Is your home safe? The quick answer is no. Not if you’re using tons of chemicals to keep your house clean (I know. Ironic, right? You’re using all these cleaning supplies to get rid of the bacteria and maintain a standard of living, only to unknowingly hurt yourself in the process). But how dangerous is your house? We use an immeasurable number of toxins to maintain our body and home on a daily basis, including but not limited to the following:

  • Painkillers (e.g. Ibuprofen)
  • Soap
  • Perfume
  • Lotion
  • Dishwasher detergent
  • Bleach
  • Window/glass cleaner
  • Air freshener
  • Mildew remover
  • Coolant
  • Weed killer
  • Laundry detergent

Even more disconcerting: we absorb the most toxins that are dangerous to our health in our own home, not in the outside world! That’s where this nifty infographic comes in. This infographic helps you uncover the causes of why your home is dangerous to your family, and the natural alternatives you can be using to maintain your home and health, as well as do better for the environment. Everyday items like salt, baking soda, and olive oil can provide a healthy alternative to maintaining the sanitation in your home, as well as offer a cheaper method of maintaining a household.

Now, onto the infographic!
