For the last couple of months the world has witnessed the birth of a new army, they call themselves the Hinch Army, and they are everywhere. There will be members all around you..
Now this army is fighting dirt. And they are using nuclear weapons to do so.
Sales of certain products endorsed by Mrs Hinch have SOARED. Things have sold out and been auctioned off on ebay for crazy money.
I think cleaning can be a great form of therapy. I certainly enjoy it and from what I have seen of Mrs H, she seems to want to help other people. What is the cost though?
Before I had children I didn’t really believe you could clean without bleach and other, what I now consider to be, toxic products.
(This is when I worked at a cafe all summer and bleached the sink and cleaned the HUGE windows every day.)
So as I was saying, after having children, I changed my mind. Where I live there was a company everyone went wild for that sold chemical free cleaning products. I bought a load of those, and I looked for low chemical and non toxic alternatives to everything. I learned that a lot of antibacterial cleaning sprays are harmful to our lungs and we are inhaling more and more of them all the time. The idea of this at the time terrified me. I was also worried about my children finding cleaning products and getting into them, they are the exploring type so nothing ever really feels safe when they are around.
I have now gone on to be a “rep” for another company selling chemical free/low chemical alternatives. This is not a sales post.
Since I moved away from harsh products I don’t have to worry so much about having as many dangerous chemicals in my home. That alone is the best part for me.
I really love how easy to use they are too, having a cloth which does all the work is exactly what I need in my life as a busy Mam.
One thing I wondered about was germs, would we get ill more without bleach?
The answer is a no! I am very confident that we are getting rid of the bad germs.
So, that’s all I really wanted to say. I think Mrs Hinch is doing a great job at inspiring people. But her methods feel toxic to me.
