Thieves Household Cleaner & Why You Need It
YOU GUYS! I want to let you in on a little known secret…According to EPA, the air inside of our homes are 2-5 (and in some cases up to 100) times MORE polluted than the air outside! In fact, a study published in the Environmental Health Sciences identified 586 chemicals inside their test homes! Um, excuse me? Say what???
There are MANY factors that play into this, but let me just introduce you to a few that are on the list:
- Cleaning products
- Air fresheners
- Beauty and personal care products
These are things people use on a daily basis and they are some of the main contributors to polluting your precious air. 😱😱
A few reasons why you should care:
First off, your health DUH! Poor indoor air quality could cause or worsen
- respiratory problems, asthma, etc
- memory loss, fatigue, and depression
- And more!!!
Children and pets are breathing in more toxics and you as they are lower to the ground where the air is less likely to be circulating and allowing chemicals to drop to the ground (if they’re not already there from your flooring) Not to mention in most cases children breath in more air than adults… I could go on and on but I will let you research more if you’re truly interested…do
Let’s talk about some ways to reduce the toxins in our home!
- Get some houseplants, they are known for improving the air by filtering out the chemicals including formaldehyde.
remove shoes inside
- Leave your shoes at the door to prevent tracking unknown toxins inside + clean floor regularly (I give the girls scrubs and buckets of water and they LOVE cleaning the floor….dont worry I mop too!)
ditch & switch
- Get rid of your toxic cleaning products, you know all the ones that cause you to put the child lock on the cabinet door?? And replace them with safer alternatives such as; baking soda, vinegar, and of course my absolute favorite, THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER!

What I love about this cleaner?? First off it comes extremely concentrated, only ONE capful in your bottle of cleaner and the rest is water (I use 2 capfuls in my bathroom spray…got some dirty babies).
