The Ultimate Guide to DIY Natural Cleaning Products (Infographic)
Can someone please tell me why we clean our homes, ourselves and our clothing with dangerous chemicals? Okay, I know the answer – cleaver marketing campaigns, low prices, connivence, and a turned head to what the ingredient items actually are.

We wash our cloths in things like Quaternium-15 (Releases formaldehyde, a known carcinogen that causes rashes and skin inflammation), Ethyl acetate (a fabric softener and known Neurotoxin). Even the term “fragrance” may refer to a combination of several hundred hazardous laundry chemicals.
Luckily, there is another way. Almost all household cleaning products have an all natural, organic, counterpart. Here is a fantastic infographic showing you some healthier options to those dangerous bottles that live under your sink.
