When I hear the word detox I automatically think it means making better choices of the food I’m putting inside my body. However, I’ve been challenged to do a slightly different style of detox…. a 7-Day Detox by reducing the amount of chemicals we use in the home, love this idea!
I try where I can to use natural products, but there are times where convenience has become all too comfortable and I lose sight of what chemicals I maybe using. This detox challenge is perfect timing especially as it’s the change of season, two of my kids have very sensitive skin and they always tend to have their allergies flare up when the weather changes which is about now. By taking the time to acknowledge what I am using around the home and the chemical content, I am hopeful this may help reduce these occurences.
So over the next week I am really going to take note of everything I use to clean around the house and also what chemicals maybe within our kitchen. I’ll let you know how I go next week.
The cooler season also means different type of cooking in my kitchen, more casserole dishes, soups etc. Cottage Pie is usually a favourite comfort food on the really cool nights in our household.

However, casserole dishes always tend to need a little extra scrubbing. Not one of my favourite chores each evening. I’ve been given some Finish Power and Pure diswashing tablets to trial, I’m going to see if they will clean my casserole dishes for me… wouldn’t that be nice, one less thing to clean!!
Finish Power & Pure uses Active Oxygen to clean away stubborn food stains, leaving the dishes clean after each wash. It also leaves less chemical residue, helping you lead a healthier lifestyle in your busy life.
