I have been making better product choices since my kids were born, and I first learned how important it is to monitor all the chemicals that can come into our homes and comes in contact with our families. I wish I could say I had thought of it way before that, but I’m glad I think about it now. There are some incredible sulfate free products that we use in our home, and I can’t wait to share them with you! Change can be gradual, and that’s why this is a 7-step process to a more chemical-free home. When we are using products we feel great about and spending our downtime together, we are all happier.
We love to use our downtime to garden! Clearly. That leads to eating better, because for some reason my kids can detect a speck of black pepper in a giant bowl of macaroni and cheese, but if something grows directly from our garden, all bets are off. They will eat giant carrots and tomatoes, and even giant pumpkins (we had one once) if we grow it ourselves! That’s why it pays to think about all the different ways you can invite positive changes into your home, and how it’s all connected.
1 – Endless laundry? Make the switch to NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS®. NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® delivers a powerful clean without harshness. This new sulfate-free formula infuses your cherished fabrics with essential, proven and effective ingredients – for stain lifting and deep cleaning even on the toughest stains! I started using it within the last month, when we have REALLY needed it. We have a new chicken coop and a flock of 11 chickens. On the weekends, we get them outside to roam in the sun with us, and I have sat on dirt more times than I care to mention!
I love my clean laundry smell, as well as knowing that our numerous stains are being lifted in the wash, without harsh ingredients. It makes me feel great when I’m getting dressed, or getting the kids dressed.
all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® includes their ingredients on the back of the bottle. This ensures that you know what ingredients are going into your family’s laundry. It’s one of the first laundry products to put ingredients out there for consumers to read – to know what the ingredients are AND why are they essentials!
2 – Discover AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner.

3 – Ditch pesticides and focus on prevention. We live in the country and we’re no strangers to lawn pests and ants. We luckily don’t have problems with mice and roaches, but we take steps to prevent these pests, rather than expose our home to many pesticides. Wash your dishes carefully, and don’t leave food out. Keep food packages tightly closed, and seal any cracks that are points of entry into your home. Oh, and pull weeds instead of spraying for them. It’s good exercise!
4 – Filter your tap water. Sometimes it’s hard to know if tap water is better (or worse) than bottled water. What I know we can feel better about is having filtered tap water always available to drink in our house.
5 – Wash your hands. Kids generally make a good practice of this through school and daycare, but sometimes when cold and flu season ends, we tend to let it slide. There are still plenty of germs and chemicals on our hands.
6- Eat organic whenever you can. This also helps to protect the environment. It can be tough to eat organic 100% of the time, so we’re realistic. It helps us to buy in-season produce, go to the local farmer’s markets, or join a CSA, or half-share. We also buy organic when it’s fruit that absorbs more pesticides, rather than fruits like bananas and oranges. And we try to do our own gardening, where possible.
7 – Keep germs out of the house! Take off your shoes before entering your house. Use a door mat to catch dirt at the door. Vacuum your house regularly (with a HEPA-filter if possible) at least twice a week.
