We all need to be using safe cleaners, however not everything on the store shelf is created equally. Many products contain corrosive, toxic chemicals that might “clean” well but they certainly don’t do much to protect the health of your family. These toxic chemicals can leave residues, especially harmful on food surfaces, and contribute to indoor air pollution – or worse.
Choosing safe products is so important but the waters can be hard to navigate at first. Here are some tips to choosing safe products with ease.
Start at the ingredient list. If the product you pick up doesn’t tell you what’s in it –stop . right . there . Send that company a message and do not purchase their product. Transparency is huge when looking for safe products in this day and age. While there may be safe products without a disclosed ingredient list, you have no way of knowing that the product you are about to use is safe. The absence of an ingredient list is a big red flag and it’s not worth the risk.
Though there are more toxins out there, this is a great place to start.

Cleanz was born out of the desire for us to take more control over the only environment we can have control of – our homes.
Simply put, this term describes the amount of toxins in your body that you are unable to get rid of. What is left is called “toxic burden” or “toxic overload”. Too many toxins in your body at once will overload your system, and can lead to increased inflammation and oxidative stress if you don't reduce your exposure.
Inflammation (swelling), which is part of the body’s natural healing system, helps fight injury and infection. But it doesn’t just happen in response to injury and illness. An inflammatory response can also occur when the immune system goes into action without an injury or infection to fight.
