12 Clean Products You Could Switch to Right Now
Do you know when there are very specific situations that stick out in your mind and you’ll never forget? One of mine is the reason that we first started our clean product journey in 2016!
A few days after we brought our first daughter home, we used a body wash that was supposed to be specific for babies! Much to our surprise, she broke out in a red, bumpy rash all over her body and we had no idea why.
I was breastfeeding so I eliminated dairy from my diet. Nothing changed within a few days. The laundry detergent was a “cleaner” detergent, so we assumed that was not it. Next thing we checked was the body wash and lotion we were using.
BAM! Within about 2 days, the bumps cleared up. We could not believe that the body wash and lotion we were using on our new baby was the cause of the red bumps all over her body.
Over the last 4.5 years, my family has cleaned up one product at a time in our house. Body wash, lotion, deodorant, laundry detergent and fabric softener, just to name a few quick ones. I am more intentional about the things we purchase and use on our bodies. We don’t use fragrance scented candles anymore or those wall plug-ins. Plus, they always gave me a headache anyway!
My biggest piece of advice for starting your clean product journey is to just start! Pick one product that you are ready to switch and just switch. It doesn’t have to be the cleanest product out there but finding something cleaner than you are currently using is a great way to start and a WIN!
Being more intentional about the things you use in your house and on your skin takes time to figure out. It’s been 4.5 years for us and there are things that I still want to clean up in our house.
To help you get started though, I created a CLEAN product swap guide with the top 12 products that we have switched out over the last 4 years, plus a couple of other clean suggestions that we have come to love!
I know that you are busy mom who wants to make better product choices for your family, and it can be overwhelming to get started with all of the choices! The product recommendations that I make, I have personally researched and used in my house before I share about them!
