Making your own cleaning products is great way to ensure they are chemical free and safe for your family. Since having my daughter I am very conscious of the amount of toxins she is exposed too, and whilst we cannot control everything why not control the areas that we can! Considering the amount of items I see her put in her mouth daily, I decided the best and safest (and cheapest!) thing for my family was to make my own cleaning products, and you can too!
Many household cleaners contain toxic chemicals. These chemicals have been shown to increase the chances of respiratory difficulties, neurological problems, asthma attacks, dizziness, migraine headaches.
Children are often more vulnerable to chemical exposure during developmental stages, and certain chemicals may interfere with the development of their neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Main routes of exposure: eating, drinking, breathing, and touching.
Younger children have higher respiratory rates than adults, therefore they absorb more air contaminants per unit of weight, meaning they experience a higher inhaled dose.
