A Fresh Start to using Non-toxic Products for the Family

Happy New Year! How are those resolutions going? One of my goals this year was to find better non-toxic household products. I recently downloaded the Think Dirty App to scan all my products. It’s a great app that tells me how the products I’m using rate on their “Think Dirty” scale. I’ve been scanning everything in my house including shampoo, cleaners, lip balm, bar soap, lotions…everything. Once I scan a product, the app gives a rating of 1-10, 10 being most toxic. I was so surprised to find that a lot of products that I thought were great still have a lot of toxic chemicals in them. I like to stay around 3 or under on the Think Dirty ranking.

Here are a few of my favorite brands and products:

Seventh Generation hand soap in Citrus and natural all-purpose cleaner

Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo, Conditioner and Detangler

California Baby Body Wash and Shampoo and Calendula Body Cream for Kids
