In honor of Earth Day being this past Sunday, I wanted to talk to ya'll today about cleaning up your cleaning routine. I'm in this cleaning group on Facebook with thousand and thousands of fierce members who are OBSESSED with cleaning. I'm not quite on that level of cleaning, but I like to be in the group in case I need to seek expert advice. Recently, I'm a little concerned for some of these folks! Did you know that traditional cleaning products have the same damaging impact on women's lungs as a smoking 20 cigarettes a day?! Whoa!
I have always been pretty sensitive to harsh household cleaners. I can't stand the smell of ammonia or chlorine. I typically feel nauseous or light-headed after using them. That can't be healthy. So, I began cleaning with more natural, eco-friendly products. I thought, if they are better for the earth, they must be better for me! But, in my suburban southern town, it wasn't always easy to find these products and they were typically MUCH more expensive. On a strict budget, that didn't always work. Imagine my delight and relief when I discovered Grove Collaborative.
They were the perfect solution. They have incredible standards for their products. They created the “Dirty Ingredient List”. None of their products contain the following ingredients, which is better for your home and YOU!

And, it's better for my budget. Their prices are some of the lowest I've seen. Plus, when you're a VIP member you get free shipping AND price matching. This makes my budget sooo happy. Plus, as a VIP, they send me FREE stuff to try. They sent me some amazing hardwood floor cleaner by Method that my husband is obsessed with.
I am SO passionate about this and I want your lungs (and your littles' lungs) to be able to breathe easier. So, when you sign up for Grove Collaborative through this link, you get to try out their VIP program and you'll get a FREE four piece cleaning set. The set includes three Mrs. Meyers products (a countertop spray, hand soap, and dish soap). These products are what got me started with cleaner cleaning and I think they will inspire you, too! They smell absolutely HEAVENLY. I am obsessed with the basil scent, but you can't go wrong with any of them.
