Detoxing Your kitchen
Use glass containers for storage. Plastic leaches toxins into your foods and is carcinogenic.
Use plain glass dinnerware. Most plates/bowls with designs contain lead. Oneida Anchor, Fiesta dinneraware – only white, Corell – only white, no design. Bed Bath and Beyond has various brands.
Use cast iron or stainless steel pots and pans. Use glass bake ware or stoneware. Nonstick leaches toxins into your food. They are carcinogenic.
Use stainless steel spoons, ladles, and spatulas. Plastic leaches toxins into the food.
Use baking soda and vinegar to clean with. Other chemical cleaners cause pollutants in your environment and should you decide not to use them, you are technically supposed to dispose of them at a hazardous materials site and not in your normal trash bin.
Detoxing your water
Use a water filter for your sink faucet(s) or use a water filter pitcher like the Ecobud Water Filter Jug, Santevia Water System, Kangen Water System or a Big Berkey Water Filter System
Here is some independent testing on different water filters.
Purchase a water filter for your shower head. Here are some other options: Shower Filter with wand, Aquasana Shower Filter, Enviro shower filters, ANESPA, Rainshowr Filters, New Wave Enviro Shower Filter System.
Purchase Vitamin C dechlorination tablets for your bath tub. (My kids do not get in the bath without one)
Purchase an Ozone generator for natural water purification.
