DAY 3

THE BLOOMIST X DR. ROB BROWN HOME DETOX

Good morning!
​And welcome to Day 3 of our home detox.

Too often, we’ll prioritize a “spotless” home over a healthy one.

I frequently see this in our choice of kitchen cleaners. The chemical-laden “big guns” get the job done fast, cutting through grease, removing mildew, and killing bacteria.

This is quite literally overkill, as these incredibly strong cleansers make no differentiation between harmful bacteria and the helpful bacteria that form our external microbiome. I’ve been heartened to see more and more consumers thinking thoughtfully about what these corporate chemicals are doing to our homes.

One excellent resource for information on household cleansers is the Environmental Working Group website, which ranks over 2,000 of them. Look for the products you use daily and see if you’re happy with the grade they’ve received. If not, consider an alternative — or do as I recommend and prepare a homemade alternative.

For a general household cleaner, dilute white vinegar in water in a two-to-one ratio (mostly vinegar); add a few drops of lemon juice to the mixture. White vinegar and lemon juice cut grease, reduce mildew, and remove waxy build-up. Coarse salt can be used as an abrasive to clean hard surfaces. You can also add essential oil here for a lovely fragrance.

Will a DIY cleanser get your countertops as sparkling as a heavy-duty commercial cleaner? Maybe not. But, your countertops will be clean and safe to eat from — a much healthier alternative.

Wishing you a healthy, joyful day,

Dr. Rob & Bloomist
