Day #7 – Clean Your Cupboards

Questions? Discuss This Challenge In The Forums!

Hello again!

Today is Day #7 my friends I hope you’re enjoying this health challenge!

It’s really important to make sure that all the cleaning products you have in your home aren’t harming your health.

It’s counterproductive to make a bunch of great decisions when it comes to the food you eat, but expose you and your family to toxic chemicals in your cleaning supplies.

Here are 8 toxic chemicals that are most prevalent in our cleaning products.

1. Phthalates
2. Perchloroethylene or “PERC”
3. Triclosan
4. Quarternary Ammonium Compounds, or “QUATS”
5. 2-Butoxyethanol
6. Ammonia
7. Chlorine
8. Sodium Hydroxide

These chemicals cause so much stress and inflammation to your body and really break us down at the cellular level.

We need to replace them with healthier alternatives. We like a brand called Force of Nature which you can search Google for. There are many brands out there that are making much healthier versions of toxic cleaning products we’ve grown up with.

Instructions: Go through your cupboards and closets to find any toxic cleaning supplies. Most of the popular brands are incredibly toxic and some can have devastating effects on your body over time. Throw away all toxic cleaning products. Use hashtag #ExtremeHealthChallenge.
