Heal your home

For everyone who has seen the Story of Stuff video, you'll remember all the untested chemicals (ahem toxins) that we are constantly exposed to in our own homes!! Scary stuff, especially considering that many of the ingredients are cancer-related, and they are found in so many different places, from personal care items to air fresheners to cookware. Check out Co op America's Heal Your Home, "a one-stop shop for the articles we’ve written on nontoxic living over the past few years, from finding least-toxic paints and stains to making your own green cleaners to detoxing your entire bedroom. " Just one more reason why I'll have to go back to my dear Baba and profess his genius in using lemon juice, apple cider, and baking soda for the stuck-on grease...
