For thirty years, I lived what many Americans could consider a “normal” life. When I went to a store, I bought whatever products caught my eye or stayed in my budget. I didn’t read labels, I didn’t think about my health, and I certainly didn’t make purchases based on the environment.
As a clean freak, I used to love buying the latest “new and improved” products that helped with my cleaning. If a spray could get my bathtub sparkling clean and I only had to use it once a month, then I was sold. I thought bleach had a wonderful, clean smell. I liked the perfumed scent of freshly washed laundry.
Then I discovered how harmful cleaning products are. Manufacturers are not required by law to list all the ingredients in their cleaning products. And most of the ingredients haven't been tested for safety. In fact, m ore than 80,000 chemicals have been manufactured and sold since World War II, yet less than twenty percent have been tested for toxicity.
Once I discovered I was pregnant with my first child, my life rapidly morphed into a healthy, environmentally friendly one. I switched to green cleaners, then I started making my own cleaning products out of common ingredients like vinegar and baking soda.
