REMOVE TOXINS FROM YOUR HOME

By Suryaprakash Rajendiran

Even small changes can have a big impact on your long-term health.

Remove shoes before entering your home. Most of the dirt in your house is tracked in by your shoes, including harmful substances such as pesticides and lead. Store your shoes in the garage or an entryway cabinet.

Remove dust. Dust your furniture using a microfiber cloth and use a HEPA vacuum cleaner. Mop all floors weekly.
Prevent mold growth. Keep moisture levels to a minimum to stop the growth of mold and mildew. Monitor the areas where mold most commonly grows (bathroom, kitchen and basement).

Purify your water. Filter tap water to eliminate toxins by using a carbon filter (pitcher, faucet-mount or dispenser). Use a shower-head filter to remove chlorine and other potentially harmful chemicals.

Monitor CO levels. Use a certified CO detector to check your home for carbon monoxide leaks in furnaces and other home appliances.

Reduce the usage of plastics. Most plastics contain the toxic compound Bisphenol A, a hormone disruptor. Choose products that are BPA-free especially when it comes to food containers or baby bottles. Do not use plastic containers in the microwave.

Choose personal care products wisely. Many toiletries, cosmetics and other personal care products are loaded with toxins, such as parabens, phthalates and many others. Choose alternatives made with natural ingredients.

Use safer cleaners. You can replace many commercial cleaning products with safer, greener ones. Baking soda, washing soda, white vinegar, castile soap and essential oils are non-toxic, efficient cleaners.
Refresh the air. Indoor air is 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Avoid synthetic air fresheners and refresh the air in your home by opening the windows. Air conditioning ducts should be cleaned regularly, with non-toxic products. Indoor plants also help keep the air clean.
