DIY Recipes and Safer Substitutions:

Bath Soaks

· Soothing soak: Add 1-2 cups organic milk, 1/2 cup honey to bath water.

· Soothing soak: Put 1/2 cup steel cut or rolled oatmeal (not instant or quick oats) in an old clean nylon or sock and add to bath water.

· Bubbles: Use a few drops of castile soap.

Conditioner

· Oily-regular hair, or for dandruff: Use a mixture of 1-4 parts apple cider vinegar to 8 parts water. Apple cider vinegar may give hair lighter or reddish highlights over time.

· Regular hair: Massage mashed avocado into hair and let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse. Do this once a week after shampooing.

· Regular-dry: Massage mashed banana with olive oil into hair and let sit for 30 minutes before shampooing. Do this once a week before shampooing.

· Dry, thick hair: Massage in 1 tbs of coconut oil to hair ends, or add to shampoo.

Hair Dye

· Dark: Rinse with coffee or black tea and let sit for 30-60 minutes.

· Lighter: Rinse with chamomile tea or honey (mix 3 parts honey to 1 part water) and let sit for 30-60 minutes.

· Red: Try henna, or mix apple cider vinegar and water (1 part of each) and let sit for 30 minutes. Add olive oil for moisture if needed.

Moisturizer

· Try an organic and unrefined (virgin or pressed) safflower oil, sunflower oil, or shea butter.

Shampoo

· Oily hair: Use liquid castile soap.

· Dry hair: Mix 1 part raw honey with 3 parts water daily. Honey may gently lighten hair over time.

Shaving Cream

· Use glycerine or castile soap, sunflower oil, or shea butter.




Clothing & Laundry Detox Guide:

Top 10 Tips:

1.      Avoid PERC-based dry-cleaners—ask for professional wet-cleaning instead.

2.      Wash new clothes before wearing.

3.      Avoid wrinkle-free, stain-resistant clothing.

4.      Choose polyurethane-coated waterproof shells over vinyl or fluorochemical raincoats.

5.      Avoid clothing with fake leather or plastic prints.

6.      Try castile or other plant-based detergent instead of detergents containing fragrances and optical brighteners.

7.      Don't use fabric softener or dryer sheets—try baking soda, vinegar, or dryer balls to soften clothes if needed.

8.      Use cedar wood and sealed containers instead of mothballs.

9.      Try lemon juice or oxygen bleach to keep whites whiter, and treat chlorine bleach as a last resort.

10.   Steer clear of clothes that have odor-resistant or antibacterial properties.

Use Labels to Find Safer Products


Clothing and Linens

Look For:

· The following labels identify organic clothing and clothing with less toxic treatments and dyes.
    


Avoid:

· Vinyl materials and plastic prints

· Products advertised as antibacterial, antimicrobial, odor-resistant, stain-resistant, wrinkle-free


Detergents

Look For:

· Fragrance-free

· Plant-based, "Made with organic ingredients"

· No optical brighteners

· Safer Choice logo




Avoid:

· "Poison," "danger," "caution," "warning" on the label

· Products advertised as antibacterial, antimicrobial, or stain-protecting


Dry Cleaning

· Best: Professional wet cleaning is a non-toxic, environmentally safe alternative to PERC. In wet cleaning, clothes are washed in water but with much gentler conditions than a home washer.

· Good: Liquid carbon dioxide is a non-toxic alternative to PERC that uses liquid carbon dioxide to break apart stains.

· Unclear: Some "green" cleaning systems use the siloxane D5, a silicon-based chemical that is similar to D4 which is an endocrine disruptor in animals.

· Unclear: Other hydrocarbon solvents are sometimes used in place of PERC. These may also have negative health and environmental effects.

· Worst: PERC, aka perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene is a likely human carcinogen. The majority of dry cleaners still use PERC.

DIY Guide and Recipes

Clean and Soften Laundry

Use one or more of the following helpful hints.

· Use a vegetable-based (castile) soap.

· Add 1/2 cup baking soda (1/4 cup for HE) in with your clothes when you load the washing machine.

· Add 1/2 cup white vinegar (1/4 cup for HE) during the rinse cycle, or pour it into a built-in fabric softener dispenser. WARNING! Do not use bleach with vinegar. It will produce chlorine gas. Do not use on polyurethane treated fabrics like waterproof diaper covers.

· Use 6 felted wool dryer balls made from undyed wool yarn in the dryer to soften clothes, reduce static, and dry clothes faster.


Stain Removal

· Vinegar for berries, tomatoes, coffee, tea, grass, ink

· Castile soap for grease, makeup, chocolate

· Enzymes for chocolate, dairy, grass, and feces—make a paste from a crushed digestive enzymes tablet and water.


Static Control

· Dry synthetic and natural fabrics separately—most synthetic fabrics drip dry quickly, or you can use separate dryer loads.

· Avoid having natural and synthetic fabrics rub against each other in your outfits.

· Fill a spray bottle with clean water and spritz as needed.

· Run a wire hanger or other conductive metal over fabric to remove the charge.


Whitening, Mold and Mildew Removal

· Add 1/2 cup lemon juice (1/4 cup for HE) to a load of laundry instead of bleach.

· For stronger whitening, soak clothes for 1 hr or more in 1/2 cup lemon juice per gallon of water.

· After lemon juice treatment, dry in sunlight if possible. Sunlight also helps to get rid of mold and mildew. 



Food and Drink Detoxing Guide: 

Top 10 Tips:

1.      To avoid pollutants like PCBs that accumulate in fat, remove the fat and skin from meat and fish before cooking. Drain fat that accumulates while cooking.

3.      Avoid eating canned food or moist food packaged in plastic or lined cardboard.

4.      Choose organic produce, meat, and dairy when possible.

5.      Microwave and store foods in glass rather than plastic.

6.      Switch to a glass or stainless steel French press or drip coffee maker.

7.      Phase out non-stick pans from your kitchen.

8.      Use glass or stainless steel water bottles instead of plastic.

Cooking Oils

· SautĂ©ing: Coconut, olive oil, or clarified butter (ghee) are stable at sautĂ©ing temperatures. 

· Frying: Coconut oil is stable at frying temperatures (355°F).


Cookware

· Look for ceramic enamel, cast iron, stainless or carbon steel, or anodized aluminum.

· Helpful tip: to clean cast iron or unanodized metal cookware, add water to the pan and boil on the stove to loosen stuck-on food, scraping with a spatula to loosen where needed. Dump the water, and add about 2 tbs of salt or a handful of used coffee grounds to the pan. Use a rag and elbow grease to scrub with the salt/coffee grounds. Dump, rinse with water, and dry. Lightly rub the inside with vegetable oil before storage.


Meat and Dairy

DIY Recipes and Safer Substitutions


All Purpose Cleaner

For non-porous surfaces like tile and ceramic

· Try warm water.

· If needed, dissolve 1 tbs baking soda in 1 cup of warm water.


Dish Soap

· Use castile soap.


Disinfection

· Water, soap, and scrubbing are sufficient for most purposes. If needed, after scrubbing you can disinfect further using one of the following methods.

· Apply 3% hydrogen peroxide to surface and let sit for 10 minutes (test on a small area first).

· Use a steam cleaning device.


Floors

· For regular cleaning, use a damp mop.

· For heavier, less frequent cleaning, mix a few drops of castile soap and a capful of vinegar in a half bucket of water. Rinse with clean water.

· For non-porous floors, also try the all purpose cleaner.


Furniture and Rugs

· Steam clean with hot water.

· For heavy cleaning, add up to 1 cup of vinegar to 2.5 gallons of water.

· For an extra boost, sprinkle baking soda on stains before cleaning.


Glass, Chrome, and Scratchable Surfaces

· Add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 1 cup water. or

· Add 1 tbs white vinegar and 3/4 tsp cornstarch to 1 cup water.


Heavy Duty Scrub

· Make a paste by adding liquid castile soap to baking soda and mixing. Spread and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then scrub surface. Wipe clean to remove paste, then rinse with water. For hard surfaces like ceramic, metal, and glass. Test other surfaces by applying to a small area first.


Soap Scum Prevention

· Mix 3/4 tsp white vinegar with 1 cup of water. Spray on and rinse, or squeegee off.


Sponges and Rags

· Fold cleaning cloths in half, and then in half again, and use one surface to clean. Refold and use a fresh surface for each area before washing thoroughly—it will last you 8 times longer and prevent the spread of pathogens.

· Use microfiber cloth with a "denier" level of 1.0 or smaller. 0.13 "denier" is best.



Children’s Products Detox Guide:

Top 10 Tips:

1.      Control lead dust and paint fumes when preparing the nursery. Have a non-pregnant friend do the work, or if needed, use protective gear.

2.      Look for furniture and kids' products (like nursing pillows and nap pads) with padding made from polyester, wool, cotton, or flame retardant-free foam.

3.      Set up the furniture and air out the baby's sleeping and play spaces well before your due date.

4.      If formula is needed, choose powdered instead of concentrated or ready to drink formula. 

5.      Buy snug-fitting cotton or polyester children's pajamas, and avoid sleepwear treated with flame-resistant chemicals.

6.      Avoid soft vinyl plastic found in things like mattress protectors, toys, and rain gear. For waterproof materials, choose polyurethane coated fabric instead.

7.      Choose simple fragrance-free personal care products made from plants, like castile soap and olive oil. Use fragrance-free baby wipes and diapers.

8.      Choose glass or stainless steel over plastic bottles and sippy cups.

9.      Teach kids to wash their hands before eating.

10.   Choose smaller seafood over big fish. Chunk light tuna has less mercury than white or albacore tuna, and salmon, shrimp, cod and tilapia have less mercury than mackerel, swordfish, bass, and grouper.

Products That Can Help You Detox the Toxins Accumulated In Your Body:


Zeoboost (Zeolite Powder) (Also helps cure cancer, autoimmune, autism, psoriasis, & more): To Detox The Heavy Metals

90 Day Zeolite Detox Instructions:

2 teaspoons of Zeoboost (Zeolite Powder) mixed in 16 oz of water 3 times a day or 3 teaspoons of Zeoboost (Zeolite Powder) mixed in 16 oz of water 2 times a day.  I recommend starting with the 2 teaspoons and working your way up to the 3 teaspoons while your body adjusts. The powder does not have a taste so you will not need to worry about this. It is best to mix with water, to avoid the powder binding to anything prior to entering your body.  You will follow this regiment for 90 days straight. You may notice some detox symptoms that may occur such as headaches and not being able to sleep within the first couple weeks of taking it. This is normal. If you experience sharp and/or uncomfortable pain, I would switch to a lower dose of only 1 teaspoon 3 times a day or less.  Make sure NOT to handle the powder with metal. The powder binds to metal so DO NOT put in a metal container and make sure to use either plastic or glass. It is recommended that because Zeoboost is a binder, make sure to take it by itself and leave a 1-hour window between taking the Zeoboost and food/medication/supplements. After the 90 days, you can cycle off of the Zeoboost for a week or two, and then take daily maintenance doses of 2 teaspoons a day mixed in 16oz of water. It is best to continue taking Zeolite due to all the toxins we are still being exposed to in our air, food, and water, currently.

Note: 1 jar of Zeoboost (90g) lasts about 7 days so if you would like to do the 90-day detox, you will need about 15 jars total. You should notice a difference after 1 jar. You do not have to do the full 90 days consecutively, it is best to start as soon as possible and if there are gaps in between, this will not have any impact on your detox. Zeoboost is what I used on my own personal journey, so I would highly recommend this brand. I also highly recommend Heiltropfen Brand. Please see conversions below to know how many jars will be needed to complete the 90-day detox. Both brands are highly recommended and I have used both.

Zeolite Cautions:

·        Taking too much zeolite without drinking enough water may cause dehydration and constipation so make sure you are well hydrated before starting a zeolite detox. To help prevent constipation, increase your fiber intake or supplement with magnesium. 

·        If you have major kidney problems, be cautious about your water intake and take minimum doses of zeolite. 

·        If you take more than 10g of zeolite powder per day over a very long period of time it may cause some loss of nutrition. 

·        DO NOT take iodine within 30 minutes of taking Zeolite. 

·        DO NOT take zeolite at the same time as oil-based supplements, i.e. evening primrose oil or fish oil, as zeolite absorbs oil. Make sure to take these supplements at a separate time of day. 

·        DO NOT take zeolite at the same time as probiotics, as zeolite is antimicrobial. 

·        DO NOT take zeolite powder while you are taking a medication containing heavy metals, such as lithium, or containing platinum, which is found in some cancer medications. Instead, take zeolite after stopping the medication to help rid your body of the heavy metals. 

·        If you are having chemotherapy or radiation therapy, take zeolite before, between and after treatments but NOT during treatments.
