Toxic Love: Alternatives to the “Clean Scent”

SuzanneToxicDo you have a toxic relationship?  A toxic relationship between you and your cleaning products?  I have met many people that are interested in Norwex products but are held back by the fact that they don’t leave a scent behind.  What is your favorite scent?  Lemon, pine, lavender, … bleach??

You’re going to get a Real Clean with Norwex, but I understand if you want to have a scent left behind.  Let’s talk about some options.

I wish I could tell you to just use air fresheners, but they are toxic too. According to the EPA, the four main ingredients of air fresheners are formaldehyde, petroleum distillates, p- dichlorobenzene, and aerosol propellants.Formaldehyde is know to be a VOC (Volitile Organic Compound), meaning that at normal room temperature they vaporize in to a gas (cdc.gov). Breathing formaldehyde? Yuck! They also contain “phthalates—hazardous chemicals known to cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects, and reproductive problems” (nrdc.org).  All those consequences just for a quick fix?  Not cool!  Thankfully, there are ways to naturally scent your home without chemicals. You just have to think outside the cleaning aisle.

Candles: Make sure you use 100% beeswax or vegetable wax candles with cotton wicks, because there are many toxins in other synthetic candles (check it out here). Many of these candles are infused with essential oils or you can just enjoy the light honey scent of beeswax. Continue reading

Five Tips to Avoid the Pinch of Being Green All Year

Happy St Patricks Day from NorwexI can still remember painstakingly picking out my outfit the night before March 17th when I was in elementary school.  I always wanted to wear a visible amount of green in the perfect shade.  After all, I didn’t want to be pinched because someone claimed that I was only wearing teal.  I kept the practice up through high school and possibly even through college.  As I have grown older, I definitely have become less intentional about wearing green on St Patrick’s Day.  Some days I am lucky to remember what day of the week it is, much less the date on the calendar.

The same can be true about saving the planet.  While there are a few exceptions, for the most part people desire to make the world a better place.  At first, we may painstakingly plan ways to be more environmentally conscious.  Yet quickly our goals can be pushed aside in the midst of trying to just keep up with life.  I hope these tips that follow will make being “green” easier without the accompanying pinch.

1. Make conscious choices.   I know I am guilty of going through life on automatic pilot and relying on my routine.  Just being more aware will help make a difference.  One example is with conserving water.  Turn off the faucet when you are brushing your teeth.  Only fill the sink full of soapy water when you have that many dishes, rather than just washing one or two.  Use a refillable water bottle rather than plastic ones, and then actually drink the water.  Both you and the planet will be healthier on that one.
