Did you know your home’s indoor environment is 2X more toxic than outside?
80% of cancers are environmental including exposure to carcinogenic chemicals found in cleaning products.
As a society, we are spending even more time indoors than ever (especially as cooler weather approaches), so we need to be aware of the chemicals we are exposing our families to in our own homes.
Natural cleaning products have come a long way from the overpowering smells and inadequate cleaning powers that they were years ago. Now you can get all of the powerful cleaning results of conventional cleaning products without nasty, dangerous chemicals. One brand I trust for natural, plant-derived cleaning products is ECOS™.

I’m not sure what I like most about ECOS All Purpose Cleaner Orange Plus, how well it cleans my house naturally or the amazing smell of citrus oranges after using it! I use this bottle throughout the house to clean surfaces without nasty chemicals. It leaves my granite counter-tops sparkly and clean without a chemical residue.
I can even clean my sealed stone backspalsh and stainless steel appliances in my kitchen with it. Beyond the kitchen, it works great on basically any surface in any room including the porcelain and chrome in bathrooms!
Even clean homes have have lingering odors, especially if you have pets and children. I’ve started using the ECOS EcoBreeze Fabric Refresher for quick touch ups throughout the week. It leaves my home smelling very fresh and clean with a mild lavender mint scent. It uses plant-derived, aromatic power to infuse fabrics like blankets, sheets, clothing, upholstered furniture, carpets, car seats and pet beds. I especially like spraying it on our dog’s bed in between cleanings – how do dogs get so stinky in between washes?! Eco Breeze leaves my home – and the dog’s bed with a fresh clean scent as it helps neutralize and remove unpleasant odors.
I rarely use anything that isn’t fragrance-free because I dislike the heavy scents left on clothes and bedding. Beyond the scent factor, using a natural detergent only makes sense. Did you know that conventional detergents include ingredients like formaldehyde, phosphates, dioxane, and other harmful chemicals?! Yikes! I’ve been using ECOS natural laundry products and have been so pleased with the results.
I’ve been using ECOS Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent, Free & Clear for all of our laundry. It cleans colors and whites great. My laundry is clean and soft too since it has built-in fabric softener. I’ve used it on all of our clothing, bedding, and even rugs. It powers through dirt, stains, and sweat without all of the scary chemicals.
Even if I didn’t put a lot of concern for having a natural laundry cleaner for myself, I’ve always looked for a free and clear product for my babies. The Baby ECOS Laundry Detergent, Free & Clear: also uses plant-derived, natural cleaning agents to fight even the nastiest of baby’s messes – and they certainly can create massive messes, can’t they?! I like that this detergent protects babies’ delicate skin against harsh chemicals too.
For tough stains – like grass stains, sweat, and tomato sauce, I make sure I spot-treat with ECOS OxoBrite Multi-Purpose Stain Remover. Plus, I add a scoop to every load of laundry for an extra cleaning boost to fight stains that I don’t see before tossing clothing in the washer! OxoBrite is my favorite of these natural products because it works hard on stains yet gentle on fabrics so that I can use it with every load of laundry – fighting stains and protecting my investment. Nothing is worse than dried in stains on brand new school clothes! If I don’t catch them, OxoBrite does.
Switching to natural cleaning products is one easy way that we can improve the air quality in our homes and reduce the risk of cancer. You can purche ECOS products locally at Acme, Mustard Seed, Walmart, Krieger’s, Target, and Sam’s Club. Find your local store here. http://ecos.com/stores/
