Kitchen Detox Challenge (Updated 2019)

Today is the first day of our yearly home detox challenge, and we are first taking on the kitchen. There are many ways you can detox your kitchen, making it safer for you and your family. Let's get started..

The kitchen is the one place my family spends the most amount of time. We cook, often- and when I say "we", I mean my husband. He loves to cook, and I love to clean- so the two of us are quite a good team. Over time, I have been replacing things within the kitchen that are tiptoeing on the side of being eco-friendly. Doing an entire kitchen overhaul takes time, and I have just the tips you need to get started. Download the checklist and print for a step by step guide to use this week in detoxing your kitchen. Links are provided for detox suggestions.
