Household Cleaning Supplies – Natural vs. Chemical

Are you a responsible citizen who is concerned about environmental pollution? It is a huge problem that needs to be addressed with urgency. Exhaust from vehicles, emissions from factories, and effluents from industries are all wreaking havoc on our environment. You really want to do something but just don’t know where to start the clean-up? Begin at home. It is a matter of greater urgency!


You’d be surprised to know that the pollution within the walls of your cozy home is worse than that in the world outside! It is important to clean your home but are you creating a more toxic environment in the process? Take a peek inside your mop closet. On an average, a household has around 3 to 25 gallons of toxic chemicals; most of them are found in household cleaning supplies. Are these sweet-smelling cleaning agents the cause for many a malady? Is there an escape from these toxins? investigates…

It is unfortunate that no law makes it mandatory for manufacturers to list the ingredients in a cleaning product or test them for safety. The ingredients are regarded as ‘trade secrets’. Government regulations protect this ‘secret’ rather than protecting the health of humans. Of course, there are warning labels galore; POISON, WARNING and DANGER are too generic and don’t provide adequate information. Nor do they give us an idea of the long-term effects these products would have on our health. Using these cleaning agents for a long time can cause irritation of the respiratory tract and even Asthma. It is a disturbing fact that younger children are much more vulnerable to these health problems than adults.

Laundry detergents, window cleaners, air fresheners, hardwood floor cleaners, stain removers, odor removers, dishwashing soap, bathroom cleaners, disinfectants, trash bags, plastic dishes and containers, paints, herbicides, pesticides, dry-cleaning chemicals, paper towels  and the non-stick surface on frying pans – almost all these cleaning supplies (and the list is nowhere near complete!) contain hazardous carcinogens. Degrading foam in cushions and furniture can release PBDEs (endocrine disruptors) into the atmosphere, adding to its noxiousness.

Alkyl phenols are chemicals used in the industrial production of detergents and other cleaning products. They have been extensively researched and are shown to affect development of mammary gland in rats. Fragrances used in Laundry detergents and fabric softeners could cause severe allergy, headache, irritation in the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. About a third of the substances used in such fragrances are toxic. If it smells so good, something must be fishy!

Let’s face the dirty and dangerous side of household cleaning supplies. These chemical cleaners pose a real threat to your health and well-being.

It slices, it dices, it cleans, it sweeps, it shines, it polishes, it turns black to white and white to black, it is the amazing cure-all from the far reaches of Africa step right up and get your bottle now!


One of the things we have discovered over here at is that there truly are all-natural products that are measures better than anything else on the market. These products harness the power of the ingredients found in nature to serve a purpose important to people. Why don’t we hear about them and see them on store shelves? Let’s dive into the problem.


Productification is a word I just created and it really sums up the problem with everything we buy and use. In a consumer based society companies are looking to sell products that “work” but cost next to nothing to work. By mixing cheap and readily available synthetic chemicals companies can produce products that get the job done, smell pretty, and store forever. These products can be packaged smartly and sold/ marketed even more smartly to generate billions in sales annually… but at what cost?

For regular readers of our blog the horrible effects of the various chemicals found in “normal” products are mind boggling but the productification has generated a consistent demand that no one questions. When was the last time you actually stopped to look at the ingredient list on your shampoo, body soap, or laundry detergent? Some of these chemicals are toxic to living beings!

Old is New

The first step in living clean is to stop assuming that what you are doing now and buying regularly is right. Question the products, question the labels, and question the marketing. On our end we have discovered Dr. Woods Shea Vision Castile Soap with Organic Shea Butter and Pure Almond. This is the perfect cleaning product you may have never heard of. The key ingredients are in the name but deserve repeating: Almond, Castile Soap, and Shea Butter.

Castile Soap, or vegetable oil based soap, has been used for millennia and is derived from combining olive oil and sodium hydroxide. The main vegetable base may change but the underlying makeup does not… it is natural. Almond oil, like Castile Soap, has enjoyed a renascence of respect for all its great qualities on the human body. The natural character of the oil provides nourishment and cleansing in one package. Finally Shea Butter is derived from a plant found in the African Sahara that can be boiled down to key ingredients. The Shea Butter is the perfect moisturizer for skin.

By combining all these ingredients together Dr. Woods Shea Vision Castile Soap with Organic Shea Butter and Pure Almond provides a quality package of cleanser for your face, body, and hair that also can be used as a generic cleaner in laundry and for counters. As you can see this really is a product that does all the snake oil promises without the snake oil scam. has identified several other natural quality cleansers and they can all be found and further research in our marketplace here.

How Soap Can Save Your Family $500 This Year

What would you do with an extra $500 at the end of the year? How would you feel knowing that your children and pets are safe from chemicals that are known to cause cancer and other diseases? A close friend of mine is always coming up with clever ways to save money so that she can plan vacations with her family. I, however, am not one to skimp on my morning latte to reward my future self, so I usually just listen to her latest plans with admiration and sometimes a little bit of envy. But after hearing about her latest plan to save $500 and create a safer home without making any sacrifices, I couldn’t help but do the same. Want in on the secret? It’s simple: start cleaning your house with Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap.

Step 1 Go Nayked with Dr. Bronner

An average four-person family spends $800/year on household cleaning supplies. We buy these products with the intention of keeping our families safe from germs, yet many of them can cause severe health problems. The good news is that you can replace some of the most expensive and harmful products with Dr. Bronner’s soap, and find safe alternatives for the rest at our GO-NAYKED marketplace. Most families report that 64 ounces of Dr. Bronner’s soap will last them at least a year; you can get 64 ounces here for $32.38. This soap can replace over half of the items on your cleaning supply shopping list and effectively save you up to $500/year.

Step 2 Choose the Products that You Want to Replace

At Go-Nayked, we’ve tested the different recommended uses of Dr. Bronner’s soap to find the most effective, cost-effective, and healthful ways to use it. The first thing we recommend replacing is your pest spray. Pesticides are expensive, bad for the environment, associated with a wide range of health problems, and are particularly concerning for families with young children and pets. Laundry detergent is another expensive cleaning product that often contains carcinogens and hormone disruptors. Toilet bowl cleaners contain chemicals that are known to damage the respiratory system, while chemicals in many all-purpose cleaners and window cleaners are neurotoxins. Fortunately, you can protect your family from these effects while saving hundreds of dollars a year by simply replacing these products with a little Dr. Bronner DIY magic.

Step 3: DIY Recipes

Pesticide: Fill a reusable spray bottle with 4 cups of water and 1 table spoon of soap, and add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Bonus Tip: To help the solution stick to the plants, add two tablespoons of olive oil.

Laundry Detergent: Use ½ cup of soap per load. Bonus Tip: Add ½ cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle to fight lint and static cling.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Buy or reuse an old squeeze bottle and fill it with 1 part soap and 4 parts water. Bonus Tip: sprinkle baking soda on the brush to act as an abrasive and a deodorizer

All-purpose Cleaner: Fill a reusable spray bottle with 1 part water and 1 part soap. Bonus Tip: Fill a container with water and orange peels and let sit for 24 hours. Strain water into the spray bottle and add soap for a clean, citrus scent.

Window Cleaner: To remove grime from windows add 1 Tbsp. soap to 4 cups of water. Bonus Tip: Follow with a 1:1 vinegar/water solution for a streak-free clean.

Now that you’re armed with this knowledge, you can take the first step towards wealth and health; get the soap here and start saving!
