We created the Health Hacks on a Budget video course series to make it as easy as possible for everyone to save time and money while living a healthy life. In this series, we share simple recipes, easy tips, and educational information to help you and your family thrive.
For generations, we've been conditioned to depend on harsh substances to clean house. As much as we've trusted bleach to disinfect and whiten just about everything, it actually can be poisonous when ingested or inhaled. As mentioned in our previous video, many commercial cleaning products contain nasty chemicals and even known carcinogens, compounds that cause cancer. To us, that sounds like the absolute opposite of clean!
No need to worry—in this video, Sara Snow shares everything you need for truly clean and safe housekeeping. From good old-fashioned soap and water and the herb that can keep bugs out of your pantry, to the only versatile (and cheap) all-purpose cleaner and disinfectant you need. And just about all of these products are available at Thrive Market for 25 to 50 percent less than supermarket prices. Here's your shopping list:
- Liquid castile soap
- Bay leaves
- Lemon oil
- Olive oil
- Distilled white vinegar
- Baking soda
- Essential oils (for yummy scents!)
