresheners. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), most store-bought air fresheners are made of chemicals that can affect respiratory function.

3. Consider investing in an air purifier! Portable air filters have recently grown in popularity for helping to remove contaminants from the air in your home. If you need help choosing one, read our guide here.

4. Adopt house plants. Certain easy plants can help purify the air in you home! Click here to see some of our favorites.

5. Opt for non-toxic cleaning supplies. Little fun fact: there are over 84,000 chemicals used in different cleaning supplies across the US #wtf!!

Make the switch – some of our unsponsored faves include Branch Basics for household cleaning and Biokleen for laundry detergent.

Prefer to make it yourself? Here’s a quick DIY all-purpose cleaner that keeps it clean, in every way:

Grab an empty jar or spray bottle. Add 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol, 6 drops of essential oil (we like citrusy vibes like lemon or orange peel essential oils). Top it off with 1 squirt Dr. Bronners Castile soap or sal suds, and shake it up.
