How To Detoxify Your Washing Machine

One of the worst nightmare horrors that canaries have to contend with is a washing machine that stinks very badly of perfume, toxic fragrance laden detergent, and fabric softener. Detoxifying a washing machine that is this toxic is very stressful and is very involved, but it's worth it to have safe clean fresh air and clean clothes that have no smell or scent. The best way to clean and detoxify the machine is to use a well tested non-toxic earth-friendly mixture that we've been using for many years. Act as if you're going to run a full load of laundry. Pour in one full small or medium box of baking soda, one full small cereal sized bowl of white distilled vinegar, and one cereal sized bowl of Borax and run a regular or large size load with hot water. This method is very effective and depending on how toxic your washing machine is, hopefully the detox will only require a couple loads. It's important to repeat this method five or six times to start. After you've run several loads, open the lid and smell the machine. All the toxic chemical residue has been just sitting inside the washing machine, stinking and polluting it, creating a serious health hazard. The best part about doing this is, providing that either you're the only person using this machine or you are fortunate enough to share the machine with people who are as organic and earth-friendly conscious as you are and use only 100% organic, non-toxic, earth-friendly products, you won't have to repeat this process any more. Good luck, good health, and warm wishes!

The Toxic Caffeine Addiction

Everyone needs their morning cup of java to kick-start their day. It's become as common a daily ritual as showering and brushing your teeth. People cannot seem to survive the daily stresses without having that vital cup of coffee in their hand. It seems that whether surviving a stressful day on the job or at home, a cup of coffee is the main elixir that keeps the human motor running. If you even suggest that a person try a coffee alternative or try one day without drinking it, the dramatic reactions would have you thinking they're taking drugs. It's not the delicious flavour and aroma that have everyone running for a refill. It's the caffeine that permeates every bean.

I've personally consumed a cup of caffeinated coffee and a cup of alternative coffee from a health food store that had zero caffeine in it and the difference is astounding. A nervous person like me cannot consume any amount of caffeine because it's terrible for the heart and nerves. Caffeine is found in coffee, chocolate, soft drinks, and various bottled energy-boost drinks. Studies have shown that even the coffee products that are advertised as containing zero caffeine do in fact contain small trace amounts of caffeine. This is significant for people whose nervous systems cannot tolerate any amount of caffeine. There are ways to get a quick energy boost without dosing your body with caffeine. A navel orange is a great quick boost with instant Vitamin C. Check your local health food store for various alternative non-caffeinated coffee products. You won't get the caffeine jolt, but you'll enjoy the same flavour and your heart will appreciate it.

Organic Beauty

Organic natural beauty is a precious gift and yet it is completely unappreciated and misunderstood. In a world where people are constantly bombarded with commercials telling them which cool new makeup to wear or which new vibrant glowing shampoo to buy, it's no wonder that men and women often feel inadequate and insecure about their appearance. True natural beauty isn't found in a bottle of shampoo that's loaded with 5,000 petro-chemicals and irritants. True natural beauty is found in a mint leaf or a lemongrass plant. Chemically laden perfume and cosmetics are not the solution to having youthful wonderful beauty. There's nothing beautiful or sexy about a product that contains a toxic soup of chemicals. True beauty is a mixture of sandalwood oil, rose hips oil, lemongrass oil, and sap moss extract oil that when mixed form a wonderful blend that creates a silky beautiful shampoo and cheek blush color that enliven the skin cells, not suffocate them. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it absorbs everything you put on it. It's wise then to only put earth-friendly healthy plant pigments on your skin so your internal organs are safe and healthy.

Turn off your television and put away the stinky perfume magazines. Either take some time to go on the Internet and learn how to live in a non-toxic earth-friendly manner or drive to the nearest health food store and learn about earth-friendly products that are safe enough to drink and won't destroy your organs and skin cells.
