Things we need to know
With increases in cancers, allergies, asthma and eczema, especially in children, we need to eliminate as many nauseous chemicals from our home environment as we can. Some of the toxins we bring into our homes can be found in drain openers, air fresheners,
fabric softeners, dryer sheets
, dish & laundry detergents, oven, carpet & bathroom cleaners, metal polishes.
