Cleaning & Thieves





HOW CLEAN IS YOUR CLEANER? 

Most of us just worry about how clean our cleaner will make our bathrooms, benches, dishes etc….however what we should be wondering about more is how ‘clean’ is the actual cleaner?

🙋‍♀️ Think about what you washed your dishes or chopping boards with today - because that will be what you and your family will be ingesting later with your food. Yes the residue from your cleaner can still be on that chopping board, and soaking into the next foods you chop on there - Iare you having an ‘aha’ moment right now?……."I never thought of that" is what most of us are thinking right now!

🙀 Oone thing to note - the cleaning manufacturers DO NOT have to list all the ingredients on the backs of your products - so even if you think you know - you may never know the whole story! They just don’t have to disclose!

👉 Another important reason to find a company that is transparent and lists EVERYTHING!

These days you really need to be a scientist before you know you can safely use 2 different products together - oh and a tip right now - DITCH THE BLEACH and anything that has the words FRAGRANCE!  So what can you use now?

DANGEROUS CHEMICALS IN HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS

Watch this story about a mum who empowered herself!

I bet you see a couple of products you may know!










CHILDHOOD ASTHMA LINKED TO CLEANING PRODUCTS

There is so much research and data about how conventional cleaners affect health - here is one study as reported on Channel 9 news Australia.

Note that children in homes using the most amount of cleaning products were 37% more like to develop asthma or breathing issues by the time they were and the use of scented and spray products most likely to cause respiratory issues.  CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.


5 REASONS

Thieves products make it easy for you to switch out harsh, chemical-filled products in your home with clean, plant-based products you can feel confident using.

Here are the top 5 reasons you should be using a plant-based cleaner.

1. Safety
Have you read the label on the back of a commercial cleaner? Warning! Flammable! Do not ingest! Keep out of reach of children! Many chemicals used in household cleaners have not been tested for safety. Household cleaning supplies are one of the top five substance classes accounting for calls to The NSW Poisons Information Centre!

Kids, babies, and pets are even more vulnerable to chemical exposure because they are smaller and cannot get rid of toxins as easily as adults. It is worth ditching harsh chemicals for a cleaner with plant- and mineral-based ingredients.

2. Air quality
Did you know that indoor air is 5–7 times more polluted than outdoor air? Most cleaning products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)2, (source: Australian State of Environment, soe.environment.gov.au), which have been associated with many health problems. VOCs are released when products are used and can linger in the air long after we clean. When we breathe, we inhale the air—as well as whatever is in the air.

3. Environmental impact
Harsh chemicals found in cleaners are not only potentially harmful to our bodies, but they also have a major impact on the environment and are huge contributors to environmental pollution. Some conventional cleaning products contain ingredients that are toxic, non-biodegradable, and from non-renewable resources like petroleum, so they harm the Earth’s ecosystems. Harsh chemicals may contaminate the water through rivers, streams, and lakes, which affects wildlife, plants, trees, and us! Plus, there are thousands of chemicals that are in cleaning products that have never been tested for safety.

4. Convenience
It’s much easier to clean with a few products that take care of all your cleaning needs, rather than having whole arsenal of potentially toxic products under your sink and in your bathrooms. With Thieves® Household Cleaner, you can tackle multiple cleaning jobs in your home without switching products as you clean! It cleans countertops, windows, mirrors, floors, toilets, showers, and pretty much everything else. Plus, you don’t have to worry about getting bleach stains on your clothes or accidentally mixing dangerous chemicals together. It’s worth a try for the convenience alone.

5. Cost
The cost of buying cleaners is expensive, especially if you have to buy multiple different cleaners. Thieves Household Cleaner is very cost-effective, and it comes in a concentrated form. There are approximately 60 capfuls of the cleaner in a 426 ml bottle. Using the light degreasing ratio, you can get about 60 x all-purpose cleaners.
It’s time you used the easy and safe way to clean your home!



CLEANING HACKS

The Thieves Household Cleaner mentioned earlier is really all you need!  It is so easy to use, simply spray and wipe, however many people like to make all sorts of concoctions for cleaning to enable them to ditch more and more of their old chemical cleaners. 

Here are some other ideas if you like extra oomph for certain areas of your home. 

Oh and yes you aren’t alone if you are one of those people who is having trouble parting with your bleach - but let me tell you your health will thank you for it…...so the floor cleaning hack below is one that all of our ex-bleach lovers love!
 






THE COST

So many people are completely obsessed with Thieves Household Cleaner, and say how it has quite simply changed their lives…...not only because it is amazing at cleaning, but also because of the $’s they are all saving!

Take a look at the picture and see just how budget-friendly it is compared to regular cleaners.

ADD ON the safety and purity aspect for your family's health and that one bottle can last you a very long time and it's a no-brainer!

THIEVES LAUNDRY SOAP

The Young Living Thieves line isn't just household cleaner.  The Thieves oil blend is so beneficial that Young Living created a whole line of products!

Another favourite product in the line is the Thieves Laundry Soap!  Regular companies don’t have to disclose everything they put in their laundry products - that said we do know the basic chemicals used and they are not pretty. All of those toxins leaving residue on your clothes, touching your skin, and being breathed into your respiratory system - are more than likely causing issues for people in your family, and you.

So let me tell you a little about this gem of a product with the help of Young Living.

🌱 With a plant-based formula, Thieves Laundry Soap gently and naturally washes your clothes, leaving them truly clean without any chemical or synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength, leaving your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent. Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula will handle approximately 64 loads.

Primary Benefits
  • The plant-based formula is free from SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), dyes, petrochemicals, formaldehyde, phosphates, synthetic perfume, and optical brighteners
  • The formula uses the power of Thieves, Jade Lemon, and Bergamot essential oils.
  • Use ½ cap for conventional machines
  • Use ¼ cap for high-efficiency machines
  • Use more as needed for large of heavily soiled loads
This product is a member favourite and really does a beautiful job, and leaves your clothes feeling fresh and clean.🌼




THIEVES FRUIT & VEGGIE SOAK

DO YOU rinse your fruit & veg under the tap? Just kind of wave it under there and shake it dry? 

Many of us did - until we discovered that there are MAJOR pesticides and waxes and even shellac (think your apples from the supermarket) on them!

Even those purchasing Organic produce will definitely want to be soaking in this especially thinking about whose hands have touched the produce etc.

👉 So this amazing product is our solution - and it's as simple as adding a little in a bowl, filling with water, and then soaking your fruit & veg!

🌱 It contains amazing essential oils - and the best part - you will find your fruit and veggies lasting TWICE AS LONG as they did before!

🌼 Oh and one more thing - just make sure you are washing your containers with plant-based dish soap - you don’t want to go to all the trouble of cleansing your product or horrible toxins - and then putting it into chemical residue from the washing up!



THIEVES DISH SOAP

What did you wash your chopping boards in this morning - and your plates and cutlery? That’s important because the residue is what you will be consuming with your next meal. Yuk, I know.

This is an amazing high-quality plant-based dish soap - and yes before you ask it doesn’t have the nasties in there so it means it won’t foam the way you are used to - however it isn’t the foam that cleans your dishes…...the foam can cause you health issues….

The best thing about the Dish Soap? It has so many other uses!! Here are 4 of my favourites!

🚘 Wash your car
- just add 2 tablespoons to around 7 litres (2 gallons) of warm water.

💍 Cleaning your jewellery
- Add a drop to your jewellery, massage with a soft cloth or toothbrush, then rinse thoroughly.

🛀 Quick scrub your tub
- visitors coming? Need to clean that bath fast? Squirt into your bathtub, sprinkle with baking soda, and then rinse thoroughly.

🌿 Spruce up your indoor plants
- Add 5 drops of dish soap to a glass spray bottle and fill with water. Shake well before use and spray your plant leaves - then gently wipe clean!



THIEVES KITCHEN & BATH SCRUB

Thieves Kitchen and Bath Scrub gives you the power of a surface scrub free of harmful chemical smells and residue. 

This fabulous scrub gains its tough scrubbing power from:
  • nepheline syenite, a mineral that Young Living obtain from responsibly mined sources in Ontario, Canada; 
  • baking soda that gently absorbs odours; 
  • sodium percarbonate that releases oxygen when combined with water, providing a powerful boost of cleaning power against tough stains; and 
  • Young Living’s signature Thieves blend. 

Designed for use on multiple surfaces, Thieves Kitchen and Bath Scrub is your new naturally derived cleaner: tough on messes and safe for your family.
