While I was visiting my mother a month ago, as we were enjoying a beautiful breakfast, I turned my head for a split second and saw Wallace getting under her sink. Just like that, boom, he had Ajax on his little hand. Okay, so I don't have Ajax under my sink but I definitely have some chemicals that are toxic and should not be in the house. I am constantly trying to make small improvements to live a healthier life. This includes my diet, exercise, environmentally conscious products and especially my home environment. So while I am in the process of changing out the few toxic cleaning supplies that are left, something that I can do right now is clean under the sink and get the bad products out of the house.
I have moved everything potentially dangerous to the laundry room, which will probably drive my husband crazy but now, I don't have to worry about harsh chemicals being in the same room where I prepare our food. Why do we all keep our cleaning supplies under the sink anyway? I asked two friends yesterday and it is the universal place to house these items. We work so hard to get quality ingredients for our meals, shop at farmer's markets, make tonics, drink juices, and bottled water. So why have toxic materials in our kitchen in close proximity to our food? I became way more aware of the possible risks involved with all of the chemicals after watching The Human Experiment. If you have not seen this movie, see it and I guarantee you will be inspired to clean out under your sink and change out the products you use.
I confess that I am a little attached to bleach. We had our sewage line back up a year ago and it was necessary. If any of you have experienced this, you know what I am talking about. You feel like bleaching your soul it is so foul. Anyway, I am working on getting all of the toxins out of my life, bleach will probably be the last to go. Slowly, but surely. Also, please notice in the photos below, we are hoarding hammers over here. If you need one, get in contact. Good luck cleaning out under your sinks!
