This week's challenge is to clean just a bit more than you normally do. If you're thinking, hmmm that's never, then maybe just for 10 minutes! Here's why. Cleaning can help remove toxic chemicals from your home. Things like phthalates, flame retardants, and lead all end up in normal house dust just from daily life. But, if you vacuum, and wipe things down with a damp cloth you can trap and remove a bunch of it. And, if you switch up your cleaning supplies to DIY versions or safer, non-toxic versions, you can make your cleaning routine even healthier. Check out our green cleaning checklist if you're lost on where to start.
Well, turns out there might be more to being a healthy weight than just exercising and eating right. Head over to our link in bio to find out more about obesogens, or chemicals that promote fat development, and how to avoid them.
