Household Products

This is a huge subject; I have just scratched the surface here. However, there there are so many things out there that seems to impact our health, I suspect new information will be coming out daily. Each of us needs to keep up with this on a regular basis. Please, though, if you have something I haven’t mentioned here, found it helpful and would like to share, consider leaving it in the comment section for others to use.

This can be so overwhelming. I have just found this site and I wish I knew about it when this blog started. I really like their advice and attitude about changing to less toxic products. You might like to read this before you read what follows. Theirs is a daily column that I get in my inbox, so some of the information may be dated. Nonetheless, it seems like a reasonable, thoughtful, not over the top discussion.
