TOXINS IN DOORS : part 1.
Protect Yourself From Toxins
HOW DO YOU TACKLE #TOXINS WITHIN YOUR HOME?
Where do you start?
Should it be the kitchen, the living room, the bedroom or the garage?
Every "second" of our life indoors (be it at home or office or even in our very own cars) we face an assortment of dangers like fume, vapour and gases off chemicals, furniture, fittings, range of energy waves of differing strengths, from mobile phones and remote controls to telegraphic and high voltage towers or equipment.
This is our modern world and the more we got advanced and modernized very competitively between industries and countries, we brought along knowingly or unknowingly, a whole spectrum of unforeseen and least expected range of side effects and ills.
Do you think that discovery has stopped or is it at a faster pace in a more continuing competitive environment with new found technology. In the process the content of "toxins" is also being dumped into the world of ours.
Within home and office, there is simply no limit to toxins and not all of it can be got rid off with a snap of thumb and finger. We can do what we can to minimise toxin content in the air in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
1. Open the windowswhenever you can. Especially early mornings or after a heavy downpour. Mother nature regularly cleans the air outside with mist, dew and rain. The air outside is always cleaner than the indoor air. So do let outside air come in, ventilate and allow for air exchange to take place.
2. Buy the best cleaner. Avoid using the traditional vacuum cleaners with or without bags. These pollute indoor air. http://thiruslivelifewell.blogspot.com suggests a good solution.
3. Time in our vehicles.Do not set your car's air conditioner to recirculate air. Select for the outside air option. You must clean the air conditioner and ducting system to reduce accumulated dust and pollutants.
4. Introduce air purifiers. Ensure that the filters are effective, washed and replaced accordingly. http://thiruslvelifewell.blogspot.com suggests a good alternative.
5. Avoid using wrinkle-free materials. Save yourself from PFC exposure. Some ironing would not hurt. Also, it is good to have ourselves dressed in safe, natural material during the day and also while at sleep with pajamas and in bedding made from organic cotton.
6. Trust your nose. Trust your senses.
7. Use one-half cup of white vinegar in place of fabric softener in the washer to reduce static cling and soften clothing.
8. Unwrap and air out your dry-cleaned garments for at least two days in an exterior area. Not in the closet or bedroom.
9. Do leave open your windows and leave your mattress exposed without bed covers and sheets in order to allow your bed to dry, let off off trapped odours and gases of the product components.
10. Keep all electrical products unplugged, when not in use. Try and use night lights, alarm clocks and other bedroom electronics that are illuminated with red light, which is less disturbing.
Malaysia: Selangor families can witness a demonstration on request on a home cleaning system that is also an air purifier. Water is the best cleanser of air, toxins and almost anything and everything else at home.
