In the summertime, it’s all fun in games until the kids come back from playing outside covered in dust and dirt. Not only do you have a mess on your hands, but also the trail of dirt they’ve brought through your kitchen!
As a mom, you probably know this story all too well. But this summer, you can clean the kids and their dirt trails without exposing them to the harmful chemicals that you may find in some cleaning products. Here are some tips for a healthy home—and more importantly, a healthy child—this summer:
Wipe away. Wet cleansing cloths are great to either keep around the house or in your purse. In the summer, they are especially great to use for your kids’ faces when worn out from running around outside or playing at the beach. We suggest OlogyTM Tree-Free Bamboo Baby Wipes. They contain no harmful chemicals and they’re tree free!
Leave it at the door. Outside playtime is great for kids, but as a parent you should always be cautious of what your child tracks in to your home (this is especially important if you have small children). Set up a special mat for kids to leave their shoes when they come in tired after a day of play. It’s a good idea to have them leave not only their shoes, but also any toy they may have been playing with that may need to be cleaned.
Avoid harsh cleaning solutions. Of course with all the fun summer activities, you’ll be running in and out of the house. You don’t always have time or remember to leave your messes at the door, so some quick clean-ups may be necessary. Cleaning products free of harmful chemicals are the way to go and just as effective in cutting through dirt tracked in from the playground and dirty fingerprints on the windows. Try OlogyTM All-Purpose Lemon and Lavender Cleaner and OlogyTM Glossy Streak-Free Glass Cleaner. Both are free of harmful chemicals, plant based and have great fresh scents!
