Prepare For Spring Cleaning With The Best Non-Toxic Supplies

How the Branch Basics Starter Pack Works

If you’ve been following Lauryn and Michael for a few years, you may know that when they moved to Austin they did a huge overhaul when it came to their household products. Lauryn got rid of everything toxic and replaced them with CLEAN products that work. She even wrote an entire blog post dedicated to all her non-toxic products for you. We’re exposed to so many chemicals these days and when you have kids and dogs you want to make sure that everything in your home is as non-toxic as possible. Not only that, if you’re experiencing headaches, skin rashes or allergies, this is definitely something you should try.

Now, this can seem like an overwhelming task. But start small, go slow and gradually your house will be free of chemicals, fragrance and all the other nasties in most cleaning products. Even the most green, earth-friendly looking brands and bottles can be toxic, so you really need to know what you’re buying.

If you’re new to non-toxic cleaning supplies The Branch Basics Premium Starter Kit is your best friend. You buy the pack and it replaces every single cleaning product you have in your home right now. It’s actually the perfect time to make this change since ‘Spring cleaning’ is near. So if you’re planning to get your shit together (in your house) this Spring we highly recommend Branch Basics.

Lauryn has been using it for years now and yes, it works like a charm and cleans so well, but it leaves your house feeling fresh without all the fake fragrant residue traditional cleaning products leave behind. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, just try Branch Basics, THEN you’ll know what we mean.
