This became particularly important to me when I was pregnant with my first child over 12 years ago. I wanted to reduce my baby's exposure to toxins that could harm him. I have developed a pretty good understanding of natural and organic living over the years and I have sampled a great number of products. I want to share some of my findings with you through Woman in Real Life's new "Products We Love" series.
"Products We Love" will feature family- and earth-friendly, healthy foods and household products that have been tested and enjoyed by my family. I was going to start the series in 2014, but I really wanted to share this first wonderful item with you in time for the holidays. Trust me, you will want to do your holiday cleaning with these products.
I first spotted C is for Clean all-purpose cleaner at the Delicious Food Show in Toronto. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful packaging. The simple design of the labels combined with the pretty touches of purple, pink and orange appealed to me.
Then I read the descriptions of the three available scents - sweet orange and lemongrass, lavender and vanilla, pink grapefruit - they sounded edible and I just had to smell them! I have a pretty sensitive nose and I have developed an aversion to toxic scents. In fact, if I'm passing through the cleaning or laundry aisles at a supermarket I sometimes feel lightheaded and weak.
C is for Clean products are not only wonderfully fragrant, they smell completely natural, just like you are cutting up fruit or picking lavender. That makes sense because C is for Clean products are scented with essential oils from real plants. The products contain no toxins, dyes, petroleum by-products or nasty chemicals at all.
C is for Clean founder Maggie McKeown, a trained chef and recipe creator, recommends using her hand-made cleaners anywhere you need some extra cleaning power - just shake, spray and wipe on your counters and tables, ﬂoors, high chairs, toys, car seats, microwaves, lunch bags, fridges, mirrors, bath tubs and even your kitchen sink to keep your home sparkling clean and smelling delightful.
I have become completely addicted to using C is for Clean products. I'm not kidding. While I'm not a big fan of housecleaning, I enjoy using this all-purpose cleaner so much that I even use it while I'm watching TV. I spray it on anything in sight - walls, light switches, the fireplace trim, the mirror above the fireplace, the coffee table. I have also used it on my pleather winter boots, kitchen cupboards, the stovetop, my stainless steel fridge, toilets and sinks. I travel up and down staircases using it to remove fingerprints from walls, light switches and door knobs. It smells amazing and it cleans brilliantly.
Maggie has developed a limited edition peppermint and clementine all-purpose cleaner in time for the holidays. It works as effectively as all of the other cleaners and will fill your home with the scent of Christmas as you clean - no candles needed! It's not available on the C is for Clean website, but you can call 416-702-4042 to order. They are selling like hot cakes at the One of a Kind Show right now. They would make a fabulous hostess gift too!
