Can Food Allergies Cause Behavior Problems in Children? #4
Hello Everyone, this is article #4 in my series Can Food Allergies Cause Behavioral Problems In Children? There are other items besides food or ingested items that can cause reactions in sensitive people. I will share my experience with cleaning items. We learned early on that many detergents and cleaning supplies were triggers for us.
We stay away from air fresheners, odor eliminators (we had a bad reaction to these and they now put them in a lot of items) perfumes, candles, think twice and try it out if it has a scent. That goes for laundry detergent, fabric softeners, liquid soaps, bath soaps, shampoos, bleach, window cleaners, carpet cleaners, etc.
Items I have been able to use without reactions over the years have been, Cheer Free Laundry Detergent, Dye Free Bounce Dryer Sheets, Lever Soap, Palmolive Dish Detergent and Liquid Soap Detergent, Murphy’s Oil, and Method Cleaning Supplies. There are many old fashion cleaning supplies that work great, baking soda, borax, white vinegar and water. I love my shark steamer, steam cleaning is great!
Watch spraying pesticides, herbicides, scotch guard etc. The more aware you are of the items around you, the more you will be able to pick up any reactions you may have related to these items. There are many natural ways to get the same results, make sure you always check for them.
