Healthy homes

Hi Everyone
When you are building you need to know what you are building with
lots of new products are full of chemicals and these can affect your health
Now you do have a choice and can get lots of things that are for instance low in formaldehyde
some plys are now super Eo that have minimal amounts of the toxic glues used
Just ask and be aware what you are putting in your building
By now everyone should be also using natural products to clean your house. Vinegar and bicarb soda are the basis for nearly all cleaners used naturally and are also very good at keeping bugs at bay. They break down more easily in our environment and are less toxic to use than chemical cleaners and sprays, and much more friendly on your pocket
