EWG is a great website for you to easily decode what’s in your cleaners and how harmful they really are. In Spring 2016 their report determined that almost 1/2 of the products in this update were rated “poor” on ingredient disclosure. According to the report:

Almost three-fourths contain ingredients which may have worrisome respiratory health effects. Of particular concern, such chemicals were routinely found in all-purpose spray cleaners.
More than one-fourth of products scored moderate to high concern because they contain ingredients linked to cancer or may contain impurities linked to cancer.
One-fifth of products scored moderate to high concern because they contain ingredients associated with developmental, endocrine or reproductive harm.

This is of great concern to me as a Mom which is why I decided to use my own Homemade Bathroom Cleaner. It’s easy and cheap and not full of nasty ingredients.

I estimate this Homemade Bathroom Cleaner will cost me no more than $1 for the bottle using Young Living essential oils.  Yes there are other oils out there but quality does matter. While I only need to add 4 drops of oil into my diffuser to get a great smell I’ve heard others using “cheaper” oils need to add 20+ drops.  So even though mine look more expensive they’re really not plus I know they’re 100% pure and safe around my children.
