This is a chaotic time for most as we enter into a post-holiday and mid-pandemic season and it’s of the utmost importance that we prioritize our physical and mental well being, which we believe starts in the home. Life is smoother with a clean and healthy home and it benefits not only our physical health, but also our sanity in such uncertain times. If you’ve entered into the new year with resolutions and lists to get your home in order and to make it a healthy safe haven, let us suggest a few things which can make all of the difference in that process that you might not have thought of.  

Get Rid of Household Products Containing Toxic Chemicals 

There are so many reasons to be wary of allowing chemicals into your home whether through cosmetics or cleaning supplies. The health risks range from small things like headaches, irritated eyes and throats, to large things like lung damage and an increased risk of cancer.  Products with toxic chemicals introduce a whole other risk when you have small children or pets in your home as many can become deadly when ingested. Not to mention, being regularly exposed to many of these chemicals can lower your overall health. So when you’re making your declutter list, why not start with getting rid of these harmful products lurking in your cabinets?    

Use Safe & Natural Cleaning Alternatives 

We want to make sure our homes are being regularly and thoroughly cleaned, especially with the risk and germs and infection that is so prevalent right now. However, we don’t want to sacrifice the toxic-free environment we are creating in our homes and there’s really no reason to. We highly recommend Soapnut Republic’s natural cleaning supplies to maintain a non-toxic and environmentally friendly integrity in your daily lifestyle, while still making your home clean and germ free. They use high quality plant and mineral based ingredients to create products that are powerful while at the same time non-toxic, biodegradable, and naturally hypoallergenic.     

Purify Your Air 

While using natural cleaning supplies will improve the air quality in your home, there are still toxins that we cannot control that get into our air. Between motor vehicles, marine vessels and power plants, Hong Kong is no stranger to air pollution. This air pollution creates health risks for everyone but can be especially dangerous for children and the elderly and once again can weaken your overall health. For this reason, we highly recommend investing in a home air filter. To make sure your home is a clean and safe space, it is important to make sure the air you are breathing is free from things that will only make your health worse.

Filter Your Water  

While we are cleaning our homes and clearing them of toxins and pollution to improve the overall health of our household, we cannot overlook the water in our homes. Both the water we drink and the water we clean in can often contain things that are terrible for our bodies to consume and breathe in such as lead, chlorine, cysts, and bacteria. So if your goal is a clean and healthy home, using a drinking water filter and a shower filter is necessary. 

We hope these tips are helpful and that you have a clean and healthy 2021!
