When cleaning the floors, all of the harmful chemicals that riddle the ingredient labels of most store bought products are quite shocking! As a mom, I know how important it is to keep the floors clean as my munchkins spend about 75% of their time playing on the floor. Since they were itty bitty and crawling on hands and knees was their mode of transportation, I have been very conscious of what is residing on our floors. I learned early on that anything and everything gets eaten or licked (I know, I’m cringing too). I also learned that scrubbing the floors clean could sometimes be just as dangerous as not cleaning them at all! The trade off is often dirt and grime for nasty hormone altering chemicals. Luckily there is a wealth of homemade all natural cleaning alternatives out there that effectively address the dirt and grime while ensuring that the kids are not absorbing or ingesting anything that could cause harm should they choose to you know, eat or lick… sigh.
