Do you decorate your home with chemicals? Many Australians are unaware of just how many toxic chemicals can be found in their favourite household items. While retailers and commercials may constantly launch new household “essentials”, today we will explore some of the harmful toxic products we use every day and see if there are any natural alternatives.
Cleaning Products are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to household chemicals. Products including bleach, laundry detergents and oven cleaners all contain potential toxic chemicals.
Do you know what is actually in your air freshener? While many Australians spray chemical based air fresheners into their family homes every day, few people truly know what is actually behind the false smell they experience. Today we will explore what actually goes into these branded aerosols and examine some of the strange sounding chemicals that many people unfortunately fail to understand.
‘But my air freshener’s fragrance smells nice!’ This maybe you first thought when you consider your favourite air freshener brand, but you should know that this is actually a smart ‘trick’.
Take a second and think about the chemicals your body is exposed to every day? A century ago we had mostly chemical free homes. Imagine a life without chemical based air fresheners and fewer chemical cleaning products being pumped into our living environments. We also had a lot less body fat compared to today’s average statistics, now with 55% of all Australian women overweight. So a reasonable question to be asked is there a connection between over exposure to these substances. Are modern day chemicals be making us fat?
Tired of chemicals dominating your home? After decades of over exposure to chemical based products, Australian consumers are now beginning to question the impact of such wares on our personal wellbeing. What if we could use chemical free solutions instead? Is it possible to use a natural air freshener as effectively as a chemical based air spray?
A major shift in our conscience is taking place across Australia, with many beginning to question just why our lives are invaded with chemical based products. Just what are we actually spraying into our environment in order to create that artificial smell?
Sniff up. Now be honest, does your home smell of your pet? We love our cherished companions, they are part of our family. But despite the best of efforts to keep surfaces clean, spraying air chemicals and opening windows it can still feel difficult to completely remove pet odours from our homes.
In Winter, the challenge feels even greater with that latter option ruled out, trapping lingering odours for longer. The smelliest of our household pets are also Australia’s most popular, with dogs and cats among the top of the pong charts. But what causes this pet odour in the first place?
