A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
This year start your spring cleaning from the inside out starting with your cleaning products! When it comes to your family, you can never be too careful. We all love a clean home, but what if the products that we trust to clean our homes contain harmful ingredients? It is actually kind of scary, because your loved ones are coming into contact with as well as breathing in these possibly toxic chemicals.
I got to thinking about what kinds of changes I could make that could help to safeguard my family, and decided to start with my cleaning products.
I discovered Truce, a line of chemical free cleaning products that work just as well, if not better than my regular cleaning products.
Truce cleaning products offers a wide variety of items to cover all your cleaning needs, from all-purpose cleaner, wood cleaner and scouring powder, to get your home sparkly clean without the use of any harmful ingredients. Truce only uses SIMPLE and NATURAL ingredients, like borax, essential oils, baking soda, distilled white vinegar and aloe vera, and since they have nothing to hide, they share every ingredient on their labels.
I was given the chance to put a few of their products to the test:
Truce Natural All Purpose Cleaner -It seems that I am constantly wiping down the counter tops in my kitchen. I cringe at all of the times I would use chemically-laden products in the area that food is prepared!
This All-Purpose Cleaner can wonderfully clean your home and office using only safe, non-toxic ingredients in one simple formula. From your floors to the ceiling, you can use the All-Purpose Cleaner for all your cleaning needs. Wipe away messes on those sticky counter tops, remove spots and streaks from windows or mirrors, and get the grime off your shower walls with this one cleaner that is effective on all non-porous surfaces.
It not only works just as effectively as my previous cleaners, but smells like peppermint! I love it!
Truce Laundry Powder- Our laundry comes in contact with our skin, daily. How frightening to think about all of the possibly harmful chemicals that are in our regular laundry detergent!
Wear the freshest smelling and cleanest clothes without exposing your skin to nasty chemicals. The Laundry Powder from Truce is perfect for those with sensitive skin, allergies, or conditions prone to dermatological irritation. Avoid the crazy chemicals and toxins found in other laundry products; you deserve a safe, simple laundry detergent formula that works. this potent detergent can clean heavily soiled clothes and it works in areas prone to hard water. The natural oxygen bleach works to keep whites bright and colors bold without fading. The Laundry Powder is gentle enough for washing organic fibers and it is biodegradable and earth-friendly.
My clothes come out of the wash much fresher and cleaner with Truce Laundry Powder- than when I used my previous detergent. Plus, a little goes a long way!
Room & Pillow Spray- It seems that I am always using room freshener sprays. That is the scariest of all to me, because with my regular room freshening spray brand, I was actually spraying chemicals into the air that my family breathes! I didn't even think about it! I feel horrible for that.
Luckily, Truce Room and Pillow Sprays are here to help. From stinky trash or a foul microwave to that not-so-fresh bathroom air or a stale closet where you hide that old pair of shoes, Truce can help clean out some of the stench.
These Safe and Simple Room and Pillow Sprays clean and freshen the air around your home, car, and office while leaving a natural and pleasing scent. While most other home air plug-ins, sprays, candles, and car fresheners contain harmful chemicals hiding behind the word “Fragrance” on a list of ingredients, Truce is always transparent on where their fresh scents come from: aromatherapeutic essential oils. Extra ingredients containing harmful chemicals are never added into any Truce products because all our ingredients are simple, effective, and natural.
The Revitalizing Spray is a combination of lavender and lemongrass that is sure to rejuvenate and refresh the air around you. The Energizing Spray is a mixture of citrus and lemongrass that helps vitalize you and give you that extra boost to make it through the day. The Soothing Spray has a calming effect by combining the smell of lavender and citrus.
I still have the need for an air freshener, due to when I burn my cooking, or when someone 'stinks' up the air. Thankfully, I no longer need to worry about poisoning my loved ones! Truce Room and Pillow Spray keeps my home smelling fresh and clean. My favorite is the Soothing Spray. It makes the atmosphere nice and calm, while refreshing the air. I love to spray it on the carpet to freshen any stale odors, too.
So, clean out the cabinets during your spring cleaning and ditch the chemical filled products that can be harmful to your family. www.truceclean.com
