CLEANING PRODUCTS, INCLUDING LAUNDRY DETERGENT

All chemical cleaning products are very toxic for any organic body. Not only is the application horrendous, but the smell alone is so toxic. Please take this very seriously, it will be negatively impacting you, and your animal’s systems immensely.
The Cellular Impact

With our animals’ sense of smell at 40 times that of humans, these toxic smells do immense damage to their beautiful organic bodies. We know when we encounter a smell we do not like, we have to leave. The animals, however, are stuck in our households, and do not have a lot of places to go to get away if we are liberally using toxic cleaning products.

These TOXIC PRODUCTS change their chemistry in their body primarily affecting the liver, spleen, kidneys and heart, adding to their “toxic load”.  This includes all living creatures in your households, birds too!

Laundry Detergent

Impact on Animals | Absorbed through SKIN and ingested via SMELL

What might be in your detergents, if you are buying directly off the shelf in any mainstream store:

1. Fragrances containing phthalates which have been linked to diabetes, obesity, and hormone disruption (affecting both development and fertility.)

2. Surfactants  known irritant and toxic to aquatic life https://smartklean.wordpress.com/2010/12/03/are-you-and-your-family-exposed-to- toxic-surfactants/

3. Bleach known irritation – burns via smell the inside of the body, and breathing problems https://www.beyondtoxics.org/work/green-home-cleaning-campaign/bleach/

4. 1, 4 Dioxane known carcinogen – very, very, very dangerous to all organic bodies

5. Phosphates and EDA

6. SLS | Sodium Lauren Sulfate  is so bad for us and the environment that it actually has 7+ different names, so it can be harder for the public to identify. Similar to what the corporations are doing with MSG…

7. NPE | Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylate known endocrine disruptor. How does the toxicity impact you and your loved ones?? It is absorbed via all bedding, and clothing when one sweats. It travels into the environment and impacts the planet and her water resources exponentially.

Hand Sanitizer

Impact on Animals | Absorbed through SKIN and ingested via SMELL

This stuff is lethal. It is killing your gut microbiome, and hurting your organs.

It is incredible how FEAR can market such a deadly product with it being made available now all through hospitals, even at bank tellers I see it.  These are harsh chemicals, triclosan used heavily, which literally travel to your heart in 40 seconds.

Please stop using this stuff.  It kills all good, friendly bacteria in your body and increases your toxic load on all your organs.  Good old soap and water will do the trick.  Check all the info out on the web, children and pets will be heavily impacted.

I cannot even imagine the internal damage if pets are licking this off your hands or if you are handling their food once applying this.

If one would like to take this a step further, check the Material Data Safety Sheet for each of the chemical ingredients on the back of the bottle.  Toxic soup.

Cleaning Products

Impact on Animals | Absorbed through SKIN and PAWS, and ingested via SMELL

The words “Organic” and “Green” and “Natural” mean nothing unfortunately.  Please read the ingredient list and look for certifications.

Please use cleaners which are neutral in scent and are made from the earth’s organic compounds. Also, please read the label carefully before buying any product as many corporations are throwing this word “organic” or “green” on packaging which, has nothing to do with the ingredients in the actual product.

I help the animals heal with smell, so even the ones that smell lovely to you may impact your being’s physical body negatively, as every being is different.

Also, it is incredible that pet products, including the terrible food, are sold in the same aisle in the grocery store as the cleaning products. This is a red flag to us all! The whole aisle is toxic and smells toxic, too. None of it should be in your household, much less ingested.   

Cleaning with Essential Oils

Impact on Animals | Absorbed through SKIN and PAWS, and ingested via SMELL

Every essential oil’s scent has a role in healing the body, mind, and spirit, but they still need to be chosen by the being. For example, one day lavender might smell lovely to the reader, and another day terrible. This is because your body does not need this plant’s healing properties on that particular day. The same applies to our animals.

Therefore, do not use essential oils in spaces where your animal cannot escape the smell. You will potentially do damage to their systems, their health.  I do not advocate cleaning with any essential oils as again you can impact the animal’s internal cell structure.

Possibilities

We use the following, for example: Cleaning | Baking soda and vinegar; Windows | Vinegar and water; Toilet bowls | Baking soda with Dr. Bronner; Laundry | Dr. Bronner or Seventh Generation; Dishwasher | Seventh Generation dishwashing liquid; Dishes, by hand | Seventh Generation; Floors | Dr. Bronner, unscented – THIS IS A BIG, BIG DEAL – as our animals are on our floors all the time and whatever you use will be going directly to their organs, their heart; Kitchen counter spray | Seventh Generation

And based on the above, we are not paying huge amounts of money for toxic chemicals, as our product base is very small.

Dishwasher & Mold |  Just in case anyone does not know this – always leave your dishwasher open a little to dry out.  This will prevent mold harvesting in it.  I always see people closing their dishwasher which then becomes a breeding ground for all kinds of things.  Keep it open and let it breathe after every load and especially throughout the night.  Even if it has stuff in it, let the machine breathe.  It will be healthier for your all.
