Dust Bunnies

 

Your cute little dust bunnies are not as harmless as you thought.

 

Dust Bunnies accumulate in the corners of our homes, and can be among the most toxic potions of all.

 

As noted by the Environmental Working Group (EWG): Many chemicals end up in household dust.

 

In a study by Silent Spring Institute: they reported “A study of house dust collected in California homes in 2006 and in 2011 which found 41 different fire retardant chemicals in at least half of the samples

 

A later study (2012) by Silent Spring Institute tested for 49 flame retardant chemicals in household dust, the main route of exposure for people and especially in children.

 

Most homes had at least one chemical above a federal health guideline, compounds in household dust tests, included flame retardants, home-use pesticides and phthalates.

 

A 2002 study by the EWG detected phthalates in nearly ¾ of personal care products tested, when sprayed or applied as make up powder (that contain phthalates) the chemicals can become airborne and accumulate in your dust.

 

Young children in particular may ingest about 50 milligrams of household dust a day. (low levels can cause health issues) making it an important pathway by which people are exposed to environmental contaminants.

So it is probably no surprise that a simple wipe down with water is not enough when it comes to dusting. I would sometimes just wipe dust off of surfaces with my bare hand or a wet paper towel. (OOPS) Not so much anymore.

 

taaaa-daaaaa. T H I E V E S household cleaner. One ultra concentrated bottle has replaced every cleaner in our home (+ it’s lasted forever). Savings upon savings upon savings. The bottle costs $22 and it has the potential to yield 28 bottles of multipurpose cleaner, at around 79¢ per bottle. Thieves household cleaner is free of synthetics, is plant based, essential oil infused (with the well known Thieves blend), and safe to use around every member of the family. All you usually need is one cap full  diluted with water (unless you want the solution to be stronger, in which case you’d use more cleaner). The ratio is 1:30! We keep a couple of glass spray bottles full around the house, I take a 2oz spray bottle full to work, and we also create soft scrubs with baking soda (recipe coming soon). It is perfect for dusting and scrubbing, some also use it to spot clean stains.

See ya dust bunnies.
