GUEST POST: Healthy Home, Happy Family
by Cyndi Prince
As a parent, I truly value health and wellness and know that when my family is healthy, they are happier. Like many moms, I’m careful not to expose my family to household cleaners that may contain toxic chemicals that can cause a serious illness. All cleaning products have natural alternatives that provide healthier options for our home environment.
When I first became pregnant, I learned that children are more susceptible toxic chemicals than adults. I knew I wanted to create a healthy home for my child. I started researching, and was determined to protect my family’s health and choose safer non-toxic products for our home.
My quest for creating a healthier home began in the laundry room. Since we would be doing A LOT more laundry with a new baby, coupled with the fact that we chose to cloth diaper, I knew I needed to start there. The detergent I used for years was the first to go and was replaced with a soap nuts detergent that was natural and organic.
Next, I looked at the clothes dryer and began researching dryer sheets. I was shocked to learn about the harmful chemicals they contained and the negative impact they have on our clothes and our dryer.
Right then and there, I stopped using dryer sheets.
After searching for a natural alternative that would help soften our laundry and discovered wool dryer balls. It felt like I was discovering the best kept laundry secret! Wool dryer balls are made with only wool – which is all natural, sustainable, biodegradable and durable PLUS they would soften our clothes and reduce our dry time. I created LooHoo Wool Dryer Balls and I have helped thousands of homes protect their family’s health by providing a natural alternative to dryer sheets. If creating a healthier home is your top priority, then consider adding LooHoos to your laundry routine today.
