Amazing- Best Cleaning Products, You Will Not Believe This!

A Search for the Best Cleaning Products!

Why am I searching for the best cleaning products? Well, as many of you know (and for those who don’t) this past January,  I was diagnosed with a blood cancer – multiple myeloma.  This cancer and its treatment in known to wreck your immune system and cause thin and broken bones.  For the past year I have been very conscientious of various chemicals and have been leaning toward more natural ways of cleaning and disinfecting my surroundings with things like white vinegar, essential oils etc…

That being disclosed…over this past Thanksgiving Holiday I came down with what I thought was a benign common cold… I realized, in the past this would have been about a three day event for me. Sniffly nose, extra multi vitamins and extra vitamins C, some hot tea with lemon and raw honey, bam- done-knocked out of my system. Not this time,  it has become a long drawn out ordeal that I am fighting nearly three weeks later and resulted in one week of my treatment being canceled.

So, much to my chagrin, I need to find better ways to protect myself during chemo treatments that tend to reduce my immune system even further.

Tested to find the best…

I was amazed when I ran across this blog from Annie Pryor. She has a Ph.D. in biochemistry and after working in a research lab for a few years, retired to be a stay at home Mom.  Kudos for being able to do that!   After a moderate review of her post (it is a long blog with lots and lots of testing), I realized the things I thought were good don’t seem to make the grade and things that I have around, but never thought of as a cleaning products gave some amazing results.  The post goes into detail testing of several items both commercial and natural, the test were done under various conditions.  If you can’t wrap your head around it now, book mark it and come back for reference.  I know I will!

For now I am switching … My new go to’s  1) H2O2  2) Pure Theives EO 3) Clorox clean up with bleach.

 

I wonder if I can add my Thieves EO to H2O2, inquiring minds…

 

UPDATE: 10/7/2017

I tried the Thieves EO with the H2O2 but did not like the fragrance of the two mixed, (although H2O2 seems to be odorless) so I switched to Lemon grass EO, which I find more pleasant.
For those of you still trying to wrap you head around this, here is a good cheat sheet from Annie, Hope it helps you as much as it did me!
