welcome home babyCongratulations!  Everyone is thrilled about the birth of a baby!

“Going green” is beneficial for the health of your entire family; but particularly for a newborn as their lungs, their skin and their immune system continue to mature.  Babies are sensitive to environmental toxins so using products that are chemical-free and safe makes life easier and better for them.

Here’s how to create an optimal environment for your baby to grow and develop.  Here’s to a healthy home with safe, powerful, green and smart cleaning for babies!

Fresh Laundry

For washing your baby’s clothes, towels, crib sheets and blankets, burb cloths and diapers.  Gentle enough for your baby, but powerful enough to clean all your household laundry.

Get Clean Hand Wash dispenserWashing your hands
Your hands will need tender loving care, because hand-washing when changing diapers and to prevent illness is very important.  Reading the ingredients doesn’t adequately explain the difference.  You will love this product with wheat germ oil and algae extract to moisturize; soy protein to condition; aloe, marshmallow (Althaea officinalis), and linden flower (Tilia cordata) extracts to soothe; and rosemary and arnica extracts to energize.

Washing dishes and bottles and all things by hand or in the dishwasher
It’s essential to keep your baby’s bottle and nipples and dishes chemical-free. This Dish Washer Automatic Concentrate is Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA)**.  We love the GET CLEAN Hand Dish Wash Liquid Concentrate, too, because it cleans bottles and nipples and rinses easily.

A word about disinfectants
Sure, we all think it would be a great idea to sanitize and sterilize everything, but think twice before you do that.  Insulating a child from all germs can be counterproductive not allowing their immune system to mature and create antibodies that will protect them.

*Back in 1960, Basic-H was one of the first environmentally safe household cleaners on the market. Today, millions of bottles later, it’s more loved than ever.  Efficient, powerful, safe, biodegradable, and economical, Basic-H is the world’s most versatile cleaner, period. Sixteen ounces makes up to 90 gallons to clean hard surfaces, woodwork, walls, floors, glass, mirrors, even cars. Anything you can clean with water, you can clean with Basic-H. No wonder it was named an official Earth Day product in 1990.
