FOR MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE
Growing up my mom never thought twice about the cleaning products that she used around the house. She just wanted ones that would “get the job done”. From Clorox Bleach to Windex, these were the staples that she always had on hand.
And as I grew up and began to help clean too, I knew that the scents would burn my eyes and give me a headache, and the chemicals would severely dry out my hands, but my fix was to wear gloves and to clean faster – I never thought about actually changing products!
That is until I began to get into the whole ‘health scene’ and realized just what was in these cleaning products and the negative effect that they could play on my body. And then once I became pregnant, and now that I have a toddler running around, I am that much more conscious about everything that not only goes in my little one, but in his surrounding environment as well.
Although there are a ton of Organic and/or chemical-free products on store shelves these days, they are definitely not all created equal. From the way they clean to the way they smell, some brands are much better than others. And with Truce, I feel like they have mastered it all.
THE PRODUCT: Truce is a complete line of cleaning products, room sprays, and even dog shampoos that are not only toxin-free, but smell so good you [almost] want to eat them. With 3 main products that can be used to clean virtually your entire home, 3 sprays to leave both your body and rooms smelling fresh, and a dog shampoo and crate spray, Truce literally has something for every inch of your home.
All of Truce products are: non-toxic, phthalate free, SLS free, biodegradable, made with essential oils, aromatherapeutic, fragrance free, casein free, paraben free, recyclable and made with recycled labels and water soluble inks, grey water safe, chlorine free, PVC free, CFC free, hypoallergenic, NPE free, petroleum free, GMO free, and are handcrafted in the USA. Furthermore, 25¢ of every bottle sold is donated to the charity at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Camp Rainbow.
In addition, Truce believes in conserving resources and the environment in every way possible, so all of their products are shipped without water (meaning they are all in concentrate form). Not only does this help to reduce shipping and fuel costs on their end, the savings are passed on to consumers as well. So, when the product runs out, there is no need to toss the bottle, just order their concentrated refills and you will be saving both money and the environment.
The 3 main cleaning products include:
Dust & Polish: For wood and laminate furniture, cabinets, floors, and both painted and stainless steel surfaces; made with orange & lemon essential oils. Clean & Brighten: An all-purpose surface cleaner that is perfect for glass, mirrors and granite. It also cleans stainless steel, tile, linoleum, slate, natural stone and concrete surfaces. It even spot cleans rugs! Made with peppermint essential oils, this truly is an all-surface cleaner. Scrub & Scour: A powerful multi-purpose cleanser. Made with a combination of Borax (a naturally occurring mineral), salt, and baking soda, you will get a non-abrasive yet very effective cleansing powder that is great for those hard to clean areas of your home. It also contains natural oxygen bleach, castile soap and peppermint essential oil for an invigorating cleaning experience. Truce also has 3 room sprays which help to clean and freshen stale, odor-laden air and leaves a fresh, non-lingering scent behind. Made of pure water and an exclusive blend of aromatherapeutic essential oils, you won’t find any eye-watering chemicals or artificial fragrances in these sprays – all of which are perfect for linens, your pillow, as a room fragrance or deodorizer, or even as a body spray. Available in Lavender & Lemongrass, Citrus & Lemongrass, and Lavender & Citrus.
Finally, Truce has a dog shampoo and a dog crate spray, both filled with peppermint essential oils so no matter where your dog may linger, there won’t be a dirty scent that follows suit.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Once you become pregnant (and then of course have your baby), you realize how much more attention you give to all of your surroundings and how they can [chemically] affect you. From purchasing Organic produce to sanitizing your shopping carts, you feel like you can never be too careful when it comes to your little one’s health.
However, what many parents unfortunately don’t realize is that the products they are using to clean can actually be making their families sick! Filled with phthalates, parabens, bleach, GMOs, chlorine and more, it’s no wonder that the household cleaners we have been using for years burn our eyes and completely ruin our hands.
And what about the stuff you use on your dogs! Have you ever thought about the chemicals that are in them?! To many of us, dogs are like our children too, so why wouldn’t we give them the same consideration?
Well thanks to Truce and their line of essential oil-infused products, not only will your house get clean, germs get killed, and dog be soft and clean, you will also have a sweet and subtle aroma of peppermint left behind – so your head can get cleared too! Plus, with their affordable prices and convenient concentrate refills, I don’t see how you can go wrong.
Try Truce for yourself and tell me if you aren’t hooked!
