A life without toxicity is probably not something we could all achieve. But we all know how extremely important it is to reduce our exposure to toxins. They enter our bodies and corrode it from inside, damaging our systems, and preventing our bodies to self heal and correct. Regardless of wether we notice it or not, toxins can still hurt us. Reducing exposure today is the first step to building health for tomorrow. We are susceptible to toxins from many areas that are outside of our control. So we need to do the best we can at what we can control, like the detergent […]

UPDATE . Vacuum Cleaner Dilemma

Vacuum Cleaner Dilemma | Te Amo Too

This is the post you all have been waiting for: the update on my vacuum cleaner dilemma! I know … very important right?! not! So which one did I choose? The answer is: The Shark Navigator Lift Away.

Vacuum Cleaner Dilemma | Te Amo Too

We interrupt the regularly scheduled post to bring you the vacuum cleaner dilemma. Once upon a time, when my husband and I moved to the United States, we were given an old used Eureka vacuum cleaner. It was actually a very thoughtful gift because a vacuum cleaner is one of those things you really need as soon as you have a house – or an apartment in a married people dorm ;) A few months later, my favorite American holiday came along: Black Friday! Yes! Remember the days when it was actually on Friday?! So we decided to upgrade to a […]

Vinegar is inexpensive, non toxic, and biodegradable. How does it work? The acetic acid kills bacteria and viruses by denaturing (chemically changing) their proteins and fats (what their made of). Does it kill household germs? Yes! Vinegar is 90% effective against bacteria and 80 to 83% effective against viruses and mold. It can also inactivate the flu […]

DIY All Purpose Cleaner | Te Amo Too

Commercial cleaning products are some of the most toxic products we can find in our homes. Some of us can tell by the way our bodies responds to it, through a skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, chemical burns, and sudden headaches. But unfortunately, not everyone has an immediate reaction. Some people may never know how bad it is being exposed to these chemicals until they develop chronic, or long term, side effects later in life. You can only imagine how bad it would be to ingest any of the regular store bought cleaning products, as it happens so many times, specially with […]
