Before I became a mom, I made it a priority to use products and eat foods that were non-toxic. While you may know the dangers of eating artificial colors or sweeteners, you might not know the dangers of regular household cleaners.
Most household products are made with harsh chemicals which can be bad for your health. Chemicals not only are ingested through food but can also be absorbed into your skin through a lotion or inhaled. Think of how stuffy sometimes a freshly cleaned room feels. Certain products have been linked to increasing your risk for a number of health concerns including asthma, leukemia and cancers. Some of these ingredients are known to cause cancers in animals and therefore thought to also be carcinogenic for humans as well.
We do not know a ton about these toxic ingredients, but avoiding long term exposure is a smart idea for overall health and wellness of your family. Exposure to some of these household cleaners just once a week raises your risk of asthma! Better safe than sorry.
I still use some products that are not clean like my favorite hair products (hello, Living Proof dry shampoo) and Nick loves his Clorox bleach wipes which I reluctantly allow but I’m finding it so much easier lately to make the switch in full and get most of our household products without harsh chemicals thanks to Grove Collaborative.
If you haven’t yet heard of Grove.co, you will soon because it’s amazing. They are online marketplace carrying natural, sustainable and non toxic products from some of my favorite brands like Dr Bronners and Seventh Generation. They do the homework so you don’t have to and deliver the items right to your door.
Shipping is free if you’re a VIP member ($19.99/year), otherwise it’s just $2.99.
We use Grove to buy a lot of essentials including diapers, vitamins, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent, dishwasher gel, paper towels, insect repellant and cold remedies. Grove makes it easy to get all your natural and non-toxic products in one place.
I have Amazon Prime but I rarely use their Pantry service because I can never seem to find what I’m looking for in the quantity and quality of what I want to purchase. Living in the city, I don’t have room to store a ton of stuff like paper towels and it gets tricky even when it comes to ordering laundry detergent. Can I just order one? You have to fill the box to get free shipping and it always feels like I’m adding random products I don’t want to buy to get said eligible free shipping. With Grove, they give me free products as a VIP.

Here is a video haul featuring a few of my favorite items that I regularly get from Grove.
Here are a few products featured in this video and why I love them.
If you have a toddler, you need to carry these in your bag 24/7 especially if you live in the city and your child touches EVERYTHING. They are paragon and sulfate free and made without alcohol!
I get asked what prenatal vitamins I take quite frequently and these have been my favorite Omega-3 supplement during both pregnancies because they do not give me a fishy after taste. They are organic and I trust New Chapter as a brand for top quality when it comes to supplements. Omega-3 supplements help baby boy’s brain and eye development and I save 34% when I buy it from Grove – it’s about $13 cheaper on Grove than Amazon… shhh.
I am and have never used harsh chemicals to wash any of Tommy’s clothes and I do not use toxic laundry detergent on my own either. I love this one from Mrs. Meyers because it is 98% naturally derived ingredients and paraben free.
