Have you noticed that the number one topic of conversations these days is Health and Wellness.
I don’t know about you but in my family we have several that suffer from food allergies as well as with eczema.
So my husband and I have become increasingly more contentious about what we are bringing into our home.
I have seen and heard of the Honest Co. and I must admit I was a bit hesitant to try it.
Mainly because it was a mail order company. If your anything like me, I like to stand in the middle of the isles and open up the bottles so I can smell what it is I am about to purchase. I know I can’t be alone in this, right??
So when I had the opportunity to try the Honest Household Cleaning items, I jumped at the opportunity.
Did you know that,
Most household cleaners contain toxic chemicals. Ammonia, Formaldehyde, Phthalates, Benzalkonium Chlorid, and 2-butoxyethanol, are among them. Oven cleaners are one of the most toxic products people use. They contain lye and ammonia.
And in that Yellow can we have all used and come to love as our wood dusting and cleaning spray, it contains Butane, Propane, Isobutane, Silicones. I’m not sure if you really want to clean with gases?
I know, I know…
A Very well known Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner—Contains high concentrations of a substance that the United Nations says is “suspected of damaging the unborn child.”
With just a little bit of research you will find that these Chemicals have a wide range of effects not only on the environment but the body as well.
The fact is…
We are so fortunate to live in a time when all the information is just a click away. We can research and find all there is too know about the products we are choosing too use.
Take Room Deodorizer for instance, The toxic chemical found in room deodorizers is found in the blood of 95% of children and adults.
This is something I would have never known myself had I not taken the time to educate myself.
So I guess the question for some of you would be,
I know I had too!!
I want to be smart about what I am bringing into my home. Not just for me but for my Children.
I love how The Honest Company was founded by a mom and a dad who, like many modern parents, were increasingly worried about products made with questionable chemical ingredients. But the alternatives they found were often expensive, inaccessible, bland, or ineffective. In response to this clear need for something better, they created The Honest Company to ensure that parents (or anyone for that matter!) could easily find natural and non-toxic eco-friendly products that are beautiful, effective, and affordable.
I want to be able to clean worry free!
And with a lot of LITTLE hands in our home, I want to know that they are not coming into constant contact with dangerous chemicals like the ones stated above.
With a family of 8 our bathrooms get a lot of visitors throughout the day. Our children have the responsibility of keeping their bathrooms clean so it’s all the more important as to what cleaners we are allowing them to use. And it’s just as important as too how effective these products are.
So the kids were excited to give the Honest Multi-Surface Cleaner a try. I must admit I thought it was going to be like any other cleaner, but was pleasantly surprised. It not only cleaned well but a little went a long way. As I was taking the pictures our youngest decided he needed to brush his teeth AGAIN!!! And his toothbrush fell into the sink right after his sister had cleaned it. It was so nice to know that the sink was just cleaned with non-toxic cleaner.
Our kitchen like many other homes, is the most used room in our house. Meals are always being made or finished, coloring and crafting are constantly being done at the counter and snacks our often being eaten in passing throughout the day.
The center island is probably the one surface in the house that we all have constant contact with. Our little one’s are constantly dropping their food and picking it right up off the counter and eating it. So what I am choosing too clean the Island with is so very important to my husband and I.
We were happy to see how we could use the same Multi-Surface cleaner that was used in the bathroom too clean our kitchen counters with also.
I know you probably won’t believe this but this little girl LOVES too do dishes. She is constantly asking me if she can wash the dishes.
So she was more than excited to try out her new Honest dish soap.
She not only loved the pretty packaging she also LOVED using it.
But for me that wasn’t enough!!
I had to try it out myself. And I must say I was quite surprised at how well it cleaned the dishes with very little soap. I am one of those that tends to use MORE soap than needed, and if I was going to give this a SERIOUS try I went for LESS.. I mean, come on!! I have to REALLY see if this stuff works, RIGHT??
What is it about the Dishwasher, that get’s kids excited!!
Or is that just my kids..??
I haven’t had much luck with Eco-Friendly dishwasher gels in the past. They typically leave a cloudy residue of some sort. We actually had a dishwasher ruined by one. It turned the outside of the vent area a Chalky White and I was unable to restore it back to normal.
I am RELIEVED and EXCITED too say, that the Honest Dishwasher Gel performed amazingly and left absolutely no residue at all.
We are so impressed with the Honest Cleaning supplies that we can’t wait to try out some of their other products,
