A Clean and Chemical Free Home
When I started this journey with Authentic Skin Remedies, I thought a lot about what “clean” means for our skin and for beauty products. As the body’s largest organ, our skin is really our shelter, and keeping it clean means more than washing up and making it look good – it means keeping it as free of damaging chemicals as possible.
As I researched that idea of clean, it clicked on another level too. What about the homes that shelter us and the ways we keep them clean? Just reading the labels of household cleaning products, from toilet bowl cleaners, dishwashing detergents, window and glass cleaner, you name it – the list of toxins like isopropanol, phosphates, something called 5-dimethyldantoin popped up.
What good is this brand of clean if it comes with corrosive, dangerous chemicals? According to a chart published by the Cleveland Clinic, common household cleaners can cause severe problems for our nervous and circulatory systems, corrode and burn our skin, and cause cancer, just to name a few of the risks we take using those products. It might seem daunting at first to change the way we clean our homes. But I’ve found some simple and cheap solutions that clean my home and keep it smelling fresh!
I’m talking about baking soda, lemons, vinegar, and a spray bottle. That’s it! And you can really clean your whole house. Here are some excellent tips from the myhealthygreenfamily blog that I like to refer to:

Dealing with cleaning has always been a task for me. And, when it comes to the toilet it makes me go mad. Even though I use chemicals(that harm my skin), I don't get good results. I'll try this & see if it works for me. And, if it does, it will be a real help for me.
