Keep lunch fresh with Rubbermaid's newest invention: LunchBlox containers!
So you can imagine how insanely excited I was to be chosen to review an amazing carpet deep-cleaner from Hoover! (I practically *squeed* and did a dance.) Let me introduce you to the Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner.
Our kids are growing up in a very different world than you or I experienced when we were wee ones. Technology grows by leaps and bounds, and with these advancements come more and more new substances to make everyday living more convenient. Unfortunately, since these advancements come on so quickly, we don't have the time or knowledge enough to test the majority of them for toxins or their impact on growth and development. Some reactions may be obvious, like a reaction to a new chemical detergent. But others are harder to diagnose (with the cause never fully proven, either.)
Here in our household we're making it a priority to eliminate many of the easily-avoidable chemicals in common products. We're in the process of switching from plastic food containers to all metal and glass, which is quite a chore. I never realized how much we rely on plastic these days for just about everything. Cups, plates, kids toys, tooth brushes, medicine bottles, everything. There have been numerous studies linking BPA and other plastics to cancers and other diseases, but since we don't yet have any concrete conclusive results these chemicals are permitted by our regulators. This is just one aspect on our path to healthy living. It can be so overwhelming!
