They really do.
But not bad enough to totally ditch everything I own.
I have some favorites, like my cosmetics. Mostly because I paid a fortune for them while I was selling cosemetics and would feel totally guilty just throwing them away.
Really though, what’s in all those tubes and bottles? TOXINS!
A few months ago I cleaned the bathroom. Not like wash the sinks & scrub the toilets kind of clean (that only happens when my mother comes over & does it for me). I just quickly (HA! okay, it was like 2 hours) went through the cupboards and drawers and took out any lotions, body washes, sprays, etc that I didn’t use or just wasn’t interested in using.
The result was fairly clean shelves, and A FULL garbage bag!
So today I decided to clean the bathroom again, this time just washing the mirror & counter top. While I was in there I thought to myself, what would happen if I were to take out every product that wasn’t good for me/my family?
I thought about it for a few minutes and realized my shelves would be empty and I would probably look horrible & stink.
But this is something I want to keep in mind, especially when buying new products.
Oh, we also ditched the bathroom cleaners A LONG time ago, because they made me physically sick! I found that vinegar and water in a spray bottle works just as good. And a baking soda/water paste is sufficient for scrubbing (Thanks Jessa for this tip!)
Have you made any big moves in the bathroom for the sake of protecting your family?
