This year more than ever, the tradition of cleaning the whole house to chase out bad energy is really needed to usher in a brand new healthy way of living for 2021.
The Lunar New Year 2021 begins on Friday, 12th February. The 15-day festival starts on a new moon and ends with the Festival of Lanterns on the following full moon. Traditionally, the month prior would see the useless items thrown out and the house cleaned from attic to basement. It is believed that by doing this,there is room for new and good energy to enter your life.
Here is a quick overview of common toxins often added to household cleaning agents.
There are fragrances added to air fresheners, soap and even toilet paper which can contain pthalates known to cause reproductive problems including endometriosis.
Dry-cleaning solutions contain perchloroethylene, a neurotoxin and possible carcinogen which causes dizziness and loss of coordination.
‘Antibacterial’ detergents contain triclosan, a hormone disruptor and probable carcinogen. It is known to be toxic to algae and promotes the growth of drug-resistant bacteria.
Fabric softeners, sheets and many ‘antibacterial’ household cleaners contain QUATS quaternary ammonium compounds, skin irritants. These products are a leading cause of asthma & dermatitis. They pose a similar problem to triclosan, breeding drug-resistant bacteria.
Window, kitchen and multipurpose cleaners can contain 2-butoxyethanol, a powerful solvent which can cause liver and kidney damage as well as narcosis & pulmonary oedema.
Polishing agents and glass cleaners also contain ammonia, a powerful irritant which causes breathing problems including chronic asthma and bronchitis.
Chlorine in scouring powders, toilet cleaners, mildew removers, laundry whiteners and household tap water is a known skin & lung irritant, and may disrupt thyroid function.
Lastly, oven and drain cleaners contain sodium hydroxide which is very corrosive and can cause burns to our delicate skin.
